I don’t know about you but growing up, The Little Rascals was one of my all time favorite movies. And guess what? Buckwheat, Alfalfa, Darla, Spanky, Petey and the rest of the gang are all back in the new movie The Little Rascals Save The Day! This time around Grandma’s bakery is on the verge of being foreclosed if she doesn’t come up with $10,000 to pay back the loan she owes. Well, of course the Little Rascals can’t let their grandma and favorite bakery owner go out of business, specially with their enemy Waldo Kaye and his father Mr Kaye trying to buy up the bakery and turn into a mall complex.
The Little Rascals get very creative with coming up with ways to raise $5,000 after Grandma is able to pay off half of the loan. They do everything from getting jobs to starting their own pet washing salon. Their last hope is the win the local talent competition, but can they all get along long enough to win it? Furthermore, will they have enough time to practice so that they sound great by the night of the talent show or will Grandma’s bakery end up a mall complex and the Little Rascals treehouse a swanky playhouse for Waldo?
What we loved about this movie is that it’s family friendly and suitable for children of all ages. There were quite a few funny moments in this film. Our favorite is the scene they attempt to make a red velvet cake. I don’t want to spoil it, but you’ll have see how the cake comes together and whether or not it makes it to its intended customer.
Grandma is played by Doris Roberts, who does an excellent job. I also loved that there were several messages in this movie. The most important message was probably that: Being a leader of group doesn’t necessarily mean that you get to make decisions for the whole group. Spanky has to learn this lesson, but will he learn it in time before he loses his friends and their last chance at saving Grandma’s bakery?
I definitely recommend that you get this movie and watch with your kids. It’s available here for DVD/Blu-ray purchase and for digital download. You can also use the Rafflcopter widget to enter for a chance to win a copy! Giveaway ends April 22nd at 11:59 PM.
