Kids may take delight in 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 any individual 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

Great Family Movie
This movie is a great family film. The kids were absoulutely spectacular. I first saw this movie when I was about the same age as most of the kids in the movie when it came out, and I must tell you, I’m fourteen years old and I’m lost without it. (our movie was lent to someone and never came back)even when I’m twenty, I’ll still love it. Porky and Buckwheat had some great moments:”We Got A Dollar”, “I’ve Got Two Pickles,” or when they tell Darla the “love” poem from Alfalfa. (I still remember it: Dear Darla, I hate your stinkin’ guts. You make me vomit. Your scum between my toes. Love, Alfalfa.) It’s a great movie!

Comically Classic, brillantly Bright, 1994 Little Rascals
This was a sweet, laugh-out-loud funny movie, good for all ages, this is an updated verison of those irresistable “Our Gang” sit comes. It is definetly worth your time in watching, the closest swear word is “Suck” so its good for children to watch and its an energetic fun blast to watch!~
