Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This "Good Ship Lollipop" is sweet, but sad, too."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"The ne plus ultra of Templedom."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
" tolerance for Shirley Temple's brand of sugary lightheartedness is rather limited.... But it would be churlish of me to deny the little moppet's winning charisma."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"One of Shirley Temple's best musicals, laced with sentiment and song."
‑ Steve Crum,
"you can see here why Shirley became the idol of a nation"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Shirley really shines."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
"It's a tough slog, even at 85 minutes."
‑ Ian Waldron-Mantgani, Apollo Guide
