Quotes

Cinderella: Fairy godmother, where are you? It's not fair. It's all just a cruel joke. I don't like your sense of humour anymore. I'm hopelessly in love and I'll never see him again. I wish there'd never been any magic and I wish you had never come here. Because then I would never have known what I was missing. I love you, Prince Henry.

Great!

I have loved this movie since I was about five. In fact, this is how I characterize Matthew Broderick, since this was the first role I ever saw him perform. He looks so young! He did a great job of performing Prince Henry; he is so witty and is very charming in this role! Jean Stapleton is so good, she almost steals the whole show for herself! I'll take her as my fairy godmother any day! She is just so loveable and she is so funny. Jennifer Beals was very good in this role; usually Cinderella is fair haired and fair complected but Jennifer Beals is dark-haired and dark-complected, and she is still very beautiful. Jennifer Beals and Matthew Broderick's chemistry is absolutely perfect, and you would almost think they would have made a good couple! I thought that their dance number was wonderful; oh I wish I had grace! The stepmother and stepsisters were your classic love-to-hate characters and they are exactly how I would imagine the stepmother and stepsisters in a live-action performance. A very well done show. I could watch it a million times in a day if I wanted to. My mother loves it even!
