I joined Mommy Bear Media‘s blogger program approximately 2 months ago and was super excited to get TWO great movies this month for $16!
Buggy loves musicals and is a fan of the Disney Cinderella movie so when I found Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella featuring Whitney Houston and Brandy, I was ecstatic! I remember watching this version when it first came out and I loved the music so I could only hope that the kids would enjoy it as well!
Buddy (4 years) wasn’t really into it as I expected. I think it was just too slow paced for him (although he does enjoy other musicals). Buggy (6 years) loved it! In fact, she watched the whole thing (88 minutes) in one sitting and has requested to watch it several times since then!
From Mommy Bear Media:
A prince, a pumpkin, a glass slipper… history’s most enduring fairy tale returns with a thoroughly modern twist! Beautifully produced and featuring an all-star cast, “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella” shimmers to life in the most spectacular production ever of the classic musical, including three additional Rodgers & Hammerstein songs exclusive to this special Disney presentation!
Pop sensation Brandy (TV’s Moesha) stars as the beautiful Cinderella, who suffers the torment of her wicked stepmother (Bernadette Peters) and spoiled stepsisters. Cinderella dreams of the impossible: going to the ball and dancing with the prince. Her impossible dream is realized when her fairy godmother (Whitney Houston) teaches her that, with positive thinking and belief in yourself, “impossible things happen every day!”
Also starring Jason Alexander and Whoopi Goldberg, Disney’s sparkling version of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella promises to be an instant classic. Now you can relive the magic anytime you wish!
This will definitely be a family favorite in our house!
In school, I hated reading. Despised it. But I remember having to read The Outsiders and I loved it! I have been hooked ever since and I cannot tell you why. I am not sure what it is about this movie that makes me enjoy it so much, but I really do!
I am sure the very nice to look at male cast (featuring Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillon, Tom Cruise, Emilio Estevez, C. Thomas Howell, Rob Lowe and Ralph Macchio) doesn’t hurt anything!
When two poor greasers, Johnny, and Ponyboy are assaulted by a vicious gang, the socs, and Johnny kills one of the attackers, tension begins to mount between the two rival gangs, setting off a turbulent chain of events.
For a movie as old as myself, it really is on my list of favorite movies!
