Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The picture runs a trifle too long, but the hilarious, hip-hurrah comedy finale is worth waiting for."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"The frame is always static but the agitation within keeps getting cranked up into combustion"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"... it's very much a Keystone Komedy: the same simple visual style, the same pratfall gags, even the Keystone Kops pouring in for the finale..."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Parallax View
"Particularly noteworthy as featuring early Chaplin tramp character, but not as funny as later Chaplin work."
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"The first feature-length comedy film, and one of the unfunniest films ever made."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
"Museum piece slapstick comedy with the Keystone Kops and Charlie Chaplin that spoofs a gold-digger."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
