User Reviews

A unique retelling of THE LITTLE RASCALS.
20 November 1998 | by emmSee all my reviews

Never in my life have I heard of FATTY FINN, which was based on a comic strip feature. Maybe because I wasn't around when its popularity existed. This is another rare find for the entire family, despite this one coming from Australia. The nifty costumes, props, and characters are magnificent, and the acting is decent. But I must clarify something to all loving parents before trying to find this one for their little ones. There are a couple of scenes of nudity within the first 30 minutes, including one where bullies do a paint job on Fatty's behind for a couple of seconds. It may be offending to those who have children, so please view along with them! Other than the sudden inconvenience, the rest of FATTY FINN has the usual delightful moments as with other "family" movies, with added classic flavor to make it interesting. Sort of like 1930 all over again, only more colorful. It comes up a bit short on humor when compared to THE LITTLE RASCALS / OUR GANG, but it has lots of mischievous comedy to keep you fully enjoyed. And there's plenty of it! I feel this one is too overrated for my tastes, but after all, the young and old alike will appreciate it.
