How can ANYONE not like this film? Seriously! Since its release, I've watched it once a year as tradition, plus more times when I'm down and out and under the weather, which last week, right before my hectic work week, I found myself to be. Backed by a stellar supporting cast, Amy Adams took a brilliant turn in this iconic breakthrough that will resonate with Disney lovers! That beautiful head of red hair, those big blue doe eyes, and her ability to turn the most ridiculous to most charming is a treat for both the young and the young-at-heart. Riveting, funny, smart, and full of heart, Enchanted flew to the top of my all time favorites list.

Classic Disney animation meets contemporary urban chaos when a frightened princess is banished from her magical animated homeland to modern-day New York City in a romantic comedy penned by Bill Kelly (Blast from the Past), directed by Kevin Lima (Tarzan), and featuring music by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Stephen Schwartz. Princess Giselle (Amy Adams) lives in the blissful cartoon world of Andalasia, where magical beings frolic freely and musical interludes punctuate every interaction. Though Princess Giselle is currently engaged to be married to the handsome Prince Edward (James Marsden), her fate takes a turn for the worse when the villainous Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) banishes her to the unforgiving metropolis of New York City. As the cruelty of the big city soon begins to wear down the fairy-tale exterior of the once-carefree princess, the frightened Giselle soon finds herself falling for a friendly but flawed divorce lawyer (Patrick Dempsey) whose kind compassion helps her to survive in this strange and dangerous new world.
