The Rounders (1914)
Those more accustomed to Chaplin's masterpieces should be entertained by this rather more anarchic approach, which in some places is almost along the lines of The Hangover. I mean, how can you not like a film where Fatty Arbuckle punches and chokes his wife for laughs and the movie ends with the two leads passed out in a sinking rowboat?
Goes to show, the movies have only ever needed a handful of basic plots, and "drunk hijinks" is one of the most enduring.
