Time Out says

From the first tumescent AAaaooooo of the chorus and plig plig of the harp, this is bang-on-course Disney animation. Once you get past the 'storybook' framing and the information that 'a dream is a wish the heart makes' - eat lead, Sigmund - it is played for laughs all the way. Furry creature value is high, and there is an extra-wicked stepmother who is the stuff of infant nightmares. The prince is as wooden as Letraset, and the real moral dramas, battles between good and evil, social conditioning, hygiene, procreation etc. take place among poor Cinders' allies, the mice, and the complacently vicious cat Lucifer. The set pieces, all transformation scenes of some kind, will probably be familiar, the mouse voices rising to operatic heights as they sweatshop together a ball gown in under three minutes. As usual, everything is slightly glossy, soppy and hearty, yet not a string is left untwanged.
