This was not the first attempt to do a sequel to the musical "Annie". An attempt was made on stage in 1990 with "Annie II: Miss Hannigan's Revenge", which was a critical and commercial disaster. It was substantially reworked into the 1993 show "Annie Warbucks", which, while not as big a failure, was not a substantial hit either. See more »
Christ. A sequel to one of the most cloying films of all time, this at least has the decency to leave out the songs (bar a reprise of the unbearable "Tomorrow") but unfortunately continues the tradition of being nauseating and unfunny. This time, Annie and her friends head off to London and get caught up in Joan Collins's plot to blow up Buckingham Palace or some such nonsense.
The movie has a bizarrely sycophantic attitude towards its eponymous character at odds with how irritating she is: every time she squeals "Leapin' lizards!" I could feel my teeth grinding themselves into powder. Drearily photographed, slushy and plodding, the only things the movie has to recommend it are one memorable line "Unhand me, you stupid genius!" and the fact that it's not the original.
