Delightful Disney Magic!

A fun comedy that combines both the magic of Disney pre-21st century with a 21st century sense of humor as Snowwhite comes to modern day New York! It really becomes a riot when the Prince (James Marsden as Edward), a queen's sniveling henchman Nathaniel (Timothy Spall), a chipmunk named Pip and the Queen herself all follow her to there.

Amy Adams was fantastic as the wide eyed Giselle. She was just so endearing and the embodiment of believable innocence. We have a wonderfully wicked stepmother (Susan Sarandon) who can't take that her step son will marry a girl prettier than her and become King so she banishes Giselle to that dark place where no one lives happily ever after. That's right New York City where Giselle meets Patrick Dempsey, the world-weary yet still caring dad who is the p...

Amy Adams makes this bearable.

In Enchanted, Disney is content with shoveling us the same old s*** and calling it sugar.

I was hoping this would be a biting satire of the Mouse House's past fables but instead they played it safe and only increased their self-awareness: "Yes we know how silly the musical numbers were in those old cartoons, so let's ratchet up the camp level a little for this film!" Except for a bizarrely crude cleaning-song parody involving NYC's vermin (amusing in concept and maybe initially but like all the movie's good parts, the fun factor was quick and fleeting), I can't think of anything that makes this different from all the other cookie-cutter sludge the company churns out every year.

Disney really made it seem like they were going to town on all the soggy cliches clogging up their extensi...

The Title Fits - Very Enchanting Film

God Bless Amy Adams. The Oscar-nominated (for Supporting Actress, for Junebug) actress never, ever strikes a false note in this Disney fairy tale, about a maiden named Giselle who is thrust into the real world - literally - by an evil queen, bent on keeping Giselle from marrying her son.

The film starts off in the animated world of Andalasia, where the poor but beautiful Giselle - along with her animal friends, a la Cinderella, sings about the prince she hopes to one day marry. Nearby, Prince Edward (played by James Marsden) is out hunting with his companion Nathaniel (Timothy Spall, in a hilarious performance), when circumstances occur that allow Edward and Giselle to meet for the first time. In true fairy tale fashion, the two instantly fall in love, and plan to wed - the very next d...

Fun to Watch, Witty

I was enchanted by this film in so many levels because it exceeded my expectations. I thought I was in for a good fairy tale movie but I never thought it would be as bona fide, energetic, and imaginative as this one. Not only does it work as a fantasy-comedy, it also works as a satire of classic Disney animated films. It seems like everyone is having fun in their roles, which makes it that much more enjoyable because they are able to wink at the camera without ever looking stupid. Amy Adams is born for this role and I knew she was destined to be great ever since I saw her touching performance in "Junebug." I haven't seen her in many films because she's just starting to branch out but she proves to be a versatile actress. I also enjoyed Susan Sarandon's brief but villainous performance, as...

Review - Enchanted (2007)

In the fairytale land of Andalasia, Giselle (Amy Adams) and Prince Edward (James Marsden) fell in love at first sight and immediately decided to get married. But when the even Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) sends Giselle to the magical land of New York City, Prince Edward must find her and deliver true love's kiss in "Enchanted."

Finally, after almost a decade, Disney proves that dreams do come true and reminds us that they can still make good movies. Using both animation and live-action, the story parodies everything Disney has been from the beginning. Giselle is every Disney princess and more rolled into one, and Adams delivers a very pure and wonderful performance.

The music also reminds one of the good old days when Disney actually had songs in its movies. The music also puts a ...

Enchanted until the last ten minutes

I had seen the preview of this movie like five times, and it made me very interested on seeing it myself. Now I have, I can say it was a pleasant surprise. Never did liked musicals, singing nor dancing but seeing Amy Adams do it, I guess she made me think twice. She was like Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella combined into one character. I'm definitely spellbinded after hearing her sing, she was genuine and true. And there is this sort of innocence and purity in her that made me believed she really came out of a storybook. To me this was really the key in making her performance work. And James Marsden's character, certainly a delight to watch. Made me laugh when he calls everybody peasants, and his character’s stupidity was unexpected but very well delivered. And yes what is a goo...

Adams is absolutely perfect

The film is chock full of references to past Disney animated films. Giselle herself is an amalgam of Snow White, Belle and Ariel (if only because of Adam’s long red hair). But when the plot seems so focused on the throwbacks, especially SNOW WHITE, the whole thing becomes a bit tired and clichéd. The film’s finale, therefore, doesn’t come off as particularly exciting. We all know exactly how the story is going to end, even if there are a few 21st century twists along the way.

The real reason for the film’s success, and where most of its charm lies, is in Amy Adams’s live action performance. She is a Disney princess brought to life, and there’s nothing more to say about it. Skipping and singing through the early parts of the film, in a nearly unwieldy dress no less, she appears to have ...
