** Cinderella has received criticism for acting subservient to her stepfamily, and depending on others to help her achieve her dreams, as well as praise for maintaining faith in the face of abuse, and taking more steps towards achieving those dreams than Disney/{{Snow White| and the Seven Dwarfs}} and [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Aurora]] did.

** Cinderella has received both criticism for depending on others to help her achieve her dreams, and praise for taking more steps towards achieving those dreams than Disney/{{Snow White| and the Seven Dwarfs}} and [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Aurora]] did.

* EndingFatigue: Cinderella being locked in her room and the mice having to rescue her...ironically it is partially a reference to the Grimm's version (with the animals having to expose the stepmother's tricks)..though it is undeniably just an excuse to give the mice even more screen-time. According to Literature/TheMouseUnderGlass, to make the scene even weirder, it actually came from an attempt to make Cinderella more proactive. Walt actually hired a writer named Maurice Rapf in order to help the film come off as "progressive." He suggested a scene in which one day, "they're ordering her around and she throws the stuff back at them. She revolts, so they lock her up in the attic." This idea was clearly used for the ending.

Added DiffLines:

--> '''Christian Dior''': Now that Cinderella’s fairy godmother no longer exists, the couturier ''must'' be the magician.

* GirlShowGhetto: The Franchise/DisneyPrincess franchise pushed several Disney movies into this, but ''Cinderella'' might have fallen the most deeply. The Platinum Edition DVD has a girlier set of games than any other movie in the collection, and the ''Cinderella'' Trilogy Blu-Ray/DVD Boxset comes packaged in a jewelry box. In the UK, ''Cinderella'' [=DVDs=] actually got pulled out of the Disney Vault for a few weeks of 2011, so families anticipating the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton could share them with their daughters.

* MisBlamed: Fans of the {{Grimmifi|cation}}ed version of ''Cinderella'' tend to accuse Disney of toning the story down by skipping over the gory scenes. Actually, the version Disney chose to adapt the original story by Creator/CharlesPerrault which didn't have any gore to begin with, and the Grimm's version is based off of Perrault's. In reality, the original Cinderella is most likely the Chinese version of the story, Yeh-Shen, and that is debated.
* MoralEventHorizon:
** Lady Tremaine starts to cross it when she locks Cinderella in her room, knowing full well that she's the girl the prince loves. What pushes her definitively over the line is the moment when she trips the Grand Duke and breaks the slipper out of sheer spite. ''Then'' she does nothing more than smirk at the Grand Duke's panic and Cinderella's dashed hopes -- until Cinderella pulls out the other glass slipper. [[KarmaHoudini She does not suffer any consequences for this in the film itself]], although [[FridgeHorror she DID directly interfere with a royal decree by the King, and we've seen what he's capable of when it comes to perceived betrayal.]] (Notice that her last appearance in the film is the OhCrap face she makes at Cinderella's trump card.)
** In the live-action adaptation, Lady Tremaine crosses it, in the scene where she rips Cinderella's dress. Not only does that happen, she even helps her daughters in doing so. To top it off, the dress happens to be Cinderella's deceased mother's, and Lady Tremaine even goes so far as to ''[[YourMom insult her fashion sense]]''. It's telling that at the end of the film, [[FriendToAllLivingThings Cinderella]] is the ''only'' one to forgive her for everything she had done to her.

* BrokenBase: The movie itself has become this in recent years. Some still hold it up as a true Disney classic and recognise it as the studio's return to form after the troubling World War II years. Others find it bland and unmemorable - it has notably less of a cult base than ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'', ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' or ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp''.

* AccidentalAesop: If somebody abuses you, don't run away or fight back, just be kind and wait for magic help.
** More like TruthInTelevision. Children may not know it, but back in Cinderella's day women had no rights or resources if they were trapped in abusive homes. Some abuse victims can attest to Cinderella's preference to not live on the street even if it means taking the abuse.

* UnnecessaryMakeover: As noted above, some people prefer the pink dress Cinderella was going to wear to the ball - especially as it was her mother's. In a meta sense, fans feel this way about Cinderella getting depicted with blonde hair and a blue dress in the Disney Princess merchandise - rather than her strawberry blonde hair and white dress in the film.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Some viewers misunderstand that this is adapted from the Charles Perrault version of the tale, not the Brothers Grimm version. Namely Disney did not drop the toe and heel cutting, as that's not in Perrault's version. Likewise the FairyGodmother does not appear in the Grimm version, and there is a three-day ball there.
