Goofs

When Cinderella and her fairy godmother are in the pumpkin going to the ball at the end of "Impossible/It's Possible," watch Whitney Houston's mouth. There's one point where she's singing and her jaw is moving as if there is vibrato in the note, but if you listen to the note, it's a straight tone. See more »

What's not to like about this Disney-fied movie?
16 December 2002 | by bigkahones51See all my reviews

What's not to like about this lively, romantic movie? It's fun for both kids and adults, it has some areas everyone can appreciate. Just relax and enjoy it, it IS a fairy tale. Adults can appreciate the 'politically correct' social overtones if they will just 'lighten up' (the adults I mean). The music is modernized, yet still done wonderfully. It's also refreshing to see actors from other genres perform believably here. All in all, a beautiful escape for a short while then back to reality. So sweet and vaguely Wizard-of-Oz-like set appearance. But it is a good movie that does what it intends.
