  • Putting aside the grating performances, the clumsy direction, the visual ugliness and the haphazard development of story, character and relationships, the movie is hobbled by its intrinsic unsuitability for contemporary retelling. show more

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

  • Even with all this sparkle, the film staggers through its third act. By then, the script has rubbed the rough edges off the villains and made whatever point it was going to make several times over. show more

    No offense but now I wont go see this movie simply because u changed the character. Its supposed to be a red haired white girl. Its like getting a blonde white girl to play the part for mulan whos clearly asian. Common sense people. This movie was a classic and you ruined yet another good movie. I understand youre trying to give black people more roles but get the right person for the role. Stop acting so stupid over races already. Theres different races everywhere now that you share a country with. It doesnt matter whos what anymore. Get over it already.
