The Freshman ★★★½

It’s super awkward and cringe-worthy to watch Harold Lloyd (or Lamb, I guess) pretend to be cool during his first semester as a freshman in college. Lloyd’s sense of comedy still feels both timeless and modern, which I feel greatly separates his caliber from Chaplin and Keaton. I don’t necessarily think this is as strong and inventive as Safety Last!, but The Freshman is still delightful, energetic, and thoroughly enjoyable.
