The Little Rascals (1994): I have watched this movie so many times. It is one of my all time favorite movies. We own it and whenever I am bored, I always get this out, because it makes me laugh and brings back memories of watching it as a little girl. I quote this movie from time to time, and if I mention it around a friend and they say they have never heard of it, I make them watch it ASAP.
