A foster kid, who lives with her mean foster mom, sees her life change when business tycoon and New York City mayoral candidate Will Stacks makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in.
In "It's the Hard Knock Life", the line, "No-one cares for you a smidge when you're in an orphanage" was changed to "no one cares for you a bit when you're a foster kid".
Why are you running?
Annie: It gets me to places quicker.
When Annie puts first puts the change down on the counter at the government office, there are only three coins, which total 55 cents - two quarters and a nickel. In the next shot, there are now six coins totaling 85 cents, two quarters, three dimes, and a nickel. The coins then become 55 cents when seen in the next shot. Finally, when the clerk takes the bills, the coins disappear completely.
The first part of the credits feature the finale number as well as a number of outtakes.
