"Historically, it's a joke, crushing chronology, distorting characters, trivializing film history, but all that could be forgiven if it only had a brain, or a mind, or a heart." By Louis Black. [Austin Chronicle] (January 15, 1993)
"It's a monumental biopic that cheapens the hero's successes by glossing over the failures that surely also shaped the man." By Rita Kempley. [Washington Post] (January 08, 1993)
"Based on Chaplin's factually airbrushed 'My Autobiography' and David Robinson's 'Chaplin: His Life and Art,' the movie gives you a little bit of everything and, therefore, nothing." By Desson Howe. [Washington Post] (January 08, 1993)
