Nice family 4H Club type film--See it you will like it.
27 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Tomboy and the Champ was a very nice movie with nice characters in a small Texas ranching town area. It is a good movie for youth interested in 4-H club work. The child actors showed talent and were pleasurable to watch. If you like ranch and farm animals and rural life you will like this movie. It is very well done. I would have liked more of Norman Sherry's character Stockton to have been in the finished movie. If a DVD is to be made maybe adding more scenes of him could be done; assuming the original film still exits and could be added when making a DVD. Norman Sherry was a very good stage actor that I would like to have seen more of in this film.
