Annie 2014 is getting a lot of backlash and criticism but the only thing that  really matters is little girls loved it and the clothing line is almost nonexistent(sold out) at Target……..speaks volumes

At just 11 years old, Quvenzhané Wallis has already starred in 3 major motion pictures, is the youngest person ever to receive an Oscar nomination for best actress, and is the first Black child to receive an Oscar nomination. Now, after leading a remake of the classic story of “Annie”, she has been nominated for a Golden Globe for best actress. Her quote comes from an interview in which the interviewer insisted on calling her Annie because her name was “too difficult” to pronounce.

So, I saw the new Annie film a few days ago...

…And I must say that I have absolutely no clue why the critics are complaining so much about this movie.

It’s a good movie.

Quvenzhane Wallis was endearing as Annie, as was Jaime Foxx as Mr. Stacks; the music was lovely; and the story fit with the “Orphan Annie” mythos while simultaneously adding more modern elements to it. 

I mean, does it have some problems? Sure–but it most definitely isn’t the wreck that critics have been claiming it to be. It’s a cute family film and I recommend it to all my followers.
