There is a disclaimer at the beginning of Little Often Annie in which writer/director Leon Gucci states that he "abhors and discourages any form of child abuse." So this film shows the sexual exploitation of an innocent child-like character who has lost her pet and is willing to do anything to find it.
Desiree Lane plays "Annie" and it is obvious that she is no child. But her acting is excellent, and she is able to portray a pouting, gullible youth who is mislead into the sack by people wanting to help her find her "lost pussy." The innocence she feigns during the opening love scenes quickly turns to lust in the later, multi-person scenes (all of which are very hot). But after sex, Lane goes right back to the whimpering "child" looking for her cat.
As the title would suggest, this film is a parody of the Little Orphan Annie comic strip. But there are too many inconsistencies to maintain a strong recognition with the cartoon. The only real strong comic imagery is in the character of Daddy Long Legs (Nick Niter). And of course, Daddy – as well as the butler, maid, cook and gardener – does things to Annie that would never be printed in a childrens' comic.
This film works because everyone can relate to being young, losing something, and the ensuing traumatic search. There's hot sex, good acting and an imaginative music score.
