After watching the film the only thought I was "why did I watched it?" and answer a question I and failed. What well, maybe his review I will be able to dissuade someone from view and for me will be a relief.

Annie girl — an orphan living with ten girls from the foster mother. The latter is supposedly very angry and tormented girls. But one day a miracle happens and the girl invites you to come to myself, the mayor, to raise its credibility among voters. But the girl Annie was able to melt the heart of a millionaire...

This film — romance, and bad. When the characters started singing was just bad. Can be in the original sounded good, but in the Russian voice of the words of the songs are inaudible and only audible annoying intonations of nursery rhymes.

The main character — Annie was just annoying. The man to whom the audience should empathize with made just as a villain. It is not look at the very poor good orphan, and more like a spoiled and capricious hypocrite.

Also just a silly stepmother, played by Cameron Diaz. Her character is just a pity to her. Because it is not evil not bad (for the whole movie practically, it is not do wrong to anybody have made), and only pity. Have her obvious problems with the head and she needs help...

The only character that was somehow natural was millionaire, played by Jamie Foxx... In his character was at least some natural, but he by the end of the film was unbearable.

In General, the film for me was the target of my negative emotions, but I better not have become. The first middle of the movie is out interesting and contains no dynamics, the dynamics appears only to the second half of the picture. But to watch a movie even only because of this I would be the second time did not, I for the first, then regretted.

It's funny that this mediocre gig — peresmenok that the IMDb rating is only — five to a penny here, at which — magic inexplicable reasons, already close to six with a half points that is an indicator of a very good film (if you believe the ratings, what I have long do not and you suggest). However, there are reasons, and they are not inexplicable, and the contrary.

If you want to please the audience and to touch the hearts of the audience, that act and checked the old method. Let the picture who — else is terminally ill, incredibly lonely and depressed, or, let it is a little orphan girl who is waiting for — never see their parents, her long-abandoned to their fate and piled away from a native of Chad. Yes no. I against such tricks are nothing against that have. Cinema and literature know dozens of decent and good examples (both ancient so quite new), when these stories came out really luxurious and cling — truly. But let, at least, the script is interesting, and the picture is nice and sincere. And the script was interesting, you need to overgrown than — in addition to snotty monologues, predictable sentimentality and oak songs (especially if we are talking about our dubbing).

Diagnosis in picture the following. She fake guys. The false presentation of history, characters it describes, even acting. Fake dialogs inspire, fake emotions convinced do not touch (a must have), fake final is choking on the sudden arising, sweet inspirational happy — end with the universal dances under the curtain. Generally, a happy ending had here, but why, tell me, his honesty is not believe at all? If convinced I mayor that he got better and loved the girl with all your heart? No. Not at all. If convinced me heroine rose Byrne that she loves the mayor and long it dries? No. The problem, among other things, of the character, not the actress. Rose — the only one has shown that at least some — the interest in this project. It is a pity that the heroine is not written as necessary. Could you a child who has found — did your family and happiness? The answer is again negative. Kwinana Wallis played very badly. Very. The shortage of talented actors — children have become extremely severe and I get tired about this repeat. This situation is not happy. Jamie Foxx here do not plays, ridiculous staring at the lens like a sad questioning eyes of the us with you: "I forgot to this painting?", and from the Director: "We soon good, good, will? I do not can!". Is Diaz. And that, in fact, Diaz. She is a crisis in the adult female. And playing, by the way, not bad, but not very good. Maybe due to the fact that so true to her age and creative position. One plastic and a shapely ass can not buy a million fans wholesale. The time came for the young. And courageous novice girls hot breathe in the back of the head, being beaten out in leaders. Have all ahead of them, open horizons, but is Diaz creative the appearance of losing.

The poor will Glaco again, not lucky work. Removing very good youth Comedy "Sex in the friendship", the Director, with then, as not has an attractive and interesting offers. It that makes everything seem right. Here only the script (which the Gluck had a hand) is poor for that — creative funny. As a rule, a family Comedy could and should be fun and bright, a bit chaotic and easy. But "Annie," hardly can be called funny and funny film that can entertain. Situation template to not im not enough ordinary energy. And snot bubbles bursting periodically in front of the viewer, more simply nothing to dilute. Quite catch the place the heroes and heroines are not counted. I this kind of dance — obnimancy not liked. Remember the old "boxers" that are so nice review. And what now? Crisis, trash, stamping, bad taste under a beautiful label.

"Annie" — it's disgusting of the failed musical, weak and not funny Comedy, scarce and a fake family films. Brings it as incorrect a failure cast, so and reluctance to lose what — that is really cool and pleasing to the viewer. What — something that will want to reevaluate the whole family, sitting on the couch in an embrace. Outdated script, of course, can still be treated and polished need a decent view, but not the case. To feel this whole story is not happens when all desire. And not the problem of pessimism of the human and individuality of character, and the problem is inability and the faux pas of writing and acting. Amazing and the fact that tape was worth sixty five million dollars. Where did the money? On the helicopter, the interior of the room and the bag passes in salon Cameron Diaz? Oh, don't know not know the right thing. I the movie is not have not remember I will take sin — recommend it to you. However, if you are highly impressionable and hurt your vocal chords love musicals of all kinds, it is possible that your case. Film two points. Plus one, exclusively for the rose Byrne, which I not nice. just as the actress (in this movie, faintly hammy).

A modern remake of the classic musical at the comics, perhaps, of the of all adaptations of "Little Orphan Annie" came the most bright and positive. Defining the genre of the painting faced with the rare case when it is not just a drama-Comedy-musical, but that is called "film festival", a bright colorful performance, show a positive mood with an inner plot. Such films are not too many, but this interpretation is already have time to dig for these paintings.

Will Gluck shot a gorgeous and spectacular movie, touching the content, filled with talented acting and great music. Of course, when talking about already been filmed musical, we are dealing in fact, only with a re-recording of long-known compositions, but perhaps it is a modern sound to them now is not enough. If the cult and the well-known "It's The Hard-Knock Life" nothing changed, songs like "Tomorrow", "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here" "Little Girls" have changed almost to the recognition.

Their parts the actors are playing themselves, and on the musical component of the modern picture worked celebrities such as Sia, Beck and became a composer of paintings Greg Kurstin. The musical numbers are amazing! Old songs in new ways to life in the performance of Jamie Foxx ("the Amazing Spider-Man 2") and almost eclipsing all Cameron Diaz ("the Mask"). Children, of course, not behind grownups the songs came not bright and bold, and a very cool and sweetheart role went to rose Byrne ("X-Men: First class"), and a great addition to the movie are the characters David Zayas ("Gotham") and Adewale Akinola Agbaje ("Thor 2: the Dark World", "Bullet in head"). Sings even the main villain of the picture in performed by Bobby cannavale ("Parker"), but what this musical is the main villain would not singing?! And as a bonus, the cast has a great scene with parody "Twilight", about the life of mermaids, where the main role played by Mila kunis and Eton Kutcher

Plot all the same that always: orphan Annie and lots of other children live with extremely strict matron, Annie is busy looking for his real parents, and fate brings her to a billionaire opening for a whole new world. Of the of all adaptations of this is the most good. For example, the character Cameron Diaz is very finely crafted and brilliant re-apply for new to still recognizable part, her character greatly enlivened and humanized in compared version 82 99 years.

A big budget allowed to turn on the whole hog — modern electronics, all rich in luxury, flying on helicopters, final action with chase more. For change of skin color the main characters from the film, the wasn't have lost total of canonicity. Have Annie is still curly hair and Fox appears as at least one scene canonical-bald is all the time it hero wears a wig. In the lyrics relationships of the new movie almost copies of the disney version by Rob Marshall, and even better.

A modern adaptation of the went this story just for the favor, a new sound, a new dimension of luxury the rich life and fun, the use of modern gadgets and devices, everything looks really cool, and raised problems and conflicts will not go for this day, staying sharp and relevant, perfectly raised the development of plot and revelation of characters. A great cast and a great musical component, make "Annie" a truly festive and bright event in the world of cinema. Had a wonderful family musical, kind, cute, positive charging and a good mood. And according to the tradition of many comic book adaptations — there's even a fun bonus scene after the credits!
