Too much mature themes for all minors...

Some PG-rated movie with a lot of disgusting scenes... These scenes can easily harm a student's mind. This movie can manipulate people to prioritize romance over their education.

something the whole family can enjoy

watched it with the kids and grandparents, everyone loved it. Amy Adams is so great. we were afraid that the 4 year old might be bored but while many jokes went over her head, there was enough "Princess-ness" to keep her entertained and it wasn't too young for anyone in the room. good music. many moments where everyone I'm the room broke out in laughter. reminds me of Shrek in the sense that there's something for everyone. it's possible that the very end could be scary if other classic Disney villans are scary to little ones. it wasn't scary for us. One of the characters is a divorce lawyer but I don't think the kids realized what that was.

Is It Any Good?

This is a spectacularly sweet film that proves even dashing princes aren't a match for damaged single fathers. Amy Adams is charming and lovely and obviously destined to be a leading lady. As she beckons rats, pigeons, and bugs to clean Robert's Upper West Side pad, it's clear she has the sparkle to make her guileless character enchanting instead of annoying.

It's refreshing to see Disney poke a little fun at its classic fairy tales with scenes like that one; even kids who can't recognize all of Enchanted's various princess archetypes and tongue-in-cheek jokes will fall for this winning love story -- as will their parents.
