The classic stage musical (based on the Depression-era comic strip by Harold Gray) gets a modern update. Mostly that means a lot of references to Twitter, Google, Facebook, Vine and YouTube. Quvenzhané Wallis (from Beasts of the Southern Wild) makes for a cute Annie, and Jamie Foxx is acceptable as Daddy Warbucks (here renamed "Bill Stacks"). Unfortunately, writer/director Will Gluck (Easy A) seems to have no talent whatsoever for musicals. Everything is staged in a dull, clunky fashion with no cool costumes, big production numbers, splashy fantasy sequences or anything much in the way of choreography even. 118 minutes PG.
