High school senior Sam Montgomery is treated more like a servant than a member of the family by her step-mother and step-sisters. With her sights set on attending Princeton, Sam finds her less-than-sparkling social life wonderfully complicated when she meets her prince charming online.
Romantic Comedy - You've seen this story a million times in various versions. This
one is simple, sweet, fun and a little goofy. The characters are
played a little over the top, but the story seems realistic and
believable. I would say you get exactly what you expect.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 224 moviegoer opinions. Children and females of all ages loved "A Cinderella Story." Over half rated it either "Fantastic" or "Excellent," which is very high. Only a relatively small percentage rated it "Good," which is a little on the low side, but certainly not bad.
As for the guys, there weren't very many but what few there were enjoyed it very much rating it nearly as high as the ladies.
A clean, cute love story that's truly for the whole family. I recommend "A Cinderella Story."
High school senior Sam
Montgomery (HILARY DUFF) lives at the beck and call of her self-obsessed
step-mother Fiona (JENNIFER COOLIDGE) and her sinfully wicked step-sisters, who
treat her more like a servant than a member of the family.
With her sights set on attending Princeton, Sam finds her less-than-sparkling
social life wonderfully complicated when she meets her prince charming online.
But when her anonymous cyber soul mate turns out to be her high school's über-popular
quarterback Austin Ames (CHAD MICHAEL MURRAY), Sam makes a mad dash back to
reality, leaving her cell phone behind just before the clock strikes midnight.
Fearing rejection if her secret is revealed, Sam dodges Austin's efforts to
discover the identity of his princess. Will Sam let fear hold her back, or will
she find the courage to be herself and claim the life she's always wanted? Her
chance at happily ever after depends on it.
