The Perfect Sean Connery Movie According to Rotten Tomatoes


At a time where the Tomatometer acts as a helpful guide through the crowded landscape that is modern media, the review aggregator is often given more legitimacy than it perhaps deserves — especially since Rotten Tomatoes has, and will likely again, be hacked in the future. The site has also produced some interesting, and often questionable rankings in its time. There’s only two perfect sci-fi movies, apparently, and Harrison Ford’s highest-rated films are “The Conversation” and “Apocalypse Now.”

With that said, let’s turn our attention to Ford’s “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” co-star Sean Connery, and see what the Tomatometer has determined as the late star’s greatest contribution to cinema. Surely, one of the aforementioned Sidney Lumet movies? Or perhaps the highest-rated James Bond movie on RT, “Goldfinger”? Well, it’s neither of those. According to the site, Connery’s best movie is actually “Darby O’Gill and the Little People.”

This 1959 Disney adventure from director Robert Stevenson is set in Ireland, and stars Albert Sharpe as Darby O’Gill, the caretaker of Lord Fitzpatrick’s estate. After he’s fired from his position, he’s replaced by a younger alternative in the form of Connery’s Michael McBride. The rest of the film sees Darby transported to the land of the Leprechauns, where he meets their king, Brian (Jimmy O’Dea). After escaping, Darby finds that he’s accidentally brought Brian with him. The Leprechaun king then grants Darby three wishes, but his wishes have unintended consequences.

This Disney version of an Irish folktale currently has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, though that’s based on just 16 reviews. Still, that’s enough to make it the highest-rated in the RT ranking of Connery films.
