  1. Hugo Ducat Segal's rating of the film The Kid

    "The Kid" is the cinematic epitome of meshing humor with heart. A dramedy that has charmed and warmed the hearts of cinephiles and casual moviegoers for nearly a century. And as a depiction of an impoverished America predating the Great Depression, you could make the argument that this film was ahead of its time.

  2. Thomas Dods's rating of the film The Kid

    Chaplin’s first full length mixes genius slapstick comedy with profound human drama, with the result possibly being his most emotional and compassionate film. It is also pointed social commentary of the plight of the poor. The sequence where ‘The Kid’ is stolen by the authorities still stands up as devastating.

  3. erikdylansr's rating of the film The Kid

    'The Kid' is a heartwarming affair with Chaplin delivering all the laughs and all the cries that you would expect.

  4. Marco B.'s rating of the film The Kid

  5. Jonathan Kelsall's rating of the film The Kid

    Chaplin's first feature length is a personal one showing the poverty of his own London upbringing and the emotional with the death of his own son 10 days prior to production, it's little surprise that the chemistry between Chaplin and Coogan comes across so touching and strongly performed but as a comedy duo it works just as well with the tramp and the kid playing off each other for well timed punchlines and falls.

  6. Graveyard Poet's rating of the film The Kid

    Chaplin's heartwarming story of the Tramp becoming an adoptive father to a little boy.

  7. Saray Benítez's rating of the film The Kid

  8. Daniel's rating of the film The Kid

  9. I.Camera's rating of the film The Kid

    Perhaps the best Chaplin films are where, as in The Kid, he mixed his routine up, in this case introducing a social melodrama that reflected his own poor upbringing in the East End. Few people find his tramp character funny these days, but that shouldn't detract from the skill and charm of films like this one, especially its iconic chase across the NY rooftops and his ducking and weaving around a neighborhood bully.

  10. chloe's rating of the film The Kid

    Witty and heartwarming.

  11. Tibulle85's rating of the film The Kid

  12. Thomas K.'s rating of the film The Kid

    My 20 year old self, watching this with my 47 year old mother and 79 year old grandmother : all of us laughing, crying, engaging with each other, sharing and bonding effortlessly. On New Year's Day in 2020, almost 100 years after it was released. Absolute timeless genius. Merci Charlot :)

  13. Simone Berlioz's rating of the film The Kid

    Para lograr que el niño llorara en esta película. Chaplin ordeno quitarle su perro al ñiño (de la vida real). Y se lo llevaran para matarlo, hasta hicieron un disparo; y el niño penso que era cierto y el resultado esa escena. Muy premiada en su tiempo, contado por Jackie Coogan muchos años despues.

  14. angeldromero's rating of the film The Kid

    A heart-warming film. This a prime example of one of the most significants contributions of Chaplin to cinema, drama and comedy working together as one to compliment each other.

  15. Iulian's rating of the film The Kid

    In this "one of the great comedies off all time" appears a heartfelt question: who is the parent, the one which gave birth or the one which raised him/her? Beautiful mixture of laughter and sadness, a story about the need for love and longing.

  16. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film The Kid

    The Tramp: an objectively bad father.

  17. Frode Kinserdal's rating of the film The Kid

  18. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Kid

    More a social commentary than a comedy to be honest, but it is an important comment on child wellfare, poverty and women who leave their children on the doorstep of others. Chaplin is completely overshadowed by the kid too who charms and warms the viewer in every single scene.

  19. Morten Halskov Jensen's rating of the film The Kid

    Set 12.9.18 sammen med Karin. En helt vidunderlig film. Der er gribende scener i den film, som bare ikke laves mere. Scenen hvor de spiser pandekager og hvor vagabonden finder barnet, og sende hvor de arbejder sammen i glarmesterbranchen.

  20. Psycoteraphy's rating of the film The Kid

  21. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film The Kid

  22. jewelsofglory's rating of the film The Kid

    Chaplin’s empathy for the poor and downtrodden brings a smile and a tear.

  23. dionysus67's rating of the film The Kid

    One of the great Chaplin movies which may lack the most socially biting satire of 'City Lights' or 'Modern Times', yet moves with its playful resourcefulness, bringing Chaplin close to the kid. What unites both is divergent thinking one that eschews the linear patterns of adults and builds creative problem-solving processes. These suffuse, as expected, this melodrama which culminates in a funny scene among angels.

  24. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film The Kid

    Chaplin’s first feature was a great success. Starring the Tramp raising an orphaned boy as his own. He knew exactly how to make his audience laugh and cry.
