  1. Max Seqgar's rating of the film The Idle Class

    Funny, though good thing Chaplin stuck to movies and not music as the score for this one sucked big time.

  2. Mahda Purmahdi's rating of the film The Idle Class

    The scene with the husband stuck in the armor could definitely inspire Woody Allen!

  3. trugschluss's rating of the film The Idle Class

    chaplin as great as always...still love to see his work...

  4. Albrecht B. Christoph's rating of the film The Idle Class

    Wunderbar, sensibel und einfach auch lustig. Gut, dass er dem Typ Schluss noch eine mitgibt. Ich will sie alle sehen.

  5. Dominic Rainsford's rating of the film The Idle Class

    Somehow, Chaplin fully embodies his twin comic personae, deals with the issues of his own time, but looks at the audience with what could be 21st-century eyes. The last couple of seconds are splendidly defiant and uningratiating.

  6. Log Lady's rating of the film The Idle Class

    Some funny moments, but neither structurally nor thematically as sound as Chaplin's other work.

  7. Denis Umpleby's rating of the film The Idle Class

    Clever. Funny. Sweet. The classic traits of a Chaplin Film.

    Wonderful in its simplicity, its brilliant humor, and its unpretentious criticism of the idle "classes".

  13. rachel's rating of the film The Idle Class

    My first Chaplin film. Quite impressed, but I'm hoping his others are better.

  14. Weston Campbell's rating of the film The Idle Class

  15. Den-Leroy Kangalee's rating of the film The Idle Class

    Although I prefer late Chaplin to early Chaplin - "The Idle Class" is hilarious. Chaplin's light-hearted barbs at the rich are always appreciated. prefer his darker, more savage critiques of Capitalism ("Monsieur Verdoux," etc) but - hey, It's Chaplin. What more needs to be said? He had more talent in his foot than most "actors" or "directors" have in their entire bodies. Even when he's bad he's great.

  16. Lucas Gomes's rating of the film The Idle Class

  19. Ethan's rating of the film The Idle Class

    Nobody played golf like Chaplin did. Comedic gold.

  20. msmichel's rating of the film The Idle Class

    Late Chaplin short that has some incredibly funny moments throughout in a tale of mistaken identity when the tramp wanders onto a golf course.

  21. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film The Idle Class

    There's one of the most brilliant scenes of cinema history. http://youtu.be/6tWKhFSwPi8

  22. Michael Harbour's rating of the film The Idle Class

    The Idle Class: Lots of great bits, of course, and a decent mistaken identity story. Not tightly structured as Chaplin's better work though.

  23. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Idle Class

    Chaplin plays dual roles in this comedy that is by no means a perfect film but contains many pleasant moments.
