1. Go see Enchanted it truly is a delightfully enchanting movie. During the movie I and everyone in our theater were laughing aloud, interacting, smiling, and we all left singing.
2. I think this movie will capture the hearts of people who loved Disney classic animation, especially in the 90s (Beauty and The Beast, Little Mermaid, Aladdin). While this movie plays homage to the original fairytales it's style is of the Mouse House success of the 90s.
3. Part of what makes Enchanted great is composer Alan Menken (Aladdin, Beauty and The Beast) writing the songs for this project. He is so talented, and the perfect composer for this project.
4. I wonder what song(s) will garner an Academy Award nomination? While Ever Ever After sung by Carrie Underwood, and even So Close sung by Jon McLaughlin seem to have the most potential, I would love to see "That's How You Know," or "Happy Working Song" make the cut.
5. Amy Adams is amazing in this film. It's as though the only reason they hadn't made this film sooner is because they hadn't found the right actresses to play Giselle.
6. Amy Adams scoring an Oscar Nomination? I would love to see it happen, but this role obviously is light and fluffy. Yet she plays the role perfectly. Cate Blanchett couldn't touch Adams mastery.
7. My friend Andrea talks about how James Marsden always plays "The Other Guy," and somehome even Prince Charming, rather Prince Edward, played by Marsden works his way into the other man role.
8. It's sad that Tony Award winner Idina Menzel didn't get her own song to sing.
9. Pip was cute...and usually that comic relief character drives me crazy. Pip was not too much, and in fact earned my sympathy.
10. I appreciated the limited pop culture references that tend to cheapen a potential "classic."
11. Rachel Covey was adorable as the 6 year old Morgan, Patrick Demsey was an okay casting decision, but in my opinion, probably the casts weak link.
12. I Hope Disney theme parks incorporate this film into it's park...especially in their parade.
