This modern-day Cinderella fantasy stars Anne Hathaway as Ella, who lives in a magical world where every child is given a gift by a fairy godmother after they are born. Ella is given the 'gift' of obedience - which soon turns out to be more of a curse, as her thoughtless and selfish father gets re-married after the death of Ella's mother's to a vain and cruel woman with two equally unpleasant daughters - and Ella is spellbound to do everything they tell her to. Determined to track down the godmother who burdened her with this terrible millstone, Ella embarks on a journey that takes in all kinds of magical adventures and fantastical creatures including fairies, elves and ogres, and even a fairy-tale prince (Hugh Dancy).

A great, contemporary twist on the classic "Cinderella" tale, this time with a young woman who, in spite of her unfortunate predicament is incredibly funny and is still able to learn to stand up for herself as the film goes on, "Ella Enchanted" shows that all things that can prove to be both good and bad can be overcome. Joanna Lumley makes a darkly glamorous and nasty stepmother, while Lucy Punch is wonderfully eccentric as Hattie who is both Ella's real bully and the self professed wife to be of Prince Charmont, played by Hugh Dancy, who is forever chased by her and other wildly screaming girls (talk about obsessed)! He is just gorgeous; hard not to love him, especially when he's not being followed by them. Jim Carter, who seems to pop up in almost everything (and not just "Downton Abbey") gets a cameo as a man eating ogre; I could just tell it was him by the voice. I seriously love Vivica A. Fox as Lucinda because she's just so hip, sexy and has a real attitude problem. Put that next to Minnie Driver who plays yet another fairy who has a serious spell casting issue and is joined with Jimi Mistry as the voice of her disembodied lover, Heidi Klum as a well stylish giantess with a grudge on the Grimms Brothers and Cary Elwes as the totally weird and wicked Prince Regent Edgar, and you've got yourself a right one way wicked ticket to a magically captivating film.
Also on the DVD is a whole set of Special Features, which are well cool, apart from perhaps the "Prince Charmont's Fan Club" game (in my opinion we see enough of his fans in the film altogether)! Aside from that though, there's a nice selection of extended and deleted scenes (check out the one where Hattie gets her comeuppance for having been so nasty to Ella)! The film featurette "Making The World Of Ella Enchanted" is terrific fun, as it covers all of the music that made its way into the film and some other information about it, and Kari Kimmel's music video "It's Not Just Make Believe" is well worth watching, and she's got an awesome voice too! I'm very happy with this film; it's full of non - stop action, magic and pure family entertainment, and I recommend it to anyone who loved Anne Hathaway in "The Princess Diaries"!
It's thrilling, there's action- even if it's a little sexist. I wouldn't recommend it for young children- there are some mushy moments- be warned. It's a funny movie too- there are some great moments. I would say it's a family movie, maybe 10 and up? Mostly because of the romance. It's not very scary at all- don't worry about that!
The actors and actresses are perfect though, and there are some classic songs in there, enjoy- be warned, I'm not sure if boys would want to watch this if they're at the "mushy = yuck" stage!
Hope this review helps!
