Alice Howell stars as Cinderella--a lady who has almost nothing to do with the classic French tale. The first thing you'll notice about her is her amazingly bizarre hairstyle. The next thing you may notice is that the film isn't all that funny. Now I am NOT saying it's bad or a waste of time--it just doesn't have all that many gags and one of the gags involving spiked punch isn't done well (there isn't nearly enough booze in it to make anyone drunk--especially that fast).
The film starts off with Cinderella working at a diner. She seems to be doing an amazing job, so naturally her boss fires her. Needing a job, she agrees to be a cook for a rich family. However, soon after this, the family is in a panic--their snooty friends will be upset to find out the Count and Countess de Bunco have canceled. As a last resort, they ask Cinderella and their butler to pretend to be royalty but end up doing a rather lousy job of playing the parts.
By the way, in a cute scene between Cinderella getting fired and being hired as a cook, there are many ladies who chase her. Look carefully and you can see that some of them are obviously guys in drag!
