too simple a plot--too much like ordinary slapstick, 7 May 2006
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

This is one of 5 Chaplin that are on the first DVD of Chaplin's Essanay Comedies. In general, compared to volume 2, the shorts on volume 1 aren't as well-made--because the DVDs are arranged chronologically. Chaplin's skill as a film maker and actor appeared to improve through his stay with Essanay Studios.

Charlie spends most of this film drinking and fighting with Ben Turpin. Later, a man and wife check in the hotel room across from their room and hilarity does not necessarily result. This is a standard slapstick-type film with lots of hitting and over-acting. Chaplin's genius is not exactly evident here--just slapping, pretending to get drunk and flirting with the wife. Nothing new or interesting here.
