The Gold Rush (1925)

Entertainment Rating: 3 of 5

This silent film frequently pops up as one of Charlie Chaplin’s best films, and one that kids love because there is no dialogue to have to follow. However, it is rather long. Most old comedies have some good routines during the film, but they try too hard to tie in a story around those routines. It’s much more enjoyable to fast-forward to the next fun scene. The scene in the trailer is one of the good ones, you might recognize Johnny Depp's imitation of it in Benny and Joon, another good show.

Moral Rating: 3 of 5

Like Marx Brothers, nothing here other than good wholesome entertainment for the entire family.
