Hey! I'm your fella, Cinderella!

Believe it, or not, I was ("once-upon-a-time"), very much, madly in love with the Cinderella character in this excellent, animated motion picture. Yep. That's right. When I was just a very small tyke the sweet, singing Cinderella was one of my many-many movie-girlfriends.

With grace and charm, Cinderella beautifully spins this traditional story, delightfully adding some comic embellishments to the overall storyline, which include a couple of very cute, little mice named Gus and Jaq who befriend our poor, put-upon heroine.

In my very biased opinion, Cinderella (the movie) is, without question, one of Disney Studios' most enchanting and spellbinding, animated fairy tales of all. Cinderella is a timeless classic that, once it weaves its magic, is sure to live on in your heart forever.... Tra-la-la-la-la.

It wasn't the first disney movie where the main character had a cute animal(s) sidekick, but it is the one that popularized it. The story is competently told, and by all means it IS a classic, but its message is a bit old fashioned and unrealistic.

Once Upon A Time... (In this under-appreciated Disney delight from 1950) - A pretty, young woman (who is continually berated and abused by her nasty stepmother and stepsisters) is given one fabulous night to finally fulfill her dreams (thanks to her kindly fairy godmother).

With grace and charm, Cinderella beautifully spins its traditional story, adding some priceless comic embellishments to the overall storyline. IMO - The mice characters in Cinderella are amongst the studio's best, and the story moves along at a fairly good clip.

Cinderella is definitely a fairy tale classic of wonder and joy which is in the same league as that of Pinocchio and Sleeping Beauty. Without a doubt - This animated triumph is sure to please the young and the young-at-heart.

This is hands down the best version of Cinderella out there. The music is beautiful. The acting is fantastic. It is star studded- Brandy, Whoopi Goldberg, Whitney Housten, Bernadette Peters, and even Jason Alexander. It is also the most racially diverse Cinderella you will ever see. Perfect for kids and adults a like, this movie will make for A Lovely Night.
Note- This movie features songs by Rodgers & Hammerstein, not the songs from the Disney version. It's okay though, because they are better. And also are sung by the whole cast.

Having only seen it in childhood, it was a little surprising to watch it again, surprising because it was so ridiculous and even immoral. Cinderella's family are extremely flat characters who have less presence than their cat, and their nastiness is an utter caricature and left unexplained. The main male character, the prince, is flatter than a pancake and falls in love after seeing and dancing with a woman once! (what message does that send to girls about men?) Worst of all is the main message, namely that hope begets magic which begets results; obviously false. The most enjoyable characters were the mice!

The movie “Cinderella” is a classic favourite. I must admit “Cinderella” was the first Disney movie I ever watched and ever since then, Cinderella is still my most favourite princess. I sometimes wonder if it will stay like that forever. The whole idea, imagination, and creativity amuse's me so much. Everything about this movie is amazing, but I only have one question regarding her glass slipper. If her glass slipper perfectly fits her, how did it fall off in the first place? I would rate this movie a 5/5 and I definitely recommend everyone to watch this movie or at least read the books. It is a classic favourite for a reason

Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo!

I would like to dedicate this review of Cinderella to a very special someone named Zeke. Even though Zeke says that Disney animated films suck, I think he secretly likes them, but he's too much of a machoman to admit it.

Cinderella is one of the most celebrated of all the Disney classics. This film has enchanted movie-goers for generations with its spellbinding story, charming music and endearing characters.

This beloved fairy tale becomes pure "magic" as the beautiful Cinderella shares her dreams of romance and a better life with the lovable mice Gus and Jaq.

There you go, Zeke. I know you're just dying to see Cinderella for yourself. Don't be shy. You just might be pleasantly surprised by how much you actually enjoy it.

I watched Cinderella when I was a little kid and loved it. I took my daughter to watch it on a special matinee session and she also enjoyed it very much. As an adult enjoyed watching it again. It was no longer the magic of my childhood, but a cute story, besides Disney's fantastic production. I just don't understand why this movie would upset people so much they would turn its romantic naivete into a political battle... And since the plot is so well-known, I cannot understand why someone who dislikes the story would watch it... Anyway, I highly recommend this for mothers to watch with their daughters.

It is obvious that Disney made this into a multi-racial tale in order to attract the largest audience. The studio may have succeeded with that, but not much else. And as for the music of Richard Rodgers, the only worthwhile tunes are the ones that were resurrected from previous musicals. Disappointing.

"Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo!"

Yeah. Yeah. I know full-well that the story of Cinderella was, pretty much, just an empty-headed, little fairy tale about wishful thinking, and such - But, all the same, I found that there was definitely some really peculiar problems with this tale (as a whole) that prevented me, as an adult, from giving it more than an average rating of 2.5 stars.

I mean, not only was Prince Charming just another pretty face with no personality to speak of at all, and his father, the king, a blustering idiot of the highest order - But I also seriously thought that the Cinderella character was clearly missing some of her marbles and even teetering on the edge of insanity by having real conversations with a bunch of mice and actually fashioning clothes for them.

Another thing that caused me to doubt Cinderella as being a rational-thinking person was the fact that she allowed herself to be locked up in a tower and treated like pure garbage by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters. Like, wasn't there such things as "Human Rights" back in those days? Surely Cinderella could've found a reasonable out from having to endure the torment from these decidedly wretched people.

I also found it rather odd that this animated film's most entertaining moments had little at all to do with Cinderella and more to do with the slapstick shenanigans that went on between the non-human characters, like Lucifer, the cat, and the colony of smartly dressed mice.

A classic that never grows old. The animation is impeccable and so is the story... even if you don't believe someone can fall in love in one night. Turns out this cartoon saved Disney from bankruptcy, since their previous features - including Bambi - failed at the box office at first.

Breathes life into the oft-told tale with great songs, scenes that tug at the emotions, and the requisite happy ending.
