Kids may enjoy the slapstick of this modern reworking of the old Our Gang comedies, but parents who grew up watching them on TV (or grandparents who saw them at theaters) will wonder why anyone would want to be involved in this pathetic remake. Directed by Penelope Spheeris, the film takes look-alike kids and casts them as Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, and the rest, minus any sense of what made the old Hal Roach comedies funny. Instead of kids being kids, these are kids doing shtick while recycling such old bits as the He-Man Woman Haters Club, the kids' go-cart race, and Spanky and Alfalfa dressing as girls. Devoid of charm or wit. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Purchased as a gift for young grandson. Good video quality. Replayed over and over resulting in hours of delighted squeals. That says it all.Published 7 months ago by DJ
My granddaughters loved this movie. My kids watched the old little rascals when they were young. Kids love them and they are funny.Published 9 months ago by Cindy Worden
Cute movie the cast is almost entirely made up of 5-7 year olds so my kids really got a kick out of it! Lots of laughs!Published 14 months ago by G., Ridgetown, ON
