New DVD releases out March 17 feature films for the family.
This film combines the kind of frantic, colorful action that will hold the attention of youngsters with the smart and wacky humor adults like to see. Finding films that work for multiple generations is always a blessing.
This is not the beloved story of an orphan with unlimited optimism. The new “Annie” has been stripped of its messages about a better tomorrow, drained of its holiday themes and saddled with a foster child plot line that makes the big adoption sequence less appealing.
These flaws could have been overlooked had the film not been loaded with so many embarrassingly bad performances, starting with Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan and ending with Annie herself, Quvenzhané Wallis.
The DVD is a collection of performances featuring McCartney, Dave Grohl, Joe Walsh, Alicia Keys, Coldplay, Norah Jones, Neil Young with Crazy Horse, Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas, James Taylor, Diana Krall, Duane Eddy, Sergio Mendes and The Beatles “Love” cast.
This is a must for fans of The Beatles, plus proceeds will support MusiCares.
