Comedic Genius

Last night I accidentally watched the movie Annie in it's entirety. I hadn't seen it since I was a little girl and I was still bewitched by it. I got the chills when she arrived at Daddy Warbuck's house and all the maids danced around and she looked all wide eyed and cute. I mean, that was one adorable little redhead.

I think that the part that I enjoyed the most was Carol Burnett as Mrs. Hannigan. She was so funny in this role. I love the scene where she's loaded and singing about how much she hates little girls. There were so many nuances in the scene that I didn't pick up on as a child. She's flippin' hilarious. Don't take my word for it, check it out.
I think that she's the funniest after the 2 minute mark.




See what I mean? Genius.

I can't believe that I spent my Friday evening watching Annie
and now I'm spending my Saturday evening Blogging about it.

I really need to get out more.

Funny stuff! Annie is a classic, that's for sure. Isn't it funny watching stuff as adults that we loved when we were little, they become completely different movies. I was thinking about this the other day with Shrek, I was wondering at what age do the kids start getting the adult jokes.

OMG! I LOVED that movie. Please don't laugh, but I actually have some of the songs downloaded on my mp3 player. Sad, huh? And, of course, now that I've re-watched that clip you posted, I will be singing "Little Girls" ALL DAY!!!! Thanks for that!

I used to listen to the LP of Annie over and over and sing along to all of Miss Hannigan's songs in very dramatic fashion, stumbling along and pretending to be drunk. Memories!
