An Exciting and Extremely Entertaining Portrayal ! !
18 May 2001 | by (Florida, U.S.) – See all my reviews

The beautifully charming Ashley Rose Orr has exploded on the screens of millions of Americans with a gift of song and dance the world hasn't seen since the real Shirley Temple. The Movie showed a child that took control of her life and was not injured by the business, Bravo Disney !

The songs were so clear and well re-created. The dance numbers were more exciting then in the original B/W movies. Very authentic in costuming and sets. The Supporting cast worked well with the child star herself. My only disappointment is that it wasn't a 4 hour 2 part movie. I hope Disney will run with this "NEW" CHILD STAR ! ! ! !
