Cinderella ★★½

It’s nowhere near as bad as people say it is but still not a great film by any stretch, at least in my opinion. It has its heart in the right place, a nice cast and all that jazz, but it just feels so cheap to look at and the singing is so off, except by Idina Menzel, she sings very well, Billy Porter too, I only wish he’d sung more.

The sets especially look really tacky and bad, clearly modern buildings mocked up to look vintage. The cheesy factor is there and it’s self-aware but it still doesn’t really land the way it should, so many better versions of this Cinderella story, I actually really like the Brandy and Whitney Houston film.

I did like the boy in it though, he was gorgeous, I’ve seen him in a couple of movies and he’s great.
