Delightfully Silly and Enjoyable
26 December 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Beverly Hills, the teenager Mary (Selena Gomez) is the stepdaughter, actually the maid, of the egocentric and decadent pop star Dominique Blatt (Jane Lynch) and is frequently humiliated by her two sisters Bree (Katharine Isabelle) and Britt (Emily Perkins). Mary's mother was a dancer of Dominique and when she died, Mary stayed with Dominique. When the pop-star Joey Parker (Andrew Seeley) returns to Los Angeles to select a pair for his next video-clip in a dance competition, he becomes the sensation and all the girls in town expect to win. However, Mary sneaks to a masquerade party with her best friend Tami (Jessica Parker Kennedy) and Joey dances a tango with Mary, who is wearing mask and he does not recognize her, and he has a crush on her. Near midnight, Mary leaves the party in a hurry, but she drops her mp3 player on the floor. Without any other clue of her partner in the dance, Joey Parker uses the device to seek out the girl. But Dominique, Bree and Mary will do anything to keep Mary apart from her prince charming.

"Another Cinderella Story" is silly, predictable and there is a great gap of age between Selena Gomez and Andrew Seeley. However the update of the Cinderella fairytale is also delightful, with enjoyable dances and choreographies and the chemistry between Selena Gomez and Andrew Seeley is amazing. Selena Gomez really impresses with her beauty and charm and it is a pleasure to see her dancing. The "sisters" Katharine Isabelle and Emily Perkins perform a totally different role from the cult "Ginger Snaps" franchise. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Outro Conto da Nova Cinderela" ("Another Tale of the New Cinderella")
