Love Drew Berrymoore's STRONG character

They've made a few tweaks to the standard story: no magic, and the Prince gets to know Cinderella before the ball so that their love is based on personality rather than a single dance. It's also unusual amongst rom-coms by having a male friend (equivalent to Buttons) who supports her new romance rather than being the person who she's supposed to be with. That said, the basic structure is still familiar, so you know how it's going to end, and there isn't much going on with the supporting cast to liven it up.

LOOOOOOVED this movie! It's a classic. LOVE Drew Barrymore! I love the entire Cinderella plot, so this movie was great. I really love how they wrote the entire movie. It was just great.

Definitely one of the best period rom-coms I've ever seen. I've never been a fan of romance in movies, but this one is worth it.

A lovely reworking of the Cinderella story with Drew Barrymore playing a more 'modern' role model. I would allow my daughter to watch this movie.....if I had one....

in a real situation, the prince would be dishonored and exiled from his kingdom.

Ever After is a modernist, entirely serious and historical version of the Cinderella story for better and for worse - the costume and set design are excellent and the cinematography is wonderful, the acting is solid and it even has a couple of surprises in its story, but you can't help but wish that there was a bit of magic or comedy in there and it should have been there given its fairytale origin, thus making Disney's version still the best.

I don't know why but I bought it.
People argue Barrymore was not a good choice but I disagree.

Anjelica Houston wears evil marvelously.
"How can anyone love a pebble in their shoe" is the ultimate punch in the face.

With cheesy dialogue and poor acting this is just not a very good movie.

It's appealing to those who love the "Cinderella".

Barrymore ruined it for me, she really did.

A girl's night out fantasy film that doesn't hit par in the genre as far as aesthetics go while the story still flies. It's top asset is Ajelica Huston, who only reminds one of just how much the Huston dynasty has changed from the days of her father. The film, however unlike certain Huston pieces, is good for what it is.

This is a well made movie, with all of the requirements for story telling..... Andy Tennant directed with just the right proportion of reality (beautiful cinematography, costumes, period backgrounds) and fantasy (slightly over the top acting and hauntingly beautiful music) to create this Cinderella story.... Drew Barrymore is as charmingly beautiful as she was in The Wedding Singer and Angelica Huston's nasty character is a pleasure to watch....a good fantasy movie!

My favorite of all the Cinderella film adaptions!

Ever After is a superb take on the classic Cinderella story. Unlike most adaptations of the classic story, this one is neither overly cutesy, nor is it a gritty reboot. Instead, it finds a superb balance between light-hearted and dark. The story is very well written and engaging, the acting is superb from everyone, the humor is hilarious, and it also has plenty of heartfelt moments. If you enjoy a great romance film, this is definitely one to check out because there is not a single flaw I can think of.
