5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Movie - About Time it Was on DVD! 18 Nov 2004
By Skywalker - Published on
As an avid reader of fairy tales and a collector of Cinderella and Cinderella spin-off movies, I must say this one has won its place as my all-time favorite. Matthew Broderick and Jennifer Beals make the perfect on-screen couple, and Jean Stapleton is absolutely hilarious as a sort of "countrified" fairy godmother. This movie goes beyond a childhood tale and provides entertainment that everyone can enjoy, regardless of age. It's about time this wonderful movie was put on DVD. If you like this one, you might try some of the other Fairy Tale Theatre movies, as they all incorporate humorous twists to traditional fairy tales. I especially enjoyed watching The Dancing Princesses, but what can I say, I still enjoy Cinderella the best. Also, if you enjoy Matthew Broderick's performance, you might like seeing him in Ladyhawke, where he puts in an absolutely hilarious performance as a pickpocket named Mouse. Jean Stapleton also plays in Fairy Tale Theatre's Jack and the Beanstalk as the giant's wife. Her performance in that movie is almost as good as her performance in Cinderella, and the movie is well worth watching. And finally, if you enjoy humorous versions of fairy tales, I recommend another video: Into the Woods. It is a blending of fairy tales in a two-part stage play, but the Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood scenes are hilarious.

5.0 out of 5 stars FAERIE TALE THEATRE AT ITS VERY BEST!!! 30 Oct 2004
By Edward Parry - Published on
I must agree with the other reviewer that this is one of the best Faerie Tale Theatre presentations. Having been an admirer of these wonderful films for some years, I recently bought the whole series and this is the first one that I revisited. As always the production values are of a high standard and the whole thing has been put together with such affection that it simply can't miss. Jennifer Beals is excellent as Cinderella, giving the character real bite, while Jean Stapleton is quite simply outstanding as the Fairy Godmother. In fact the whole cast is fabulous. I would recommend this title to anyone without reservation! It's great having this charming series on dvd at last - not before time!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars FAERIE TALE THEATRE at it's best! 22 Oct 2004
By Byron Kolln - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
FAERIE TALE THEATRE's imaginative and beautiful retelling of CINDERELLA is one of the best in the entire series. With Jennifer Beals leading the exceptional cast in the title role, it makes for magical entertainment.

Cinderella (Jennifer Beals) leads a life of drudgery and unhappiness at the hands of her wicked stepmother (Eve Arden) and her stepsisters Arlene and Bertha (Jane Alden and Edie McClurg). When the dashing Prince Henry (Matthew Broderick) invites all the eligible maidens in the kingdom to the Autumn Ball, Cinderella naturally wishes to go too. Too bad she's dressed in rags and doesn't have a coach. But she does have a Fairy Godmother (Jean Stapleton) who'll see that Cinderella's every dream comes true...

With a romantic musical score and fine performances all around, CINDERELLA comes to vivid life in this superb FAERIE TALE THEATRE installment. Highly-recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Faerie Tale Theatre: Cinderella 11 Feb 2004
By Clob Lane - Published on
One of the most romantic episodes in the excellent Faerie Tale Theatre series, this one is the classic rags-to-riches story of Cinderella. Jennifer Beals beautifully portrays the role of Cinderella, and Matthew Broderick makes a delightfully witty Prince Henry. The appearances of Jean Stapleton as the fairy godmother and Eve Arden as the wicked stepmother are superb. The costumes, sets and music are truly divine in this wonderful faerie tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the Best! 4 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Watching the Faerie Tale Theater (FTT) series was probably one of best childhood memories I have. It brought to life all those magical stories I'd heard as a child in a collage of music, imagery and unforgettable characters. It tickles me whenever I think of how some very prominent actors today had their humble beginnings in this much loved series.
Anyone who has seen "Cinderella" would have loved it and rightfully so. I mean who can resist the humourous antics of Matthew Broderick as the Prince and the gorgeous gowns worn by the much taller Cinderella, played by Jennifer Beals. Despite the lack of fancy computer effects, this honest and simple portrayal of one of the world's best loved fairy tales still shines with its own special charm. Indeed those were the days when we had quality programming. I pity the generation of children who've missed out on this special series and have instead been subject to Pokemon and Teletubbies. They'll never experience the joy and wonderment that fairy tales bring to childhood.
I'd recommend this to anyone. Hey, I'm 21 and I still love it!
