A wasted afternoon - Annie 2014

Oh dear some things are just so wrong! I saw a Graham Norton show recently and two of the guests were Cameron Diaz and Jamie Fox promoting their new film Annie (2014). They talked about the music being updated as well as the setting, quoting Jay-Z's 'It's a hard knock life"; so I thought why not?

Normally I don't go to the cinema much, I wait till a film comes out at a 'setback near me' and watch 3 or 4 in a row, but my daughter likes the cinema and loves musicals so I thought it would be a great thing to do together.

So today, boxing day we went to the cinema excited about the film.

The popcorn and 'pick'n'mix' was ok and it was a nice building but that was it. The film would have been ok if the music was simply a soundtrack but them bursting into song, made a bad film awful.

Don't waste your money.
