      Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine It's the twenty minutes in which the quints themselves are before the camera that make the picture worth seeing. And never mind the story. Jul 22, 2019 Full Review John Beifuss Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN) 'They sing! They dance! They act!' promised the poster for the film; in fact, 'the quints' go 0 for 3 in these talents, although the four-year-olds do struggle through a few verses of 'Frere Jacques.'
