    Yes, it's OK with the apostrophe.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    Hello Prince,

    I believe that many native speakers would be more comfortable with "any":

    She doesn't have any manners.
    She doesn't have any manners at all [for emphasis].

    Here are some examples from an expert (Michael Swan in his reliable Practical English Usage):

    Do you play any games at all?
    She doesn't speak any English at all.
