I'd not heard a bean about this movie until today, but there are posters all around my Cineworld for it, featuring James Marsden as a handsome prince so I YouTubed the trailer and it looks like the best film in the world, ever.
There's singing, there's dancing, there's cartoons, there's cute little animals, there's singing and more dancing, there's James Marsden as the most handsome prince ever, and there's Amy Adams who was absolutely amazing in Junebug as a princess and there's dragons and Susan Sarandon as an evil hag, and him from Grey's Anatomy as a hottie, and there's singing and dancing and cute animals and, fantastically, a fat black woman with sass, WHO DRIVES A BUS! And did I mention James Marsen as a hot prince who sings and dances?

I'm soooooo excited about this film, it looks so ace. It even has ACTUAL 2D DRAWN ANIMATION as opposed to CG!! Well done Disney! The songs are done by Alan Menken (Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast etc.) and Stephen Schwartz (Wicked) and it even has cameos from the voices of Ariel, Belle and Pocahontas! Also, I'm not a total girl pants but the Giselle doll is pretty! (click here)

I read that Disney closed their 2D animation division and had to hire a company set up by the fired animators to do Enchanted! In Your face!!
I absolutely love love love this film. Everybody was wonderful and it's as cute as a button! I love how she cuts her dresses out of the curtains, sings to call the local animals...I could go on. I just wish there had been a LOT more singing!
I finally saw it this morning and adored it as much as I thought I would.
Loved Julie Andrews as the narrator at the beginning, loved the animation (Timothy Spall in particular), loved Giselle's optimism in the human spirit, loved the scenes with the chipmonk (except when he was hung up on the coathanger, the poor little thing) and particularly loved James Marsden going door to door looking for Giselle. His facial expressions were priceless.
Amy Adams really is a fine actress - anyone who liked her in this should watch Junebug as well. She's absolutely heartbreaking in it.
Oh what a WONDERFUL little film. Amy Adams really was amazing, every line she had was delivered perfectly and became hilarious. Everyone one else did OK, although Susan Sarandon didn't get enough chance to shine. I also liked the lady who looked like Nelly Furtado after a heavy dose of testosterone therapy, bless her.
Highlights: Amy Adams (obviously), the happy working song, the singing and dancing in Central Park, Giselle's hair at the start of the real life bit
Lowlights: Giselle looking far worse at the ball than she had for the entire film previously, the sucky ending with the Dragon Sarandon (why did she fall? did the chipmunk just bite her? i was being offered a fruit pastle at the time). Oh and that chipmunk can feck off. I hate little comedy characters 'for the kids' when literally zero effort has been put into them.
Actually I have forgotten a lot of it already, so perhaps it wasn't a big classic for me. Or my brain is dying.
the sucky ending with the Dragon Sarandon (why did she fall? did the chipmunk just bite her?)
This chipmunk had a running 'joke' that he was fat and heavy, and if he sat on something that someone else was hanging onto (a branch, a bit of the empire state building) that thing would bow and break, and the person hanging from it would plummit to their death. Or something.
