Generally as a rule, I don't go below 3 stars on a bad kids movie unless it is a real stinker. I didn't like the last Little Rascals movie, and as bad as that one was as compared to the original, this one is worse than that one.
The characters were reproduced horribly down to Alfalfa's fake cow lick. It is as if they attempted to parody the original. This film combines several of the original episodes into one as the gang tries to raise money to save grandma's bakery. I couldn't help but cringe at the climax as "The International Silver String Submarine Band" performed Sonny and Cher as opposed to the wonderful original where all the gang members sang "The Man on the Flying Trapeze." If this was a play, Spanky would have been booed off stage.
If they couldn't make a film better than this, they should not have even tried. It was a pathetic attempt.
