First off- this movie is a MUSICAL which Disney so cleverly seemed to forget to point out during the trailer, Im not a Broadway fan so I was quite surprised when the first 20 minutes was one long mindless song in which the characters would sing about anything that came to mind. After that settled, the ENTIRE movie barring maybe 15 minutes is all one giant uninteresting song that had no charm or zest to make it memorable. The few big things I will point out to discourage you from watching this mess is the singing was dreadful and unmemorable, confusing and thin storyline that seemed it was made through a game of pin the donkey, the cast choice was weird especially Anna Kendrick who did not fit the role of Cinderalla at all. Also how the movie dragged on for another 45 minutes after seemingly ending nicely after which many people decided to leave the theatre.
My main conclusion- lots of potential- falls completely short through the slowness and utter chaotic storyline, dreadful and boring songs that engulf the movie into a mindless musical about utter nonsense, and a cast that you wish would disappear 20 minutes into the movie. Disney tricked me into seeing this knowing that it being a musical would not attract many people, but movies like grease put this disaster to shame. 1/10- (one positive- I had a fantastic sleep during the last 20 minutes)
