Cinderella II: Dreams Come True


Cinderella II: Dreams Come True Review

"The magic didn't end at midnight!" the promotional materials for Cinderella II tell us. But I'm here to tell you that not only did the magic definitely end at midnight, it ended at midnight 52 years ago, when the original Cinderella went home in her pumpkin.

This pathetic sequel, only 65 minutes long until the credits roll, tells three sad vignettes about the now-blissfully married Cinderella's life. Among them: Cinderella flounts tradition and invites (gasp!) commoners to the royal ball. The fairy godmother turns one of the mice into a person. And ugly stepsister Anastasia finds love in the arms of a portly baker.

The stories are trite. The songs are forgettable. And worst of all, the animation is atrocious. The film looks like it was put together on a dare, as a joke, or both.

Which is the truth doesn't matter, the verdict is the same: Do not see this film, and don't tell your kids it even exists.
