Storyline Heading
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.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
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 the film.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Annie isn't likely to capture the attention of audiences when there are brighter, shinier objects to dazzle.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good ... but if you see it with a big audience you'll experience an emotion entirely different from the one being described in many reviews: unabashed cheer.

USA Today Full Review
Average But the rest of Annie is banal, shallow and markedly cynical.

NY Post Full Review
Very Poor The worst Hollywood musical so far this century, it's another misstep for Sony Pictures, which also sponsored the abortive 'The Interview.'

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

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.
