The New Janitor Reviews

The janitor of a bank saves the day by preventing a bank robbery. Chaplin did not produce his best work during his time at Keystone, where his views on comedy filmmaking contrasted Mark Sennett's. However, it still is admirable that Chaplin is able to get an original kind of comedy from such a straight forward storyline, where characters' emotions are given time to be explored.

Another Chaplin short from 1914

The film has a pretty well-defined plot, an oddity at this stage of Chaplin's career. But that keeps the film moving, even though much of it isn't very funny--that is unless you get a kick out of seeing people find endless reasons to punch each other in the face.
