Creepy and annoying....
14 December 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Kid in Hollywood" is very much like a pageant that parents of very young school kids are invariably forced to attend. The folks need to tell their little angels that they loved the show and their performance as a tree or sheep, but the truth is that these shows are god-awful and irritating. "Kid in Hollywood" is very much like one of these pageants! However, in addition to seeing lots of untalented kids (and at this point, even little Shirley Temple showed little of the genius she'd show in films), the plot is VERY unsavory...and high on the creepy scale. That's because like a few other early Temple films, she plays an adult-like character--complete with a sequined outfit and singing a torch song!! It comes off as some sort of pedophile's dream film! By the way, if you do watch, you may have severe difficulty understanding the kids talk--and the film I saw was not captioned.
