Did you ever wonder what a typical Disney animated film would be like if it happened in the real world? (No need to point out to me that 101 Dalmatians was filmed in the real world. I have already taken that into account.) Well, Enchanted is your answer. The film is full of the typical animated themes – beautiful princess, prince charming, animal sidekick who can usually talk, and evil queen with poisonous apple. The film starts off as a typical Disney animation with a setting in a land far, far away with a princess dreaming about her prince charming with her woodland creatures. The princess gets attacked by some sort of monster and is saved by her prince charming. Director Kevin Lima flips the setting upside down sending the characters into real world New York City. The animated characters enter a world where they never had a chance…a chance to sing and dance – a theme typically found in most animated Disney films. Every opportunity to sing and dance is squandered away by an unexpected occurrence such as being run over by bicyclists. How will these characters fair in the real world and how will they return home? The plot is very predictable, and if you are over the age of 12, you will probably guess the ending halfway through the film. This film has the feeling of a parody, spoofing past Disney films. With an outstanding cast that includes Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, and Susan Sarandon including Julie Andrews adding her narration for the film, Enchanted is a film that will be enjoyed by the whole family.
