Chaplin's sentimental politics and peerless comic invention dovetailed more perfectly in this film than in any other he made.
100
An ungainly masterpiece, but Chaplin's ungainliness is something one can grow fond of.
100
Chicago Reader
Charlie Chaplin finally got around to acknowledging the 20th century in this 1936 film, which substitutes machine-age gags for the fading Victoriana of his other work. Consequently, it's the coldest of his major features, though no less brilliant for it.
80
Village Voice
Remains Chaplin's most sustained burlesque of authority.
