Visible crew/equipment: While Annie, Miss Hannigan, and the inspector are in the bathroom, just as Annie says, "Bye, Mr Inspector," right above Miss Hannigan's hand we can see in the mirror's reflection that something dips into view, presumably the boom mic.

Factual error: When they are chasing Annie's fake parents into Liberty State park, the park is not located near the George Washington Bridge, as shown immediately before they entered the park, and NYPD would not give chase into the park, since Liberty State Park is located in New Jersey.

Continuity mistake: When Annie starts to sing 'I think I'm gonna like it', she jumps on some water stones. In one shot she jumps on the second stone, but when the angle changes, she lands on the first one.

Revealing mistake: While Miss Hannigan is singing "Little Girls", she sees one of her foster girls as a lamp on a table. As the camera and scene continue down the hall, a foot can be seen in the background as the girl jumps off the table to be replaced with a real lamp.

Other mistake: Will's rating increased by 5% because he saved Annie from being run over. A guy happened to be filming it happening and uploaded it online, but the uploaded footage is shot from two different angles.

Continuity mistake: When Miss Hannigan is in the kitchen mixing things in the blender the blender is full of liquid. The amount of liquid changes to about half full.

Continuity mistake: When Stacks spits the mashed potatoes on the homeless' face he has bits all over. In the side shots his face is clean. This changes back and forth.

Continuity mistake: When Hannigan throws the Annie shirt at Lou he picks it up in one hand and moves it to the other hand which he lifts up in the next shot but when he does it is either in the original hand and out of frame or else completely disappeared.

Hannigan: There have been worse politicians than him.
Guy: I know. And I got them elected.

More quotes from Annie

Answer: In earlier versions of the "Annie" story, she is orphaned when her parents are killed in a car accident. In the musical, they died in a fire. In the 2014 re-imagining, Annie lives in foster care after being abandoned by her family. Early on, she hopes to one day be reunited with them. We, the audience, never learn their whereabouts, nor whether they are alive or dead.
