Substitute a cell phone for a glass slipper, a convertible for a two-door pumpkin, and an L.A. suburb for a kingdom far, far away and what do you get? A happily-ever-laughter twist on the Cinderella tale!
Sam (Hilary Duff) scrubs floors at a diner, copes with her wicked stepmother and stepsisters, and dreams of going to Princeton (the perfect spot for a would-be princess to find a prince). Buy maybe she has a Prince Charming already: her anonymous e-mail buddy (Chad Michael Murray), who arranges to meet her at the Halloween dance, Sam panics when the mystery man turns out to be the coolest guy on campus. Can he love a girl not part of the in crowd? Can fairy tales come true? Only if Sam stands up for herself and turns her dreams into reality.
