Eleven-year-old Annie has been living in an orphanage her whole life run by cruel Miss Hannigan. After unsuccessful escape attempts, Grace Farrell comes to take the child home to live two weeks with billionaire Oliver Warbucks during Christmas. The plucky orphan worms her way into the hearts of the staff and Mr. Warbucks and even the president of the United States! Even though Mr. Warbucks wants to adopt her, she is still looking for her real parents who left a locket with her when they dropped her off at the orphanage. Miss Hannigan's brother and his sleazy girlfriend pose as Annie's parents to gather the reward that Warbucks has offered to Annie's real parents. Written by <ragheadchick@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Among the changes from prior versions to this version are:
  • Four songs, including the original title song, "Annie", which was not in the Broadway score, but was written for the prior movie version;
  • A subplot involving Sandy's going missing in the original musical;
  • The White House "Tomorrow" reprise, which was replaced by a scene involving Grace Farrell and Annie; and
The ending is subtly changed, in that Miss Hannigan, not Lily St. Regis, pretends to be Mrs. Mudge. See more »

A remake of the original movie of 'Annie', more largely based on the broadway version
3 June 2002 | by spaccygirlSee all my reviews

This movie was extremely awful! Annie was my all time favourite musical when I was a kid. Aileen Quinn and Albert Finney really brought the musical to life. Most of the people who complained about the original version complained largely because it strayed from the original broadway plot. They didn't take into account the incredible chemistry between characters in the original. This movie felt dull and lacking of chemistry and vital energy in comparison. The one number that I enjoyed was 'Easy Street' in this version. The rest were dull. Annie in this movie seemed to have less spunk. Aileen Quinn really did a remarkable job when she played Annie. She really brought the character to life. This Annie didn't seem half as tough or convincing. Rent the original if you want to enjoy a musical brought to life for film without the political correctness and mass chease fest!
