A CINDERELLA STORY (2004 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

A Cinderella Story turns itself into a respectable teen girly flick that resources the talents of Hilary Duff. Hilary Duff definitely needs improvement in her acting style in order to extend her career beyond this level of entertainment, but at some level her approach to interpreting this script works. This film appeals specifically to the young to teen audience.

Storyline

Cinderella is re-born into a modern setting when Samantha Montgomery’s (Hilary Duff) father dies and leaves her under the care of step-mother, Fiona (Jennifer Coolidge), who favors her own children over Sam.

Additional Thanks

Thank You to Director Mark Rosman for his directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Keith Giglio, Peter Greene, and Michael Rachmil for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Austin (Chad Michael Murray), Carter (Dan Byrd), Rhonda (Regina King), Shelby (Julie Gonzalo), Mrs. Wells (Lin Shaye), Brianna (Madeline Zima), and Gabriella (Andrea Avery Ray).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It could be so much better than what it is.
