A worthy sequel to the '80's classic!
This and Straight Outta Compton are the best movie musicals in years! The cast is utterly charming, especially Cameron Diaz who gives a star-making performance.
Have to vote no on this. Though an attempt was made at Annie this version just seems to forget the true characters and their importance to the main character and her life. Comparing the original to this one is like oranges and apples and unfortunately this could have been an entirely different movie renamed as something else because aside from the name Annie and the fact her parents left her somewhere there is nothing else here that creates a freshness yet keeps the basis for the Annie original. So many ways this could have been done much better.
So disappointed in this movie. The entire approach to it was flawed from the rich entrepreneur's egotistical behavior to the portrayal of the female assistant as a friendless individual who over compensates through her work but has no life. A far cry from the original Annie or the original characters story line. Very sad attempt at remaking a classic.
This new version ruined Annie. What happened to Daddy Warbucks??? This rich man role in the new version is an embarrassment to the original Daddy Warbucks in many ways but most of all because Warbucks was a very busy man with no time to really have children or a personal life. This version displays a very rude man who is portrayed as thinking he is above everyone else on a pedestal and is only motivated by his personal pursuits. Very sad take on the Annie many have known and loved from the past.
The movie was horrible. It completely lost focus of the original story for Annie. The original Annie had a threat to her life posed by criminals as well as her bond with her pet and more. This new version is nothing more than a diva wanna be show and lacks anything new or pleasing. The essence is gone. Zero star for me and a waste of time and money.
I bought two copies (one to watch and one to keep as a collector's item). Love it!
Fantastic fun! It's a remake with its heart in all the right places!
I am sooo getting this on blu-ray!
BEST MOVIE EVER! I have never seen such a great movie in my entire life! The singers, the little Annie, the concept, the action and the aspect! WOW! WOW!
