Makin' A Movie With The Little Rascals
6 May 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

After thoroughly disrupting the opening of a new Hollywood movie, the Gang decides to make their own film, The Misterryus Mistery. At THE BIG PREMIERE, with the neighbor kids in attendance, cinematic chaos ensues...

Few real laughs in this otherwise innocuous little film. Made after MGM got direct control of the Gang, and with the kids themselves noticeably growing up, it bears scant resemblance to the Rascals' classics of yesteryear.
