A melancholy comedy that sparkles with human compassion. It struck me a bit as the Richard II to City Light's Hamlet, a prototype for a masterpiece that shines brightly on its own, suffering only by comparison to the brighter light of its predecessor. The Kid, as the first film to combine comedy and sentiment, was ground-breaking, and Chaplin was just feeling out the future of comedy that would lead to his later and greater work.
It's still probably my third favorite Chaplin feature (no faint praise), though it may well have been worth seeing for Jackie Coogan alone without Chaplin's expert hand.
An enjoyable film about the love of film.
Just a fun, feel-good, human-driven film. If anything, it's just too short.
Fun, if a little cheesy.
This is an absolutely beautifully shot movie. Its plot is a little heavy at times, but ultimately the characters feel very real and the movie is pretty brilliant.
