Audience Reviews for Work (Charlie at Work) (Charlie the Decorator)

In "Work," Chaplin is not so much a tramp but a mundane laborer, as he and his older boss try to wallpaper a room. The opening sequence with him pulling a heavy horse cart is more inspired than the central gag, which is essentially no more than various people being slapped in the face with white wallpaper glue. Sort of a variation on the classic pie fight. Meanwhile, a gas stove keeps flaring up with little explosions. Boom!
