    Enchanted (2007)

    Sorry, just not my style......
    I DO believe in fairy tale style romance and in not letting the methods of society's corruption corrupt everything. The harsh message of this movie the whole time seemed to be that real "true love is a fairytale", and that instead true love is more about having fun together and a random, meandering occurrence.

    Just because life isn't always all it's cracked up to be, doesn't mean relationships have to merge into that. They overcome that.

    And that's kind of what the movie suggested at the end, and yet it's not. The ending really just seemed to be a random ending diametrically opposed to the theme of casting down the "happily ever after image".

    If the point of the movie is found in the little girl... and the idea that you shouldn't just blindly rush into "true love" because it's someone, I'm all for it. But the movie made that a shadow image instead of a main idea by the way it played out.

    I enjoyed the fact some of the "princess'" ways carried into the real world, and the acting was fair, but overall, just not a movie I can enjoy.
