Weak Third Film
Out West with the Peppers (1940)

** (out of 4)

Pretty weak third entry in the Columbia series has Mrs. Pepper (Dorothy Peterson) suffering from poor health so she and her five kids move out West to stay with a relative. The kid's uncle is a bitter and mean old man who doesn't want any of them there but will the kids be able to work on him? OUT WEST WITH THE PEPPERS is pretty much another version of the first film, although the only difference here is that this takes place in the West. This here is a pretty disappointing entry on a number of levels but the biggest is the fact that the kids here are just so downright annoying and constantly doing bad things that I agreed with the uncle in that they should leave the house at once. I'm sure the stuff the kids do was meant to be funny but they just come across as a bunch of trouble makers without anyone to keep them in order. I've always questioned some of the mother's parental skills in the first two movies but just overlooked it. Here I have to wonder why on Earth she let the kids do so much and not ever put her foot down. There's annoying sequence inside a grocery store where the kids wreck it. There's another sequence where they bring a skunk into the house. So many things that they do were either annoying or something these kids should have known better about. Sure, perhaps I'm being too serious but the first two films aimed for charm and got it. This one here aims for charm but fails so the stuff comes off annoying. The performances aren't all that memorable and there's really not any funny scenes.
