Fun Our Gang
Boys Will Be Joys (1925)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Pleasant entry in Hal Roach's Our Gang series sees the kids getting kicked off some property where they have been playing since school let out. They decide to go visit the man who owns the property and it turns out that he's a big kid himself so he puts an amusement park up on the property so that the kids can have fun. BOYS WILL BE JOYS isn't the greatest film in the series but it's mildly entertaining thanks in large part to the amusement park that is built up in the second half of the picture. I think there was quite a bit of imagination in this section as the rides are built in a rather interesting way and I really loved the look of some of the rides including one where a car is used without its wheels. Another funny bit involved Farina and his wild animals, which includes what he thinks is a dog but it turns out to be a skunk. The movie has a fairly good story and the director at least keeps the film moving at a pretty good pace. The first part of the movie has a couple good moments including the property owner stopping to play a quick game of baseball.
