Storyline

The story begins with Spanky, who is the president of the "He-Man Woman Haters Club" with many school-aged boys from around the neighborhood as members.

Alfalfa isn't like his friends because he's in love with Darla, and unfortunately threatens the very existence of their "boys only" club. The club's members try their hardest to break the two apart, eventually causing their beloved clubhouse to burn down. Darla is mistakenly led to believe Alfalfa feels ashamed of her, so she turns her attentions to Waldo, the new rich kid whose father is an oil tycoon.

*****:perfect 5 stars,these kids truly do the darndest things
25 April 1999 | by PJS-5See all my reviews

This is a true masterpiece of crazy-comic children films because, well for one thing, this is no disappointment to those who enjoyed the original Little Rascals series. A highly cute, funny, adorable film to anyone. True, the idea of a "He-Man woman haters club" is offensive to all you feminists out there, but remember the story of the film took place when these kind of things commonly happen. So what I have to say is this is an excellent-quality film for any little rascals, & besides the rascals in the film are kinda like "Rugrats" but they're in the proper age group of kingergarten, so if you love seeing cute kid hijinx by all means, see this film.
