Dull, inept, lame short with Robert Blake as one of the boys...
4 May 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Boys who play hooky and go fishing are going to be sorry when they "don't catch all the big fish" later on in life. So they're told by a wise old fisherman when they take time off to go down to the local pier to fish.

BOBBY BLAKE is so young, he's barely recognizable as the boy who turned into ROBERT BLAKE as an adult. "Buckwheat" is supposed to provide some laughs and a boy with a foghorn voice is barely understandable. It's supposed to be hilariously funny, but misses the mark in a big way.

At least the Hal Roach comedies had talented little actors doing their thing. Blake doesn't do badly, but all the other players are enough to make you cringe.
