About the Movie
Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Best Actress, Beasts of the Southern Wild, 2012) stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York. But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A teeter-totter between O.K. and Meh.
Rotten: By the end, the movie resembles just another formulaic, family-friendly piece of product, one the kids will enjoy and you'll endure as it goes in the DVD player for the 40th time.
Rotten: Leapin' lizards! The evergreen Broadway musical "Annie'' strays far from its Depression-era roots with truly dismaying results in this crass, charmless, tineared and lead-footed update.
Rotten: Even Sandy the dog looks like he's had enough.
If you're gonna remake a classic, have some respect...
Now let me start by saying, I love the original “Annie” musical… Yet, with this remake, every bit of charm has been pulverized out of it. This version is an awkward (at best) effort to drag it into the modern social-media age… Even if I put aside the grating performances by the actors, the awkward direction, visually unpleasant and the haphazard development of story, make this movie 100% unbearable.
The point is, if you’re a fan of the original, don't waste your time. This toxic mess will soon be forgotten… most likely tomorrow, when the sun comes out.
Please leave the classics alone. Stop trying to re-make older movies, come up with new ideas, if you can.
Another money grab by a movie studio.
Why buy this one when the originals better.
But this is politically correct because there's an African American girl playing Annie.
What a marshmallow society we've become.
