One of the best animated features in the Disney stable, this was also the box office smash that saved Walt's studio during the precarious post-war period.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
One of Disney's most admired feature animations, Cinderella was nominated for several Oscars.
| Original Score: B+
It's not all action, and while there's plenty to keep the kids entertained, there are also nice poetic touches of animated artistry that will appeal more to adults.
| Original Score: 4/5
Sweet fairy tale classic for little princesses.
| Original Score: 5/5
Great animation, but not quite as great as the pre-war standard; deeply problematic gender issues in a reed-thin story; some brilliant characters, a lot of fairly dull ones.
| Original Score: 7/10
Yes, it's beautiful, and yes, it's classic. But it's also got rather a bland pair of lead characters. That said, it's still enjoyable family entertainment, and shall remain forever so.
Cinderella is beguiling proof that Walt Disney still knows his way around fairyland.
The musical numbers woven into the fantasy are generally solid, with at least two or three likely hit tunes standing out in the half-dozen songs.
Excellent animation, marvelous color, and lovely music make Cinderella a delight all the way around.
| Original Score: 4/4
This 1950 effort shows Disney at the tail end of his best period, when his backgrounds were still luminous with depth and detail and his incidental characters still had range and bite.
Considering the army of craftsmen who work on a Disney cartoon film, it is hard to give individual credits, for the memorable qualities.
As usual, everything is slightly glossy, soppy and hearty, yet not a string is left untwanged.
...there's no denying the overall effectiveness of this familiar tale.
| Original Score: 3/4
Of all the Cinderella stories on film, this one has the most villainous stepmother (voiced by Eleanor Audley) and the most charming mice.
Disney films have lasted for years by those good-natured moments and the superlative animation...
| Original Score: 4.5/5
Represents, alas, the early stages of Disney-itis… follows the fairy-tale template [but] doesn't do much to elevate the material the way [Disney's] earlier features did.
| Original Score: B
The 1950 classic arrives on DVD for the first time with its charm enhanced and plenty of extras to delight fans of the fairytale.
| Original Score: 3/5
A trim hour and change worth of Gerber life lessons.
| Original Score: 2/4
the mice are the reason to see this movie
| Original Score: 3.5/5
It's Lynchian--Buñuelian, too.
