Storyline

Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who's also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they'd be back for her someday, it's been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything's about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) - advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale) - makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he's her guardian angel, but Annie's self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it's the other way around. Written by Sony Pictures Entertainment

Trivia

Sandra Bullock was originally considered to play Miss Hannigan, but she declined the role, citing once how she "hates musicals and vows to never star in one." Cameron Diaz then signed on to replace Bullock. See more »

Goofs

In the opening title sequence, Annie is seen boarding the 1 train at 125th St. She then departs a 6 train at Grand Central and then exits at Franklin Street back on the 1 train. She then goes to a restaurant on 12th St. Annie would not have to had to get off the 1 train at all nor would she have gone to Grand Central crosstown at all. Franklin Street is also too far south on the 1 train for 12th Street in Greenwich Village. See more »

Quotes

Will Stacks: See, you gotta play the cards that you've been dealt. No matter how bad the cards are.
Annie: What if you don't have *any* cards.
Will Stacks: Then you bluff.

Great movie
2 January 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I thought it was a great movie. I grew up watching the old Annie and I loved this one just as much. The original Annie made you feel happy for Annie and Mr Warbuck but this Annie made you feel good about yourself and your family. I thought the new songs were catchy and enjoyable. The only bad thing I can see was that Cameron Diaz's acting was a bit over exaggerated but besides that, it was great. I had no problem at all with the actors being black, in fact, I didn't even think about it until I came on here and read the disgusting comments. All the people that grew up with the old Annie and are hating on this one need to stop because this is an updated version on the story that was made for the next generation. Just think of the poor little girls in the movie reading your disgusting comments.
