‘Let’s go to the movies’

Annie is a movie based on the comic strip ‘Little Orphan Annie’ about a little orphan with the curly red hair called Annie (Aileen Quinn) who is taken in by a billionaire Daddy ‘Oliver’ Warbucks (Albert Finney) to escape from the evil and alcoholic Miss Hannigan (Carol Burnett) in the time of the Great Depression.

The movie, along with its musical numbers are cringey and cheesy, but it is a musical and a classic, so why can’t it be? There is also a ‘remake’ of it starring Jamie Foxx, which  I have no intention to go and watch whatsoever. This is also one of the movies that I distinctly remember having on a VHS and I confess to secretly liking It’s a hard knock life. 

Fun classic with good musical numbers including Tommorow and Let’s go to the movies.
