My daughters were so excited to see this one, what a complete disappointment!
Even Kate Blanchet couldn't save it. The real problem was the script. Nothing new added to the original story, vague plot, and BORING! The set and actual picture of it was magnificent, but sadly lost in the mediocre acting and sappy sad story.
I'd so much rather watch the original Disney cartoon. If you're looking for a Maleficent style re-do of the classic story then watch Ever After with Drew Barrymore.
Honestly, there were parts of this movie that made me cringe to think my daughters were watching. Was Disney trying to redeem the story with the be brave and kind line? At one point, Cinderella states that spending one night with the prince would make memories to keep her warm for the rest of her life. Really? And they couldn't find a dress that would hold her breasts? I kept thinking maybe the target audience was actually 13 year old boys!! I was so bored I wanted to get up and leave.
Even my girls, who watched intently, left disappointed and said afterward that it was "okay." Now that's an honest review of this movie! Disney sure disappointed with this one.
