Product Description

An animated fairy tale meets modern, live-action comedy. The story follows the beautiful princess Giselle (Amy Adams) who is banished by an evil queen (Susan Sarandon) from her magical, musical animated land and finds herself in the gritty reality of the streets of modern-day Manhattan. Shocked by this strange new environment that doesn't operate on a 'happily ever after' basis, Giselle is now adrift in a chaotic world badly in need of enchantment. But when Giselle begins to fall in love with a charmingly flawed divorce lawyer (Patrick Dempsey) who has come to her aid - even though she is already promised to a perfect fairy tale prince back home - she has to wonder: Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?

From Amazon.co.uk

If you’re looking for signs that the modern-day Disney has lost neither its touch nor its savvy nature, then there’s evidence in abundance in the smart modern-day fairy tale Enchanted. Bookended by the kind of old-style animation the studio is rightly famed for, the main, live action segment of the film finds Amy Adams’ Giselle--an archetypal Disney princess in pretty much every sense--dropped slap bang into the middle of modern day New York.

What follows is ingenious fun, as Giselle walks round very much as a fish out of water, followed quickly by James Marsden’s prince who attempts to come to the rescue. Thing is, modern day New York and old style princesses don’t really mix, and Enchanted studiously mines the comedy of the scenario, thanks to a smart and witty script.

What also lifts Enchanted though are the delightful tips of the hat to classics of Disney old. And we’re not just talking the show-stopping numbers: there are references to the likes of Beauty and the Beast, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty to be found here, and a star-making performance from Adams powering the whole film forward.

One of the very best family movies of 2007, Enchanted does occasionally stumble through the odd twee moment (and it could really use a villain with more screen time than Susan Sarandon’s wicked stepmother gets), but that can’t hide the fact that it’s terrific fun, lavishly made and, at its best, quite brilliant. A modern day family classic, and great to see Disney once again delivering the kind of entertainment it excels at. --Simon Brew

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.

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.

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.

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.

I'm not a massive Disney fan, they've produced some absolute classics but their output over the last couple of decades hasn't always been strong, and other than infrequent gems like Beauty And The Beast, most Disney films have felt like weak shadows of their predecessors. I was expected this to be another cheesy movie full of self promotion and with little to interest to anyone other than a young audience - but I was wrong...

...Enchanted starts as a fully animated film, it brims with the saccharine sweetness so integral to the cheesyness of a Disney film, but here it's purposefully over-the top and done as a gentle parody of the stereotyped Disney Princess. When the lovely Giselle ends up being forced out of the animated world and into the harsh reality of a bust New York City at the hands of her potential future mother-in-law it's a brilliant way to show the differences between the cosy animated world and the gritty real world. As Giselle roams the city, her only hope is that her fiancée Edward (her prince charming) will find her. Thankfully she finds sanctuary with divorce lawyer Robert - though he's not a willing host, initially anyway.

This is full of little references to well known Disney characters but many of them are subtly done, such as real life people in the background who have at some point in their career been a voice artist for a major character, or animated characters from classic films making an appearance in the animated segment at the beginning. This is a thoroughly modern film but still functions as a successful family musical - the music is incredibly catchy and better than some of the songs from more recent films.

Format: DVD
An Enchanting modern fairytale from Disney that uses the fun approach of mixing fairytale animation reminscent of "The Little Mermaid" with live action film. While it may not hold as much magic as the older Disney Classics that we all grew up on, it still has enough of that old sparkle to make your heart swell with a catchy and innocent soundtrack, amusing comedic sequences, and undying romance that makes you believe in love again.

PLOT:

In a cartoon fairyland called Andalasia (the epitome of every Disney Cartoon you've EVER seen), a beautiful, innocent and saccharine sweet woman called Giselle is saved from a Troll by the handsome charming and confident Prince Edward; the two become so immediately enamoured that they plan their wedding on the spot, much to the disdain of Prince Edward's wicked Stepmother Queen Narissa. Convinced that Giselle's marriage to Edward will ultimately rob her of her throne, Narissa devises a scheme to get rid of the soon-to-be Princess, and before the wedding can occur, Giselle is pushed into a magic Wishing Well that sends her into a different world entirely - our world.

Now no longer a cartoon, Giselle finds herself climbing out of a manhole in the middle of Times Square, New York as a real woman with a ridiculously large and puffy dress in amongst a crowd that has no time for her silliness. Frightened, confused and desperate to reach the castle and find her Prince, she goes on a mad search that leads her to meeting a handsome, divorced and rather cynical lawyer known as Robert and his lonely six-year old daughter Morgan.
