Features game performances by all, especially by comedy queen Carol Burnett and Tim Curry, as the dim-witted villain and his moll, Bernadette Peters.
Only lags with the rah-rah pap of Edward Hermaan as FDR and Hasidic Jew terrorist sub-plot. Chop out those 10-15 min (except for the 'Tomorrow' sequence!) and you have an epic musical!
'It's A Hardknock Life'; 'Little Girls'; 'We Got Annie'; 'Easy Street'; and, 'Tomorrow' among the knockout musical sequences.
Enjoy! (And skip the disaster 'Annie' remake of 2014!)
The theme of this movie is hope. Hope that no matter what you'll find a way out. Hope that no matter what, you'll find that place where you belong. Hope that if you just keep going soon you'll be rewarded. That may sound like a childish view of the world, but come on it's from a child's view of life. And when you think about it, it's only impossible because we as a culture of adults say, "no the world is terrible." Maybe if we all looked at things a little more simple, then the world wouldn't have to be so ruff after all.
