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

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.

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.

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

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

The old tale still has life and passion in it.

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.

A Cinderella without mice as coachmen, in other words, had better have a mighty fine excuse for tampering with a successful formula. Against many odds, Ever After comes up with a good one.

Ever After is a droll, uneven treatment of a familiar story that could become as popular with children as the 1950 Disney cartoon version.

Barrymore has the sort of charm that can make you cockeyed with happiness.

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

Handsomely set in 15th-century France, it gracefully folds in all sorts of 20th-century values.
