Sweet Movie
26 March 2003 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Once again, Shirley Temple steals the show, and warms the heart with her curls and dimples. This is a great movie for the kids and the whole family, along with all of Temple's other family features. Guest star Buddy Ebsen puts on an entertaining show in the beginning of the movie with little Shirley Temple. 7 out of 10.
