Movie Info

Kate's dream is to design for couturier houses. Although she is a bright new talent, Kate can't get a job. No one trusts the daughter of Lee Kassell, a retail guru who markets clothes "inspired" by the very designers Kate wants to work for. Who wants a spy among the sequins and stilettos? Reluctantly, Kate joins the family business where she must navigate around her duplicitous stepmother and two wicked stepsisters. With the help of a prince of a guy in the shoe department, her godmother's vintage clothes, and a shocking switch of identities, can Kate expose the evil trio and save her father's company?

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (11)

  • [A] movie that curiously attempts to humanize an aloof industry by associating it with a 17th-century fairy tale.

  • Portia Doubleday stars in a frothy teen comedy as unobjectionable as it is unmemorable.

  • If Shakespeare had a go at "Cinderella," and the result was later adapted for a 21st-century romantic comedy, it might look something like "After the Ball."

    Apr 23, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Certainly, the production values echo those of high-end made-for-TV fare, but the cast and amusing script more than make up for what the movie lacks in gloss.

    Feb 27, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It's pretty much a one-joke effort that wants to be The Devil Wears Prada but plays more like a middling episode of a TV sitcom.

    Feb 26, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Ultimately, if you want to choke on a narrative that is rife with clichés and devoid of any real moral message then stick After The Ball on, if not, there are surely more productive things you can do... Such as watching paint dry.
