This film, quoted as a "sequel" to the original musical, takes place in 1943. The original took place surrounding Christmas of 1933, as the date was a major plot-point in the story. Annie was 11-years-old then. Therefore, she should be 21-years-old (a decade later). See more »
This version is a sad and disappointing return of Annie the orphan-no-more. Silly plot and sub-plots, combined with an under-par acting by most of the actors, and woeful characterization makes this Annie film a real let-down. The antics that Annie get into are downright silly at times, and comic timing is absent at times. The bad guys in this case are so inept that they might as well turn themselves in instead of trying to escape. At least the crooks in the original Annie had much more brains and intellect than most common criminals.
Wait till it comes to free-to-air unless you are really an Annie-fan.
