From Amazon.co.uk

In many ways harking back to the Disney animated movies of old, Enchanted is a terrific, contemporary fairy tale. It mixes in live action with hand drawn animation to terrific effect, and in true traditional Disney style, it’s got a princess, a baddie and a clutch of catchy songs too.

At the heart of Enchanted is the wonderful Amy Adams, as the cartoon princess who arrives in human form in the middle of New York City. There, she must seek her prince, while finding her storybook view of fairy tale romance thoroughly challenged by a very modern New York. The film expertly mines this scenario for its many laughs, and even during the weaker moments, Adams easily sells the concept in a star-making performance. A pity that Susan Sarandon’s villain doesn’t get more screen time, though. The glimpses of her that we get are very, very good.

Enchanted does nonetheless benefit from a very strong high definition transfer. And what’s particularly impressive here is how well it handles the contrast between the animated and live action segments, both of which are backed by a lively surround sound mix. Ultimately, though, Enchanted earns a firm recommendation not just for the quality of its Blu-ray release, but for being a genuinely funny and charming modern day fairy tale, with real family appeal. A real achievement, and an accomplished mix of old and new Disney. --Jon Foster

Synopsis

With a fine cast and fun in-jokes, Disney's Enchanted is sure to cast a spell over both children and adults. It begins with a 2-D animation sequence reminiscent of the company's beloved past. Surrounded by dozens of cute animals, Giselle (voiced and later played by Amy Adams) sings about her desire to find her one true love. Meanwhile, a handsome prince (James Marsden) overhears her, and they meet and fall in love. In many Disney movies, this is where the story ends, but Enchanted is just starting out on its journey. The prince’s wicked stepmother (Susan Sarandon) can’t stand to lose her throne, so she pushes Giselle down a well, and the beauty ends up in the real world. Gone is the animated fantasy, and a live-action Giselle lands in the middle of Times Square in New York City. Her optimism and perkiness put her at odds with the New Yorkers she encounters, but she gets help from a cynical divorce lawyer (Patrick Dempsey) as she waits for her prince to rescue her.


Fans of Disney classics from Sleeping Beauty to Beauty and the Beast will be glad to see their favourite films referenced in Enchanted. Jodi Benson (the voice of Ariel in The Little Mermaid) makes a brief appearance, and the evil queen threatens to kill Giselle with a poisoned apple a la Snow White. Though it reminds the audience of past favourites, Enchanted boasts its own script that is at once intelligent and heartwarming. But the true highlight of the film is the acting by the fairy tale couple. Marsden (Hairspray) couldn’t be funnier as the charming prince, while Adams (an Oscar nominee for 2005’s Junebug) gives dimension to the heroine. As a result, Enchanted is a film that deserves to sit on a shelf with Disney’s classics.

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern classic 24 Mar 2008
Format:DVD
My young daughter dragged me to see this film without me really knowing too much about it. As soon as the film starts, you are immediately taken in by it and absorbed into the story. The special effects are simply outstanding and the coming together of the make believe with the real world is extremely clever.
The story has all the elements of a modern classic including the song and dance. I cannot recommend this film highly enough, and will certainly bag my copy on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant 1 April 2008
Format:DVD
I have seen this film twice with my 5 year old daughter and loved it both times. I love New York so it helped that it was set there! The acting, the storyline, the fairytale element was all excellent and was very funny throughout. Will definately be buying this film and I am not sure if its for my daughter or myself, would recommend to anyone with children or adults who like a silly, comical fairytale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Disney release 14 Nov 2008
By Film Buff VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Five stars all the way. Disney are proving that they're the company to beat when it comes to the next gen format. Almost all of their releases so far have been flawless. From the great Ratatouile, the 3D like image on High School Musical and the the stunning Pirates (Black Pearl) they have raised the bar for picture and sound quality. This release is no different. Enchanted is as close to perfect as you can get - the picture leaps of the screen and the sound drags you into the experience. The film itself is fantastic fun for adults and children. The story shows what happens when an animated princess wakes up in modern day New York (as the not so animated Amy Adams) Amy is incredible in this movie - she makes you believe that she's stepped out of a Disney cartoon! I can't recommend this to you enough. One of the top five Blu-rays available for picture and sound quality!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Film - brings a smile to your face 3 Jun 2008
By Bridget O VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is a wonderful film - well done Disney! A modern day Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty all wrapped up in one. And it's soooo cheesy being a musical - I dare anyone not to smile at the singing in the park scene. Loved it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Enchanting Story 12 April 2008
By I. Hall
Format:DVD
This film is absolutely brilliant. You have a great actress to come Amy Adams as the leading lady. This is a enchanting story about a girl who want to meet her leading man find's her leading man (or does she?) fall's down a waterfall into the real world. That's where the magic really shines. All the actors are outstanding. The little chipmunk really steal's some of the film with his way of doing things. Patrick Dempsey is very good as the other leading man. I really loved this film as it has some of the fairy tales loosely in this film. (you have to spot them.)
I give this gem of a film 10/10 it's that fab.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting return to traditional Disney magic. 29 Jun 2009
Format:DVD
Though I can see why it would appear as a slightly cheap rehash of existing fairytale themes, I would urge those who have not had the pleasure of watching Enchanted to catch up as soon as possible.

This film will appeal to all ages and would be a great gift for a child, though I feel its real potential lies in tapping into the latent fans like myself who grew up during Disney's unforgettable 'musical' era of the 90s which gave us such gems as The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.

The characters are instantly likeable - as much for the actors' ability to laugh at themselves as well as their immediate fairytale charm, and the story launches quickly, with arch-villain Narissa's dragon monster lurking in the shadows within the first five minutes. It is visually spectacular, using special effects sparingly but with high impact, and the film's integration of story strands from classic Disney films like Snow White and Sleeping Beauty adds an interesting hybridised twist that does not feel forced or clumsy.

Perhaps the film's greatest achievement is its expression of the fact that as long as you respect the realities of true adult love, leaving that love devoid of any fantasy for the sake of being grown-up is a short-sell, and maybe all of us could take a lesson from the kind of fairytale romance that saw Snow White carried off to her castle in the clouds.

The film peaks not in the CGI-created violent final stand-off with Narissa, but shortly before with Alan Menken's 'So Close,' an achingly sad song about never quite reaching the love of your dreams, matched to a classic ballroom scene, and arguably one of Disney's finest moments of the last ten years.

Disney have strayed somewhat from their original vision in their recent obsession with Pixar-powered, Dreamworks imitative productions - with lots of heart, Enchanted brings Disney back to what they do best.

Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A funny, endearing movie 25 July 2008
By J. Hunt
Format:DVD
This film is a funny, clever and very entertaining piece which is really made by the high quality of the acting and the excellent musical numbers. Amy Adams makes a perfect Disney princess and is supported by a super cast, each of whom makes their character believable. It's lovely from a romantic point of view but was also enjoyed by my ten year old sons who watched it a number of times (just don't tell their friends....)Highly recommended feel good fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disney animation comes to life 19 May 2008
Format:DVD
Disney fantasy comes alive (literally) in this animated masterpiece that transforms into a real-life movie with some added CGI cuties. This is all in all a typical Disney movie; the feel, the sound, the songs and the plot. But what makes this heart filled comedy special is the contrast between the happy sweet life of a fairy tale story and the reality of life in the city of New York.

The story sees the evil queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) deviously plotting ways to stop her nephew - the prince from meeting his true love. Giselle (Amy Adams) encounters the prince and on her wedding day is tricked by the queen, and finds her self transported from the animated fantasy world of Andalasia to the real-life city of New York. She befriends a divorce lawyer and his daughter who takes this confused fairytale princess into their lives. The rest is a funny sequence of mishaps and magical elements as Giselle tries to adapt to real-life whilst the Prince is amusingly trying to track her down.

A fun filled family movie that brings out a magical "Disney style" smile.
