Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: In its attempt to fuse a fairy-tale fantasy with a modern sensibility, the movie winds up a corny, derivative mishmash.
Fresh: A thoroughly charming performer with a bracing freshness about her that carries the film, [Hathaway] establishes credible chemistry with Brit thesp Dancy.
Fresh: Artful enough to intrigue adults and far more original than other versions of Cinderella portrayed onscreen with alarming regularity.
Rotten: An overcalculated fusion of Shrek and The Princess Bride with all the smarts replaced by smartass.
It's a great classic
When I first saw this movie, I loved it. I hope that you will too!
Not for lovers of the book
If you have read and loved the book by Gail Carson Levine, either don't watch this movie or watch it without expectation for any semblance of a connection between the book and the movie. It's breaking my heart that they didn't stay true to the book.
