In Enchanted, even the vermin whistle while they work.

By the time you are reading this, the ads will already be proclaiming that Enchanted is "enchanting," and for once they'll be spot on.

Like the Cinderella figure she plays in Disney's Enchanted, Amy Adams spreads a contagion of delight. The movie is great fun, but she's enchanting.

Top Critic

Happily, the leads carry the day: James Marsden as a prince of grinning vanity, Susan Sarandon as the wicked stepmother, and, above all, Amy Adams, who, in the role of a would-be princess, finds true momentum, not just sappiness, in the farce of innocence.

In the hands of Adams, the evolution elicits as much sympathy as it does laughter, largely because she grounds every pivotal moment in wide-eyed kindness and generosity, pushing us to care about her fate.

After about half-an-hour the comic steam is dispersed by whimsy, though Timothy Spall is pretty funny as the Evil Stepmother's varlet valet.

Audience Reviews for Enchanted

Proof that kids movies still have it in them to be something very special.

A guilty pleasure for those who like being overdosed on clichés. Made me laugh heartily (read: spit my dinner onto my screen). But a lot of the "evil queen's" scheme was frustratingly illogical.

Starting off predictable in it's own fairytale world, "Enchanted" makes you believe that you about to enter a classic disney fable, whether you like it or not. It even seems that way when the characters enter our world, until the self-awareness and hilarity ensues. About halfway through this film is when I started to believe this was going to be a great film. "Enchanted is very well-written and the story (although predictable) is very charming and a blast to watch. As predictable as it is, it seems fresh in almost every way. I really really liked this film. From it's goofy humor to it's sweet conclusion, "Enchanted" is great!
