| A positive review of this underrated flick
A positive review of this movie? INSANITY! Call the witch hunters, because I must be insane.

On a more serious note, this movie isn't nearly as bad or pointless as everyone says it is. What makes this movie good? The characters are lovable and stay true to how they were in the original movie. We have, of course, Cinderella. One thing I really love about the Cinderella sequels is how faithful to the original character the writers are. She's still the same person we all know and love from the 1950 classic (though her saying "ew" in the first story is absolutely cringe-worthy and out-of-character, but that's just one moment). She's kind, caring, patient, witty, and is willing to be the better person. We get the adorable mice from the original, Jaq and Gus. They are likable and full of personality as ever. Even in human form, Jaq is still endearing. The songs in the movie are very good and are brilliantly sung by Brooke Allison, even if they are a little pop-ish and out of place for something like Cinderella. The score by Michael Tavera is excellent, in my opinion. The animation, while not nearly as good as the original or A Twist in Time, is nice and pleasant.

And then there are the three "episodes" in the movie. Why do people hate these stories so much? Two of the three, "Aim to Please" and "An Uncommon Romance" (the latter being my favorite of the three stories), are well-written and charming. Even "Tall Tail", which I consider to be the weakest of the three stories, has its moments.

Overall, we have a genuinely good movie that's way underrated and doesn't deserve the amount of hate it gets. Is it a masterpiece? No, of course not. Is it as good as the original or even the third movie? HELL, no. However, this is still a worthy sequel that is, in my opinion, more than just a money-grubber.
