Love this movie! So light and fun great songs and funny story line. Giselle is such a funny princess when she comes out into the "real" world. Prince Edward is the weirdest prince and so funny! Great family movie! 5 stars

The very essence of "Disney Magic." Amy Adams is extraordinary--totally immersed herself in the character of Giselle. Excellent supporting cast, especially the adorable Rachel Covey. My only criticism is the hokey dragon/overwrought monologue near the end; way out of character with the rest of the film.

A light and fun Disney princess story that pokes fun at the conventions of its genre, while at the same time embracing them wholeheartedly. I loved the way that the movie pulled characters from the animated world at the beginning, and manifested them in modern-day-New-York, complete with "real-life" versions of the costumes that look great in drawings, but seem a bit different against the backdrop of skyscrapers and asphalt. Just a really pleasingly-fluffy story with plenty of happily-ever-afters for all.

Enchanted is a brilliant movie, poking fun at all things Disney, Disney Princess, and fairy tales in general. Given a modern setting, and with gorgeous animation, this is a movie everyone can enjoy, assuming you have a soul.

Enchanted was a great and hilarious movie that is great for families anytime. This movie is about a princess set in cartoon time that travels her way back into New York City living with real humans. She needs to become used to reality and so she bumps into this man who ends up taking her into his house in order to support her. He believes that she is not the brightest tool in the shed and she's completely naïve to the world around her. Eventually he discovers that she is from a cartoonland and she got to New York City by the means of magic. I enjoyed this movie because it was funny and it was serious at the same time! It was cool to see how the princess got back to her own village but it was also nerve-wracking at times because you didn't know what was going to happen next. I would rate this movie a 4/5.

Twisted stories are my favorite types of stories. This movie is awesome. I love Amy Adams as a princess. She's so perfect. James Marsden makes a perfect prince. Charming and funny. Patrick Dempsey is cool too although I couldn't really imagine any other person as Robert. Every scene makes you want to laugh cry or just have fun. I wish all movies were like this. But if they were there would be not as much variety. So all in all this movie is one of my favorites.

This is pretty good but a tiny bit too lovey-dovey for my taste. The music is pretty good, though. I don't think this would be very appropriate for young children though due to mature scenes and topic.

Sexual Content: Sexual tension between Giselle and Robert and kissing scenes.

deadpoollover Mar 06, 2014

Frightening or Intense Scenes: in one scene the evil queen casts a spell that changes her into a gigantic dragon. younger viewers might find this a little terrifying. but we should remind them that things like dragons and magic don't actually exist.

Banished by an evil queen, Princess Giselle (Amy Adams) from a fairy-tale world lands in modern Manhattan, where music, magic and "happily ever after" are sorely lacking.

Giselle begins to fall for her flawed benefactor, but the storybook romance gets complicated when a prince from her world comes to rescue her.
