Time Out says

A musical version of Cinderella that looked redundant before even leaving the starting-blocks. Despite all the critical plaudits (a misplaced patriotism?), it's top heavy, over-lavishly mounted, full of unmemorable songs in the Disney vein by Richard and Robert Sherman, and moves at a snail's pace. In a coasting cast, only Annette Crosbie as the harassed Fairy Godmother manages to alleviate the gloom.

What on earth is the TimeOut reviewer talking about?!! This is an amazing film. The music is not inappropriate at all. Moreover, it is rather poignant and catchy. Kind of a mix between Andrew Lloyd Weber and Gilbert & Sullivan, mood setting tunes and lyrics. Also, how would one move faster through a Cinderella story without finishing the it in 15 minutes?!! TimeOut review is nonsense. It moves at a good pace. Great film for lovers of period romances.

This film is so good,Its magnificently staged and the musical arrangements and vocal performances are a delight. I first watched this film at the cinema as a small child and never forgot a couple of the melodies,rediscovering the soundtrack and DVD as an adult was a revelation. The acting and subtle comic performances make it hard to pigeon hole the film as a childrens piece,moor people should know about this often ignored gem.

One has to wonder what ails the people who did not like this film. The story is traditional, an excellent cast, the movie magnificent and the music very, very good. A marvellous presentation of an oft repeated fairytale.

This is a relly good movie. I've watched it since i was tiny and it is a really feel good film. It does not deserve the bad reviews it got. I have watched it so much i know all the words. Richard Chamberlain is wonderfulas the Prince Charming, couldn't imagine anyone else playing the Prince. Eveyone has really good voices, and the music is so good! Definately one of my favourite films of all time!!!

I love this film, my mum introduced me to it when I was little and it's the ultimate feel good film - I am practically word perfect I've watched it so often and all my friends who I've introduced to it have loved it as well! When ever I'm feeling down I put this on and I know that I will without fail feel better when it ends. What more can you ask from a film.

This film is highly under-rated, and has received a lot of snide comments from people who look down their noses at good old-fashioned Broadway style performances and music. I loved the film, and have shown it to my daughter and their friends, and they have compared it favorably to other Cinderella stories, including "Ever After" and "Enchanted." I love many of the songs...Gemma Craven is a Julie Andrews-esque musical delight, and Richard Chamberlain's singing and musical acting were a revelation. The comic supporting actors...especially Edith Evans, Julian Orchard, and Michael Hordern as the King...were hysterically funny! True, it unfolds slowly, but with affection and skill.
