    There are no creativity at all, not funny.... Classical Disney live action film with updates of the Cinderella

    I know. I know. A teen bopper movie starring Hilary Duff. It's gonna suck...right? That's what I thought until I watched it. Yeah, so it's a modern day version of Cinderella, but so what! Hilary Duff pulled it off portraying a believable, likable character. Even though you knew how this was going to end, sometimes it's good to watch those fairy tale endings. Popcorn Bag Award goes to Hilary Duff. Job well done

    Nice, light drama for teenagers (especially girls).
