    Default All Things:MUSICALS

    Annie (2014),,2048...883399,00.html

    Musically, Annie is a disaster. The melodious original score by Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin gets the full-on Autotune pap treatment, which takes to these songs about as well as a lute to death metal. You won't ever hear a worse rendition of ''Easy Street'' than the one performed by Diaz and Cannivale—I promise. (The Sia-branded new songs feel much more at home.) One can only hope that Byrne, Diaz, and Cannavale had ''movie musical'' on their bucket lists and will never tarnish their talents in such a way again. Aside from an unintentional homage to Zoolander that is so tone-deaf it'll make you guffaw, Annie goes out of its way to make viewing it a hard-knock life...for us. D

    Just saw into the woods. Hadn't seen the play before or known any of the songs but I thought it was a great date night movie for the Mrs. There wasn't any really standout performance but the Agony bit between the princes must have been one of the most memorable shooting days of the year. Anna Kendrick was her usual hot self. In general I thought they did well even though I know it won't be exactly the same as the play and that they had to change some things.
