Critic Reviews for Enchanted
By the time you are reading this, the ads will already be proclaiming that Enchanted is "enchanting," and for once they'll be spot on.
Like the Cinderella figure she plays in Disney's Enchanted, Amy Adams spreads a contagion of delight. The movie is great fun, but she's enchanting.
Happily, the leads carry the day: James Marsden as a prince of grinning vanity, Susan Sarandon as the wicked stepmother, and, above all, Amy Adams, who, in the role of a would-be princess, finds true momentum, not just sappiness, in the farce of innocence.
Though the film is full of allusions to the Disney canon, they are generally unobtrusive echoes rather than eager satires. This is a children's movie at which adults are also welcome, not a cartoon for grownups.
Audience Reviews for Enchanted
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.
Starting off predictable in it's own fairytale world, "Enchanted" makes you believe that you about to enter a classic disney fable, whether you like it or not. It even seems that way when the characters enter our world, until the self-awareness and hilarity ensues. About halfway through this film is when I started to believe this was going to be a great film. "Enchanted is very well-written and the story (although predictable) is very charming and a blast to watch. As predictable as it is, it seems fresh in almost every way. I really really liked this film. From it's goofy humor to it's sweet conclusion, "Enchanted" is great!
This one was actually a surprised. Very funny and entertaining. Amy Adams is awesome and Marsden is laugh-out-loud funny. It's definitely worth watching.

|Queen Narissa:||All this talk of true love's kiss it really does bring out the worst in me. You know if I'm going to remain queen I need a story for when I get back home. Hmm. what if a giant beast showed up and killed everyone, and poor defenseless Queen Narissa. she just couldn't save them? (points to Giselle) Let's begin with the girl who started it all shall we?|
