      John Leonard New York Magazine/Vulture The best that can be said is that, minus commercials, it's only an hour and a half. Feb 5, 2018 Full Review Michael Scheinfeld Common Sense Media A tuneful, joyous musical for the family. Rated: 4/5 Jan 2, 2011 Full Review James Sanford Kalamazoo Gazette It's tough to ruin tunes like 'You're Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile,' 'I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here' and 'It's A Hard-Knock Life.' Under Marshall's direction, they become the showstoppers they should be. Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Read all reviews

      Scott A Although, all the film versions of the Broadway Musical Annie have merit, the one with the most heart is the 1999 ABC/Disney movie with Alicia Morton and directed by Rob Marshall (also choreographer). With all the real Broadway actors engaged and power actors like Victor Garber, Kathy Bates and Audra McDonald, in my opinion it is the only one that works at all levels. Of course, Alan Cumming and Kristin Chenoweth are like icing on the cake. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/15/23 Full Review Lilly V you know...the sun will eventually come out Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/08/23 Full Review Meredith C I love Annie, I saw the original on Broadway as a small child. This is my favorite movie version. The acting is actually pretty impressive, the song performances are all great and it is pretty authentic to the broadway musical. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/19/22 Full Review will b honestly there's nothing really wrong with it except for one problem. Annie. She's a fucking bitch who sings about how her parents are coming back. There's a reason you're an orphan. They left you because you're a whiny, ginger, dumb, Mariah Carey sounding, bitch. i hope you never get adopted. fuck you. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/09/24 Full Review Audience Member Bad Annie movie by Disney. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Despite a great cast, this remake is lesser than the original. It is thankfully without the racial stereotypes of the original and is also much shorter, but it is lacking a lot of the charm and drama of the original. I also don't like any of the new songs. Audra MacDonald has one of those most amazing voices, but is not supported in the script. This Annie has a great voice, but lacks the spunk and charm. Kathy Bates is a fun choice as Ms Hannigan and she's very funny, but can't keep up with the Broadway musical stars in the musical numbers - it's also completely unrealistic they don't recognise her as Mrs. Mudge. Alan Cummings is perfect in every sleaze bag role. Kristin Chenowith is completely wasted. So despite some great talents this remake of Annie just doesn't come together and feels like the cheap made for TV remake it is. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
