A Cinderella Story

A_cinderella_story This war-horse fairytale gets dragged out again, this time for Hillary Duff (“Agent Cody Banks”) to pout around as a Los Angeles high school student persecuted by her cruel step-mom (Jennifer Coolidge) and jealous step-sisters, while she prances closer to the romantic flame of jock king Austin (Chad Michael Murphy). Unbearably packed with every ditzy cliché of teen girl fantasy, “A Cinderella Story” wallows in the saccharine sweetness of an insipid fantasy narrative that goes nowhere. The movie will wash over adolescent female audiences who don’t know any better like melted Brie on 110-degree asphalt, but for the rest of us it’s a grueling waste of time.

Rated PG. 97 mins. (D-) (Zero Stars)
