A CIN­DERELLA STORY (2004) GO!, 9PM, PG, FAM­ILY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

The slip­per of yore is re­placed by a mo­bile phone as the Cin­derella fairy­tale is trans­planted to mod­ern­day Cal­i­for­nia, where dorky, hard-work­ing teen Sa­man­tha (Hi­lary Duff) falls for a boy on­line. Lit­tle does she re­alise the ob­ject of her af­fec­tion is the school hunk (Chad Michael Mur­ray). Its best mo­ments usu­ally in­volve Jennifer Coolidge (Sti­fler’s mum from Amer­i­canPie) as Sa­man­tha’s evil, Bo­tox-ad­dicted step­mother. Pleas­antly done, but lack­ing some spe­cial fairy dust to set it apart from other teen-ori­ented tales. ★★★
