Storyline

The kids in the tenements have no place to play except in streets where traffic is a hazard. Mickey gets the idea of building barricades to give our gang space to play at an intersection, but a beat cop, the nasty "Hard-Boiled" McManus, puts a quick end to that. A sympathetic constable and a detective who has kids of his own give our gang a chance to help law enforcement. The little rascals wear uniforms and keep an eye on things: Joe, for instance, eyes the bananas at Tony's fruit stand. When the now-fired McManus returns and seeks revenge, the junior police force and their adult colleagues are put to the test. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Decent Our Gang
28 January 2011 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Official Officers (1925)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Decent Our Gang short has the kids playing baseball in the streets and narrowly being hit by passing cars. A new officer replaces a mean one and he tries to connect with the kids by making them junior cops. This isn't a masterpiece or a film with many great laughs but it's decent enough if you want to waste twenty-minutes. I think the majority of the jokes don't work nearly as good as you'd hope and this includes about a five-minute sequence where Joe decides to take advantage of him being a cop by eating free bananas from a local vendor. He ends up eating dozens of them and afterwards must try and come up with new ways to get more bananas from the owner. Another joke as Sammy arresting Farina but he keeps slipping through the jail gates. The first portion of the film contains some pretty good laughs as the "mean cop" is a rather interesting character and got a few laughs with his abuse of the vendor. The highlight of the film has to be the quick scene where James Finlayson gets a ball upside his head. That's not the funny bit but the real laugh comes from seeing him with a full head of hair.
