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.

The 1982 version is much better.
‘ANNIE’: Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)
Modern-day adaptation of the 1977 Broadway musical (of the same name), which was based on the 1924 comic strip ‘Little Orphan Annie’. It stars Quvenzhane Wallis (of ‘BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD’ fame), as Annie, and Jamie Foxx, as billionaire Will Stacks (an update on the Daddy Warbucks character, from the comic and musical). It costars Rose Byrne, Cameron Diaz, Bobby Cannavale, David Zayas and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. It was directed by Will Gluck (who also directed ‘EASY A’ and ‘FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS’) and written by Gluck and Aline Brosh McKenna. I don’t think it’s nearly as enjoyable as the 1982 film version (which I grew up on) but the music is still good (and there’s three new songs).
The story, once again, centers on a ten-year-old orphan named Annie (Wallis). She lives at the home of a mean alcoholic, named Colleen Hannigan (Diaz), with four other foster children. Colleen is very abusive to the kids, constantly making them clean her apartment, and only takes care of them so she can collect money from the state. Annie dreams of being reunited with her parents, who promised they’d come back for her (long ago). She runs into New York City mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Foxx), while running home one day, and falls to the ground in the streets. Stacks saves her from being hit, by a truck, and the incident is caught on video. The video then goes viral and Stacks sees it as an excellent opportunity to save his failing campaign. An odd relationship develops between the two.
The film is filled with corny jokes, and bad acting, and it’s even more cheesy than the 1982 movie (which I still love, for nostalgic reasons). The music is great, still though (especially my favorite: ‘It’s the Hard Knock Life’), and the movie does have a positive and upbeat message for kids (like it’s source material). It’s other saving grace is Quvenzhane Wallis, who has some really powerful scenes (towards the end of the film). She could have delivered another award worthy performance, if her part had been written a little better (she is nominated for a Golden Globe though, but doesn’t quite deserve it). For those reasons the movie isn’t horrible but the 1982 version is much better.

I thought this film was so rubbish and of course it’s not going to be like the original Annie I understand that but it was so boring I couldn’t wait to leave the cinema. There wasn’t much of a proper story line to the film. It just looked like a budget, quick skim through of the original. The songs were song after one another but there was no real story line in between. I seriously wouldn’t recommend wasting your money to watch this film it’s not worth it. I love the film Annie and this one was a shambles. Maybe little children might enjoy it but it just dragged on. The acting was quite poor as well. It all looked very staged.
