Attenborough's craftsmanlike biopic of the cane-twirling celluloid clown skims most surfaces, but there are rewards to be found in the acting department. Cameos are uniformly good, but Downey towers above them all. The mass youth market may not give a toss who the Little Tramp was, but the lead helps make this a much more approachable prospect for regular movie-goer than you'd expect.
