Leaping Lizards!

Annie is probably one of my favorite musical films. I really enjoyed the original version from 1982, and if I can remember correctly, the 1999 remake was not terrible either.

This is such an uplifting movie, it is a great one to watch if you are ever feeling down. I absolutely love the message of it about how things may suck right now, but there is always tomorrow and eventually things will brighten up. This message is spelled out perfectly in the famous song "Tomorrow" sung by little Annie.  I also love how orphan Annie finds the positive in all the negatives. She is thankful for the little she has rather than sad about what she lacks. If only we could all be a little more like Annie, I'm sure we'd be happier in general.


  1. I love the story of Annie, but to be honest, I prefer the stage version to the movie. Not sure why, but some musicals are better left on stage. I don't hate the movie versions, but there's just something about seeing Annie live that I prefer.

    1. I completely agree the stage version of Annie is much better. I felt the same way when i saw Mama Mia, when it was on stage i fell in love with it but the movie i couldn't get behind.

  2. I've never seen Annie on stage... but I love the movie! My cousins were always involved in theater so I grew up tagging along to all of their shows. Because I was exposed to musicals so early, I think I've learned to love and appreciate them. Annie is always a fun, uplifting movie to see.
