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 the unforgettable songs, including "It's A Hard Knock Life" and "Tomorrow."

Critics Consensus: John Huston proves an odd choice to direct, miring Annie in a sluggish, stagebound mess of an adaptation, but the kids are cute and the songs are memorable.

Tale of cute orphan is great for the whole family.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Annie is the 1982 version of the popular radio show, comic strip, and Broadway musical. Overall it's a charming and entertaining movie for the whole family. But for families sensitive to scenes of drunken behavior, it's important to note that Miss Hannigan (played by Carol Burnett), the caretaker of the run-down orphanage where Annie lives, is often (comically) intoxicated, slurring her speech and clutching bottles of liquor. There are also occasional references to sex ("make hay," "tumble in the bundle"). Cartoonish violence pops up from time to time: A "Bolshevik" throws a lit bomb into Daddy Warbucks' office, and Annie hangs from a bridge after getting chased by the bad guys. And there's some uncomfortable stereotyping in the form of the Punjab character. Still, what emerges overall are the unforgettable songs and the plucky determination of Annie as she goes from rags to riches.
