What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Hard knock life for Foxx, Diaz.
James Berardinelli Most remakes are unnecessary but Annie is a bigger offender than many.
Peter Travers It's a hard-knock life for anyone who has to suffer through this ill-advised update on the Broadway classic.
T. Durgin So a mixed bag, but not one worth paying theater admission money to see. It's not a terrible flick. The sun WILL come out tomorrow.
Tomatometer The new-look Annie hints at a progressive take on a well-worn story, but smothers its likable cast under clichés, cloying cuteness, and a distasteful materialism.

Staff evaluation Update of classic musical is cute but a bit hokey.
