Mokey
29 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have read all of what was said about this movie. Yesterday was the first time that I have ever seen this movie. I enjoyed it. I like the way that the movie gave the "Black characters more freedom". What I didn't like was the first time that this young child meets his new step mom she calls him Dummy and she did it several times. That really disturbed me I had to but on the caption button to make sure that I was hearing correct. All this little boy needed was some love and understanding, and he would not have been in so much trouble. Because to me he was a normal 8yr old boy, and boys will be boys. Even when he ran away and was gone for several weeks and the father finally found him; He beat him and left the very next day. He being a father should have taken the time and stayed with his son a day or so more and talked to him and try to find out the problem. But in all I though this movie was cute. And to see Robert Blake at such a young age being so cute brought back memories of the Little Rascals.
