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. His best friend, Alfalfa, has been chosen as the driver for the club's prize-winning go-kart, called "The Blur", in the annual Soap Box Derby style race. However, when the announcement is made, Alfalfa is nowhere to be found. The boys catch Alfalfa in the company of Darla -- "a girl!" 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. Further trouble ensures when their prized go-cart "The Blur" is stolen by local neighborhood bullies Butch and Woim. How can they win the big race and ...

Alternate Versions

Original theatrical prints and subsequent broadcastings on ABC and Freeform are longer by several minutes, with the following additional material:
  • Porky and Buckwheat both figure out through Petey that the note is for an emergency meeting.
  • Additional dialogue in the He-Man Woman ('womun') Haters Club.
  • Additional dialogue between Alfalfa and Darla on the boat.
  • Right before the clubhouse fire, Stymie remarks "What's that smell?" (this better explains why Alfalfa looks in the clubhouse).
  • During the clubhouse fire, a fire truck shows up which the rascals think is for them, but it drives past and turns down another street.
  • Additional dialogue during the court scene.
  • The gag with the two bearded men at the bank is taken further. Mr. Welling thinks it's another trick and grabs their beards, angering them and losing their business of investing $2 million dollars.
  • When Buckwheat is searching for the note for Darla, she also adds: "Is this going to take all day?"
  • After Butch says "This will be like stealing candy from a baby", Woim also says, "Last time we stole candy, we ended up with the chicken pox."
  • Alfalfa tells Petey that love got him "conviction, probation, a frog in his leotard, and a butt naked chase".
  • When Alfalfa asks to be in the talent show, Ms. Crabtree says that they're all booked up. Alfalfa then lies and says his aunt would die if she didn't hear him sing.
  • Darla confronts Alfalfa after he sings at the talent show and Alfalfa replies that he heard her compliment him, inadvertently revealing that it was him at the ballet recital. Waldo then tells Alfalfa that he's entered in the race.
  • During the building of 'The New Blur' montage, two of the club members steal the wheels off of a baby carriage.

Horrible imitation of a classic series!
18 January 2000 | by Troy-24See all my reviews

Horrible! I grew up watching the classic original "Our Gang" comedies, which were genuinely funny and the kids were real and likeable. This movie missed the boat completely. Most of the kids in this new movie are nauseating. The dialogue is corny and not funny. Rent some of the originals instead -- they show much more originality, humor, talent and most of all, heart.
