Storyline

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.

Goofs

When Annie drops off "DOH form number 43807-8" to the clerk at the government office, she also puts down $43.55 in change and bills. When she first puts it down, the bills are rolled up inside a small yellow elastic band parallel to the counter's edge, with the change away from Annie and towards the clerk. In the next shot the bills are vertical, the band is now a neon yellow shoelace, and the change is along the side of the rolled up bills. The clerk then removes the tie from around the bills (which is now again the original plastic band), and drops the money on the counter. She starts to drag the bills off the counter with a pencil, and in the reverse shot, as she drags the bills all the way off, all the change has disappeared. See more »

Loved it!
26 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Not sure why so many feel the need to bash this version of the movie just because they think they're the top 'original' Annie movie fan of all time. Who cares if they made a new version...it's not even close to being the same as the original. I absolutely loved the original Annie, and I can say that I love this one just as much. It's SO much fun, and all of the actors/actresses are wonderful at acting and singing. I feel that the changes that were made were done so to reflect the times we live in...certain sayings from the original wouldn't be related to as easily. Nothing wrong with liking both...they're just movies, so I don't think you'll hurt the original Annie's feelings if you decide to like this one just as much or more!!
