Silent films never fail to put a smile on my face. The tone is goofy and the stories are so bloated and over-the-top that I just can't help but become giddy with glee for the entire runtime. This rings incredibly true with "Safety Last!", a film that is drenched in dramatic irony and quirky characters. It's entertaining, short and incredibly sweet, so what is not to love?
