Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that kids will laugh themselves silly at the slapstick antics of Charlie Chaplin. Though younger ones (6-8) may not appreciate the heavy themes of the film, those moments will have a strong impact on 'tweens. Chaplin gets himself into dangerous situations -- such as driving drunk and mishandling of a pistol -- but always gets out safely. Kids may want to imitate Chaplin's acrobatic slapstick. The film contains depictions of suicidal depression and society's unfairness at judging people solely on their wealth.
