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.

Kids movie about important things
6 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

I have read a previous comment that says that the only good singing parts are when Carol Burnett sings, and I think that's baloney. The purity of a child's voice still cuts you to the soul (if you have one) and I can still remember the goose-bumps I got from miss Quinn's singing the first time I saw it in the theatre. Carol Burnett is great in this film, and she deserves much praise, but above and beyond that - if you want a movie that you and your kids can watch that won't leave them screaming obscenities (or being just plain rude) at daycare on monday, then this is a good film for you to SIT DOWN WITH THEM and watch.
