Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Prince Cinders, a short animated twist on the classic Cinderella story is silly and fun. There are brief moments of slight cartoonish violence -- slapping, falling, screaming -- and some scenes with characters being served martinis in a disco, but on the whole, this is a creatively entertaining re-imagining of a classic fairy tale that might get kids starting to think about gender roles.

Sexual Content

Minor pratfalls: characters play tug of war with shirts and pants, fall down, scream after seeing a giant monkey skate by on top of a tiny car, get slapped.

Social Behavior

This twist on the classic Cinderella story promotes beauty within over external appearance.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

At a party, drinks are served in martini glasses, but are knocked over and broken before anyone drinks from them. The wicked stepbrothers are seen drinking what could be unmarked beer cans, and they often belch when finished with the cans.
