Cinderella 2000 ★★ 1978 (R)

Softcore musical version of the classic fairy tale. It's the year 2047 and sex is outlawed, except by computer. Strains of Sugarman's score, including “Doin' Without” and “We All Need Love,” set the stage for Erhardt's Cinderella to meet her Prince Charming at that conventional single prince romance venue, a sex orgy. Trouble is, it wasn't a shoe Cinderella lost before she fled, and the charming one must interface, as it were, with the local pretenders to the throne in order to find his lost princess. Touching. 86m/C VHS, DVD . Catharine Erhardt, Jay B. Larson, Vaughn Armstrong; D: Al Adamson; M: Sparky Sugarman.
