Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that After the Ball is an uninspired romcom modeled after the Cinderella fairy tale. It features a young designer who goes undercover to save her father's fashion empire from her wicked stepmother and stepsisters. The stepsisters and stepmother scheme and manipulate throughout the film, while Kate and company also deceive to save the day. There is some profanity: "damn," "asses," "sugar t-ts," "hell." It's entertaining for its low-key predictability, but there are better movies that impart more interesting, truer messages about the fashion industry and true love.
