Cinderella (1950)

When Cinderella’s cruel stepmother prevents her from attending the Royal Ball, she gets some unexpected help from the lovable mice Gus and Jaq, and from her Fairy Godmother. (IMDb)

The fun and cozy animation and the memorable secondary characters (those adorable mice!) are two definite standouts here, while the fairy tale at hand is refreshingly non-romantic: Cinderella and the prince actually develop hardly any relationship at all, and the mice’s exploits in helping “Cinderelly” before and after the ball make up the bulk of the story. Although it does fall back to a typical lover’s happy ending, the film’s endearingly unique underdog plot line throughout overshadows it.

6.9/10
