      What to know

      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. Read critic reviews

        Delightful, family-friendly film with fun songs and story. Sure, the characters are all caricatures and the film lacks direction and substance, but that's part of the charm. A nice bit of nostalgia made even sweeter by the 2014 re-make disaster.

        i found this movie to be really annoying and is trying so hard to be a shirley temple movie, how far it failed on that is uncalled for. its simply too clumsy, lazy, and just simply annoying for me to handle! the musical numbers are decent, i'll admit, but no pazzaze. i especially dislike annie, shes simply annoying and i really find her as a shirley temple hog. its simply a movie that i would watch, just once, thats all.

        "Annie" is the epitome of a family film in every way. From it's very catchy musical numbers to it's strong heart shown by it's talented cast, this film will make your heart sing even if you are in a bad mood. This film has some obvious faults, as it does not need to be two hours long and some plot devices seem to be thrown in to push the story along, but all-in-all, I had a blast watching it. For the type of film that it is, it's dialogue and lyrics are all well-written and it is very well-produced. "Annie" is the type of kid that you wish you could have been friends with growing up, due to her sheer likability. "Annie" is one of the most enjoyable musicals I have seen. For anyone ho has not seen it, it definitely earns a recommendation from me.
