The beautiful princess Giselle is banished from the animated land of Andalasia by the evil queen. She finds herself in the gritty streets of the real, modern-day Manhattan. Shocked by this strange new environment that does not operate on a "happily ever after" basis, Giselle find herself adrift in a chaotic world that is badly in need of enchantment. Giselle begins to fall in love with the cynical, no-nonsense divorce lawyer who has come to her aid. Little does he realize that this joyful, wide-eyed innocent is about to enchant him.

Disney pokes fun at its own cutesy reputation in this playful satire on the fairytale formula. The story concerns Giselle, a cartoon maiden in the animated land of Andalasia, who is about to marry Prince Edward, her one true love. Edward’s wicked stepmother meanwhile, the evil sorceress Queen Narissa, schemes to block the marriage in order to keep the throne for herself. To this end she banishes Giselle to the world of reality, namely New York City, where the winsome naïf must contend with muggers, freaks, and a cynical population that no longer believes in happily ever after. It isn’t long before Giselle becomes entangled in the lives of a skeptical divorcee, his 8-year old daughter and his jealous fiancée; but when Prince Edward and his little chipmunk sidekick come looking for her things go from simply confusing to complete pandemonium... Despite the sheer absurdity of the movie’s premise there is a seductive quality to the comical proceedings that caught me off guard and had me smiling like a kid. The musical numbers are bright and lively, the allusions to Snow White and Cinderella are cleverly done, and the CGI effects are amazing....rats and cockroaches have never looked so darn cute! And yes, there is a very happy ending for all. Enchanted doesn’t try to be anything than what it is, a light and fluffy little treat. It succeeds admirably.

it is a good movie. Children will enjoy this movie.

This terrific parody of Disney Princess movies is perfect for kids aging out of the genre. James Marsden and Amy Adams are a hoot as a stereotypical fairytale prince and princess trying to cope with modern day Manhattan...while singing! One of the funniest, cleverest movies ever with several wonderful characters, and many sly in-jokes.

Two minor complaints: I like that Giselle's "rival" Nancy is not portrayed as a villain (and gets her own happy ending), but the mockery of Robert's attempt to provide strong female role models for his daughter really grated, ("A BOOK?" his daughter says in disbelief). And while the girl bonding scene between Giselle and Morgan was sweet, did it have to involve shopping at luxury stores with Daddy's gold card?

This is such an underrated film. It's a bit silly, it's funny, and it's awkward. But it's childish in the way that it has that innocence and sense of wonder at the unknown.

This movie is another of Disney's overlooked masterpieces. It's silly, it's predictable, and it's childish, but that's part of the magic. Giselle is a great character who has a lot to teach us about giving up our cynicism and remembering how to put a little magic into everything we do. The animation is beautiful and the music is super catchy. This will always be a favorite, especially for a princess lover (like me!).

Enchanted was amazing! I couldn't see all of it, but it was amazing. I did NOT like Giselle, but I loved Queen Narrisa and Prince Edward. I like wierd charachters. I think this is a must see for movies.@780826: This is good. No swearing, a scary dragon gets killed, and there is one scene where Giselle had only a bathtowel around her private parts, but otherwise, O.K.

Asking: Should I watch this movie? Is it good? Does it have swearing or lots of violence? Is it super sappy?
(if you will answer me, put @780826 at the top of your answer.)
Thanks!!!

I give it a 4/5. It just stunk for the fact that It was skipping and stopping on me. However, when I first saw the first 10 minutes of it-I was blown away, I could tell the rest was sweet, smart and funny.

A very sweet and perfect family movie. I truly recommend this movie for all ages. Amy Adams is so cute! If you love the Disney Company, you have to watch this. I had to give it five stars because it was so wonderful to watch!

It's a real shame that the library procured 63 copies of this delightful movie in the full-screen format. Like most musicals with big dance numbers, the original widescreen format is a must. Otherwise, you are missing half the movie.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: in one scene the evil queen casts a spell that changes her into a gigantic dragon. younger viewers might find this a little terrifying. but we should remind them that things like dragons and magic don't actually exist.

A classic Disney fairytale collides with modern-day New York City in a story about a fairytale princess who is sent to our world by an evil queen. Soon after her arrival, Princess Giselle begins to change her views on life and love after meeting a handsome lawyer. Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?
