About The Little Rascals Save the Day
In the spirit of the treasured Our Gang comedies, The Little Rascals Save the Day finds the most entertaining bunch of third graders in town hatching a series of madcap schemes to earn enough money to keep Grandma’s (Doris Roberts of “Everybody Loves Raymond”) bakery out of the clutches of conniving businessman Big Ray (Greg Germann of Here Comes the Boom). From caddying to pet care to taxi service, each of their plans goes hilariously awry until they are left with just two options: find a way to win the local talent show or wave goodbye to the best cupcakes a kid ever tasted!
Eden Wood of the hit reality series “Toddlers and Tiaras” makes her feature film debut as pint-sized coquette, Darla, along with the fresh young faces of Camden Gray, Chase Vacnin, Connor Berry, Drew Justice, Grant Palmer II, YouTube sensation Isaiah “Zay-Zay” Fredericks, Jet Jurgensmeyer, Jenna Ortega and Rio Mangini in the iconic Rascals family-friendly original comedy. Adult actors Valerie Azlynn (“Sullivan and Son”) and Lex Medlin (“Drop Dead Diva”) complete the cast.
Join the fun with Spanky, Alfalfa, Darla, Buckwheat, Petey the dog and the whole gang as they are up to their usual mischief! The Rascals try anything to raise the money needed to save their grandma’s (Doris Roberts) bakery. The only trouble is – they just can’t seem to do anything right! From botched pet washes to terrible taxi service, they can’t raise a penny. Their only hope is to win prize money from the local talent show – but have you ever heard Alfalfa sing?

The Little Rascals Save the Day –Two Thumbs Up!
If you love the Little Rascals (and who can resist all the cuteness) you are going to enjoy The Little Rascals Save the Day ! Grab the kids and sit down to watch this family movie as you are amused by American’s favorite pint-sized mischief makers! I know this film received some mixed reviews, but I actually liked it and give it two thumbs up! There were many entertaining moments within the movie that had us all laughing! However, as much as it appealed to my six year old son, I could not get my teen to agree to watch 1 hour and 38 minutes of the “rabble-rousers” causing silly community havoc. Getting an almost 17 year old to take interest in zany third graders is like trying to get a cat to want to take a bath! It’s almost impossible! Yet, if she just would have given the movie a try, she probably would have enjoyed it.
I am not going to ruin the movie for those who haven’t seen it by revealing any spoilers, so you will have to watch the film to see what happens. With that being said, I cannot resist sharing one of my favorite scenes from the The Little Rascals Save the Day, because it is too cute not to mention. Stymie, Spanky, and Alfalfa and the gang try to help Grandma out by making their own version of red velvet cake. They mix in a whole bottle of vanilla, two bags of flour, tons of sugar, eggs (including shells), McKible Motor Oil, a more than generous amount of yeast, and the main ingredient…100% real red velvet. As you probably already guessed, the cake turns into a humongous exploding monster mess! Very typical of what you would imagine from the over helpful little walking disasters!
The Little Rascals Save the Day is directed by Alex Zamm who has directed numerous family films including Tooth Fairy 2, Dr. Dolittle: Million Dollar Mutts, Snow, Inspector Gadget 2, and Chihuahua 2, which is the “highest-grossing live-action direct-to-DVD of all time, grossing over $63 million.” Pick up a copy this Tuesday on Blu-ray Combo Pack and relive the fun of the incidents and events of The Little Rascals series!
