  1. It's not a terrible movie, just a disappointingly pleasant one.
  2. 40
    Under the charmless direction of Mark Rosman, the actors seem to be frozen at the rehearsal stage, with the blessed exception of a sublimely funny Jennifer Coolidge as the Botoxed horror of a stepmother.
  3. 30
    Having defused the fairy tale, first-time screenwriter Leigh Dunlap pads this out to 96 minutes with stale high school politics and the usual claptrap about believing in yourself.
  4. 25
    The sort of entertainment that makes you happy to be grown up and able to avoid the current onslaught of trite, lazy, unimaginative films aimed at tween-agers.
  5. 10
    At worst, it’s an insult even to the intelligence of 12-year olds.

Keeping the love story half and theThe title of this movie won't give much away, as it isn't completely similar to the original Cinderella. Keeping the love story half and the "evil stepmother" half, it creates the similarities. Ultimately, A Cinderella Story takes you through a journey which all girls probably around the age of 12 would enjoy watching. Expand

    I hated this movie. This is in no way funny, or even a way to get young teens of the 21st century into Cinderella. I get that it's "CinderellaI hated this movie. This is in no way funny, or even a way to get young teens of the 21st century into Cinderella. I get that it's "Cinderella for the digital age", but it's not funny, not interesting, and downright, unbearable to watch.

    Hilary Duff is fine in the lead role, but there are times where her character just seems unlikable at times, you know it's problematic when the lead character who you're supposed to identify with, is not likable at all. Don't even get me started on Jennifer Coolidge as the evil stepmother, whoever gave this woman a comedy career clearly doesn't know what comedy is, she was never funny...or at least I don't find her funny.

    There is nothing else I can say...this movie is just bad.
