Enchanted Reviews

  • An inspired Disney fairy-tale mash-up.

    Lisa Schwarzbaum — Entertainment Weekly

  • Enchanted works its magic largely by sending up some of the very stereotypes that have long been Walt Disney Pictures' profitable stock in trade.

    Manohla Dargis — New York Times

  • Overhyped family movie covered in a cellophane shrink-wrap of corporate Disney plastic-ness.

    Peter Bradshaw — Guardian [UK]

  • The film, anchored by an entrancing performance by Amy Adams and a strong ensemble cast, is cleverly written. The situations are funny, and the story feels effortlessly entertaining.

    Claudia Puig — USA Today

  • That rare comedy that will appeal to the whole family, as it indulges in all the dreams of fairy-tale romance while making a few 21st-century adjustments.

    Ann Hornaday — Washington Post

  • The sight of Adams gliding and beaming and chirping in this movie is just about the happiest time I've had watching an actor do anything all year.

    Wesley Morris — Boston Globe

  • Enchanted isn't something to get worked up over -- not only because it's so boring, but because it can't even be bothered to adhere to its own internal logic.

    Robert Wilonsky — Village Voice

  • Cute and clever enough to enchant little girls -- not to mention their mothers.

    Elizabeth Weitzman — New York Daily News

  • A gently meta fairy tale that pokes fun at Disney's animated classics, just never too hard to hurt.

    Amy Biancolli — Houston Chronicle

  • Enchanted isn't just a culture-clash fable, it's also a throwback to one of classic Hollywood's giddiest genres: the screwball comedy.

    Chris Vognar — Dallas Morning News

  • A heart-winning musical comedy that skips lightly and sprightly from the lily pads of hope to the manhole covers of actuality, if you see what I mean. I'm not sure I do.

    Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times

  • [Amy Adams is] every Disney princess in one ebullient package.

    Michael Phillips — Chicago Tribune

  • Disney goes meta in this witty, exuberant musical comedy whose parody and nostalgia serve a sweet and affecting romance.

    Andrea Gronvall — Chicago Reader

  • This charmer of a film runs a little long and is heavy on the CGI dragon. The real special effect is Adams, who sings the Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz songs with brio, complementing her vivacious performance.

    Carrie Rickey — Philadelphia Inquirer

  • Adams is daffy and delicious in a star-making role, and the script, direction and music are spot-on.

    Colin Covert — Minneapolis Star Tribune

  • Enchanted is not a perfect movie ... But it is so thoroughly delightful when Adams is on screen you forgive its faults with a smile.

    Tom Long — Detroit News

  • When it's funny, it's good. But when it takes a turn for the heartwarming, it feels more like a Disney knockoff than a send-up.

    Kerry Lengel — Arizona Republic

  • More than lives up to its title. A full-blown musical that commutes between Disney's patented cartoon universe and the real world with cleverness and grace, this splashy production reminds one of nothing in the Disney canon so much as Mary Poppins.

    Todd McCarthy — Variety

  • Enchanted is worth seeing for Adams, and children will adore the slapstick performers, including a prominently featured CGI chipmunk.

    Kyle Smith — New York Post

  • The best Disney fantasy-musical since Mary Poppins, a hilarious, dazzling send-up of the thing that made Disney what it is today fairy-tale princesses.

    Roger Moore — Orlando Sentinel
