This movie is a wonderful retelling of the original Disney animated version of Cinderella. We have our Cinderella, Mary who played by the delightful Selena Gomez. Then we have the prince, Joey played by the talented Andrew Seeley. The stepmother Domonique was brilliantly played by Jane Lynch. The rest of this ensemble cast which included the stepsisters (Katherine Isabelle and Emily Perkins) Tami (Jessica Parker) Dustin (Marcus Paulk) and Natalia (Nicole La Placa) all injected their characters with a bid of an edge. This movie was aimed at the 9-13 age range and hit it's target. Was it predictable, yes but the cast was brilliant and brought an old tale into today's world. The characters were lovable,except the obvious Britt Bree and Natalia, who balanced the fairytale with their nasty attitudes and antics. I loved the dance theme and the dancing was amazing. It won't win an academy award, but that was not it's goal. The goal was entertainment pure and simple.
