For despite drawing a few easy laughs from Jennifer Coolidge’s pink and pampered stepmother, this fails to use the comic potential inherent in a storyline that has kept panto audiences in stitches for decades. The ugly sisters are stupid and vain in the least amusing way imaginable, and Duff’s underdog character could use some sharper put-downs. Nevertheless, her scrubbed-up everygirl Sam is a likeable presence, and the machinations of her makeover are slick enough to please MTV-weaned tots dreaming of a Prince Charming straight out of ‘Dawson’s Creek’. The rest of us, however, might wish he’d stayed there.

wow. this movie was just so good. I had to tell my girlfirend about it right away. It was seriously such a great film. I loved IT!!
This film is great. Its just so great that a popular guy ends up with a girl who is not popular. Would never happen in real life, but honestly, most films wouldnt. Georgous Hillary Duff for the guys and Handsom Chad Micheal Murray for the gals. Brilliant soundtrack. 10 out of 10
