Storyline

Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who's also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they'd be back for her someday, it's been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything's about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) - advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale) - makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he's her guardian angel, but Annie's self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it's the other way around.

Real Critics Don't Rate with 1's
27 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

It is a shame many have to offset a movie ratings with exaggerated numbers to attempt to get a reasonable rating outcome for some movies.

I still don't get why IMDb allow 1 or 2 ratings out of a perfect 10.

There are some very poor so called movies in the world, however, we have to get off of the dumb 1 ratings because a movie has personal issues with some movie opinions.

OK, a 1 out of 5 would make sense for someone who totally hate everything about a movie.

Yeah, I get it.. different faces and a breach away from the original Annie musical, OK, then we take away points for originality.. Well how about individual character acting, OK, then we slam points off for poor acting.. What about the feel and plot of the movie? Was it entertaining, maybe funny, interesting?

I'm making the point that Annie falls far short of originality, however, entertaining and acting was not sub-par worthy of a senseless 1 out of ten..

I have seen too many movie ratings ruined by people personal 1 out of ten ratings which should be more of a 4 or 5 out of 10. And I also know the reverse of some people like myself who may rate a movie 10 just to offset those ridiculous 1 out of 10 ratings.

Anyhow, the movie was good for an updated version of Annie, great entertainment for the family. It definitely deserves better ratings than a 3 or lower.

I recommend this movie for great family entertainment and a twist of the original Annie.
