Weaknesses: Though I appreciated that Giselle doesn't end up with the prince, I didn't enjoy the relationship she ends up in. First, if they really wanted to twist the fairytale stuff, she could've finished things alone. If they had to go the route they did, it would've helped to have someone with charisma in the role. Patrick Dempsey (Robert Phillip) have a performance that was as bland as his character's name. The dialogue throughout the film was mostly lackluster outside of Giselle. Almost every scene involving the squirrel featured mediocre animation and wasn't as funny or cute as the creators seemed to intend.
Overall: I heard a ton of great things about this movie. While I can see the appeal, it has too many issues to be great. The things that click do so very well, but when the film misses, it does so by a lot.
The compilation of different borrowed ideas from in house Disney production installed as Easter eggs does bring a smile here and there but the original concept wears off easily for it relies completely onto it throughout the course of the feature. Kevin Lima is at its best on depicting this amusing world and its fine details with the help of its powerful script by Bill Kelly. On performance objective, Amy Adams has got it covered all with a great supporting cast like Susan Sarandon and Timothy Spall. Enchanted works like a charm as a love letter to all the early Disney features but it fails to capture its essence on terms of its sketchy aspects and originality.
The only annoying scene in the movie is at the very end with the feminist princess reversal.
I can't think of an actress more qualified for the princess role in Enchanted than Amy Adams. She is PERFECT in this movie!
all time favorite!
