Tim T. (FireflyDaddy) from IRON CITY, TN

There are movies out there that good some even make great but few and I do mean very few make it to land mark or classic. This is a classic musical. Not the play it's great even a landmark in and of it's own right but These stars cast and crew make this movie classic. If you haven't seen it your missing something. If you have and it's been a wile pick nit up watch it again year and years from now I think this will still be around. It is like Sound of Music, The King and I and Mary Poppins. There are others out there but you don't need to say what one because this IS Annie. You want the others you'll have to name them but this one is a one of a kind classic and no one even comes close to this.

That said maybe you don't know the play so I'll give you a run down. Annie, left on the steps as a baby, has grown up with little help from the state. She is around 10 I think. Daddy Warbucks grew up on his own and made it rich so rich the president calls him and he refuses to take the calls. His secretary trying to improve his image offers to take an orphan for a week. Annie gets the job. He wants to make her his but she wants her parents. So Big Daddy puts his money out there to find them. What happens well think you should watch and see. Why spoil it?

Leapin' lizards!
M. Stoltenberg | Phoenix, AZ USA | 01/06/2005

"Well, I think this is a really swell movie. Albert Finney and Carol Burnett crack me up, Aileen Quinn is exactly what Annie should be, and Sandy is perfect.

But WHY OH WHY is this not being offered in a widescreen format? I have yet to see all of "It's a Hard Knock Life" and I know those girls are knocking themselves out offscreen. I've seen this movie on three different media. All were pan and scan, and all three showed different parts of the picture! The worst was a VHS release. (...)

I don't know which is more frustrating about this anniversary dvd, the fact that it doesn't offer widescreen, or the fact that the dvd menu and the special features show the movie clips in widescreen, teasing me with those brief glimpses.

There is no reason that dvd manufacturers shouldn't at least OFFER a widescreen version. Let's get with the 21st century already!"
Best version because of the great cast
Kelli | Somewhere out west | 09/27/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You cannot beat the cast in this movie. It has some of the greats, like Carol Burnett, Bernadette Peters and Tim Curry. That is part of the reason why the Disney version could never compare to this one. Also, Aileen Quinn makes such a great Annie. She really looks spunky. She can look really sweet, but also tomboyish. She can look threatening, like all the times she raises her fists. The girl in the Disney "Annie" looks too sweet. She isn't as convincing when she tries to fight. If you want to watch Annie, this is the version to get."
Still No Widescreen!
G. Hamson | Marlton, NJ USA | 07/02/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I can't help but wonder if ALL the widescreen prints of this movie were destroyed in a warehouse fire. Why would you bother to master another "Special Anniversary Edition" with a new DTS soundtrack and not include a Wide screen version? Especially with more and more widescreen TVs on the market. It is going to look pretty silly in a few years showing this pan and scanned musical on your widescreen TV. While not my favorite movie musical, I would still buy it if they ever have the sense to release it in it's original format! Until then...forget it!"
