Amazon.ca

Take away the Fairy Godmother, and what have you got left from the Cinderella fable? The story of a girl for whom a bad stroke of luck is no match for her internal strength and purity of heart. Drew Barrymore plays Cinderella's alleged inspiration, Danielle, in this romantic drama that purports to tell the "facts" behind the Grimm brothers' story. One of three daughters of a man (Jeroen Krabbé) who dies and leaves her fate in the hands of a conniving stepmother (Anjelica Huston), Danielle is cast into the lowly role of a servant. Meanwhile, her sisters are evaluated as possible mates for a French prince (Dougray Scott), but he's far more intrigued with Danielle's intelligence and beauty--not to mention her way with a sword and fist. Directed by Andy Tennant (who directed Barrymore in TV's The Amy Fisher Story), Ever After has that rare ability to win the heart and mind of a viewer simply by being committed to its own innocence, particularly where Barrymore's luminous performance is concerned. A contemporary take on an old, virtually forgotten Hollywood convention--the costume adventure with middling artistic ambition but real audience appeal--Ever After is a surprisingly delightful film. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I've always enjoyed the Cinderella story - and Hollywood seems to as well with the amount of Cinderella movies they put out! All of them are fun to watch though, I've enjoyed in in its own way.
This version is a different twist on the story. There is no fairy godmother (though Leonardo DaVinci kinda helps out)! The basic story is the same.. raggedy Cinderella (aka Danielle in this movie, played by Drew Barrymore) falls for the handsome prince (Dougray Scott from Mission Impossible 2). The cool thing about Cinderella this time, she's no meek little servant! While she does end up having to do plenty of chores for the evil step-mother, she kicks butt with a sword and throws a mean punch!
The costumes and location of this movie were beautiful. I especially loved Cinderella's costume she wore at the climactic ball - it was truly breathtaking. I would have preferred they did the traditional glass slipper, her shoes were... not attractive to me. The rest of the gown was gorgeous though!! The acting was pretty good, Angelica Houston was amazing as the evil stepmother!
Overall, it's a decent movie and worth seeing. It stays true to the magic of Cinderella and her charming prince It's a must-see!

This was, simply put, one of the most predictable, boring, and poorly acted movies that I have ever seen. Drew Barrymore cannot do an English accent, and beleive me, that made her performance suffer. I can't understand the amount of adults who like this film. It is mind-numbingly simple. As I watched it, I managed to predict every single event before it happened, and that is no exaggeration. I found myself saying, "No, please don't say what I think you're going to, please, it's too predictable." The entire movie was like this for me, nothing was surprising, and there was no charm in it. I am sick to death of the typical ending to tripe such as this, wherein the bad guy goes from a rich upper-class member to a near-slave, doing hard labor who always ends up being pushed into a pile of something disgusting. The only reason that I give this movie three stars is becuase I can admit that it is suitable for children. Only children. It is very cutesy, and easy on the mind. You really don't have to think when you watch this movie. It provides a fairly good role model in Danielle, becuase she is an honest person, and a strong young woman. It is truly a good film for CHILDREN. I sound so cynical in my review because I still don't know why people over the age of 12 think that this movie is so great. If you want a more enjoyable film to watch with your children, get "The Princess Bride." All of my adult friends, male and female alike, still talk about how much they loved that movie, and their parents do as well. That film has better acting, actual charm, and dry wit. The parts that appeal to children are easily bearable, one could say, enjoyable. I don't mean to sound as acid as I do in my review of "Ever After", but I really think that it's time America grew up. This is a film for the children, not for everyone.

Format: DVD
This is cinderella with a twist: a lead character with serious Feminist Attitude. Forget about saving the poor little girl with the wicked stepmother. This lady can save herself, thank you very much; and if that stepmother would only get out of her hair, she'd be just fine in her own house. The prince is just an afterthought. Icing on the cake. An unnecessary luxury. Whatever. The film is a fantasy and has to be seen that way. The characters are all one-dimensional and none change save the prince who comes off his high-horse to wed the girl. But it's not a satisfying change, not realistically done. But heh, it's a fantasy. Worth a watch, but there are plenty of cinderella-derived stories that are more enjoyable. Like Bridget Jones's Diary, or Pride and Prejudice.

At first when I saw they were making this movie I was intrigued, but also skeptical, about this new twist on Perrault's Cinderella, this time starring Drew Barrymore. Well, Cinderella is my second favourite fairy tale, so I should probably force myself to sit through it for that reason alone. Barrymore's also not that bad of an actress, not the best, but hey not the worst. Then I notice Anjelica Huston is in it also, and hey I really like her so why not go and see it?
Well eventually I completely forgot about the movie, never did get around to seeing it in theatres. Then while surfing through the channels on my TV I see a commercial for the movie being shown on some station and I'm intrigued all over again. So I tune in to see the movie, and wow, I was not expecting this movie to be as great as it was.
This is not Disney's version of Cinderella, not by a long shot, so if that's what you're looking for in your tale of Cinderella I suggest you search elsewhere. Instead of the pixie dust and fairy tails you get the legend of Cinderella, the supposedly true story which the fairy tales were later based off of. The movie opens with the brothers Grimm arriving at a castle in France invited there by an again woman who wishes to tell them the true story of Cinderella without the magical pumpkins or a faery godmother. I'll spare you all the details of the film which every other reviewer has already gone through. I will however tell you that the performance is average from Drew Barrymore, no fireworks with her acting here, just the way she usually is, which isn't that bad but she's not going to be winning an Oscar anytime soon I promise you that.
