Calling all members of the He-Man Lady Haters Club!
It’s been 26 years because director Penelope Spheeris gathered the cutest group of kid stars the ’90 s has actually ever seen for The Little Rascals, her big-screen adjustment of the traditional Our Gang brief movies from the 1920 s, ’30 s and ’40 s, fixated the adventures of a group of rowdy community kids. And in doing so, she presented a whole brand-new generation to Spanky McFarland, his lovesick friend Alfalfa Switzer, the object of his love, Darla, and all the rest.
While critics didn’t exactly love the movie when it was released on August 5, 1994, leaving it with simply a 23 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes based upon 13 evaluates, it was a preferred for a generation of young spectators who most likely still sing to themselves “I have actually got a pickle, I’ve got a pickle, I have actually got a pickle, hi hello hi” whenever they see one of the green veggies.
In the 26 years because the film debuted, its child stars have, naturally, grown up, with a number of them stepping out of the spotlight. What much better way, we thought, to celebrate the motion picture’s huge anniversary than by searching for what each of the young stars is up to now. And luckily, the folks at Los Angeles-based production business 22 Vision helped us out by collecting much of the cast for a reunion photo shoot. Think us when we inform you, these rascals aren’t so little anymore.
