    I don't know why this is so delayed since I've seen this movie countless times, but it is an utterly delightful satiric poke at Disney's brand. Amy Adams delivers an all-time great performance and the music and humor is perfect. Rating: 95

    Enchanted is a wonderful spoof on the classic Disney fairy tale story that mixes animation with live-action. When a lovely young maiden named Giselle from the land of Andalasia is saved by the handsome Prince Edward, the evil queen tries to stop their marriage by banishing Giselle to the real-world. The film is extraordinarily well-written, and includes homages to many of Disney's animated films. Also, the comedy is incredibly fun; with lots of witty satire and clever dialog. The music too is brilliantly done, featuring such whimsical songs as "Happy Working Song" and "That's How You Know." Starring Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, and Susan Sarandon, the performances are all quite good (particularly Adams, who does an amazing job at embodying a Disney princess). Yet there are some problems, especially with the ending: as it tries to transition into a fully blown fairy tale with dragons and duels. Still, Enchanted delivers a magical adventure that's delightfully entertaining.

    A guilty pleasure for those who like being overdosed on clichés. Made me laugh heartily (read: spit my dinner onto my screen). But a lot of the "evil queen's" scheme was frustratingly illogical.

    At first I thought I was going to hate this film when I first saw the trailer, but after my first view of this film, I surprisingly liked it. The animated segments was beautifully well done, the forest animals are so cute, storywise it's a combination of the first 3 classic Disney fairy tales (Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty), but with a twist. The main charcters from the fantasy world, are in NYC for the second half of the film. For the live action scenes, my reactions are pretty mixed, some of the acting can be iffy at times, but luckily, that's only during a couple scenes, other than that most of the performances were actually good. Now in almost every Disney film, the one that steals the show are the villains, and this one is no excepion. Queen Narissa was beautifully animated and her live-action scenes are good too. The only part that dissipointed me was the dragon scene, the dragon's CG animation just couldn't facinate me and the design wasn't all that great either. Overall, this film is recommended for 2 groups of people, if one likes live action drama with a little fantasy, then the live action scenes would highly be appriciated. If one, like me, is a die-hard Disney fan and looking for a rebound of their classic stories, than the animated segments would definatly work like a charm.
