The Little Rascals (1994)

EW's GRADE
C

Details With: Bug Hall and Travis Tedford

Spanky and his gang GoKart into the '90s, accompanied by Donald Trump, peers with cellular phones, and expressions like ''boy toy'' in this movie that's slicker than Alfalfa's cowlick. The kids are undeniably cute, but their aura of innocence seems forced. The Little Rascals is funniest when the mini-men bond in the infamous He-Man Womun Hater's Club. Director Penelope Spheeris (Wayne's World) remembers that girls buy movie tickets too, and goes feminist in the end. Instead of turning out PC, it's more like PU. C
