Fair.
24 January 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the second Our Gang comedy with Alfalfa--and the first where he was a co-star. The film begins with the boys being messy and dirty old boys. However, when a cute little girl moves in the neighborhood, the boys quickly clean up their act. Spanky quickly rushes over to the house and meets the father (Dick Elliot) and soon invites himself inside to see the daughter. Once inside the house, however, Spanky finds that Alfalfa is already there and the two rivals spend the rest of the film trying to one-up the other and impress the girl.

While not a terrible idea for a film, this one suffers from not going particularly anywhere once the rivals meet. A cute idea that simple didn't deliver much in the way of laughs.

By the way, you may well recognize Dick Elliot, as he was a very familiar face on TV--playing a lot of folks, including the mayor on "The Andy Griffith Show".
