Screen Gems Movie Reviews with Kennie Bass. You'll find it First On Fox!
November 23, 2007 Enchanted
Studio: Walt Disney Pictures Rating: PG for some scary images and mild innuendo.
A cartoon princess from the past is thrust into the real world of today. The new movie "Enchanted" does such a fine job of telling its story that the movie will leave you spellbound.
Snow White, Cinderella. Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Jasmine, Ariel, Mulan and Pocahontas...all of these Disney stars faced danger in the movies but in the end they of course, lived happily ever after.
Now, a there is a new princess in town.
In the film "Enchanted," Amy Adams stars as Giselle. When an evil queen (Susan Sarandon) gets rid of Giselle she sends her to our world. Needless to say, the princess has a bit of adjusting to do.
But Giselle isn't alone. Her prince (James Marsden) follows her to this world, determined to find her.
If you are a fan of Disney animation, and I am...you will really like "Enchanted."
Adams hits all of the right notes as Giselle. She's beautiful and avoids playing the role as a cliche. She's sincere without being too sugary. I really like her character.
Marsden's prince is also great. His quest to find Giselle and return home keeps the story moving. Edward gets into some interesting situations as he makes his way around New York.
Patrick Dempsey plays a lawyer named Robert. He helps the stranded Giselle and eventually Edward. Robert is an ordinary guy doing his best to get the royal pair back home.
The animation is great. It reminds me of those classic Disney cartoons of the past. And the musical numbers are show stoppers. Composer Alan Mencken teams up with lyricist Stephen Schwartz and they produce some incredible songs.
This is a feel good movie that fits perfectly into the holiday season. Take your children to see it, but even if you don't have little ones don't cheat yourself out of missing a very fun night at the movies.
