About the Movie
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Annie's hit debut on Broadway, we present the classic movie version of the beloved musical, now digitally remastered and featuring the original theatrical trailer. "Annie" is the story of a plucky, red-haired girl who dreams of life outside her dreary orphanage. One day, Annie (Aileen Quinn) is chosen to stay for one week with the famous billionaire "Daddy" Warbucks (Albert Finney). One week turns into many and the only person standing in the way of Annie's fun is Miss Hannigan, the gin-soaked ruler of the orphanage (played to hilarious perfection by Carol Burnett). Will Miss Hannigan's zany attempts to kidnap the irrepressible Annie succeed? Enjoy all theunforgettable songs, including "It's A Hard Knock Life" and "Tomorrow."

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: They don't build movies like this anymore.
Rotten: Many people said John Huston was an odd choice to direct Annie and he proves them right.
Fresh: What makes "Annie" so winning is that, while it could have easily been just another cutesy-poo Hollywood musical, it happens to be as gritty, genial and boisterous as little Annie herself.
Rotten: The movie offers an insulting 'let them eat cake' gesture toward the 1982 audience, but the pacing is so ragged and the characters so lifeless that few will be able to stay awake long enough to feel offended.
i loved Aileen Quinn as this spunky rebel girl aka Annie! she has amazing talent! LONG LIVE THE ORIGINAL "ANNIE" MOVIE!
There are several Annie movies, but this one is the best. It has joy, happiness, fear and sadness.The music is great, the actors and actresses are wonderful. Carol Burnett is very gifted.
