My party enjoyed this remake.
28 February 2002 | by (Washington, USA) – See all my reviews

Saw this one with four other people, and the reviews were quite good. Could do without the "modernized" sound in some of the songs, and the ending scene of this movie just sort of drags on for no reason, but most of the music is very good. Brandy is alright as Cinderella but her singing voice is a little too breathy. The multi-racial cast was strange but didn't bother me. Funny how a white guy and a black lady having an Asian son confuses us, but we are perfectly okay with the idea of a pumpkin turning into a carriage. And as long we're on the subject of skin color and carriages, the four white carriage horses could have participated in the political correctness. Would like to have seen one white horse, one black, one chestnut and one pinto. :o) Also a little more color in the dresses at the ball, as all of them were light blue or turquoise or lavender or green, no yellow, pink or white anywhere. Still, this was an enjoyable movie overall, maybe a bit too "updated", but by no means unpleasant. Fine effort and it made for a nice evening.
