Life is idyllic in the fairytale world where conflict is minimal and breaking into song solves every problem, but what happens when a princess from the fairy world gets magically transported into the real world? Enchanted begins in the animated fairytale world of Andalasia where Princess Giselle (Amy Adams) is destined to marry Prince Edward (James Marsden) and live happily ever after. Problem is, Edward's step-mother Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) doesn't want to give up the throne and will do anything to get Giselle out of Edward's life. Queen Narissa's solution is to push Giselle into a well that magically lands Giselle smack in the middle of the real world--the center of Time Square in New York City, to be exact. This launches the live-action portion of the film where Giselle immediately realizes that things are frighteningly different in this new world and that she is ill-prepared for the callous ways of the people who inhabit it. Giselle finds herself alone on a stormy night in the wrong end of town, but a chance encounter with Robert (Patrick Dempsey) and his princess-loving daughter Morgan (Rachel Covey) leads to a warm, safe place to spend the night and the beginnings of a complicated, yet compelling relationship. As Giselle begins to question the fairy-tale truths she's always inherently believed, Robert's outlook on life and love also begins to change significantly. Parallels to the classic Disney fairytales, Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty abound in the form of a King's and Queen's ball, small animals and rodents who clean house when called, the threat of poisoned apples, characters impulsively breaking into song, and the power of the kiss of true love and the absurd juxtaposition of fairytale idealism and stark reality is hilariously funny. Features music by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz of Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame fame, Wicked's Broadway Elpheba Idina Menzel as Nancy, and even a brief appearance by former Princess voice talent Judy Kuhn (Pocahontas). Enchanted is one of the best, most entertaining Disney films of the year. (Ages 6 and older with parental guidance due to some scary images and mild innuendo) --Tami Horiuchi
On the DVD
The Blu-ray edition of Enchanted is packed with special features including the exclusive-to-Blu-ray "D-Files," which highlight the multitude of references to other classic Disney films with an interactive trivia game that's fun for all ages. Much more engaging than your typical pop-up facts, this feature punctuates the action in the film with interactive questions: Which classic Disney film inspired the soap bubble? The coach scenes? What Disney song inspired the "Happy Working Song?" Which Disney films feature evil stepmothers? Correct answers earn viewers bonus interview footage with director Kevin Lima, songwriter Alan Menken, lyricist Stephen Schwarz, stars Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey, and a host of others as well as side by side comparisons of scenes from classic Disney movies and Enchanted. Other bonus features include a 17-minute exploration of the technical issues involved in the three biggest scenes in the movie; highlighting the challenges of combining multiple disciplines like CGI, live-action, casting animals and children, visual effects, and the choreography of a huge variety of dancers, skaters, and stilt-walkers in one film and, often, in a single scene. The animated, pop-up adventure "Pip's Predicament" illustrates Pip's behind-the-scenes role in leading the Prince out of Andalasia into New York and is sure to captivate young children. Two minutes of bloopers, six deleted scenes, and the Carrie Underwood music video "Ever After" round out the special features. --Tami Horiuchi
Disney Princesses on DVD
- Just a cute movie all around. Modern day parable
If you enjoy modern day fairy tales, and also enjoy movies filmed in New York City, then you will most likely love this movie. The star is a little dopey, but dopey in a cute way. She charms the proverbial single parent, father of a small child, and the rest is mystery. Good special effects. The counter person, at the store where I bought this said, "this is my daughters FAVORITE movie...she can watch it over and over again.." It was a good, unsolicited testimonial, and it turns out the kids is pretty much right. This movie has something that most people will find appealing. The only downside about the movie is Susan Sarandon's part of the "Evil witch". It seems forced, and almost like she's pandering to the kids. Other than that it's all "happily ever after". Some of the specific NYC scenes that people will enjoy are the "time portal" directly in Times Square, which any NY'er or tourist can connect with. Others include a funny scene where a homeless person steals her tiara, and bolts down the street. Funny stuff....more info
- Fun Flick
This item was shipped quickly. The movie itself is a fun movie and family friendly. There are a lot of "hidden" surprises in the movie and Disney has no problem poking fun at themselves....more info
Walt Disney did a terrific job making a movie that the whole family can watch and re-watch. This movie has a great plot, some great special effects, and a cast that works well together. This movie will keep the attention of a wide audience. Being on Blu-Ray only makes a good thing better. ...more info
- A modern happily ever after.
Enchanted starring Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey is a cute Disney flick for all ages. James Marsden and Susan Sarandon also star and steal the show. Adams's performance is a bit annoying but her angelic voice and adorable charisma is the perfect recipe to play a sweet, doe-eyed princess. Dempsey is pretty good in this as well, he's more than McDreamy guys! This movie is part animation and live action, I like the songs and ending. Give this charming fairytale a chance, enjoy!...more info
- Surprisingly Great
I did not go see this in theaters because, to be honest, I thought it looked ridiculous. Now that I have seen it, it was so entertaining! Hilarious with a good hearted plot, I enjoyed it from beginning to end. The singing voices are superb as well. I highly recommend for anyone who also has a light heart and enjoys romantic comedies. Love lives on!...more info
- A fun Movie
We all have those afternoons these movies are made for the time when we just want to leave the real world behind and enter that enchanted world of our Prince or Princess will come into our lives and make it all good... I have the real world everyday this movie was so fun to laugh and feel all warm and cozy all over... Try it.....more info
- Very Amusing
Think of Disney's "Enchanted" (2007) as part "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937) and part "Prince Charming" (2001), with a bit of "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" (1988) thrown in for good measure. But its real predecessor is Walt Disney's very first production "Alice's Wonderland" (1923). Contrary to popular belief Walt's first sustained character was neither Oswald the Rabbit nor Mickey Mouse. It was a six-year old real life girl named Alice. While working for an advertising agency in Kansas City Walt altered a concept from Max and Dave Fleischer's "Out of the Inkwell" series and mixed a live actress (Virginia Davis) with animation.
"Enchanted" is all about the juxtaposition of the real world with the animated world. Animated characters become their real life counterparts, and then turn back into pop-up book scenes. As in "Prince Charming", a storybook prince finds himself dealing with modern day Manhattan. But this time he is has come to this strange world voluntarily.
It seems that his stepmother (Susan Sarandon playing a high mileage version of Snow White's Evil Queen) has transported his future bride Giselle (Amy Adams) to the real world. Adams is quite simply amazing in this role. She has no trouble selling her character's wide-eyed innocence (this is literally true-just watch her eyes). Giselle works her magic on cynical divorce lawyer Robert (Patrick Dempsey) and his six- year-old daughter. Although the film has no weak scenes I found myself trying to hurry along the portions that did not feature Adams.
There are some relatively subtle sight gags; watch for the difficulties Giselle has maneuvering her huge Princess gown around the real world. Also watch for Adams' two musical numbers, "Happy Working Song" and "That's How You Know". These are absolutely priceless and compare favorably with the cinema's best musical moments.
"Enchanted" might have this decade's widest target audience as it has almost universal appeal. My only criticism is that the effects loaded climatic scene is not nearly as entertaining as the sequences that precede it.
Then again, what do I know? I'm only a child....more info
- A movie worth watching
A very good romantic comedy, Enchanted, brings to the screen the story of a soon-to-be-wed cartoon princess who magically gets sent to NYC by her betrothed's evil stepmother. Although the dashing prince sets forth to rescue his beloved, things get a bit complicated when the princess falls for an unsuspecting New Yorker about to ask his girlfriend in marriage...
Enchanted is a film about human relations, hope and second chances, but most importantly about trust, love, and inner strength.
Amy Adams (who is GORGEOUS!), Patrick Dempsey, Timothy Spall (from the Harry Potter movies!), James Marsden, Susan Sarandon, and the rest of the cast, have truly outdone themselves with their performances, which are outstanding to say the least! The film is simple enough, but does a great job of describing people's every day lives and the problems they face. It just goes to show that simplicity is often far better than complexity, when trying to present issues of a human nature.
The setting, the plot, the dialogues, the humor, and the music are all very good!
Though not a masterpiece, Enchanted is a movie definitely worth watching as it will surely provide for an evening's entertainment!
- The original is better
This is a parody of "The Sleeping Beauty", a classic that is now coming to Blu-ray. But unlike that wonderful, carefully planed classic which took the Disney studio almost a decade to develop, Enchanted lacks sincerity.
It pretends to put the fairy tale world upside down and teach a couple of things about "true love", but instead ends up reaffirming the fairy tale concepts, but without the class and elegance of the original. In fact, bad taste is all over the place: Almost-nudity, a joke involving faeces, talk about boys wanting "only one thing", easy jokes copied from Shrek and "Splash", a nauseating musical number in Central Park...
If you're still itching to know what Enchanted is all about, rent it before buying. And buy The Sleeping Beauty Blu-ray....more info
- Great Movie
I really enjoyed the acting in this movie, I was surprised that Patrick Dempsey was in a musical, Amy Adams was very good. I really enjoyed the music in the movie. I would really recommend watching this movie, it's very enjoyable....more info
- Same price as store
Gave this for a gift, it was the same price in the store I just did want to go to the store to get it, ordered it with several other gifts. Great movie!!!...more info
- waving the magic wand of realism!
Enchanted can be compared to someone with mild autism who is able to recover and discover the ability to think, feel and experience life on a much deeper and more meaningful level. Princess Giselle forced into the rough & tumble world of New York recovers her composure and opens her heart to discover that happily ever after is not a concept that all people adhere to and she finds ways to help Robert discover his own capability to believe in love and the power of good. A gentle self revelatory tale where two worlds colide and heaven is born all over again!...more info
The product was received timely and was in great condition. My children love the movie. We watch it,it seems ALL the time. Thanks...more info

- Fun movie!!
It's a Disney film with a good sense of self-deprecation and healthy dose of cynicism. The squirrel is funny and the CGI is well done. Yes, it is somewhat sappy, but I classify it as a good family film that everyone can enjoy more than once....more info

- Amy Adams brought me here, but it's a pleasant surprise all around
I thought Amy Adams deserved an Oscar nomination for this performance. Then again, I'm biased - though I ended up enjoying "Enchanted" quite a bit, what drove my initial interest was Adams' appearance. [If you want to know why, go rent Junebug.] She's excellent here as a Snow White-like 'Giselle'. It's also a treat to see strong-jawed beauty, Idina Menzel. True Broadway royalty, Ms. Menzel is both the original Maureen in Rent and the original Elphaba in 'Wicked'. If 'Wicked' does make it to the screen and Idina Menzel is not Elphaba, someone needs to go to jail.
Disney does a great job here at getting a two-level movie in the DNA of a Pixar's best work. It appeals to kids on one level, adults on another. We convinced a number of our friends to go after seeing it and realizing how well done it was....more info
- So cute!
This movie is so cute! Amy Adams is the perfect Cinderella/Sleeping Beauty & Patrick Dempsey as the emotionally repressed New Yorker. Susan Sarandon & James Marsden do an awesome job as supporting actors too. The special effects, which you can tell took much time in animation, catch your eye easily....more info
- Fantastic Movie Idea, Subpar Execution
I liked the idea of this movie, but I feel it just missed the mark. I love "fish out of water" movies and was hoping this would be a musical version of "Elf." At times it tried to be cute rather then funny, but came off as cheesy. That happens when you get the guy who directed "102 Dalmatians." Amy Adams was great and James Marsden was cast well, but Susan Sarandon was wasted and Patrick Dempsey forgetable. I will say, it is much better then "Cool World."
- Enchanting and Slightly Skewed
Enchanted is one of those movies - which like "The Princess Bride" can be enjoyed by children for the straight-forward story of fairy-tale characters cast into the real world, and by adults for the skewed sensibility and sly wit involved. The animated opening is a picture-perfect send-up of classic Disney movies involving a lovely heroine with a penchant for bursting into song as she is attended by helpful animals, a swashbuckling handsome prince and his wicked Queen stepmother, an adorably cute talking chipmunk, true loves' kiss, et cetera, et cetera.
It's a good-natured and affectionate send-up of the genre, and in the general gloom, doom and heavy-handed-message pictures which came out about the same time over the holiday season, it shown all the more brightly.
Dumped into a magic well by the wicked stepmother, Giselle (Amy Adams) - dressed in a hugely crinolined white dress that looks like Scarlett O'Hara's nightmare - emerges in the middle New York, followed closely by her Prince (James Marsden), his not-so-loyal henchman Nathaniel (Timothy Spall) and Pip the Chipmunk. Giselle finds refuge with a cynical divorce attorney Robert (Patrick Dempsey) and his naturally princess-adoring small daughter... although her penchant for making clothes out of draperies is at least as unsettling as being able to summon helpful animals to clean up their apartment. As it is the city, the animals that come and cheerfully set to work scrubbing, straightening and putting to rights are pigeons, rats and a bevy of roaches. About the only bigger show stopper than that is the sequence in Central Park when Giselle sings about knowing the one you love and manages to scoop in a chorus of grooms and their brides, street performers, construction workers into one grand set-piece.
Will she be rescued by her fairy-tale prince, the earnest and endearingly dorky Prince Edward, and find true love with him... or perhaps Robert might turn out to be her real-life prince. Will henchman Nathanial run out of clever disguises as he conspires to keep Giselle and Edward apart? Will Pip the Chipmunk ever be able to successfully mime a warning to Prince Edward... and finally, how did Susan Saranden manage to keep a straight face as the evil stepmother Queen Nerissa?
For the answers to all these questions, you will have to watch. I'm not going to give them away....more info
- Great movie. Fun for adults and kids.
This is a wonderful family movie because kids love it (mine range from 3-11 and all enjoy it) and there is plenty for grown-ups to laugh at also. It wouldn't make my list of best movies ever, but it is definitely worth watching. I'd stick to renting unless buying it as a gift like I did....more info
I didn't enjoy this movie, it was boring, and I had one laugh, at Susan as an old lady, but boring....more info
- I wasn't.
I wanted to like this movie. I like fairy tales and happily every after. And it had a few good moments, but overall this movie grated on my nerves. Watching it made me tense and edgy for reasons I can't quite explain. The chipmunk, of course, was the highlight of the movie - and that's saying quite a bit.
There were moments of dialogue where I did like the characters, but I spent most of the movie cringing - especially when it came to the prince. I just couldn't handle his character - it was so very, very bad. And it wasn't so much the acting (though that was over-the-top, perhaps by design) but the script and the costumes and everything. And perhaps he was supposed to be annoying. The wicked witch was better in person than she was animated, but still felt like a two-dimensional character. Some of the supporting cast were better (the little girl, for one) but it simply didn't make up for what felt like a real lack of chemistry between most of the characters.
And even though I expected the story to be somewhat predictable, there were zero twists and turns to liven it up. Absolutely nothing original or interesting once you got past the 'falling into the real world' bit (which, admittedly, was big, but you need something near the finale - besides a scene that reeks of political correctness).
For a really good fairy tale movie, check out The Princess Bride and give this one a miss.
- Another Disney Classic
I was told that this movie made fun of every other Disney movie ever made, so when I saw it, I expected to just see it once, for laughs. But it turned out to be a sheer delight to watch and is quickly becoming one of my favorite Disney movies.
The movie has great Disney-classic musical sequences mixed with Broadway dancing. Beautiful Amy Adams, the actress who plays Giselle, displays amazing acting and singing talent. Her expressive face was perfect for the part. Patrick Dempsey did a really good job portraying the cynical, but protective single father.
The only thing I would have excluded from this movie was the scene with Narissa at the end. It was unnecessary, since the rest of the story was wrapped up, but I think perhaps that scene is where people get the idea that it "makes fun" of all the other Disney movies. I still didn't find it sarcastic or satirical toward Disney--just unnecessary.
If you watch the movie and love the musical sequences as much as I did, I recommend you watch the Bonus Feature "Fantasy Comes to Life," where they show the some behind-the-scenes footage of three of the major songs. It's incredible to watch all of New York City's talent come together in one great Disney movie. ...more info
- Sweet romantic fairy tale
Enchanted is a sweet romantic yet somewhat realistic fairy tale. Great songs, good acting, interesting and funny story line. Little girls can enjoy it for the fairy tale part, and big girls can enjoy it for the tongue-in-cheek humor about Prince Charming and dreams coming true. A great all-around gift....more info
- Delightful Love Story!
This is a truly delightful love story that parodies Disney's Cinderella storyline. You have the capability to play through the entire movie or to select from 20 individual scene selections. There are also bonus features such as deleted scenes, bloopers, behind-the-scenes shots, and a Pip adventure sub-story.
The presentation begins, as a storybook opens, with cartoon characters. It changes quickly to humans. Evil Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) does not want her stepson to marry because she is afraid his marriage would mean the loss of her throne. Prince Edward is riding his beautiful white horse "Destiny" through the woods. His servant Nathaniel is with him. He is thinking about true love's kiss while he is out in the woods chasing trolls. Simultaneously, Giselle is in a cottage in the woods, daydreaming of true love's kiss and her prince. Edward hears Giselle singing from afar and becomes instantly enamoured. *sigh* He rescues Giselle as she falls from a tree after being chased up the tree by a mean troll (big troll too). They fall in love immediately and plan to marry the next day (without a pre-nup), but the Queen will have none of that!
On Giselle's wedding day, the Queen, disguised as an old hag, pushes Giselle into a magic well and Giselle comes out on the other side in Times Square, Manhattan, NYC. This sure ain't nuthin like Andalasia and she is totally out of her comfort zone. She is alone, afraid, and looking everywhere for Prince Edward, not realizing what has just happened to her. Giselle (Amy Adams) seems likie a real fruitcake when Robert (Patrick Dempsey) and his daughter Morgan spot her. To Morgan, Giselle is right out of a fairytale. To Robert, Giselle is a little wierd, but is so helpless. (Anyway, it is New York, so colorful is not that wierd :-)\
At Morgan's urging, Robert takes Giselle out of the rain and into his apartment just to dry off. Well wouldn't you know it--Giselle zonks out on the couch and the fun begins. Across the storyline side of town, Prince Edward jumps into the magic well looking for his Giselle. Not-so-nice Queen Narissa enlists the assistance of Nathaniel by hinting she will make him king and be his woman if he just gives Giselle an itty bitty poison apple. By the way, Robert the rescuer has a fiancee named Nancy, who just does not relish sharing him with Giselle. And the whole time, there is an adorable chipmunk from the Royal Court running around Manhattan trying to help Edward and Giselle get back together, while speaking Chipmunkese.
This is a great good vs. evil, feel-good story, a modern-day Cinderella. It is great viewing for the whole family. The music is great and so is the CGI (computer-graphic imaging). Giselle has a lovely voice, the kind that Disney typically uses for its movies. When you're all done watching the movie, watching the backstage scenes really gives you an appreciation of the work that went into this delightful movie. I have watched the DVD several times already....more info
- Enchanted is Enchanting
We saw this at the theater and it's just fun and charming. We weren't sure about watching a "cartoon", but it wasn't long and the scenerio turned into downtown Manhattan, NYC. We'll watch it again and again. Very clever! ...more info
This is an instant Disney Classic. Walked in not wanting to see it and walked out ENCHANTED! I Recommend it to everyone...more info
- Funny and Romantic
This was a date night movie that my husband took me on. It's definitely not what you would call a Guy movie, but he knew I would love. Love it, I most certainly did! I just got the DVD as a Christmas gift and watched it for the first time since seeing it in the theatre, and it was just as good. This is a classic Disney movie with a modern twist....more info
- I actually was "enchanted" by this movie!
I watched this movie just last night on Netflix, and though I thought it would be cute, I wasn't sure just how good it would be. This movie really shocked me. It was practically an old-school-Disney "Princess" movie - Brownie Point #1 - and it actually had REAL people in it, including a child (and to me, most kids in movies recently are just obnoxious), yet it wasn't overly mature (as in elements I don't think are appropriate for children) or annoying - Brownie Point #2! The cast was great, in my opinion, and I loved how the animated characters actually looked like them! It has music in it - classic "somehow everyone knows the lyrics and sings along" music - but that is part of the charm and it even sort of makes fun of itself about the singing.
Over all, a very good family movie! If you are a person that is looking for a quality kids movie that doesn't have a lot of the garbage that's in a lot of children's films nowadays - then this one is for you! It does have elements of fantasy magic - but no more so than "Sleeping Beauty" or the other classic animated ones.
- i like this one
I am 24 yrs old and enjoy this movie i really like some of the songs this will keep me watching for years great for adults and kids ...more info
- Downhill Disney
Disney films have pretty much gone downhill since the "Hunchback of Notre Dame" animated movie. In that film, the heroine kicks men in the groin to make her escape and the comedy relief is provided by a stone gargoyle that relieves itself by passing gas.
In this film, we have a live dog urinating on the leg of a prince and a chipmunk that defecates when frightened.
Is this what passes for family entertainment these days?...more info

- 3 stars out of 4
The Bottom Line:
A fun little film that works as a fairy tale and as a satire of one, Enchanted is one of those "family" entertainments that actually has a legitimate shot of pleasing the whole family; it's not perfect--the climax of the film leaves a lot to be desired--but it's a successful film....more info
- Enchanted Delivers The Best Of Disney
Enchanted (Widescreen Edition)Enchanted (Full Screen Edition)Enchanted [Blu-ray]
When the first previews for Disney's Enchanted hit the big and small screens it had the potential to be a cinematography disaster. But the story of an animated princess to-be being forced into the not so fairy tale world of New York City by an evil queen in attempts to stop a marriage and save her own position on the throne doesn't disappoint. The lovely and talented Amy Adams plays Gissele and James Marsden plays her one true love. Or so they think. What follows is an epic adventure as the prince enters the present day in search of his love not knowing that his wicked mother and her enamoured henchman are close behind. Aside from Adams and Marsden, the all star cast rounds out with Patrick Dempsey and Susan Sarandon. Disney goes all out in not only creating characters that will enchant you but also in capturing former scenes with a new twist. For instance, aside from all the cameo's by past Disney voices (see if you can figure out who plays Sam, Dempsey's secretary at his firm) an observant viewer will note other quaint references to past classics including: the Italian restaurant from Lady And The Tramp, a thrilling rooftop battle in the style of the Hunchback of Notre Dame, poison apples as only Snow White's witch can conncoct, a glass slipper in Cinderella's size, and a dragon of Sleeping Beauty proportions, to name a few. Even the musical score and lyrics composed by Disney favorite Howard Menken is charming. Enchanted is a beautiful modern take on fairy tales and is a must have for every DVD collection....more info
- ENCHANTING ALL THE FAMILY!
I simply adored this movie! The timeless fairy tale of the princess who is deceived by the queen so that she is not allowed to marry her beloved prince and become the new queen. The animation part is superb and was handmade. As everybody knows the princess falls through a kind of precipice and her punishment is to arrive at today's New York and become a real person, of flesh and blood! Lovely, hilarious and touching. ...more info
- good movie, bad CS...
This really is a pretty good movie, I recommend it. However, I suggest that you buy it from another seller, as I ordered this DVD in April 8 and it is now November 30 and still no delivery. I've sent multiple e-mails, but to no avail. I got 1 reply telling me that I was pretty much SOL. No package, and no refund. I ended up borrowing it from someone who DIDN'T try to order it from these people...

- Best movie ever!
This is a great movie that my boyfriend and I have seen together multiple times (we are 22 and 23). It's sort of a compilation of a bunch of other Disney movies and it's funny. Just plain funny. The love story is cute too I guess, but I like it because it's funny and very creative....more info
- For those who appreciate old-fashioned fairy tales
I found this movie to be pure enjoyment with plenty of opportunity for laughs. It combined what I loved about Disney movies of old with a shrewd cynical humor that a New Yorker would appreciate. Young and old will enjoy watching this film. Amy Adams personifies (literally) the Disney princess!...more info
- An Awesome Disney Film!!!
I thought this was really good and very funny! I love how it goes from cartoon to live-action! Giselle is forced down a portal by an evil Queen, and ends up in New York City. A man named Robert helps her. She stays with him and his daughter, Morgan. It has a classic fish-out-of-water story. Robert tries to show her how things are in the real world. I highly recommend ENCHANTED!!!...more info
Should an adult admit to watching this film? Well, I confess (but I was roped into seeing it the first time). What I found is not a child's film, but a very clever movie for adults (and a film that is at the same time uplifting and a tiny bit cynical). In any case, Amy Adams is absolutely adorable.
And you really have to see this film in high definition -- it looks glorious! Disney always does a nice job with their blu-ray releases....more info
- Bev the Great
This movie is one of the best I have seen for a long time. It is like a fairy tell story with a lot of romance. Your interest is kept from the beginning to the end. All ages will enjoy this DVD! By all means buy it....more info
- A hilarious conversation between a fairytale and the modern world
What a hoot! Starring Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, and Susan Sarandon, this modern take on the traditional fairy tale is a fun romp through all of Disney's previous stories.
Giselle (Adams), in her animated world of Andalasia, has the good fortune to meet her handsome Prince Edward (Marsden). The two experience love at first sight. With plans to marry the following day, Giselle heads to the castle in an elaborate wedding gown. Little does she know that jealous Queen Narissa (Sarandon, playing Edward's evil stepmother) and her henchman (Timothy Spall, in a fabulous comic turn) are plotting to prevent the wedding, enabling Narissa to remain queen indefinitely.
As Giselle arrives at the castle, Narissa pushes her down into a "wishing well," sending the beautiful would-be princess to a place where "there ARE no happy ever afters." This place? Modern-day New York City. After wandering aimlessly for a while, Giselle meets world-weary divorce lawyer Robert (Dempsey) and his six-year-old daughter. (Robert himself is a divorcee, though he has plans to propose to his current girldfriend.)
Cheerily awaiting Edward to come rescue her, Giselle calls her animal "friends" to help tidy up Robert's messy apartment. (In New York, that means a rather disgusting cadre of rats, pigeons, and cockroaches show up to dust off his kitchen countertops with their tails. Yuck.) She then proceeds to cut up Robert's drapes to craft inventive outfits for herself. Lastly, she wanders into a discussion between one of Robert's clients and her soon-to-be-ex-husband, causing more trouble for Robert. Robert is, by turns, infuriated and charmed.
Once Prince Edward, back in the mythical land of Andalasia, discovers what has happened to his bride-to-be, he blunders into New York himself to do his princely duty. From then on, the desires of each character lead us to a satisfying (but thoroughly over-the-top) conclusion.
What I find interesting about this movie is that it's a conversation between an optimistic fairy tale and the jaded modern world. Does true love exist? What about love at first sight? When so many traditional fantasies have been debunked, how do we continue to believe in "happily ever after?" Or believe in love at all?
Adams provides a great rendition of Giselle, a fairytale princess come to life. More impressive, though, are the moments in which Giselle realizes that she might not be such a good fit back in Andalasia now that she's had a taste of the "real world." Prince Edward is hilariously written (without malice) as a vapid, vacant, self-absorbed prince. Sarandon gloriously chews the scenery, and Dempsey (as always) provides the best-looking brokenhearted man I've ever had the pleasure of watching on screen.
I personally thought the ending fell apart a bit. It was a little too much, and the statements that Disney was going for were a little too blatant. However, I understand that this is a family movie, and some of those choices were designed to benefit younger viewers. At any rate, I don't think the ending detracted too mightily from the preceding action, which I heartily enjoyed.
I thought this movie was a great send-up of the fairytale tradition, and I applaud Disney for being big enough to wink at its own narrative history. What a fun film! ...more info
- So Cute! Even if Susan Sarandon is a little creepy
This movie is pretty much exactly what you'd expect: a cute story with a happy ending and just a hint of a twist in the middle. Still, it is executed very well. The music works perfectly, and the acting is done very well. Everyone seems to do a good job of hamming it up without going over the top. As noted in the title, Susan Sarandon seems a bit of an odd choice for her role, and it's a little creepy, but overall she pulls it off....more info
- Pure magic for all ages
This movie is pure magic - a true gift to all movie viewers of all ages. In this day and age it is so important to have a movie that just makes you feel good and manages to give you a natural high. This movie is so well crafted. The story is very original - cartoon characters coming to life - but it could have been silly. Instead, it is handled by only the most talented at all levels from director to A++++ actors to bring pure art together.
Amy Adams as the princess is a revelation. She inhabits this character with all she has. The princess becomes very real and you experience all the wonders of the world with her. Her comedic timing is impeccable and her singing is glorious. Adding Patrick Dempsey as her real life Prince Charming was ingenious casting. It is so great to see him away from Grey's Anatomy. He is a class act and truly personifies all that is good and caring in this world. He also manages to make his character believable and not a caricature.
When the movie bursts into song your heart will sing. It is amazing. The entire package of this film from beginning to end is pure magic and a journey for people of all ages to take. Show it to your kids so they can see that positive, happy feelings are possible. And for me, being 47, I recommend it to all adults. It will make you see how we all become a little jaded in life and it reminds us that the world can be magic and love is the greatest gift of all. True love's first kiss.
This movie will become a Disney classic. It ranks up there wih the best of them like Mary Poppins. It is honestly one of the best and most feel good movies I have ever seen.
