I have loved Singin' in the Rain since I was a young mcstabbypants, and I finally got the chance to show my kids the film (well, the two older ones). I was afraid that at 6 and almost 4 they'd just be too young for it, but they LOVED it. My son (the almost 4 year old) was dancing around to all of the songs. My daughter wanted an umbrella after watching the iconic scene. They laughed at the jokes. They thought Lina Lamont (the ever brilliant Jean Hagan) was hilarious with her crazy voice. They thought Donald O'Connor was a scream. My heart is so full.

It still amazes me that Gene Kelly did this dance while totally sick with a 101+ degree fever.
