I admit it. I was wrong about the new film, Annie. At first, I was upset when it came out. I thought to myself why ruin a good thing? I vowed that I would not see it. I kept that vow until I noticed that it was running on Stars cable network. Reluctantly, I took a shot. I also always believed that Little Orphan Annie should have red curly hair as the prototyped Annie. However, they put a spin on things and added new songs. They took the story and added a modern day spin that didn't hinder the movie from being good. I only wish they would've titled it different. To keep the original Annie sacred, I feel that they should have titled it: Annette: A new spin on Annie. Otherwise, I felt it was a very good flick. Cameron Diaz portrayed a good Miss. Hannigan. I liked that they changed the name from Daddy Warbucks to Mr. Stacks. I appreciated the character Annie to be spunky as the original movie portrayed Annie to be. I was a true fan of the movie. I remember going to see it and was mesmerized by the plot and music the first time. Again, I felt mesmerized by this modern tale. I can be quite a sap and by the very end of the movie, I was in tears. They may have been happy tears, but they were tears. So, I give the new Annie a thumbs up and would definitely watch it again.
