plus its not about sexism.the plot of the story is that mary is in debt,and has no one she can ask for help with her financial situation.thats the whole point of the story.she is so poor she has to consider marrying barnaby.we are all blessed this movie existed and is even released on dvd now.i consider mary a honorary disney princess after snow white and cinderella.just look at the dances and costumes instead.its a treat of a movie.
OMG  What an angel!  She makes my heart melt into my shoes.  BTW  It's not about her character not being able to do math; it's about her character being broke.

+Katy TerBerg You make a pretty good point about the wealth, but you're right it is Babes in Toyland, a pretty silly/crazy movie.

This isn't really about being dumb. It's about being desperate. I've been in the exact same place and had the same thoughts. You can't make one and two add up to four no matter how much you'd like to.
none of your business

I use to love this movie as a kid, but this song....just "wow" at the sexism. And it's done in such an inconspicuous way!

I never thought this was sexist as a kid and I don't think so now. She's singing about being broke.... And let's be honest.. math is hard. LOL. I'm so annoyed at people who can only be political. What a sad life to live.
+Erin Marie Are you kidding me? There are PLENTY of movies with boys having trouble doing math and saying they hate it!!! Not to mention the dozens of kids shows with boys constantly failing their grades (Fairly Odd Parents, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, etc)

I'm just a silly girl! How can I ever figure out addition??
Might as well just make poor life choices. Better than having to do math!

I love this movie and sing along with all of the songs. I wish they brought this stuff back to Disney now instead of all these teeny bopper stuff with short clothes and not so funny jokes. I love and miss the costumes and colors and concept of what real Disney was like fir me growing up. Thanks Annette for your great mouseketear work and I hope you are living the good times in heaven.
Me in adulthood life be like
