No matter what the beer distributors and limo drivers of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association say, honoring the young star with the title role with a nomination, I don’t have high hopes for this “Annie” updating. The original was creaky and hopelessly dated, but had a couple of good tunes and worked in its time.
How hip can you make Little Orphan Annie?
But we’ll see. Jamie Foxx et. al will do their best to bring it, and Ms. Wallis is a charmer.
