You Might Need Some Hash

All About Hash (1940)

** (out of 4)

No, this isn't the long-long sequel to REEFER MADNESS but instead it's a rather bland entry in the Our Gang series at MGM. Mickey shows up at the clubhouse upset that his father and mother are constantly fighting on Monday's because daddy doesn't like hash. The kids decide to put on a radio show so that they can teach the parents not to fight so that Mickey isn't sad. ALL ABOUT HASH is a pretty silly entry in the series not because it's funny or tries to be overly funny but instead it comes across as silly because the film tries way too hard to be cute. The entire film has Robert Blake appearing either crying or sad and this here was meant to make us care more about his situation. I will admit that I thought Blake was quite charming in the role and he manages to milk these scenes but the story still doesn't work. The entire thing is just way too cute for its own good and I do have to question how the kids got on the radio so easily but I guess this would be going too far. There are a few funny jokes from Spanky and Buckwheat is the butt of a racially insensitive joke but I will admit that it made me laugh because of the way Alfalfa delivered it.
