Ever After

Fair retelling of the classic Cinderella story with a different edge to it. Drew Barrymore plays Cinderella, an orphaned girl who ends up the servant of her evil stepmother. One day by chance, she meets the Prince of France who just happens to be looking for a bride. Cinderella dresses up as a noble and becomes good friends with the prince ---- how long can she keep this escapade up? Barrymore makes an adequate Cinderella, but Angelica Huston makes the perfect evil stepmother. Ever After certainly doesnít improve on the fairy tale, but offers it a unique perspective. Much of the script still needed a few improvements and the movie isnít breathtaking, magical or magnificent, but still manages to be somewhat entertaining.
