    It’s the sort of buoyant, all-ages entertainment that Hollywood has been laboring to revive in recent years (most recently with Hairspray) but hasn’t managed to get right until now, and the glue holding it all together is the incomparable Adams (an Oscar nominee for 2005’s Junebug), who gives the kind of blissful screwball performance that seemed to go out of fashion after "I Love Lucy" left the airwaves.
  2. It may sound like faint praise to say that Enchanted is the movie of the year for smart and spirited 11-year-old girls. But a movie that genuinely respects that audience is not to be belittled.
  3. The film works its magic largely by sending up, at times with a wink, at times with a hard nudge, some of the very stereotypes that have long been this company’s profitable stock in trade.

    The movie isn't a send-up or a takedown of fairy tales -- it's a fairy tale.
  5. The first half hour or so of Enchanted is brilliant.

    It is a testament to just how well Enchanted works that by the time a dragon is flying around New York City, you've forgotten all about the movie's high-concept humor and become invested in the plight of its characters instead.
  7. Given the possibilities it's not particularly inventive, but it is nice to see a comedy so affectionate with the conventions it spoofs.

    Took 6 kids, boys and girls, 4 to 14, and 2 adults. All laughed, were fully entertained. Shrek like combo of kid and adult humor. NYC used Took 6 kids, boys and girls, 4 to 14, and 2 adults. All laughed, were fully entertained. Shrek like combo of kid and adult humor. NYC used effectively. Disney pokes fun at itself. Not too scary. A pleasant surprise with actual character development.

    This is an absolute adorable movie. This movie took a fairy tale like story and modernized it. Although it changes from cartoon to real life This is an absolute adorable movie. This movie took a fairy tale like story and modernized it. Although it changes from cartoon to real life it is an enjoyable film for everyone. It was nice to see a movie that was not all about violence and sex. This a great movie for kids as well as adults. This movie filled with warmth was definitely worth my money. Expand

    I liked the Pop-Up Book blends in several scenes, but felt the movie should have made more of the "Fish Out Of Water" aspect with the film I liked the Pop-Up Book blends in several scenes, but felt the movie should have made more of the "Fish Out Of Water" aspect with the film going from animation to real -life of the two central characters. Our 8 year old grandson gave it a 5 out of 10. Maybe it's target audience is more little girls than boys, although I doubt it. Not bad at all , but largely forgettable in the end. Expand
