Goofs

When the stepmother tosses the pail of lentils into the fireplace, the pail contains barely enough lentils to cover the bottom. When Cinderella and the birds have placed them back inside, the pail is full within a couple of inches of the top. And when Cinderella later presents the pail to her stepmother, it is again not very full. See more »

Quotes

Jack: [singing] And you scramble down, and you look below at the world you left, and the things you know. The roof, the house, and your mother at the door.The roof, the house, and the world you'd never thought to explore. And you think of all of the things you'd seen. And you wish that you could live in-between. And you're back again, only different than before.

I hate musicals after seeing this
31 December 2014 | by laughinggiraffe0See all my reviews

I didn't know this was a musical. I just saw the Disney logo and the movie poster looked interesting so decided to give it a shot ... Wow. The first 20 mins they sing the same melody over and over. I guess I don't like musicals, so I'm trying to be fair, but this movie's still awful. I'd have a different opinion if the lyrics were clever or funny. But they're not. They're just boring, 99% of the time pointing out the obvious, over and over. Worse, the plot is just a rehash of well known fairy tales. Nothing fresh or original until the toward the end, which is actually the worst part of the movie. Really. It was like the writer just pulled random events from a hat and decided to use them for a plot. And worst of all, the few characters that are interesting are killed off, leaving weak secondary characters that the viewer doesn't care about, but that doesn't stop them from singing unfortunately.
