Audience Reviews for His New Job (Charlie's New Job)
This one was a bit better. It questioned society's norms and the humor was better since Charlie was aware of his surroundings and trying to cause a little mischief at times. He tries to change the rules at the studio hiring office but finally gets a job on a movie set. He's clumsy doing all kinds of set construction work and struggles with every kind of authority he meets. The limp sword is hilarious too. Again it ends with a manic anarchic fight.
Early Chaplin short with lots of physical comedy. Ben Turpin is great as the film extra, coordinating his facial expressions with his movements to convey pure comic effect. Chaplin's role here, although different from his immortal Tramp character, is very similar in appearance; only the unconditional sensibility of the latter that made an icon out of him was completely absent here; one-sided slapstick hilarity is all.
8/10. This wonderful Charlie Chaplin short, Charlie is interviewing for a job, some wonderful slapstick scenes with his classic touch of humor. He is amazingly funny, the way he moves and much of his humor is in just simple touches. A delightful film.
