The first time I saw this I thought it was "OK," but I watched it with her again recently and was getting goosebumps all the way through. It does have a few scenes which I think could have been left on the cutting room floor (like "Moonquake..." weird), but the key scenes are done REALLY well. It captures the heart of the original story and brings it into modern times, more accessible to today's kids. I really liked the switch to black co-stars, and my white daughter expressed how she loves Annie's hair (which, impressively, was kept natural all the way through)--I love that this is one more way for her to internally normalize diversity, as we live in a 95% white state.
The music is FANTASTIC. If you have doubts about watching this or scoff at what some consider an unnecessary remake, listening to samples from the soundtrack might change your mind. I LOVE all of the new versions of the songs! (And of course so does my daughter.) And there are some great new songs, particularly "The City's Yours" and "Who Am I?" (goosebumps all the way through that one!) The soundtrack is a solid 5 stars.
The script is appropriate for the target audience. For example, it hints that Ms. Hannigan drinks too much, but she is always shown with a Big Gulp cup in her hand. Read into it what you will but my kiddo only saw a big slushy cup and a silly woman. That's a huge step up from the obviously drunken, vodka bottle slinging drunkard in the original movie. Also, Annie is not an orphan now; she's a foster kid in NYC. That's more modern and realistic. It is also a lot less scary for the little kids watching. Of course her parents aren't dead -- they are just not in the movie right now! Annie is the eternal optimist (of course) and the foster kids all love each other (so sweet), but she has some obstacles to overcome as do the adults and so the plot moves along at a reasonable and understandable pace.
Overall this was a nice movie I didn't mind watching this with my child a few times. Hint: get the chapter book made from the movie to read [with your kid] first THEN let him/her watch it. That's an even bigger reward and it will encourage your child to read.
