FAV comfort movie

After the ball is more than just another Cinderella movie. Kate is not the Cinderella archetype, she is a career woman with high goals for herself and is obviously disappointed when she is unable to meet those goals. It contains plenty of jokes for the adults in the audience. While the movie is cheesy at times, overall it’s a cute watch and never fails to make me feel better.
