This Little Miggy Stayed Home: Cinder-Really?

Friday, February 09, 2007


What the frig is this? Cinderella Three? A Twist in Time?? OK, forget the fact that Cinderella 3 means there's a Cinderella 2 . . . why can't they can't just leave well enough alone? Like Azucar I'm committing a little faux pas here by ragging on a movie that I haven't actually seen, but this is more about the idea than the actual movie. Why oh why can't we just leave a cherished childhood treasure like Cinderella alone?

How is it that some (presumably) middle aged executive type dudes sat around a board room and said, "You know, I think there are some serious holes in this Cinderella story. . . " and suddenly without warning, I'm watching commercials, not for a first but for a second sequel. Here's what I was able to glean from the commercial about this totally awesome plot . . . apparently the wicked step mother puts the prince under a spell (how convenient) and he forgets who Cinderella is . . . and she has to prove that (get ready) "love is more powerful than magic." I'm sure this was the obvious direction Cinderella was headed in the minds of millions, but somehow I missed that one.

Of course we all know why crap-o-la like this gets made . . . starts with an "M" and rhymes with Honey. This movie represents all that is wrong with corporate America. I'm done.

    I'm not sure you have kids...but I have four girls and they could not be more excited about seeing Cinderella 3. There is nothing wrong with having new movies for them to remember and cherish. It's good for them to think there is more after "happily ever after". The trailer for this movie actually looks pretty good so I might even watch. I'm all for the original, but new can also be good too.
