Enchanting! Disney has returned with the best fairy tale since ?Beauty and the Beast?! With amazing acting from the cast, Amy Adams is a princess indeed, an amazing score and lots of laughs makes ?Enchanted? the must see movie of the year!
The acting is not flawless but it is by far the best part of the film! Amy Adams brings her character to life in a way I never thought possible! Its as if she really is a princess from a far and distant land thrown into ours! She was simply amazing! The rest of the cast, James Marsden, Susan Sarandon and the rest are amazing as well. But Adams shines so bright that the rest of the cast gets looked over. Marsden shows off his great voice once again in Enchanted proving that a superhero can sing. His last role in ?Hairspray? was his big premier in a big screen musical and it seems to have kicked off his new career! Another thing I might mention is Pip? a small chipmunk is a small character in the movie but he adds a lot to the film.
The story was fantastic! Who ever thought this up was simply amazing! I never thought of anything of this sort but on the screen it works like a charm! It was funny, touching, cute and silly all at the same time! The thought of a princess from a fairytale land coming to ours was simply, well, cool! And the director and writers brought it to the screen in near perfection! The normal things that flaw movies such as this were nonexistent making the film seem flawless. Beware though; once you start watching? you wont be able to leave your seat! It seems so realistic that it draws you into it just waiting for the next mistake the poor lost princess is going to make. Each one is funny and gets you laughing, or at least for the modest ones, it will have you chuckling from start to finish.
Disney is back! The score was amazing taking you back to the days of Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and others! The singing, the orchestration the dancing! It?s all brought back in this fractured fairytale. The score, composed by Alan Menken and Harry Warren is one of the best this year! Amy Adams has a magical voice that when she sings all attention is on her! It?s simply magical! Marsden, as I already mentioned, has returned to the big screen with his vocal talents that are amazing as well. But Adams steals the show.
Overall, ?Enchanted? is a dream come true for every Disney fan longing for the days of the old princess tales. Granted, it might not be ?Snow White? or ?Beauty and the Beast?, but it takes Disney back to a time almost forgotten. The animation at the beginning was beautiful and well done. I wish there could have been more! But it added a flavor to the movie that most can?t get. In an age where animation is all about how realistic you can make it look with computers, it was nice to see some good old fashion animation! The story is charming, the acting beautiful and the music memorable? it?s the must see movie of the year! Don?t wait a month, don?t wait a week, don?t wait an hour! Get down to the theater and see this movie now!
