Weak entry is stuff you've seen before
20 September 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Weak entry in the Our Gang films is like several other of the shorts where the gang decides to put on a show. The only real difference is that the budget is clearly bigger and the film looks slightly better.

The plot is that the gang put on the Aladdin tale complete with dancing girls, songs and monkeys. Its so familiar in the way its done that I'm left to wonder if the film uses stock footage from earlier films. Whats worse is that the songs and dancing derail the rest of the film since running a scant 10 minutes the film barely has time to build up any sort of momentum. The only way this is worth seeing it is if you stumble on it or see it as part of a collection.
