  Once upon a time, there was a cheesy vehicle for tween-princess-turned-teen-brand Hilary Duff. It was called "A Cinderella Story," inelegantly based on the fairy tale, and updated to a strip-malled Southern California world of mediocrity. And any thinking person with a modicum of taste who saw "A Cinderella Story" was cursed to waste 97 precious minutes of life, and lived unhappily ever after — or at least until wiping away the memory of Ms. Duff's pallid, whiny excuse for acting, an inane script and pointless direction. Duff is sweet college-bound high-school senior Sam Montgomery. Sam's kindly, diner-owning father was a widower who remarried and then died in an accident. Alas, Sam's stepmother Fiona (an abrasive Jennifer Coolidge) is a harridan with two dumb, venal daughters. Fiona mistreats Sam, belittling the girl and forcing her to work long hours at the diner. Although the popular kids at school insult Sam, a secret admirer (Chad Michael Murray) text-messages his love for her via cell phone. She believes that bliss awaits her if she can meet her prince at the Halloween dance. The obviousness, lack of genuine humor and hollow imitation of high-school romance make Duff rival Lindsay Lohan's silly, comparably themed "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" seem like cause for an American Film Institute lifetime tribute.
