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.

"A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're fast asleep.
In dreams you will lose your heartaches.
Whatever you wish for, you keep.
Have faith in your dreams, and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling through.
No matter how your heart is grieving,
If you keep on believing,
The dreams that you wish will come true."

"Silence! Time for vicious practical jokes. Perhaps we can put it to better use. Now let me see... There's the large carpet in the main hall; clean it! And the WINDOWS-upstairs and down-wash them! Oh yes, and the tapestries and the draperies-"
