* CinderellaPlot: Mary Santiago is an aspiring dancer adopted by a woman named Dominique to do her and her daughter's housework. The Prince is a famous musician named Joey Parker, moving back to the city with his best friend. They meet at a MasqueradeBall, and Mary loses her Zune, which Joey retrieves and uses to find her. The plot continues after he discovers who Mary is, as the stepfamily continue to conspire against her and ruin her new relationship and dancing aspirations.

Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: Holy carp, Dominique. She is an AbusiveParent and a complete JerkAss, and she has absolutely no redeeming qualities whatsoever. It's a wonder how she managed to get away with her treatment of Mary before the events of the film.


* FairytaleMotifs: Mary is in CinderellaCircumstances with her as Cinderella, Dominique as the WickedStepmother, Britt and Bree as the stepsisters, and Joey as PrinceCharming. Tami is the FairyGodmother. She has her family help clean up Mary's house and provides her with a dress for the ball. Tami's vehicle that she drives Mary to the ball in is orange and resembles a pumpkin, aka the pumpkin carriage.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Dominique says she will never work with a certain man because he has a "serious case of the grab-hands". Later, she repeats this description for a woman she refuses to work with.
** The SeparatedByTheWall scene is rather sensual, as is their slow dance at the school.
*** The fact that Joey’s actor is 25 and cast opposite of 15-year-old Selena Gomez, who’d could pass for 13, makes it even worse.
** When Joey sets up a booth to find his "Cinderella" figure, [[EvenTheGuysWantHim a few boys]] [[HoYay get in the line]], too. The Funk drives them off, saying, "You are ''so'' not his dream girl!"
** A video reveals that Joey is anywhere from four to ten years older than Mary, who is still in high school.
*** Maybe Mary skipped a few grades and Joey took a few (or nine) years off of school for his work. It would explain a few things.
** The NotWhatItLooksLike scene. Ok you can not blame Mary for thinking Joey was about to have a romantic moment with his ex Natalia.
** Dominique says to Joey. "Let's do it." She means a duet, but the look on his face shows he was thinking otherwise.
