I won't, Mother, just my clothes!
Those children... and that includes you.
What have I done?
Ever since you heard of those Vanderpool pups, our dinner table's been a regular battlefield.
And it's going to stop. I'm not going to tolerate any more of Sonny's nonsense. Wait till you see Queenie, and you'll know why I'm so crazy to have - I mean, for Sonny to have one of her pups.

This is kind of sweet and cute. Die hard Temple fans need to see it certainly. Got a few minutes and want a chuckle? This'll do. The qualities that latter made Shirley Temple the little cinematic doll that she was are all evident here. There is a certain amount of fun and games slap stick, and there is that one sight gag that you see coming but don't mind that the punch was telegraphed. The various players all do well for the type of film it is. The sets are natural, and the continuity is what it was for that era of movie making. All in all this is both watchable and enjoyable family style fun. This is what you watch with the three year old between rounds of Old Maid.
