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 makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in.
Comedy Drama Musical - This isn't so much an adaptation of
the classic Broadway musical than a
new, modern film inspired by it and
using a number of its songs--and as
such, kids with no familiarity with
the original are the main target.
Fans of the main stars will enjoy
PROFANITY: A few miscellaneous profanities. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Some hits. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Fairly frequent alcohol. ACTION: A big chase. COMEDY: Cute kid and animal humor; some mildly suggestive lines.

Based on a theater exit polling of 95 moviegoers:
CHILDREN: FANTASTIC REVIEWS from the kids!
TEENS: GREAT REVIEWS from all the females.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: GREAT REVIEWS from all the females.
ADULTS: Close to 80% of the ladies LOVED ANNIE! All but a very small fraction of the remaining reviews rated it as "average," which for this type of movie isn't bad coming from adults. Half of the six males loved it with one more rating it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. The remaining two rated it "average," which isn't bad since this is mainly targeted at kids.
