Audience Reviews for Ever After: A Cinderella Story

  • May 31, 2011
    Often lacks the plausibility and seriousness that the premise suggests but the chemistry between Barrymore and Scott just shines with an incredibly well written script. Ultimately it wins us over with it's unrelenting charm and wit. Where Disney's version relied on actual magic and animated impossibilities, the magic in this film comes from it's fun, emotion and uplifting qualities. In the end it's a harmless romance that works through n' through despite the fact that many feel it's merely a re-telling. A well made chick-flick.

    I loved this movie when I was younger. It's a great Cinderella story, full of wonder, magic, and romance. The costumes and settings are beautiful. The story is good, and so is the acting. I recommend it.

    Ever After is a wonderful classic that includes Drew Barrymore as the smart and free-thinking Danielle and Angelica Huston as her wicked stepmother. She also has two step-sisters, one of whom is really nasty just like her step-mother and the other who is quite kind and who even helps Danielle in certain situations. The fairy tale spun into a more reality based life story was done expertly and contains a few twists that will make you laugh. Dougray Scott plays the dashing love-torn Prince and the character of Leonardo DaVinci is inspiring. He plays the typical knowledgeable old man with a twist of humor.

    "You are the only mother I have ever known. Was there ever a time, even in its smallest measurement, that you loved me at all? - How can anyone love a pebble in their shoe?" Ok. 'Ever After' is a film that I thought I would not be seeing anytime here. On my lifetime that is. But I did. And I actually liked it a bit. Everyone who knows something about good stories in books or cinema, should've heard about Cinderella and her glass shoe. The Disney animation is a classic that will always be remembered but I can't actually recall seeing a film about it with real actors in it. Anyways, I'm not gonna go into the story that much because all of you know how it will all end. The only interesting question here is that how much tears will it jerk out of you? And will the shoe fit? Oh, that one you should know... 'Ever After' has a lot of talent in it. Anjelica Huston and Drew Barrymore, most known of her marriage with the great Tom Green (or was it something else..?), are well known names. I especially enoyed watching Huston work. Perfect in her role as the stepmother. Barrymore is cute as hell in her role and delivers a nice performance as well. What the hell was Leonardo da Vinci doing in the movie and why was he speaking english as if it was his mother tongue? Shouldn't he be in Italy painting The Last Supper or Mona Lisa or inventing stuff? I really don't like it when filmmakers try to combine different persons, actual or fictive, and try to create something nifty. But otherwise, 'Ever After' is a nice movie. Emphasis on the word "nice". The movie will deliver laughter and tears. For me only laughter but I'm sure that those of you who haven't had enough of romance will surely cry their eyes out at the end. Why 3 stars then, you may ask? Here's the reason. Like I said, it was nice and I really liked the King. "Off... With his head..." (The King half asleep)
