YMMV: Cinderella III: A Twist in Time
  • Fashion-Victim Villain: Played with when Drizella messes with the Fairy Godmother's wand by changing her clothing. She gives herself giant jewelry, big hair and a giant dress, everything in clashing colors.
  • Memetic Mutation: The scene in which Charming jumps off a balcony to escape his dad has become quite the favorite among gif makers.
  • Moral Event Horizon: She may or may not have already crossed the MEH by that point (see the YMMV page for the original classic for her earliest possible MEH), but Lady Tremaine definitely cements it in this film when she poofs Cinderella in a twisted pumpkin carriage with Lucifer as its human driver, and attempts to get Lucifer to kill Cinderella. Especially heinous because up until that point she was satisfied with just making Cinderella's life a living hell. She also has Anastasia posing as Cinderella to fool the prince. If anyone doesn't know, this is rape by deception... and for worse, she tries to use one of her own flesh and blood daughters for such shit, and right when Anastasia is becoming more and more sympathetic!
  • Narm Charm: Lady Tremaine chanting, "Bibbidi, bobbidi, boo!" to kick off the time-reversing spell. And then the spell not firing, causing her to cast an odd look at the wand and give it a few irritated flicks. You can practically hear her thinking "What's wrong with this thing?".
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: They actually made Anastasia and Cinderella's husband Prince Charming a lot more interesting. Not to mention the King, to some degree. Especially when he tells Anastasia about his own wife, and how they loved each other even though she was an...unconventional queen.
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: Fans generally agree that the third film is a big improvement over the second.
  • Spoiled by the Format: Prince Charming rescues Cinderella from being sent far away and are on their way to their wedding... only there's twenty minutes left in the movie.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: The first three minutes of the movie, in which Cinderella recounts her rags-to-riches life to the viewers before she, Prince Charming, the mice and the Fairy Godmother sing about how "Perfectly Perfect" things have been since the wedding.
    • Considering the amount of Lampshade Hanging in III, that may have been a deliberate effect to contrast the rest of the movie.
