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.

Likable Musical
28 June 2006 | by movieratings03See all my reviews

ANNIE (1982) **** Likable basis of the Broadway musical about a little orphaned girl, Annie, who falls into the care of a well-to-do billionaire. The rich man had intended to boost his political image through this situation, but he ultimately wants to keep the little girl in light of his newfound daughter-like love for her. Aileen Quinn is fine as the titled character, turning in rags for riches, all the while hoping to someday reunite with her real parents who had abandoned her for orphan care. Though the movie goes on for too long, the charm and likability of this musical production more than makes up for it. Of the lead players, Albert Finney, Carol Burnett, and Ann Reinking are particularly nice to watch.
