Abandoned by her biological parents as a baby, Annie (Wallis) spends every moment of every day attempting to avoid the wrath of her cruel foster mother Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). Thing start to look up for Annie, however, when she has a very public encounter with Will Stacks (Foxx), a local cell-phone mogul with mayoral ambitions. Stacks campaign isn't going too well until he meets Annie and invites her into his home at the suggestion of his trusted top assistant Grace (Rose Byrne) and his ambitious PR advisor Guy (Bobby Cannavale).

Don't bother the real one is $5 at Walmart.....
18 December 2014 | by yoshiredSee all my reviews

some things do not need to be remade ever.... this movie was garbage..... the original is way better as usual.....just don't waste your money on the "updated and downgraded" version.... if your kid wants to see it again the original is available at Walmart for $5..... just because things can be remade does not give you the right or need to do so. on top of being disappointing the least a studio could do is: get decent music. Actors with actual talent. make it true to the original not butchering a classic.... there's just no sense to doing this movie besides trying to get little princess babies to beg mommy and daddy to see it... an again if thats the idea...

GO BUY THE DVD OF THE ORIGINAL!
