Innovative concept meets gratingly dull plot. Take your 9-year-old, but bring your No Doze.

Enchanted is as conventional as the films it tries to satirize.

Eventually peddles the same old ass-backwards messages, equating physical beauty with goodness, and positing that a woman's greatest dream is that a hunk will materialize out of thin air and make her a contented homemaker and wife.

It quickly becomes obvious that instead of finding a fresh angle of approach, the filmmakers have simply given us yet another fish-out-of-water fantasy a la "Splash."

Given the possibilities it's not particularly inventive, but it is nice to see a comedy so affectionate with the conventions it spoofs.

Enchanted isn't something to get worked up over -- not only because it's so boring, but because it can't even be bothered to adhere to its own internal logic.

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.

Enchantment only goes so far in Disney's Enchanted, a sometimes clever, other times grating mix of live action and animation that plays tricks with levels of movie reality as the world of fairy-tale animation invades contemporary New York.

Overhyped family movie covered in a cellophane shrink-wrap of corporate Disney plastic-ness.

For a movie filled with magical occurences, Enchanted commits a cardinal sin: It forgets to cast a spell on the audience.

Disney's self-mocking combination of animation and live-action is not without its charm, but so slim is the satire that the result comes dangerously close to resembling a cheap imitation by a moderately talented wannabe.

Inaugurates an entirely new demographic into the formula machination of the chick-flick (marital edition).

It's so sugary that the adults in the audience should beware of the dangers of Type 2 Diabetes, though overall this is a great film to take the kids to during the school holidays.

Warm, funny and delightfully nostalgic, this is a must-watch this Christmas for the whole family.

There's no big shocker ending in Enchanted, and it follows a pretty typical formula, but what makes it a winner is its ability to make you smile anyway. Be forewarned, you might even get a cheek ache.

Narrated by Julie Andrews with Marsden gleefully camping it up and Adams the personification of winning charm, only a Scrooge would deny the film possesses oodles of fun and wit. It's just not as enchanting as it deserves to be.

Sometimes the big studios get it right. Enchanted is a high-concept fish-out-of-water tale that works on so many levels it's dizzying. Plus, it features a breakout performance by the luminous Amy Adams.

Enchanted is rich in Disney iconography, the best recipient of which is Susan Sarandon as the wicked Queen. The film in general really benefits from a stellar production team that create the feeling of a classic Disney film in the real world.

Enchanted is a sweet romantic fable, with some loveable performances and some genuine good humour.
