TV Guide review

They're a Weird Mob (1966)

Chiari leaves his native Italy to become a journalist for his brother's small Sidney paper. However, when he arrives in Australia, he discovers that no paper exists, and his brother has walked out with the initial investments. As a man of honor, Chiari vows to pay back the money to Dunne, the lass who is the victim of his brother's unscrupulous behavior. He gets a job as a bricklayer and attempts to romance Dunne, only to be met with rebuff after rebuff. Performances are varied and the direction is forced in parts, but overall, this pleasant farce provides some good, light entertainment.
