Critic Reviews for Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella

  • There's no question, however, about who owns this show: Brandy is magnificently sweet and ethereal, proving she can step away from her contempo hustle and the "Moesha" image, giving a bravura performance as a wistful girl living off dreams.

  • As Cinderella, the surprisingly self-assured Brandy is an island of subtlety in a sea of broad. A magical sort of charisma enfolds her, and her voice is more than up to the task.

  • Often charming and sometimes ordinary, this is a cobbled-together ''Cinderella'' for the moment, not the ages.

  • Brandy isn't the only reason this show is less than captivating. The production falters between musical numbers. Spoken scenes drag on.

  • With a hefty lineup of live-action remakes coming soon, perhaps it's wise to pay close attention to the magic that still lingers from this 1997 masterpiece.

  • Wishes do come true, insists this new production of the timeless fairy tale. Okay, we wish Brandy could sing like Whitney Houston.

Audience Reviews for Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella

  • Sep 18, 2011
    Truth be told, I haven't seen some of the Cinderella adaptations, but at least I've seen three of them. The first was the Disney animated classic, the second was the 20th Century Fox motion picture Ever After that starred Drew Barrymore, and this one happens to be the third Cinderella adaptation that I have definitely seen from my childhood years on my videotape. If there is one positive word I have to sum this TV movie up, I say "amazing!" because I have seen that a lot of effort was put into it. The cast were exactly the right choices. Even Whoopi Goldberg, Jason Alexander, Bernadette Peters, and Victor Garber were so talented. Oh, and about Brandy. I'm not exactly a fan of her, but I think she was a very good singer and a neat actress for the part of Cinderella. Even her chemistry between her and the prince played by Paolo Montalban were well-characterized and well-developed. The songs were solid. "Impossible", "It's Possible", "In My Own Little Corner" and the rest of them were very unique. The story followed its potential except there were some aspects that would have been better to the plot. Cinderella is, with in my heart, one of The Wonderful World of Disney's greatest TV movie from the classic 90s and will always be recommended for fans of Cinderella. Why was this given a 5.7 rating is beyond me. 9.4/10

    Asian Prince and Black Cinderella? No offense, but Twofer Token Minority doesn't work

    Completely wonderful, broadcasting as a television movie other than theatrical release is a huge understatement for this movie. It has the most catchy, memorable songs, along with a star-studded cast of cogs that just mesh together beautifully.

    The dialogue was simplistic, the acting was cheesy and the special effects... weren't so special... But that's all part of the appeal. It's silly and entertaining. It's not nearly as polished as the original but this remake is still quite amusing. BTW, how can a white man and black woman spawn an asian child?
