An affable film that helped affirm Drew Barrymore's place in the Hollywood firmament as something cosier than a one-trick wild child.

Drew Barrymore plays the complicated belle of the climactic ball and develops a convincing intellectually based friendship with the prince.

Once upon a time there was a feisty young woman who didn't sit around twiddling her pretty thumbs and singing "Someday My Prince Will Come."

The script by Susannah Grant, Rick Parks and director Andy Tennant successfully maintains the story's period trappings while introducing a heroine with modern resonance.

A delightful movie, full of feisty, three-dimensional characters romping through comedy, romance and otherwise gloriously colorful moments.

Given that this is adolescent romance, never straying far from traditional stereotypes, its 'progressive' feel-good aura is mainly down to Barrymore, whose limitations are only exposed in big love scenes.

Drew Barrymore is delightful as Danielle, straightforward yet provocative, beautiful even when her face is smeared with the ashes from the fireplace.

You won't see a fairy godmother flitting from scene to scene. Nor will a pumpkin magically transform into a chariot.

The real magic is found in Andrew Dunn's stunningly lovely photography, which makes every scene look like a vintage storybook illustration.

There are a few nice moments when Barrymore's acting talent shines through, and the same can be said for Huston and Scott. But as a romantic comedy, this film is only slightly above average.
