Annie: REVIEW

Having lots of money and gadgets and stuff is what we should all look for to be happy!
Right?… Right? Oh well, that’s what Annie seems to think at least.

1982’s Annie is considered a musical classic, so it was only a matter of time before it got the Hollywood reboot treatment. But this Annie is a predictable mess of lazily re-created songs and hokey moments that only grows more insufferable as it goes on. If you want to see talented actors like Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhane Wallis shoehorned into awkwardly forced sing-along moments, then Annie has everything you might want.

Despite its well-intentioned charm, Annie plays out as a sluggish, lazy, clichéd and oddly materialistic re-imagining of the popular musical classic. Its heart is in the right place, but not even all of Wallis’ joyful personality can save this Annie.
