Cute but Not Funny
Small Talk (1929)

** (out of 4)

The first "Our Gang" talkie has Weezer getting adopted by a wealthy family but they leave his sister behind. The group then decides to pay Weezer a visit and chaos follows. I must admit that I didn't care too much for this short due in large part to the technical side of things but I also found the screenplay to be quite tiresome. The biggest problem is that there really aren't too many laughs as the entire movie just seems to be setting itself up for the rather stupid ending. That wouldn't be a bad thing had there been more laughs but there are very few and the only one that comes to mind is when the five runaway children think they're going to be hung for it. Being an early talkie is another problem as none of the cast members, adult or kids, know how to work their performance for sound.
