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.
