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

The original lyrics for Tomorrow:" The way we live now, It's different, than the way we lived our lives before. I'm not sure!". The song was originally called The Way We Live Now, and it was used for a 1970 short called Replay, which compared the flower power hippy movement of the 1960s and 1970s with the flapper movement of the 20s. (The short can be seen on YouTube). Charles Strousse then re-used the melody and re-dubbed it "Tomorrow" when he and Martin Chernin were developing the Broadway show Annie. See more »

Goofs

When Rooster and Lily enter as Annie's parents, Lily sits on the front of Miss Hannigan's desk. When the shot switches to Miss Hannigan's face you can see the edge of the desk, but Lily is gone. When the shot switches back to behind the desk, Lily is there again. See more »

Poor copy of the original thing.
7 November 1999 | by christin-16See all my reviews

Per usual, Disney takes a perfectly good story and botches it. What happened to Punjab. Ms. Hannagan should have been more to her true character, which just happens to be a man wanting alcoholic. Of course Disney had to keep it clean to stamp it's name upon it. I feel cheated after watching this poor excuse of film.
