Funny and sweet update of the Cinderella story.

The movie will wash over adolescent female audiences who don't know any better like melted Brie on 110-degree asphalt, but for the rest of us it's a grueling waste of time.

Duff has yet another brainless movie to add to her repertoire.

I took a friend's 10-year-old daughter to see the film, and she found it 'too childish.' And who am I to argue with a member of this film's target audience?

'A Cinderella Story' makes so many good chocies, you wish you could like it more than you do.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 18, 2004
Rather than anything original or humorous or, heaven forbid, romantic developing from this fable, we get only tired clichés and worn-out stereotypes.

This is simple, lazy storytelling rendered merely functional by appealing leads and the eternal lure of romantic fantasy.

Every high school cliché in the book is dredged up for this piece of fluff
August 8, 2004
It's all way too bland.

I look at "Cinderella Story" as I would look at early Elvis films - this is a teen movie made for the sheer enjoyment of her fans.

The result is pure pumpkin, though fans of squeaky-clean, helium-voiced Hilary Duff might fall under its sickly sweet spell.

This year's one-zillionth mean-girl movie, and that's not the only thing here that's played out.

The only thing missing is the pumpkin that turns into a coach. That's OK, because Duff turns into a turkey way before midnight.

Besides adolescent girls who either want to be Hilary Duff or want to slobber over Chad Michael Murray, the story offers nothing new to an already beaten-to-death teen genre.

A Cinderella Story definitely is for the younger film crowd. It's unabashedly simplistic and formulaic, made to highlight the charms of (Hilary) Duff.
