Another Cinderella Story, starring Selena Gomez and Andrew Seely, is about a girl named Mary who is orphaned and must work for her mother's boss, who is an egocentric star of the past. She loses her MP3 player one day on the dance floor and guess who finds it? Of course, her prince charming. But he's a celebrity looking for his perfect dance partner. What is going to happen? Watch and find out.

This story was really disappointing. It seemed to be copying almost everything that happened in A Cinderella Story starring Hilary Duff. And even then, A Cinderella Story is 10 times better than Another Cinderella Story. Another Cinderella Story doesn't really have much of a plot. Instead of it being like the many Cinderella remakes before it, it doesn't end when the girl gets the prince. No. The girl runs away from the prince as her dreams are crushed so it's the prince's job to help save her dreams.

The writers for this movie should have really worked harder. I find that the girl is much more vulnerable than you'd expect. Insecure even. The prince actually hurts her, but she has to do the work to get him back. Does the prince apologize? Not a chance.

This movie could have used some work. It reminds me of movies like Camp Rock that lack any substance to them. This movie was just not what I expected it to be.
