Audience Reviews for In the Park


The weakest of the 5 Chaplin Essanay shorts that I've currently seen. Aside from the forgettable scenario, Chaplin has not been successful here in transforming the limitations of a park into comic gold.

A lot of Chaplin's first movies aren't really that good, but this one was quite funny, although it might be a bit similar to some other shorts of his from that time. Among other things the hotel used for filming in this film is the same as in several of his other films.

The description makes it sound better than it looks. I don't recall anything about jumping in a lake, either. I thought it was hard to tell what the hell was going on. It's funny watching Chaplin tumble down steps, though.
