    This complex tale is told with great buoyancy and wit thanks to the splendid performances.
  2. The pleasure of Ever After is that it never takes itself seriously. [31Jul1998, Pg. 47]

    Barrymore continues to prove herself as a performer of extraordinary range and charisma, and is simply sublime in the leading role.
  4. There's no reason for stretching this tale to more than two hours, but Huston is amusingly tart as the stepmom, and it's hard to resist a movie that substitutes Leonardo da Vinci for the traditional fairy godmother.

    Tennant takes this familiar material and crafts a charming, captivating motion picture.
  6. The playful and well-meaning spirit of the film carries it through its shakier moments of awkward narration and inscrutably busy camerawork.
  7. 10
    It's... directed by Andy Tennant ("It Takes Two") with all the flair of an episode of "7th Heaven", making it that much more worth avoiding.
