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.

I still love it!
5 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

I just recently watched this movie, for the first time in my adult life. It's even better as an adult, because you catch all of these little things like, "Mr. Warbucks, you're really handsome, for a Republican." Some people bash it for being different than the Broadway show, but so what, they did a good job. It's a fun movie for people of all ages. It's hilarious, musical, and touching.
