DJ Cinderella

I watched this with my kids on Netflix because I wanted to see how this movie was for myself. I think it is excellent for kids and even me as an adult I liked it.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (5):

A number of exaggerated performances bordering on ridiculous, far-fetched coincidences, and what to many may be gratingly awful music diminish any charm this well-intended film had in mind. DJ Cinderella is colorful and lively and has a very sympathetic character in the leading role, but that's simply not enough to captivate audiences of any discernment. Still, it's harmless, and kids who like simple and predictable or who relish seeing mustache-twirling villains get the comeuppance they deserve may enjoy it.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
