Although her acting is at normal and acceptable level, but when she performs, this film seems to be perfect. Young Mary 11 Years old Mary: Nicole Munoz. The problem lies with the younger set - my 7 year old wanted to see it because it was Selena Gomez, and my older daughter was watching it. Selena Gomez is simply divine -- she has mastered all the dancing in this movie in just three weeks! Details are never pasty or absolutely unimpressive, but general object definition is wanting and the image never quite captures that sought-after film-like texturing. At the birthday of Mary's twin sisters he found his mystery girl. The evil stepsisters and the friend are just plain out evil! Close-ups of faces reveal intricate details, from small scars to tiny freckles.
This is, at best, a mixed message. Different people have different opinions. Light ambience is handled effectively and naturally, whether chirping birds or the din of a busy diner or high school hallway. The film is kinda predictable but that's to be expected when it's based upon Cinderella. Girls -- and some boys -- fawn all over teen singer Joey Parker; one girl kisses him in the school hallway, another asks him if he wants to make out, and others rub up against him and embarrass themselves to get his attention. I watch this movie often because I love dancing and Drew Seeley is a good singer. But I guess that wasn't the point of the movie, so I won't complain too much.
I thought they were pulling relatively innocent although mean tricks on Mary, the good ultimately prevailed. She is such a talented actress and watching the movie is worth it just to see her steal all the scenes she is in. This film is almost squeaky clean and does not go against my beliefs. Fueling the excitement among the female student body is the announcement that Joey will be hosting a dance competition to choose a new cast member for an upcoming music video. Finally Mary comes forward, and the two practice their dance moves together while they do Mary's chores -- until a jealous ex-girlfriend and the twins do their best to separate them before the big dance competition. I must warn you this review is heavy with spoilers, but not really that much about the ending or anything that'll ruin your watching it.
Overall, I found this movie entertaining. Clothing textures are natural, and the image captures all of the little fine details around the diner, in Sam's bedroom, and throughout the high school. There must be a reason why the film industry puts these movies straight to video, and I ask myself why I bothered watching the film. Debate Team dude: Stuart Cowan. The acting was great and there was chemistry between the two main characters.
Yet for some reason when Selena Gomez entered in a rather poofed out, concealing dress all eyes were on here as if everyone thought she looked beautiful even though her body was completely covered, her outfit was not form fitting and they supposedly could not see enough of her face for even her step sisters to recognize her. He definitely can't match the importance of the role. What could possibly go wrong? At a dance, Joey pairs with a costumed Mary and falls in love with her, admiring her dance moves as much as her sweet personality. She has another secret: she's begun a secret-identity text and e-mail relationship with a mystery man at her school, another boy with dreams of attending Princeton. This is a nice enough movie to watch and enjoy with girl friends, where you can try and figure out with character represents which element from the actual Cinderella story. In the end, Natalia redeemed herself and showed she really did have a heart.
A very different approach to the meek and kind Cinderella we all know. And everyone played their parts very well! This is barely shown on camera, and he quickly moves away so that she falls onto the floor. Bacne Spot Announcer: Rick Gomez. Joey is a Prince Charming and dreamy new-guy-in-school looking for a girl to love. Sadly, they didn't and I was left disappointed.
It is a real shame because the girl in it Gomez is actually a very sweet girl and probably not the worst actress. The movie utlimately is not for kids because Selena age 15 at the time looks so young and yet dances so provocatively. It was a cute movie with a good messege and a more wordly view. On the plus side, black levels are fairly good, but flesh tones gravitate towards a slightly warm push. So, whenever I feel bored to watch other films or to do something, I always watch this film because I totally love it.
This Cinderella might get her happily ever after with a modern twist. On the other hand, popular music plays with vigor and strength. She looks nothing like the expected Madonna figure. Why did I like this film? Moon-Eyed Cheerleader Sad Cheerleader : Laura Konechny. Dominique sabotages her school audition, ensuring that Mary will remain in her service. I did not feel the clothing worn by any of the actors was questionable at all.

She's fine with a certain amount of charm that gives the movie a chance. Compared to , the dance moves are just slightly sexier, and there's a little kissing between teens. I was cringing from beginning to end, although it ended for me soon after it started. A girl dances up against Joey inappropriately. There is also a bedroom scene in which he leans over Selena on the bed as though he is going to do something to her although Selena manages to negate the advance. Overall, do not look for depth in this movie.
