This film is sooo funny! How Buster Keaton just keeps a straight face the entire time. The violence may be frightening for some, but for me, it's just comical (and it's supposed to be). Little children may not understand some aspects of the story, so parents might have to explain.

Great role models

super funny silent comedy has destructive sequence and smoking

funnier than The General and Young Sherlock, this Buster Keaton comedy is also the most violent, but the whole movie does have a strong comedic undertone. still, young children may be frightened by the big hurricane scene at the end, with lots of crumbling houses and widespread destruction. there are also some punches thrown, and some pipe smoking.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
