Storyline

In the depths of the 1930's, Annie is a fiery young orphan girl who must live in a miserable orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Hannigan. Her seemingly hopeless situation changes dramatically when she is selected to spend a short time at the residence of the wealthy munitions industrialist, Oliver Warbucks. Quickly, she charms the hearts of the household staff and even the seemingly cold-hearted Warbucks cannot help but learn to love this wonderful girl. He decides to help Annie find her long lost parents by offering a reward if they would come to him and prove their identity. However, Miss Hannigan, her evil brother, Rooster, and a female accomplice, plan to impersonate those people to get the reward for themselves which put Annie in great danger.

"Why any kid would want to be an orphan is beyond me..."
26 March 2010 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Depression-era youngster, a red-headed, freckle-faced tot who rules the roost at a New York orphanage for girls, is the lucky child picked to spend a week in the mansion of billionaire Oliver Warbucks; tippling Miss Hannigan, the child-hating headmistress of the orphanage, schemes to get even. Based on the long-running, Tony-winning Broadway musical, inspired by the popular comic strip "Little Orphan Annie", this rambunctious family film is a bit too self-conscious to be much fun: everyone has one eye on the camera, all the while singing and gesturing to the back rows. Newcomer Aileen Quinn is overly-inspired in the lead; she has a sincere little face, but nothing Quinn does--not even running down the street to get away from a policeman--feels natural. Her reactions (like those of her dog, Sandy) seem prompted from somebody just out of camera range. Quinn is hardly an orphaned girl of the Depression...she's more like an orphaned kid from a TV sitcom (you almost expect her to pop up in a poker game). Several of the grown-ups fare much better than the poorly-cast children, with Carol Burnett single-handedly making the picture tolerable as the boozy, man-hungry Hannigan. Otherwise, the choreography is messy, the script unsurprising and unfunny, and John Huston's direction is sadly lethargic. ** from ****
