Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Annie is an updated version of the classic stage and movie musical. Set in modern-day New York and starring Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild), Annie features familiar songs (updated by Jay-Z and Sia) and Annie's typically hard-knock life with vile foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz), who drinks too much and terrorizes the girls in her care. Younger kids may find her hostile parenting style very unsettling (she yells in a drunken rage and sprays the girls with Windex). There are a few tense scenes where Annie is in danger (she's also rescued from being hit by a car by Daddy Warbucks stand-in Will Stacks, played by Jamie Foxx), a bit of language ("hell," "damn," "sucks," etc.), and a little flirting and kissing. Illiteracy is also an issue for one of the main characters and is aggressively tackled once it's discovered. Some kids might find it upsetting that Annie was abandoned at a restaurant as a young child, but the movie talks about foster families and social class in an interesting way. It may not live up to the classic for some die-hard fans, but it's an entertaining family film with good music.

Sexual Content

Violence

Miss Hannigan threatens to hit the girls with a broom and sprays them with Windex. They visibly fear her. Annie almost gets run over by a truck. During a car chase scene at the end, Annie is in danger.

Language

A couple of "hell"s and "damn"s, and one "ass." Miss Hannigan calls the girls monsters and tells them to shut up. Also "sucks" and "idiot."

Social Behavior

If you're smart and you work hard, anything can happen. Loyalty and friendship are valued. Money and material objects don't buy happiness.

Consumerism

Product placement includes Purell, Febreeze, Skype, 5HourEnergy, and Windex. Twitter and Instagram are mentioned. Many off-screen product/merchadising tie-ins.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Miss Hannigan drinks frequently and appears drunk most of the time. She worries that Child Protective Services will find her pills.
