    Synopsis
    Basically...
       Alfalfa, a member of the He-Man Woman Haters Club, finds that he really likes girls and takes his girlfriend Darla for a picnic at the clubhouse. The other members of the club are furious and work to ruin the picnic. The picnic ends up burning down the clubhouse. As punishment for his crime, Alfalfa is sentenced to forget about Darla and any other girls forever. He also has to guard the club's soap-box derby car, the Blur. Darla is mad at Alfalfa because he was ashamed to tell the club how he felt, so she dumps him and begins seeing rich-kid Waldo. Alfalfa leaves the racecar alone temporarily, and it is stolen by bullies Butch and Woim. On top of building a new clubhouse, the club also has to make a new racecar. Alfalfa makes several attempts to get Darla back, including attending her ballet recital and sending her a note through Porky and Buckwheat. The club succeeds in building the Blur 2, and Alfalfa and Spanky are chosen to drive it in the race. After some confusion, Alfalfa and Spanky win the race. This is partly because of some help from the driver in Waldo's racecar. Spanky extends an invitation to the driver of Waldo's racecar to join the club, but when the driver removes their helmet, it turns out to be Darla! Spanky and the rest of the club decide that girls aren't so bad, and their club is now open to girls.

       Mary-Kate and Ashley had very small parts in this movie. No details of their characters' personalities were given. They were guests at Darla's sleepover. The characters said all of their lines in unison.
