News & Interviews for The Slipper and the Rose: The Story of Cinderella
Critic Reviews for The Slipper and the Rose: The Story of Cinderella
A cutely off-kilter riff on a familiar story, with just enough peculiar fascination with the unexplored ramifications of that story to feel like its own thing.
Audience Reviews for The Slipper and the Rose: The Story of Cinderella
I think the Slipper & The Rose is one of the best Cinderella movies of all time. It is has more charm and romance than most versions do and it also has the best prince I've seen out of all the versions that have been done. He is manly and has strong conviction in marrying for love rather than duty which any girl would want to hear. The music is beautiful, witty, fun, and engaging. My sister and I grew up watching it and still love it just as much today. It is longer than most Cinderella movies but the layers of complication and attention to details many versions leave out makes it more enjoyable. I think this has been a film neglected far to long and wish everyone could see it and fall in love with it as we have. The protocol song is very witty, and the dreaming of the night I had with you song captures the romance, hope, and fantasy of the story for both the prince and Cinderella. But the positioning song helps people appreciate servitude from the practical side of things. They all dare to dream, from servant to royalty. Enjoy this film and share it with all you meet!
There isn't much that the Sherman Brothers have been involved with that I do not like, but this was sadly an exception. I was surprised because it is a version of Cinderella that has great reviews and I had high expectations for it. I really disagree with what people have said. It's a very long and boring movie with no memorable songs. (First and only viewing - 10/21/2010)
That the movie is well loved in some circles does not surprise me, but I'm afraid I was most struck with just how long it takes for things to get moving in the this two-and-a-half hour movie. Again, I wouldn't say it was bad; I'd just say that it was not for me.
