Storyline

Annie Oakley is an incredible shot who was raised 'Doin' What Comes Naturally'. Frank Butler, the star sharpshooter in 'Colonel Buffalo Bill''s show, however, knows full well that's not how 'The Girl That I Marry' must be. Anyway, not at least until he finds that 'My Defences are Down'. Though Annie defiantly says 'Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better', she realizes that 'You Can't Get a Man With a Gun'. The victor at the end is love; as you know, 'It's Wonderful'. After all, 'There's No Business Like Show Business'. Written by Horacio Abeledo <horabe@ipcabe.uba.ar>

I thought this was a great movie!
3 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was full of adventure and romance in a weird way. I love how its a musical. I am auditioning next week for the play Annie Get Your Gun at my school, and seeing the movie really has helped me prepare.Usually the same person gets all the lead parts, but not this time! I'm really confident that I'll do okay, especially because Annie is such an awesome character. I think this is definitely a movie for all! I love how everyone gets a good feeling from listening to people sing. This movie is definitely one of my favorites. Did you know Annie Get Your Gun is a true story? It is! That's another reason why it's great- real life, but not boring!
