Painfully sweet

I'm all for something nice and cheesy every now and then. I honestly like most traditional Disney cartoon movies (even though the idea of a young girl having nothing better to do with her life than dreaming of a prince is quite insulting), but this real life adaption was just too sweet. I felt like I was going into a severe diabetic shock or something while enduring the film (and even my 7 year old wasn't all that impressed by it .. too little humor I think). There were some nice things about it .. nice scenery, Cate Blanchett & Helena Bonham Carter and a few decent special effects, but it really lacked everything else. There was just nothing captivating or moving about it .. nothing to really "stir the heart". Just overly simplistic sweetness and kindness and so on ...

Charming (not just talking about the prince)

Having grown up watching Disney princess movies, I was immediately drawn to this rendition of Cinderella. It did not disappoint either. The story line was updated *just enough* for modern audiences to enjoy, while still keeping that magical and enchanting element. Instead of having Cinderella fall in love with a dashing prince at the ball, she (shocker) got to get to know him and fall in love with his true character before ever even knowing he was a prince. Along with that, Cinderella had a stellar cast. Lily James was amazing at channeling the innocence of Cinderella, Cate Blanchett played an absolutely gorgeous, yet evil stepmother, and Helena Bonham Carter is now my favorite fairy godmother! Although I enjoyed the movie, I found it to be a little longer than I desired. With a running time of just under two hours, I do not know how all these small children made it all the way through! I would recommend any Disney fan to come see this film. Anyone who is not a huge Disney fan may not f...(more)

I would recommend any Disney fan to come see this film. Anyone who is not a huge Disney fan may not find it as appealing due to the fact that it is so heavily influenced by the "original" Disney Cinderella film.

And as a side note, any fans of Frozen can enjoy an adorable Frozen short before the feature. (less)

charming but eye-roll-inducing

The film was surprisingly enjoyable, though it really did not offer much to differentiate itself from the animated film. The costumes are beautiful. The Prince has a bit more of a fleshed out role. And while I have a very high tolerance for cheesiness and suspension of disbelief, some bits were too much even for me. I burst out laughing when Cinderella is on a swing in a gown that’s ten feet wide. But most laughable of all was the climactic fleeing from the palace, where the clock spends a good ten minutes striking midnight. She has time to run through the gardens, palace, and so forth; stop for a chat with the king; and spend quality time hesitating and angsting over her decision… all in the time the clock struck midnight. So, all in all, an enjoyable two hours, but nothing that I care to watch again.
