Audience Reviews for Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella

I love this version of Cinderella. The songs are so catchy and great. And the casting was wonderful.

The dialogue was simplistic, the acting was cheesy and the special effects... weren't so special... But that's all part of the appeal. It's silly and entertaining. It's not nearly as polished as the original but this remake is still quite amusing.

BTW, how can a white man and black woman spawn an asian child?

I LOVED the music but it was just weird that a black mother and white father made an Asian kid. The black stepmother has a white daughter. It was unique that they did that but also a little distracting. Brandy is a good singer... but maybe not as great at acting. But I did watch this one a few times so I suppose it's memorable for its music!
