Kelly & Michael: Annie Review

Kelly called him the most talented person she’s met in her life. He did something they said never to do: work with kids and animals. Quvenzhané Wallis, who was nominated for an Oscar at age 9 for Beasts of the Southern Wild, is an old soul and really talented. She was nominated for a Golden Globe and could just learn lines on the spot. She’s not like any other kid. Jay Z also redid “It’s a Hard Knock Life.” Then, he and Will Smith got the rights to Annie.

Foxx based his character on Sean Combs. He’s such a big personality, but is completely a father. So, he based it on that. Kelly & Michael’s kids loved the movie.

In the clip of Annie, Annie was trying to leave Foxx’s house. She thought he was kicking her out. He wasn’t, but Sandy had to go. It was pretty adorable. Annie will be in theaters on December 19 2014.
