Annie is 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. But everything's about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks - advised by his brilliant VP, Grace and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy - 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

The film was originally envisioned by Will Smith in 2011 as a star vehicle for his daughter Willow Smith with Jay Z playing Will Stacks. However, the film lingered in development, and by the time production was ready in 2013, Willow had aged too much to play Annie. Quvenzhané Wallis, just off her tremendous success with Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012), was chosen to replace Willow for Annie while Jamie Foxx was chosen to replace Jay Z as Will Stacks.

When Guy shows the clip of Will saving Annie on the screen he says that someone recorded it and put it on the internet. However, the video was shown from the front angle of the van when it was approaching then followed by from the side of the van when Will pulled Annie out, exactly the same edit the audience saw in the movie. If it were recorded on the phone by the bystander it would only feature one angle. See more »
I don't know why some people don't like this movie! I don't think this movie is cheesy at all. I absolutely loved it! I love the modern take on it. I love the actors and actresses and all of the songs. I have watched it several times now. I love how Quvenzhané Wallis gives off the "okay, I don't care" act when things rise up against her character (Annie) in the movie. But as she walks away, you can see her true emotion of hurt or sadness show through. I think that shows what a good actress she is growing up to be. I love the modern take on the original songs as well as the new songs added. I think this is a very well made movie. I wish it had better reviews than it has been getting.
