Though director Andy Tennant was enthusiastic about putting this kind of spin on Cinderella, his touch turns out to be counterproductive.

Nothing great here, but it is a pleasant film to watch and is nicely visualized.

There are some nice enhancements to the yarn, like the stepsisters not being particularly ugly (one even turns out to be an ally), and the prince not wanting "those certain obligations that come with privilege."

Too much talk, not enough wooing. In the end, Ever After's spell is only half cast.

Too bad Barrymore's charming personality goes to waste in Ever After, a reworking of Cinderella with muddled motives and uneven execution.

Veering wildly between farce and suds, the movie never makes up its mind whether it's a spoof, a soap opera or a feminist pep talk.

Barrymore is terribly attractive and admirable as Danielle and she brings a strength to the role that makes her a wonderful foil to Huston's venom.

Barrymore is the ideal revisionist Cinderella.

Romantics will no doubt enjoy Ever After, easily overlooking its flaws. Others who attend will find, while not a perfect film, one which is better than they hoped.

As romantic and satisfying as any good fairy.
