Took the girls to see it this afternoon.  They LOVED it- it was cute,the songs were fun, and it was SO much better than the previous two versions...

 

*** it was to clarify, because two weeks ago, MC was blowing up with people who were horrified at the idea of an Annie remake with a non-white child...

the remake was fun and kicky, and the story lost nothing in it's adaptation to a modern setting... in my opinion, of course- would not dare to speak for everyone...

Why do you feel the need to identify a child by their race... why not just Annie or the new Annie.

I refuse to see that movie. No it will not be better then the originals. It'll never come close to being like the originals. My 6 year old has even stated she won't see the new one, she prefers the one from the 80s and 90s.
