Cute Family Film

As a parent of 5, I am very selective on what my children get to watch. This film made the cut. It was cute and my children and I enjoyed the music and how it reflected aspects of classic Disney movies. There was some slight language such as “what the heck” and “idiots” used a couple times but the movie was tame enough for even my 4 year old. The animation wasn’t quite as good as the original film but that is to be expected with a sequel. The story was sweet with a different spin on the classic good vs evil. Even my 13 year old stated that she that it was much more kid friendly than the first film. We will probably be watching this one again.

Fun family movie!

My girls and I watched Enchanted when they were 7. We watched Disenchanted when they were 9. We thought It was really cute and a fun musical type movie. It teaches a valuable lesson that the grass isn’t all greener on the other side. I saw comments about language but it didn’t even phase us. My girls hear way worse language when on the radio or heck from some adult in the grocery line.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (13):

Featuring another tour-de-force performance by Adams, starring as the charming ingenue turned wicked stepmother, this sequel will please fans. Disenchanted reverses the roles of its predecessor: Instead of a cartoon princess landing in real-world New York, the princess turns her new home in the suburbs into a fairytale world and, in the process, becomes evil and risks sucking the life out of the actual magical kingdom of Andalasia. It's a clever premise -- what suburb couldn't use a little excitement? -- that allows the actors to play against character and the characters to further parody Disney tropes. By far the film's highlight is a showstopping villain sing-off between Adams and Rudolph -- two evil divas dressed to the nines and fighting over who's "badder" and should be queen. They bring PTA-mom rivalry to a whole new level.

The film has some funny lyrics about the family's move to the "magic kingdom of suburbia" and what constitutes a fairytale life. But the set-up of the story and presentation of character updates (cute little Morgan is now a sullen teen) takes a bit too long and the intro section lulls. It's only once Giselle starts to feel evil that the film picks up and the real fun begins. Her chipmunk turns into an amusingly evil fat cat ("I feel so superior!"), and Adams appears to be having a blast arguing with herself as good and bad Giselle fight over her spirit. Dempsey also looks to be enjoying himself, failing at slaying dragons and giants. But Enchanted, and now Disenchanted, is Amy Adams' show, and not even Idina Menzel's spectacular singing or Rudolph's droll eyebrow lifts can steal her limelight.
