An adaptation of the fairy tale, Cinderella traces the misadventures of our heroine, who, via the help of her "fairy" (i.e. gay) godmother, is granted heightened sexual prowess to win over Prince Charming. After a blindfolded orgy at the royal castle, the nerdy Prince must sleep with every willing woman in his kingdom until he finds that one, mysterious lover who so "stood out" on the night of the sex Ball.Written by
In the final scene of the film the mouth of the fairy Godmother does not match the spoken dialogue. See more »

The Italian DVD is in its proper aspect ratio, however it's missing the Wicked Stepmother's song "It's So Hard to Find a Man," as well as a few seconds of two scenes featuring the Lord Chamberlain and the farmer's daughters. See more »
You have to be in the mood for this movie. (maybe a brewski and no dress if in Ohio). If you know what to expect, you will like this.
This movie is a living adult comic book, and as such all of the actors except Cheryl Smith (Cinderella), play their roles predictably and very campy. They got it...don't take this seriously and overact. Pretend you are in a High School play. Cy Richardson reprises his role from "Faery Tales", and fits in just fine here. The film I viewed was from cable many years ago, and it shows obvious choppy editing which removed, I presume, some X stuff. Probably these cuts improved the film (such as was claimed by the reviewers of "Alice in Wonderland). The direction is right on target for a sophomoric film. The Chamberlain dismounts his horse and falls screaming down an unseen cliff. He bumps his head while seriously speaking in a farmer's hut. He has an episode with a knife and his finger, ala three stooges minus two (see also Jerry Lewis). This fits if you are really in the mood for this type of film. Doooooooooooooo, Dooooooooooooooo, Dooooooooooooo enjoy.
Cheryl Smith stands out in this film because she acts her part seriously and seems to miss the juvenile theme of this movie. Her acting makes this movie work. Intentional or not, her acting evokes the demanded sympathy toward her character. She is really outstanding here, either by design or because she really thought this was a serious film. Without her it would be junk. Good mindless fun to watch. I liked it.
