Movie propaganda

The real world and the animated world collide.

A classic Disney animated fairy tale meets with the modern, live-action romantic comedy in Walt Disney Pictures' Enchanted. Featuring an all-star Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, the film follows the beautiful princess Giselle (Amy Adams) as she 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 (James Marsden) back home - she has to wonder: can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?

Theatrical report

Attention parents, especially fathers, encouraging your daughters to be Bratz will result in them becoming Fairy Princesses™. Taking them to see the movie Enchanted will have the same result. What is it with little girls and pink, frilly, frou frou dresses? Not to mention the puffy sleeves. And the sparkles. And the tiaras.

Er... not that there's anything wrong with that.

Meanwhile, Disney has come up with a hybridised animation/live-action movie that hits all the fairy tale (for the new millennium) high points. Singing, dancing, happy woodland creatures, true love's kiss, evil step-mother, magic, castles, costumes and even a production number. It's a whole lot of fun for kids and adults alike though somewhat predictable. Kudos to Amy Adams and James Marsden for being wonderfully two-dimensional in a three-d world.

The fairy tale, romance, fantasy movie Enchanted is directed by Kevin Lima and stars Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden.
