Kyle: I loved this! Basing the story in the eyes of a child gives it a dreamlike quality. It allows the magical realism to feel natural. Plus it's pretty funny. After this first watch I'm not entirely sure what that last 30 minutes is about, but now I want to watch the 5 hour mini-series to understand it more. [Rating: 4.5 out of 5.]
Dave: I was pretty confused. I didn't find anything…

Dave: I'm a wet blanket and don't enjoy having fun. I haven't laughed in two decades so I felt this movie was a threat. Also there's too much pink. (Kyle has paraphrased what he remembers Dave saying.) [Rating: 3 out of 5.]

Kyle: A wonderful film that shows why Charlie Chaplin is considered a master. But, understandably, you can kind of see the seams in this 90 year old movie.
Dave: I really liked this too. It's grand in scope, it's funny, and it's moving. But nobody, outside of film students and movie nerds, is going to sit down and watch this.
