Goofs

When Cinderella and her fairy godmother are in the pumpkin going to the ball at the end of "Impossible/It's Possible," watch Whitney Houston's mouth. There's one point where she's singing and her jaw is moving as if there is vibrato in the note, but if you listen to the note, it's a straight tone. See more »

Quotes

Queen Constantina: No one seems to know. She is stunning isn't she?
King: A vision. Why, if I were young man I'd.
[pause]
Queen Constantina: Yes, dear?
King: Well, I'd be younger, wouldn't I?

Rodger and Hammerstein Did It Again!
4 June 1999 | by Al-174See all my reviews

One of Rodger and Hammerstein's masterpiece. Although this TV movie is a remake, you just can't get enough of Brandy, Paolo Montalban, Whoopi Goldberg, Whitney Houston, Bernadette Peters, and all of the casts that makes this movie a classic. Listen to the music. Hear its glory.
