Happily N'Ever After is to Pixar what color-by-numbers is to traditional Disney animation. The press notes boast that the total production time was only 15 months, ''unheard of for a first-class computer animated movie.'' Maybe there's a reason why that's unheard-of. This thrown-together, dumpy-looking misfire finds Cinderella's wicked stepma (Sigourney Weaver) taking over Fairy Tale Land. Sounds subversive, but Happily is stuffed with stock characters — the vain prince, the critter sidekicks — who adamantly stay stock.
