Why was "Annie" (1982) so awful?

It might be the worst film adaptation of a pretty good Broadway musical ever. I understand that John Huston hated the song "Tomorrow" and would only allow it sung over the credits. But why did he and the producers take so many of the show's other good songs (like "NYC" and the title song) out and replace them with such shit like "We Got Annie" and "Let's Go to the Movies" and "Dumb Dog"? Why did they film the Warbucks mansion in what looked to be a giant mausoleum? Why were the choreographed numbers so chaotic and filmed with so many zillions of children? In case you've forgotten the horror, here's "We Got Annie."
