Critic Reviews for The Little Rascals
Spheeris appears caught between her desire to make a film for little children and amuse their parents, resulting in a mess that will do anything for a cheap laugh.
A travesty; not worthy of the original shorts.

Audience Reviews for The Little Rascals
The Little Rascals is one of those films that you really enjoy as a kid, but that unfortunately, doesn't stand the test of time. I remember loving this film growing up, and it was fun back then. However now in my adulthood, I'm recalling all the childhood favorites that are still relevant today, and unfortunately, The Little Rascals doesn't live up to that reputation. The film suffers the same curse as other old, amusing family films that were fun when growing up, such as The Flintstones and Hook. They were all fun when I was young, but now, they feel quite pathetic, and inane. Watching this film, you say to yourself, why was this even funny? The jokes are stupid, the acting is awful, and really the film hasn't stood the test of time like so many other childhood classics. I think it's too bad because the film was a lot of fun to watch while growing up. But like I said, the film didn't stand the test of time, and doesn't deserve to be along the classics such as The Sandlot, Toy Story, Casper and E.T. This film is awful. Viewing it now, you realize how stupid it really is, and how pointless the film is. This is one of the few films that I liked when I was younger, that really hasn't aged well for me. The film is pretty stupid nowadays. The Little Rascals is one of those childhood films that you can easily forget about because the film isn't memorable or a classic. My favorite childhood film is The Sandlot, and that film is still a lot of fun today. Some childhood favorites remain relevant and others don't, and The Little Rascals is one of them. A stupid, low humor filled film that you'll be disappointed if you watch again in your adult years.More
I absolutely love this movie! It is so very much like the old Hal Roach short films form the 30s, in both the jokes and the characters, if you liked the old movies, you'll love this one. It also has a bunch of cameos from great actors to look for. This movie is hilarious and nostalgic, I love it and I highly recommend it.More
