Call me the man who doesn’t grow up, but we can never get too much of Disney, can we?

Enchanted is in every way… enchanting. In this part-animation, part-action comedy, we follow the fairytale of princess Giselle (Amy Adams) from the land of Andalsia who is thrust into present-day by the step mother (Susan Sarandon) of her Prince Charming Edward (James Marsden). Giselle meets a jaded lawyer (Patrick Dempsey), and changes his life. So would it be Prince Charming or Mr Handsome lawyer for a life happily ever after?

My first impression from the trailer was too sweet, too childish, and too foolish. In a way, being overly sweet, childish and foolish is the whole appeal of the movie. Right from the start, the superbly diabetic song and dance sequences and merry making with animals and birds were wicked and charming humour which pays homage to all the Disney classics.

Enchancted is Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, and Pocahontas all rolled in one, bringing out the sense of nostalgia, but likely to turn away grumpy realists.

Even if you do not like princess and poison apples, the very cute squirrel and film score from Alan Menken should save the day.

Enchanted - Success for this Disney flick wouldn’t be a fairytale.
