PAYING MR. MCGETTY REVIEWED
“Paying Mr. McGetty” is a fun low budget action comedy about trying to make it through the day. Well, that’s if your day involves sleeping with a mafia kingpin’s daughter and staring down eviction. Did I also mention that said kingpin had sicced Don Wilson after you? Things go crazy, as we watch a dude trying to survive everything and just get his work done. There’s nothing deep here, as a surface level read gets so much done.
After my third time watching the film, I realized that I didn’t even notice how low-key most of the action scenes were staged. Hell, I took it as a day-in-the-life comedy. There was a time in the 1980s where films like that could survive and thrive. Taylor and Wilson play well off each other, but there are just pieces in a larger world here. Hell, I feel odd saying this, but I want to learn more about this world. Could we be staring down a possible Mr. McGetty shared universe?
Maybe not, but I dig communities of odd people just trying to make it work. It won’t be for everyone, but I recommend checking it out.
