A Cinderella Story: Starstruck
I love having family movie nights with my family and it is even sweeter when I get to do fun activities or enjoy yummy treats. Recently we got to check out Warner Bros. Entertainment’s A Cinderella Story: Starstruck. It had us singing and dancing in our seats!
A Cinderella Story: Starstruck
Finley Tremaine, a small-town farm girl, longs to spread her wings and soar as an aspiring performer. When a Hollywood film crew arrives in her sleepy town, she is determined to land a role in the production and capture the attention of handsome lead actor Jackson Stone. Unfortunately, a botched audition forces her to change course. Now, disguised as cowboy “Huck,” Finley finally gets her big break. But can she keep the charade a secret from everyone, including her evil stepmother and devious step-siblings?
This is the sixth installment in the A Cinderella Story movie series. Other titles include A Cinderella Story (Hilary Duff), Another Cinderella Story (Selena Gomez), A Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song (Lucy Hale) A Cinderella Story: If the Shoe Fits (Sofia Carson), and A Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish (Laura Marano). Michelle Johnston (Nickelodeon’s Blurt) returns as writer and director of A Cinderella Story: Starstruck, after writing A Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish and directing the last 2 installments of the franchise. The veteran filmmaker also choreographed the first four films and served as a producer on the past three. Dylan Sellers of Limelight (Palm Springs, The Starling, The Giver, St. Vincent), keeper of the A Cinderella Story franchise, is back for his sixth turn as producer. Trygge Toven (Captain Marvel, Avengers: Infinity War, Trolls) and Toko Nagata (Shaft, The Predator, Pitch Perfect 3) are the music supervisors. Production services were provided by Front Street Pictures Inc.

A Cinderella Story: Starstruck Movie Review
A Cinderella Story: Starstruck is a delightful tale that is family-friendly and perfect for tweens! Entertaining and full of catchy tunes, this installment will charm viewers. As someone that has watched all the others, this one had me laughing and smiling throughout. Our modern-day Cinderella, Finley, played by Bailee Madison, does an amazing job in this role. The chemistry between Finley and her love interest, Jackson Stone, played by Michael Evans Behling, is charming. Filled with positive messages about being true to yourself and knowing where you come from. I also loved that this film helps tweens see that it is okay to take chances even if there is a risk of failure.
I loved that this film had a few twists from the traditional versions. For example, this installment does not feature two stepsisters. Instead, it has step-siblings. I think this is fantastic and is certainly something that modern-day families can relate to.
One thing that I feel I should warn you of is it has suggestive material and some mild language. As with any movie, that you watch with your families, I would suggest previewing it to make sure you’re comfortable with the material.
