Audience Reviews for The Idle Class

    Chaplin is back to the Mutual-style two-reelers with this light comedy, playing two roles in a funny story of mistaken identities. Enjoyable, though not really special.

    Charlie Chaplin plays two roles in this two reel short, both the Tramp and a high society alcoholic husband with mistaken identity and plenty of antics ensuing from this strikingly similar appearance! The film features plenty of gags and slapstick humor and also the usual heart that goes into a Chaplin film. I've only seen a few two-reel Chaplin films (Seen many more Keaton two-reels) but they don't quite get to the level of his feature films as there isn't enough time to elaborate. If you are a Chaplin fan though then this and pretty much any of his work is appreciated and sought after and this short is no different!

    This movie is funny for the most part, but it really needed to be longer and have more dialogue, I think. It could have been a really great movie with more time, the story is really good.

    Mr. Chaplin's first take on mistaken identity (which continued through "The Pilgrim" and "The Great Dictator"), as the Tramp gets embroiled in high-society blunder. One of Chaplin's best shorts.
