Avoids a misstep common among girl-empowerment flicks, which often emasculate the male lead to make the heroine truly heroic… manages to make both leads appealing.

There's enough attitude here to keep the audience laughing, even when the film tips into stupid spoofery.

if they ruined...as badly as they ruined "Ella Enchanted" then we're going to have to start a revolution or something.

An artificially flavored movie potion...audiences may be less than enchanted with the gobbledygook results.
