A foster kid, who lives with her mean foster mom, sees her life change when business tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in.
I liked the story line and the way this movie was shot, but I liked the songs better in the original. The casting was good, though, to be honest Jamie Foxx wasn’t the best singer. I was also a little annoyed with the way they handled Hannigan.
At the end Hannigan has a change in heart and tells Stacks, Jamie Foxx, what she’s done and that the people taking Annie away aren’t her parents. I liked it better when Hannigan was a villain and didn’t change her character because Annie was so adorable. After how many years of being a horrible foster mother, this situation finally changes who you are? I don’t think so.
The movie was okay, but because of that I’m lowering it half a star.
