Too much of the monkey!
1 February 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

Spanky, Alfalfa and the gang play a bunch of wanna-be caddies. It's a great situation for Our Gang, unfortunately it's wasted. A few scenes of them playing golf with gardening tools are good for some laughs, but eventually the film makes a major mistake. Rather than focus on the great talents of it's young stars, the film spends way too much time focusing on their pet monkey. All the chimp does is break golf clubs, eat golf balls and make whoopee cusion noises. It's not very funny.
