No amount of self-referential jokes can make up for a lack of heart and spirit. Thankfully, Annie lacks neither.

The film replaces choreography with metronomic editing, while one-note overstatement drowns out character development.

Some don't need it, but most of us do. And "Annie," makes me believe. To the nay sayers, I simply ask if there was a time you believed, because I believe in you....

Not Worth It

I am looking forward to this version.
