It’s amazing how bland Annie is – even bearing in mind it’s a ‘family film’, even bearing in mind that it was designed as a Christmas release in the US. It’s like a theme park where there aren’t any rides, or at least no exciting rides – just a carousel and a couple of go-karts – and your kids can drink Pepsi and eat candy all day. The kids will probably enjoy it, but you still have to wonder: is this what $65 million gets you these days?

Will Gluck’s film goes to desperate lengths to justify this modern retelling of the monster stage hit (and late-period John Huston head-scratcher), and while there’s actually much truth to the notion that business elites strive to give themselves all the good breaks from the comfort of a public seat, the film is a honking mess which values the quick fix over the long game.

Did I really just watch Foxx and Wallis do an entire musical number set inside a moving helicopter? I did, and I’ve never felt more embarrassed for two actors, mostly because Foxx seems embarrassed for himself.
