Endearing, enduring, with just a few bits of crude humor

Anne Hathaway is the cheery spark in this glitzy girl's fantasy story from screenwriters Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith ("Legally Blonde").

The Narrator begins and ends the story talking about how fairy tales transport us to another place, but the sad fact is that Ella lets us stay right where we are.

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.

The idea of mixing the modern with the medieval is a dubious Mulligan's stew -- and annoys quickly.

'El pblico seguramente quedar encantado por la inocencia, el humor y la magia de una pelcula a la que seguramente el tiempo dar el lugar que merece.'

Mesmo pecando por ser convencional demais, este um filme charmoso e bem-intencionado - e certamente far grande sucesso entre as crianas.

A thoroughly charming performer with a bracing freshness about her that carries the film, [Hathaway] establishes credible chemistry with Brit thesp Dancy.

A sweet little anachronistic musical fairy tale along the lines of 'Shrek.'

Someone should tell O'Haver and the gaggle of writers it took to write this unenchanted mess that updated doesn't have to mean washed-up and dumbed-down.
April 22, 2004
It looks tiring for a movie to flaunt its sense of irony as eagerly as Ella Enchanted while remaining so naive.
April 22, 2004
Looks an awful lot like "Shrek," down to the funky closing dance sequence.
April 20, 2004
An overcalculated fusion of Shrek and The Princess Bride with all the smarts replaced by smartass.

It's sweet, it's quirky, and the whole family can fall under its spell.
April 18, 2004
Wonderfully sweet and thoroughly enjoyable, it's like a live-action Shrek.

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.
