Storyline

Based on the fairy tale: Cinderella is mistreated by her stepmother and stepsisters, and is forced to live as their servant. One day, the Fairy Godmother appears to the family disguised as an elderly, destitute woman. The others treat her harshly, but Cinderella is kind to her and feeds her. The Fairy Godmother invisibly helps Cinderella, helping her when she goes to gather wood, and enabling her to meet Prince Charming as he travels through the forest. Soon afterward, the king plans a great ball so that the prince can meet all the women and choose one for his bride. Cinderella must help her family prepare for the ball, while she stays at home. But the Fairy Godmother appears again, and miraculously enables Cinderella to go after all, with dramatic consequences. Written by Snow Leopard

man, film makers used to have more fun.
27 December 2006 | by (porltand, or) – See all my reviews

Really this film isn't very good, but echoing another comment I made somewhere on here, don't you think making movies used to be more fun? The ugly sisters played by a bunch of ridiculous men? The gaggle of silly kids that are the forest fairies? they must have had a blast! I guess because these weren't considered art there was no pretension that they should be classy. the tone of it was a little like a john waters film. The trick to enjoying a film like this is to forget how important movies are to us, as people, as a culture, as individuals. I tell people I'm an independent film maker and generally the regard that either like I must be crazy or like I'm doctor or something, which is cool, but imagine back in the days when you'd have been treated like hustler like a pimp, how could you treat yourself that seriously? Anyways, this movie is pretty much totally dumb, but so is Cinderella. The whole shoe thing? He falls in love with a girl who he's never met and doesn't even get a name out of, and decides to track her down by having every woman in the land try on her shoe? so why didn't the shoe turn back into a pumpkin or squash or whatever? no one in the kingdom had Cinderella's shoe size? if he never met her but she was dressed like princess wouldn't it be a safe assumption that she's not actually in your kingdom? royalty tends to know the other royalty nearby. and also if he's so damn in love with why can't he pick out her face? it can't have looked that different without the accoutrement of the ball. also: he's going to marry a peasant? is he crazy? the king and queen don't want him to use that marriage for something beneficial like making peace or pooling power with allies? all the while everyone knows he probably could have just hired poor Cinderella, put her up at the castle and had his way with her any time he felt like it, which is pretty much what royalty did back then. for example henry the... what the crap was I saying? I got distracted. oh, yeah. I would give anything to have worked on a movie like this. but that doesn't mean you'll enjoy the movie per Se.
