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

I wouldn't even mind watching it more than once, which is the true test.
April 14, 2004
There's lots of activity and energy, but no joy nor sense of spontaneity.
April 13, 2004
The mentality of the movie seemed to aim a little low, missing its core Princess Diaries audience and becoming pure Disney Channel fodder to follow Boy Meets World reruns.

As one concerned fan of the book wrote on the Internet Movie Database after seeing the trailer, 'The producers are changing too much things in it and making it too stupid.' Exactly.

A contemporary fairy tale starring Ann Hathaway is enchanting, funny and fun for kids and adults.

Veers wildly from juvenile comedy to romance to morality lesson, never quite finds its footing.

Ella Enchanted is a pleasurable surprise, a superior family film that is destined to entertain both children and adults.

In its innocence, sweet heart and abundant wit, it has more going for it, by my accounting, than a dozen more expensive-looking films.

This all makes for good and entertaining fun, from the musical numbers of 1980s pop tunes to the flamboyant fight scenes. For a while. But you've seen this all before.

Mostly ... the film bubbles along happily.

O'Haver ... has a great time juggling silly jokes, contemporary tunes and anachronisms like hand-cranked escalators at the medieval mall.
