It’s a Hard Knock life for this foster kid and her dog. This modernized version is a bit different from the original, but Annie still has those curls. In this movie, Annie lives with her mean natured foster mom, but her life is about to change when a local Mayoral candidate and successful business tycoon takes her in. It may seem like life is looking up, but this attempt is only a move to try to win votes. This family guide to kid’s movies thinks this new twist on an old classic will be sure to please.

This modern version takes place in 2014. Annie is a tough kid who can make her own way on the streets of New York. She was originally left by her parents as a baby, but they promised to come back for her someday. Stacks is the mayoral candidate who thinks that he is her guardian angel when he takes her in, but she may be exactly what he needs.

This movie only contains a minor amount of rude humor and strong language in a few places throughout the movie. This modernized version has been updated for the tastes of modern audiences. There is some mild sexual innuendo and there is one character who wears a revealing outfit and flirts with most of the male characters whom she encounters. She is mistaken for a prostitute by one of the characters. There are some frightening and violent scenes. For instance, Annie is almost hit by a truck. A woman punches a man and Annie also talks about a girl who punched a boy in the face. There is an intense chase scene in the end. Annie mentions one foster sister who has a crush on a boy. There are a few instances of profanity.

This movie makes an emotional shift from comedic and funny in the beginning, to emotional and dramatic in the end. This movie is probably appropriate for children who are 8 and above. All of the favorite songs are still there for everyone to love, only with a modern twist. This movie just as endearing as the original, only Annie now posts on Twitter. So if you’re stuck with a day thatäó»s grey and lonely, go see this move and it will pick you up for sure.
