  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Easy Street

    C'est avec une extraordinaire accumulation de hasards bienheureux, que le frêle et lunaire Charlot va se débarrasser d'une incroyable brute épaisse, sans coup férir ni excès de combativité, simplement secondé par une chance phénoménale et une exemplaire et redoutable naïveté qui le fait gagner à chaque fois... www.cinefiches.com

  3. SiIencio's rating of the film Easy Street

    The always socially-aware Chaplin here addressing the evils of poverty and street violence through the universal language of slapstick. Full of pathos and comedy with an indeed transgressive-for-the-times twist with the inclusion of a sequence on drug abuse.

  5. Des Horne's rating of the film Easy Street

  6. Richard Doyle's rating of the film Easy Street

    The Tramp reforms and becomes a cop in one of the toughest streets in town. His efforts are thwarted by big brutish bully Eric Campbell. He is pursued by Campbell while trying to woo lovely Edna Purviance. Like all of Chaplin's shorts for Mutual, this is a gem.

  7. msmichel's rating of the film Easy Street

    Classic Chaplin sort finding our tramp becoming a beat cop on Easy Street and up against a massive thug and a series of low lives. Tons of great gags and even a somewhat subversive side.

  8. porcyk's rating of the film Easy Street

    An accidental drug injection comedy dénouement for the ages.

  9. Cal Cleary's rating of the film Easy Street

    A solid Chaplin short, though there's little particularly special about this one. Still, fun to see some Chaplin fight choreography, and there were a couple really great physical gags.

  10. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Easy Street

    Funny to see the light-hearted reference to heroin there!

  11. Joe Pryweller's rating of the film Easy Street

    One of my favorite Chaplin shorts. Not only are the gags great but the story and background are deeper than a lot of his early films. Chaplin hearkens back to his youth on the not-so-easy streets of South London, with street gangs, charities, dope addicts and mission houses, with the innocent but subversive tramp at the center. "Love backed by force" is the message at the end.

  13. Clay_Carter's rating of the film Easy Street

    At odds with a mother, a beauty, a thief, a brute, a junkie and a gang of miscreants and in the place of an onslaught of gags, this Chaplin shows off his physical capability; whether hurdling in and out of open windows, slipping down stairs, sliding down a pole or jousting with the brute, the momentum is quite palpable. Violence abound, a body, as limp as a doll, is used as a weapon in one of the pivotal scenes.

  14. Rhondo Alameda's rating of the film Easy Street

    They just don't make 'em like this anymore. The gritty looking print makes it just that much more intriguing.

  15. Shawn Spitler's rating of the film Easy Street

    Not his funniest but digestible in this short form.

  16. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Easy Street

    A really wonderful short! The main attraction is Chaplin's scrawny charm and acrobatics pitted against a well-built thug, but you can already see the way he used comedy to address poverty and cruelty (themes of his childhood). The finale, where he gets strength from accidentally poking himself with a junkie's needle, is a corker.

  17. AhmedFayed's rating of the film Easy Street

    Watching Easy Street made me realize how much Chaplin's magical ways of making us laugh, have been copied by generations of actors!

  18. El Biffo's rating of the film Easy Street

    The usually so anti-establishment Charlie becomes a cop! (He needs the money). Mostly a lot of cheesy slapstick-thugs chasing Charlie around, and Charlie hitting them on the head with his nightstick, but I'm giving this one an extra star for the luridness of showing a junkie shooting up.

  19. Bernardo Anderson's rating of the film Easy Street

    One of the better Mutual films from Chaplin. It has heart, it's funny, and there's a lot of choreography. It's a sweet little movie.

  20. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Easy Street

    One of Chaplin's best mutual pictures, especially noteworthy because of the choreography of masses and individuals.

  21. John Crawford's rating of the film Easy Street

  22. salviaplath's rating of the film Easy Street

  24. Dodd Alley's rating of the film Easy Street

    Before there was parkour, or Jackie Chan, there was this guy! Chaplin did his physical schtick with class and hilarity. This short is classic and I am still smiling.
