I liked how they had everyone on skates, it was pretty funny, but the story needs more attention in this one, it doesn't have much of a story, and it would have been funnier with a good story behind it.

Classic Charlie Chaplin silent movie. Charlie is a clumsy waiter who spends his lunchtime at the roller rink, where he meets his love interest and gets invited to a party.

There is plenty of fun provided by Charlie Chaplin on the rollers and he displayed a surprising cleverness on them. A number of funny falls occurred as was looked for, with Charlie outshining and outwitting any of the others on the floor. When he couldn't trip the "big guy" who was attempting to cop his girl, he used his old standby, the bamboo cane.

Running at 24 minutes in length, Chaplin's two-reel short "The Rink" a.k.a. "Rolling Around" features Chaplin as both a waiter and on skates throughout this series of misadventures. The short is classic Chaplin and has it's share of gags and slapstick as well as his overall charm and warmth present in all of his character portrayals. This is actually his eighth of the "golden dozen" shorts that he did with Mutual Studios and are every bit as funny and historic as his features!

Chaplin highlights his roller-skating talent in this briskly paced 20 minuter set around Charlie as a waiter.
There's some nice somewhat more subtle jokes centred around Charley working out the bill by seeing what customers have split onto their clothes, and a mix-up in the kitchen leading to a diner served a scrubbing brush.
Charlie's character is not a complete down and out, or very wealthy, but more fun loving and fancy free, and once he's given an hour of free time he hits the rink.
This is very much a standard Chaplin early movie that benefits from his skating ability and charm, although the version I saw is a poor cheap money grab as it needed some restoration.

Very entertaining, hilarious Chaplin short that shows off his roller-skating ability.

Among Chaplin's finest moments from the 1910s. The scenes at the rink are absolutely hilarious.

This Mutual short is another one of Chaplin's "formula shorts." The formula in this film being: The Tramp + A Roller Rink = Laughter. Much laughter.

Charlie plays a waiter who loves to roller skate, and (big surprise here, just warning you so you don't get too startled) manages to get into some mischief with his boss and some skaters at the rink.

The Rink is one damn funny film. The first third of the film isn't as funny, but as soon as Charlie steps onto the roller rink, prepare a coffin. Because you will die of laughter. The story is also actually quite amusing and concludes in a rather hilarious explosion of silliness. It's not one of Charlie's funniest, but witnessing his largely impressive and humorous skating skills is well well worth worth it it.
