I agree with your review. Truthfully, I have not seen the full film, but the clips I have seen are atrocious. Just my thoughts and not negative to others different thoughts

This is obviously an effort to bring an beloved oldie back to life yet again and out-Disney Disney, using (terrible) contemporary songs and plastic, generic pop singers, poorly-written dialog, unfunny in-jokes, blazing colors, staccato editing, and elaborate, au courant dance numbers, changing the plot lines to stunningly corrupt the original story in an effort to be "hip."

I, too, had to abandoned this before I finished watching it.

Exerable film.

Stick with the Branagh version from a few years back.

I started out kind of cringing, but un-clenched and ended up getting a real kick out of it. Still, not sure I'll ever be inclined to watch it again. It is clearly intended to be absurdly anachronistic. I do have some recollection of the heavy auto tune though.

I saw Leslie Anne Warren in the musical "110 In the Shade" many (many) years ago. She was charming and outstanding. She still is. Also Julie Andrews in "Cinderella" when it was first broadcast (my television was set up in my covered wagon) and much later at a special showing at the Academy of Television Artists (or whatever they call it). That is my favorite, although Brandy brought much beauty and charm to her version as well. They all have their good points, But it sounds like from the above posts, that this new one has nothing going for it, not even Billy Porter. Really? Not even Billy Porter? I'll wait a while to view it.

This is my fav version of the story.Lesley is very sweet and charming.Good songs.
Agreed! my all time favorite Rogers and Hammerstein musical, and one of my favorite versions of Cinderella. everything a filmed fairy tale adaption should be.
