| A rare misfire.
Generally, the Our Gang comedies are very watchable today--especially those from the early 1930s. However, "Free Wheeling" manages to be a rare misfire--and is pretty bad in parts. Too bad--and the film started off well enough. It seems that Dickie's mother is VERY over-protective. She's convinced he needs to be in a neck brace and has been for some time. However, the doctor insists that the boy is fine and he just needs to go out and have some fun. However, he makes the mistake of trying out Stymie's new cab service. The cab is an old wreck of a car pushed by a mule. But, when the mule gets loose, the cab goes careening out of control--and the children could be killed.

While the idea doesn't sound bad, the film became bad once the cab supposedly broke loose. Such a stun was VERY difficult to film realistically back in 1932. Now I am NOT suggesting that the studio should have really pushed the kids down the hill!! But, it looks so incredibly fake even by the standards of the day. As a result, there is no excitement at all. Even part of you knows the kids are fine because it's so unreal. As a result, the film is all downhill from there...so to speak.
