"An Instant Disney Classic"
-Scott Mantz, Access Hollywood
A fairy tale comes to life in this thoroughly original, new Disney Classic. Drawing inspiration from its classic heritage, Disney creates an inspired story unlike any you've experienced before.
Filled with excitement, fun and incredible music from the legendary Alan Menkin, Enchanted is the ultimate fish-out-of-water adventure. For princess-to-be Giselle, life is a fairy tale - until she's banished from the animated land of Andalasia and thrust into the very unmagical live-action world of modern-day Manhattan. When a cynical, no-nonsense divorce lawyer comes to her aid, little does he realize this joyful, wide-eyed innocent is about to enchant him. Enchanted - the musical comedy that will have your entire family under its spell.

Surprisingly, I DID NOT like the animated portions of this film. It was too much a reminder of why I don't like the type of Disney movie that this film seeks to parody. Way too much singing. And to that end, many scenes of the live action portions of this film play out like a musical, but Amy Adams' naive and bubbly princess is entirely too endearing even for a cynic like me. Oh yeah, and Patrick Dempsey was looking quite handsome.
