Disney’s 2007 Christmas gift to moviegoers is out on DVD just in time to get into Easter baskets everywhere!
“Enchanted” begins as a cartoon in Fairytale Land. Princess Giselle (voiced and played by Amy Adams) is looking for a handsome prince. Soon she meets one, but before they can get married the Princess gets dumped into a well by an evil queen. She comes out of the other end of the well in New York City, where she turns into a real live person.
In NYC the Princess meets a lawyer (played by Patrick Dempsey). They become friends and begin to fall in love. But Prince Edward soon arrives on the scene, as does the evil queen, and things get really complicated.
Included in this original story are some great musical numbers (three of which got nominated for Academy Awards) and plenty of laughs. The animation is fun, especially the CGI effects involving the animals that help the Princess.
Other actors include James Marsden (from “Hairspray”) and Susan Sarandon. Plus, Julie Andrews has a brief role as the narrator.
“Enchanted” is rated PG for a few scary scenes in the film’s final 10 minutes. So you parents of real little ones be ready with hugs.
On The Official Kid Critic Report Card, “Enchanted” gets a B.
This is a rare movie that all age groups – kids, teens, adults and seniors can enjoy. And get ready for the sequel! (see 3/16 “Blog…Blog…Blog…”)
