Funny, warm, great family fun
25 July 2001 | by (NS, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on Family Channel a few years ago and LOVED it! Anyone who likes Shirley temple, or just classic movies in general will love this sweet movie. I'm still waiting for Family Channel to run it again. The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer is another movie sort of like this one, with the same kind of happiness and fun.
