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

A Cinderella Story doesn't break any new ground, but it's a well-acted little breeze of a film -- perfect if you're a 12-year-old girl.

The premise -- scripted by Leigh Dunlap with a reported uncredited polish by Callie Khouri -- is largely preposterous, but Rosman embraces rather than evades those obstacles.

Duff plays off her Lizzie Maguire persona as a cute but unassuming girl, but also conveys soulfulness and earnest longing.

This reviewer's young daughter and her friend - both anticipating third grade - decided they enjoyed the film because the mushy stuff was kept to a minimum.

The efforts to find Cinderella and struggles with Fiona take longer than they should, but there is an old-fashioned happily ever after ending for everyone who deserves one.

In typical Lizzie spirit, it's harmless, it's sweet, it's corny, it's fun and it all comes out impossibly right.

Does justice to its well-known source material while putting a pleasant spin on it. It's better than one may be lead to expect, which is perhaps the best compliment of all.

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.

Charles Perrault must be spinning in his grave.

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.

Rather than anything original or humorous or, heaven forbid, romantic developing from this fable, we get only tired clichés and worn-out stereotypes.

A benign, whimsical semblance of its namesake fairy tale.
