One of the best and classic movie ever. People must watch this movie because Whitney Houston and Brandy is in it. Parents, I definitely recommend this.

Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo!

I would like to dedicate this review of Cinderella to a very special someone named Zeke. Even though Zeke says that Disney animated films suck, I think he secretly likes them, but he's too much of a machoman to admit it.

Cinderella is one of the most celebrated of all the Disney classics. This film has enchanted movie-goers for generations with its spellbinding story, charming music and endearing characters.

This beloved fairy tale becomes pure "magic" as the beautiful Cinderella shares her dreams of romance and a better life with the lovable mice Gus and Jaq.

There you go, Zeke. I know you're just dying to see Cinderella for yourself. Don't be shy. You just might be pleasantly surprised by how much you actually enjoy it.

I watched Cinderella when I was a little kid and loved it. I took my daughter to watch it on a special matinee session and she also enjoyed it very much. As an adult enjoyed watching it again. It was no longer the magic of my childhood, but a cute story, besides Disney's fantastic production. I just don't understand why this movie would upset people so much they would turn its romantic naivete into a political battle... And since the plot is so well-known, I cannot understand why someone who dislikes the story would watch it... Anyway, I highly recommend this for mothers to watch with their daughters.

It is obvious that Disney made this into a multi-racial tale in order to attract the largest audience. The studio may have succeeded with that, but not much else. And as for the music of Richard Rodgers, the only worthwhile tunes are the ones that were resurrected from previous musicals. Disappointing.

"Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo!"

Yeah. Yeah. I know full-well that the story of Cinderella was, pretty much, just an empty-headed, little fairy tale about wishful thinking, and such - But, all the same, I found that there was definitely some really peculiar problems with this tale (as a whole) that prevented me, as an adult, from giving it more than an average rating of 2.5 stars.

I mean, not only was Prince Charming just another pretty face with no personality to speak of at all, and his father, the king, a blustering idiot of the highest order - But I also seriously thought that the Cinderella character was clearly missing some of her marbles and even teetering on the edge of insanity by having real conversations with a bunch of mice and actually fashioning clothes for them.

Another thing that caused me to doubt Cinderella as being a rational-thinking person was the fact that she allowed herself to be locked up in a tower and treated like pure garbage by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters. Like, wasn't there such things as "Human Rights" back in those days? Surely Cinderella could've found a reasonable out from having to endure the torment from these decidedly wretched people.

I also found it rather odd that this animated film's most entertaining moments had little at all to do with Cinderella and more to do with the slapstick shenanigans that went on between the non-human characters, like Lucifer, the cat, and the colony of smartly dressed mice.

A classic that never grows old. The animation is impeccable and so is the story... even if you don't believe someone can fall in love in one night. Turns out this cartoon saved Disney from bankruptcy, since their previous features - including Bambi - failed at the box office at first.

Hey! I'm your fella, Cinderella!

Believe it, or not, I was ("once-upon-a-time"), very much, madly in love with the Cinderella character in this excellent, animated motion picture.

Yep. That's right. When I was just a very small tyke the sweet, singing Cinderella was one of my many-many movie-girlfriends.

In my very biased opinion, Cinderella (the movie) is, without question, one of Disney Studios' most enchanting and spellbinding, animated fairy tales of all.

With grace and charm, Cinderella beautifully spins this traditional story, delightfully adding some comic embellishments to the overall storyline, which include a couple of very cute, little mice named Gus and Jaq who befriend our poor, put-upon heroine.

Cinderella is a timeless classic that, once it weaves its magic, is sure to live on in your heart forever.... Tra-la-la-la-la.

"A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're fast asleep.
In dreams you will lose your heartaches.
Whatever you wish for, you keep.
Have faith in your dreams, and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling through.
No matter how your heart is grieving,
If you keep on believing,
The dreams that you wish will come true."

"Silence! Time for vicious practical jokes. Perhaps we can put it to better use. Now let me see... There's the large carpet in the main hall; clean it! And the WINDOWS-upstairs and down-wash them! Oh yes, and the tapestries and the draperies-"
