  • Details
In Disney's Emmy-winning update of Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic fairy tale, Cinderella (Brandy) believes in the impossible, and not even a wicked stepmother and stepsisters can keep her from her prince. Whitney Houston as the fairy godmother heads an all-star cast that includes Paolo Montalban, Bernadette Peters, Whoopi Goldberg and Jason Alexander. Three additional Richard Rodgers songs not included in the original score add to the magic.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie, as in some other versions, establishes that Cinderella's father has died. She lives with her stepmother and two stepsisters, and it's clear that they have relegated her to the role of servant. They frequently mock her and demand that she wait on them hand-and-foot.

Sexual Content

Some kissing.


Occasional pushing and shoving. A man on a ladder almost falls off due to the inadvertent recklessness of other characters, but the scene is played for slapstick laughs.


No profanity, but some name-calling, such as "stupid" and "lazy."

Social Behavior

With the exception of the conniving stepmother and the obnoxious two stepsisters, characters in this movie are generally portrayed as good and caring. In the end, the good-hearted person triumphs.
