At one point Queen Marie (Judy Parfitt) tells Henry (Dougray Scott) to choose a wife wisely, because "divorce is only something they do in England." This is obviously a reference to the infamous Henry VIII of England, who caused an immense scandal when he divorced Catherine of Aragon for Anne Boleyn in the early 16th century. See more »

To me this was the best remake of a fairytale ever! And I don't care if it's because I'm a girl and this is girlie material- I still loved it! Drew Barrymore personified this interpretation of Cinderella like no other. Angelica Houston was a kick ass evil stepmother. The combination of these two dynamite stars in these two classic roles created an unequaled magic. And of course let's not forget the freakishly handsome Dougray Scott who played Prince Henry. He graced the screen with a hypnotic charm that challenges any prince any day. This is my all time favourite movie. I can watch it over and over again. And I challenge any man to watch this film and understand what romance is really all about.
