EXCELLENT MOVIE WITH EXCELLENT CAST!!!!!!!!!
16 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie was spectacular and well done. It was done for all audiences and that makes it better so the younger audiences can view it. The movie all out was great but what made it much better is the spectacular casting of Shirly Temple, Ashley Rose Orr! Rose had the glamour and sparkle Shirly once had. Her tap numbers with Bo Jangles were extraordinary! I loved the way the actress made herself cry!!! That was amazing because of how hard that is to do! All and all they couldn't have casted a better Shirly and I HOPE to see more of Ashley Rose Orr in future films!
