Enchanted: A Disney movie

Freakin’ hilarious! I’m just not sure that Disney intended for it to be this kind of funny. So Princess Giselle (Amy Adams) falls into the Prince Edward’s (James Marsden) arms after falling from trees some umpteen feet high after being chased by an troll and after immediately after introductions, “We will marry tomorrow!” Oh yes, I had quite the giggle over that one. I guess I had just forgotten how incredibly innocent Disney movies can be.

Throughout the song, “How do you know?” I felt like I was watching a movie on ecstacy. Not that I would know anything about that but I heard it makes you feel all lovey-dovey towards everything and anything and anyone and everyone and – you get the picture. And I’m sorry, but why does the Prince have to be so dumb? How is that romantic? At least the Princess is teaching someone a thing or two about love.

And if you seen this movie… did you catch the part where right after an attempt to interview Giselle, a reporter went on to ask, “Is rodent rage on the rise?” HA! How fitting of American media (sorry to be a hater, I promise it won’t happen often… I just thought it was funny).

Ok, ok all sarcasm aside: The best thing I loved about this movie is that Julie Andrews is involved because she is my favourite singer/actress of all time (side note: I love the photo above, because it reminds me of the opening scene of The Sound of Music, my all time favourite Julie Andrews movie). And since we’re on the subject of singing, I have to talk about the music in the movie… I know I was being a bit sarcastic earlier but I loved the music, it just made me feel so good! But I am glad there are only few songs in the movie.

I also liked how short and sweet the movie was, but then again I wasn’t expecting anything different from a Disney movie. The chick in me loved this movie because, true to form, in this Disney movie… everyone (except for the evil witch) lived happily ever after. And lastly, I especially loved the twist on this modern day fairytale. Want to know what I’m talking about? You’ll just have to watch the movie won’t you?

A fairy tale comes to life in this thoroughly original, new Disney Classic. Drawing inspiration from its classic heritage, Disney creates an inspired story unlike any you’ve experienced before. Filled with excitement, fun and incredible music from the legendary Alan Menken, Enchanted is the ultimate fish-out-of-water adventure. For princess-to-be Giselle, life is a fairy tale – until she’s banished from the animated land of Andalasia and thrust into the very unmagical, live-action world of modern-day Manhattan. When a cynical, no-nonsense divorce lawyer comes to her aid, little does he realise this joyful, wide-eyed innocent is about the enchant him. Enchanted – the musical comedy that will have your entire family under it’s spell.

p.s. What kind of girl would I be if I didn’t mention just how hot Patrick Dempsey Dr. McDreamy is?
