    This complex tale is told with great buoyancy and wit thanks to the splendid performances.

    The radiant Barrymore energizes Cinderella with a tough core of intelligence and wit.
  3. In this modern retelling of the well-known fable, she is one princess-in-waiting who does not need rescuing by any knight in shining armor. [31 Jul 1998, Pg. N.47]

    Tennant takes this familiar material and crafts a charming, captivating motion picture.
  5. 75
    Here, as the little cinder girl, she is able to at last put aside her bedraggled losers and flower as a fresh young beauty, and she brings poignancy and fire to the role.
  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.
