Cinderella never had it this bad. In "A Cinderella Story" - a twisted update of the classic fairy tale - high school senior Sam Montgomery (Hilary Duff) lives at the beck and call of her self-obsessed step-mother Fiona (Jennifer Coolidge) and her wicked step-sisters, who treat her more like a servant than a member of the family.
With her sights set on attending Princeton University, Sam finds her less-than-sparkling social life take a turn for the better when she meets her prince charming online. But when her anonymous cyber soul mate turns out to be her high school's uber-popular quarterback Austin Ames (Chad Michael Murray), Sam makes a mad dash back to reality, leaving her cell phone behind just before the clock strikes midnight.
Fearing rejection if her secret is revealed, Sam dodges Austin's efforts to discover the identity of his princess. Will Sam let fear hold her back, or will she find the courage to be herself and claim the life she's always wanted?
Her chance at "happily ever after" depends on it.
What the critics are saying:"Besides adolescent girls who either want to be Hilary Duff or want to slobber over Chad Michael Murray, the story offers nothing new to an already beaten-to-death teen genre."- Kit Bowen, Hollywood.com"The movie strains to bend the fairy tale to accommodate another coarse high school comedy of air-headed teenage vixens ganging up on a meek little angel."- Stephen Holden, New York Times"Mean Girls it's not; a plastic butter knife has more edge. But sometimes it's nice to know your kids won't cut their fingers."- Ty Burr, Boston Globe
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
