Critic Reviews for The Rink
Those wiseacres who go around telling every one that the Chaplin vogue is waning seem to have another guess coming.
Audience Reviews for The Rink
Running at 24 minutes in length, Chaplin's two-reel short "The Rink" a.k.a. "Rolling Around" features Chaplin as both a waiter and on skates throughout this series of misadventures. The short is classic Chaplin and has it's share of gags and slapstick as well as his overall charm and warmth present in all of his character portrayals. This is actually his eighth of the "golden dozen" shorts that he did with Mutual Studios and are every bit as funny and historic as his features!
I liked how they had everyone on skates, it was pretty funny, but the story needs more attention in this one, it doesn't have much of a story, and it would have been funnier with a good story behind it.
Classic Charlie Chaplin silent movie. Charlie is a clumsy waiter who spends his lunchtime at the roller rink, where he meets his love interest and gets invited to a party.
