    The Little Tramp as a family man? It just doesn't seem right. Charlie takes his wife and two kids for an afternoon scenic cruise around the bay. Most of the time is spent on a rickety car, seasickness and a hard-to-assemble deck chair, plus there's a funny closing sequence involving sticky, spilled tar. A rather half-hearted effort. Note: I was surprised to see someone called a "stupid ass" in this film from a more innocent time.

    A very short (17 minutes) two-reel comedy that relies solely on sight gags and not up to the usual standard of Chaplin's other shorts and features. While there are some humorous bits such as walking over the lady onto the boat, most of the gags fail to impress. While this is nowhere near a "bad film" it certainly isn't Chaplin's best and far from his masterpieces, which were many. The film lacked a social commentary or any other deeper meaning in it's story and that made it rely solely on it's sight gags. All in all, I'll take and definitely appreciate viewing and acquiring any and all of Chaplin's works and this is no different but it's not one of his best.

    An early Chaplin short that showcased the Tramp not as a bum with a heart of gold but as a normal middle-class man who only wanted his family to have "A Day's Pleasure". The climactic "tar" sequence was hilarious and masterfully choreographed.

    The fourth short in the set seems like a step back in many ways. It was apparently a film made very quickly while he was preparing for his first feature, and it kind of shows. There?s nothing too bad about it, but it?s awefully slapstick and doesn?t show the same level of satiric wit that?s in Shoulder Arms or A Dog?s Life. Still, it has some amusing bits.
