LDS Neighborhood Movies - Enchanted  

Posted by Linda Keilbart Scanlan in , , , ,

Enchanted is one of Disney's newest DVD releases. The movie is indeed enchanting! Animated fairytale characters find themselves in "reality". They bring with them their fairytale perks, ie; breaking out in song, having animals help with chores, etc. Children will recognize this film as a conglomerate of such movies as Snow White, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.

Adults will more than likely classify it as a cute, chic flick. My husband and I saw it for the first time on our Anniversary. I would not have chosen this film normally for an anniversary show, but the movie show time was convenient for our schedule. I must admit now that I would recommend it to anyone as a romantic movie to watch.

There are however a long list of inconsistencies associated with this movie.

- "Giselle rides the subway from Times Square to the Bowery, and Edward gets lunch in a deli--yet neither has any money.

- The film is clearly set during warm weather, with lots of summer foliage and no one in heavy jackets. Yet when the chipmunk breaks out of the hotel room, there is clearly snow across the street.

- When Nancy arrives at Robert's apartment to find Giselle there, Robert is in need of a shave. When he chases after Nancy as she leaves the building and gets into a taxi, he is clean-shaven. When he returns to the apartment, he has considerable beard growth again." (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0461770/goofs)

For more "goofs" you can go to http://www.imdb.com/Sections/Trivia/ and type in "Enchanted" in the search box.

This movie is rated PG for scarey images and mild innuendos. Giselle (played by Amy Adams) wears low cut dresses throughout the movie. Robert (played by Patrick Dempsey) walks in on Giselle getting out of the shower just as two pigeons cover her with a towel. Prince Edward (James Marsden) brandishes his sword and occasionally stabs inanimate objects (a bus) or threatens people gallantly in his quest for Giselle.

Over all I would recommend this movie for all ages.

Loved, loved, loved this movie. It was silly and cheesy and so romantic. We also have the soundtrack and we've all been singing to it. Fun movie!

I love the comment!! As for the "cheese" I agree. It is whimsically woven in so that the humor makes the "cheese" quite pleasing to the pallet.
