    Enchanted - Practically Perfect in every way




    The movie is quite simply, the best Family movie in the past few years. From the beginning, the movie sucks you in with narration from a Disney Legend.

    You fall in love with the characters right away and it's quite simply a return to the greatness that Disney can deliver.

    The cast led by Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden and Timothy Spall (Wormtail from the Harry Potter movies who gives an inspired Oscar-worthy performance) is impeccable. Rounding out the cast is Susan Sarandon who is part Evil Queen, part Maleficent and pure EVIL and the adorable Rachel Covey who is the perfect "mini-princess" for Giselle to play off of.

    The music by Stephen Schwartz and Alan Menken (in a return to brilliance) is terrific. The original songs are the best to come out of Disney since The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

    The story, quite simply is part fish-out-of-water, part romantic comedy, part animated and all fun. The live-action portion of the movie feels like your watching animation. The way that Giselle infects those around her with her innocent "Princess-esque" demeanor is really at the heart of what makes the movie so great.

    Of course, it wouldn't be Disney without a few scene-stealing animals who don't take over the movie and really are what they are meant to be, supporting characters.

    There are a few nods to the past as well. I won't share them here, but let's just say they are subtle enough not to be distracting, but still there enough to bring a smile to your face.

    The violence in the movie is nothing more than what you would see in any other PG family movie, and really aside from being live-action, isn't anything you wouldn't see in movies such as Sleeping Beauty or Snow White.

    Even though this was a free-preview, I have no doubt we will be going to see this again once it hits theatres. Maybe a few times.

    Make your way to the theatre over Thanksgiving weekend and see this movie. You will not be dissapointed.

        With the lack of interesting movies lately, this is great to hear. Thanks Clinks.

          Thanks for the review! Did you also have a chance to preview the new Goofy short that will be released with this movie?

          If so, what are your thoughts?

            No, the goofy short was not part of the preview. Only a preview of National Treasure: Book of Secrets (which looks good as well).

              Timothy Spall (Wormtongue from the Harry Potter movies who gives an inspired Oscar-worthy performance) is impeccable.
              I feel I must correct this! WormTAIL. not tongue.

                                I listened to the movie's soundtrack, and during one part there's a melody that sounds EXACTLY like part of the score for Beauty and the Beast. Is this one of the references, or was this just coincidence?

                                  It was a sneak preview in Woodland Hills at the AMC.

                                  Yes, you are correct. There is another part also.

                                      Ok, I thought I might've been hearing things, lol. At least that makes sense now.


                                      I just watched a featurette on how they played upon many elements of Disney's past movies in Enchanted. I can't wait to see it! :yea:

                                        Sounds great, Gregg!

                                        Some of the costumes from the movie were up in the window today at the Disney Store on 5th Avenue in Manhattan.
                                        One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.
