Today, I was babysitting a kid for the first time. She asked if she could watch a movie, so I downloaded Cinderella for her. An hour later, this 10-year-old girl was lecturing me about unrealistic standards of beauty and abusive relationships, and how I suck for liking the movie. FML

It's not so much comprehension, if she knows enough to give a lecture on it at 10, she's had that lecture drilled into her head at some point, likely by a family member's rants in the topic.

Think of the positives- at least she's been raised with a good set of morals! It's refreshing to hear of a little girl who is aware of such unrealistic social standards.

No 33, dont be unrealistic. And hello guys! The mice and birds talk to her, and a guy she meets once decides to find her and marry her immediately. thats some realistic stuff right there.

@ 15 In the Cinder Maid stories (the ones that are very close to Cinderella), in one version the prince -- after the Cinder Maid escapes from the first two parties-- has the last step coated in honey, so when she steps in it while running (she forgot the deadline because she was having so much fun) her shoe falls off.

#33 : Actually, there's a huge controversy about whether the shoes are made of fur (which would make sense) or glass : in French, "verre" (glass) and "vair" (grey squirrel fur, basically) sound the same. Charles Perrault used the word "glass", while Honoré de Balzac rather chose "fur".

Wait, did the kid ask for Cinderella, or did you just pick it at random? In either case, that kid's right about the unrealistic standards of beauty. Now if she'll just learn some tact.

I'm not gonna lie. I like all of the Disney movies, and was raised on them growing up. All of them are wonderful except Alice in Wonderland. That movie is horrifying.

I dont know why theyre getting disliked for their opinion. besides, i agree. doesnt anyone remember the scene in Alice in Wonderland where the walrus and the carpenter lure the baby oysters away from their mother and eat them?

"Little oysters, little oysters!
But answer there came none
And this was scarcely odd because
They'd been eaten
Every one"

Alice in Wonderland has been my favorite since before I could comprehend movies. I'm sorry you don't like it, I wish everyone liked it. It's like watching a dream.
