    An amazing Cinderella remake that I would suggest to anyone with children or even adults as it has awe inspiring messages and amazing acting. Also considered by some movie goers and home owners as the best retelling of Cinderella, period. Many would say Ever After easily matched if not overwhelmed the original Disney movie in both originality and plot.

  1. Obviously, Barrymore is not ideally cast outside modern times, but her presence is so good-natured that she makes an audience want to work with her.
  2. Tennant and company do a fine job of retaining the otherworldliness of a fairy tale while at the same time explaining all the archaisms for a modern audience.
  3. Well, I didn't exactly leave the theatre barefoot, but there's a lot to like here -- the result is pretty darn cute and hardly ever cloying.
