Honestly, Isn't as good as Cinderella 2

This movie I don't really like but it is fun to watch, also the violence is too much for a 3-5 year old.

This title has:

Too much violence
age 4+

Not as good as the first two

I do not recommend it. It does not have the same magic as the original. The plot is boring, the comedy is bland and the characters are not very interesting. The beginning of the climax is too scary.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (18 ):

This funny, likable twist on the original Cinderella imagines what would happen if the magical slipper hadn't fit Cinderella, and creates a heroine far easier to root for in the process. Cinderella III moves along at a fast pace and has some genuinely funny bits.

The movie presents a more well-rounded Prince who exhibits unflagging graciousness to the clumsy Anastasia and true affection for his father. But the best thing about this version is Cinderella's perseverance in getting the Prince to fall in love with the real Cinderella. Girls 4 to 9 will probably be captivated by this story, as well as the DVD's special features that include a dancing game and music video.
