Cultural in-jokes and inspired animation spark a very funny Avery outing...
19 November 2009 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

A lascivious wolf stops chasing Red Riding Hood long enough to take part in a Cinderella story--with the heroine a dead-ringer for Bette Davis! This Cinderella, with mascara-circled eyes and a voice dripping with disdain, wants to go to the ball all right, but only because she's the sultry stage chanteuse; her Fairy Godmother has eyes for the wolf herself--but even dolled up in Old Lady Chic, she can't get his attention. Using a particularly expressive style of animation here, Tex Avery gives us a grown-up Cinderella with more curves than the Hollywood Freeway! Jessica Rabbit would envy this bombshell, which makes the tag at the finish line even funnier as Cindy returns to her duty as an aircraft riveter on-board a bus full of wolves. She may have gone back to her working girl roots, but the guys love her anyway.
