| Apart from seeing a young Shirley, not a lot of reason to look for this one.
Apart from a chance to see Shirley Temple when she was very young, there isn't a lot to recommend this one. It's not terrible...but it also isn't very good.

The film stars Frank Coglan Jr. as Sonny--a rather annoying teenager whose classmates treat him pretty lousy. After having some girl trouble at school, he announces he no longer likes girls. Basically, this is a long and silly teenage rant...not much fun to watch. His mother later asks him to watch his bratty sister (Temple) and she is a handful. However, her time in the film is relatively brief and the plot then jumps to the new girl who just moved in next door...and Sonny suddenly forgetting his pledge. Soon, he's asked her out to some dance and little does he know that he will be in for some more bullying when he gets there. Ultimately, he's had enough and is ready to teach the head bully a lesson.

If you like watching teenagers act like teenagers, by all means watch this one. As a parent whose kids are now in their 20s, I have little desire to watch immature kids...which basically this all boils down to in this story. Not terrible but the characters are often annoying as well as broadly written.
