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, advised by his brilliant VP, Grace and Guy, makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in.

Wow. Wonderful remake of the Annie movie. Sia's new music compositions for this movie are lovely to listen to. I normally don't buy sound tracks to movies but I'll look for this one. Actress Quvenzhane is a very talented new Annie.

Recommend for the library "Notable" DVD shelf as a family friendly option.

I hated this movie, I have seen and loved both the 80's and 90's versions of Annie. They changed the story and the songs, not good. Sure the kids cute but I had high expectations and this movie didn't fullfill them at all. I dont get why anyone liked this movie. Maybe you could kinda like it if you hadn't seen the original but still. 0 to 1 stars.

Awesome!
I enjoyed this movie when I saw it in the theater, thought Jamie Foxx was superb in his role, and even liked Cameron Diaz, whose acting I've never particularly cared for [would never consider her remotely in the class of a Marisa Tomei or Julia Stiles, for instance]. Never understood the original Annie and Daddy Warbucks, for crissakes!

I think the movie was great and musical! However, some parts were too modern for what Annie actually is. Four stars because it's good- but Annie is a classical musical. Never forget.

It's a good movie, not a great one. While those who wanted just a update to more current times may or may not be disappointed, it's still worth a watch.

I liked most of the new music and yes, some songs aren't always recognizable as the original, but for the most part, I think it kept in spirit of the original.

Some of the acting isn't as good as could be expected, but it deserves 3 stars. Wasn't Jaime Foxx's best role, but his voice was great. Cameron Diaz was too cliché. Enough said.

If you want a movie you can watch with music lovers of all ages, watch this movie.

Annie 2014 is a great modern and fun twist to the original. It has catching new and old songs. Giving us a little bit of both new and old. Watch this fabulous movie.

OMGudness!! I did NOT expect to like this version as much as I do - It's so Awesome!! The music & voices (Qhevezhane Wallis & Jamie Foxx) were so great...I could actually let my 7 year old son watch this as the Original is a tad too severe (tragic) for his age in my opinion. I cried it was so good! Well Done!

Other: There is a scene in the movie where they are in the bar.

Impossible_Wolf Apr 06, 2015

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Slightly intense scene towards the end, however not as bad as the 1982 film.

Impossible_Wolf Apr 06, 2015

Coarse Language: "D*mn" and "H*ll" are each used once or twice, barely noticeable. "A**" is also said once.

Coarse Language: they say the d word a couple times and the h word. but its barley noticeable.
