A hilarious adaptation of this classic fairy tale
Throw out your fairy-tale ideas of a Cinderella with dainty glass slippers and hideous stepsisters – this hilarious adaptation has a new twist! In an English village in 1342, Cinderella, a plain looking girl with big feet, has to compete with her two mean-spirited, shallow but stunningly gorgeous stepsisters for the hand of the the local prince. The prince however, is unassuming and down to earth, with no interest in shallow or mean-spirited women. In this version, Cinderella has the help of her faithful feline companion, Tom, in addition to her lovable but vision-impaired Fairy Godmother, who can’t quite get the magic wand right in any instance.
Cinderella finally learns that magic isn’t the answer to her problems. Courage, kindness and self-confidence trump superficial beauty and an expensive wardrobe. From Tom’s slapstick shenanigans to Lady Lotta Bonbon’s cat allergies to cupcakes in the face at the ball, everyone laughs their way through the valuable lessons learned – even the hateful stepsisters see that a kind heart is what emanates true beauty. A comic delight for all ages!
