Keeping the Tradition
Even though I didn't think this was the best movie I've ever seen, considering the fact that it's a Cinderella Story so it has to follow certain expectations, I still enjoyed it. Lucy Hale is extremely talented and the rest of cast was actually good at the pot raying the characters they were. The whole thing didn't seem cheesy and scripted like the previous Cinderella Story movie. Yes, it is a girly movie, but then again, what Cinderella movie isn't?
Four stars, and I would watch it again.
I was skeptical when I rented this movie. I had loved the first cinderella story with Hilary Duff but I was majorly disappointed with it's sequel, Another Cinderella story starring Selena Gomez, for acting reasons and a weak plot line (though it is a cinderella story,... so had certain obligations to fill in accordance to the movie theme)
But i couldn't resist watching this one because of Lucy Hale and my curiosity for her singing. The singing was fantastic mind you! The acting of the movie at times was cheesy, but what disney movie isn't (I think it's disney..). I would definitely recommend watching this movie. If you don't want to spend the money on it, then rent it! Or you could watch it online, but it's normally bad quality.
Hope this helped!
Awesome movie !!
It's a really good movie! If you like Lucy hale and the cinderella story movies then you will love this one!
