Annie Reviews

John Huston is the wrong director, lacking appreciation for the musical genre
April 16, 2007
The movie offers an insulting 'let them eat cake' gesture toward the 1982 audience, but the pacing is so ragged and the characters so lifeless that few will be able to stay awake long enough to feel offended.

Many people said John Huston was an odd choice to direct Annie and he proves them right.

The songs never take off into anything very much, the whole atmosphere (apart from the climax) is distinctly stagebound, and Huston merely reveals why he had never before in his long career been hired to make a musical.

Huston's biggest misfire; ponderous and sluggish.
