Annie the movie: "You're only in foster care because no one wants you"

Has anyone seen it? I loved the original as a kid.

The new movie at cinemas now is ok but they've moved it from an orphanage to foster care.

As well as the quote in my title, Miss Hannigan (the evil foster carer) shouts "The ONLY reason I look after you is because the state pays me $150 a week" and later tries to encourage someone else to become a foster carer on the grounds that they pay you loads of money.

The Hard Knock Life song (which is sung a lot) has been changed to "No one cares for you a bit,When you're a foster kid".

Miss Hannigan tells Annie that she doesn't want to look after her any more because she's been naughty so she's rung the state to take her away and taunts Annie about not knowing where she'll be sent next.

All in all, I'd suggest caution about seeing this movie with adopted or fostered kids.
