Again, Ben Turpin was great if not better than Chaplin's performance here. As usual, there's lots of kicks, slaps, punches and a freefall. But what made this Essanay short work is the chemistry between Turpin and Chaplin; The rest is a usual exercise of comic excesses, and part of Chaplin's continuing dress rehearsals into greater things.
The video I saw wasn't a very good transfer. However I don't know if there are other copies with more complete footage or if this is pretty much the best available. Charlie works with four of his regular collaborators, Turpin, Jamison, Purviance, and White. As one of the versions of the title states this is all about a drunken daze. Pratfalls and slapstick all happen through accidents. Charlie doesn't appear to be aware of most of what's going on. So there is not as much social commentary going on in this one. The dandy seems stuck up and Charlie and Ben are just trying to enjoy themselves, but flailing arms and random pokes only lead to a manic fight between Charlie and Ben in the end.
