The Little Rascals (1994)

Terminally inoffensive update of the classic Hal Roach shorts-- from
unlikely choice Penelope Spheeris (WAYNE'S WORLD, THE BEVERLY
HILLBILLIES)-- that stars a cast of unknowns as "Our Gang." The kids can
barely act, the editing is a mess, and the plot has more holes than
60-year-old film stock.  That said, the whole thing has a breezy,
infectious charm that (almost) overpowers the technical demerits.

Kids should love it, though adults may groan at gags that are older than
they are.  A half-dozen well-placed celebrity cameos help, as does the
blooper reel over the end credits.

Grade: C+  (just otay)
