ThereÕs a new princess out there and sheÕs more than a bunch of sappy songs and true loveÕs first kiss. Of course, she sings a few sappy love songs and is hankering for true loveÕs first kiss, but this princess has a bit of extra pizzazz and grit Š she has to, sheÕs toughing it out on the streets of New York.

A Royal Mess

Giselle is a typical cartoon princess. SheÕs sweetness and light. She meets a handsome price who saves her in the nick of time, gets engaged and then gets in trouble. This time, though, itÕs not her evil stepmother who wants her gone; itÕs her fiancéÕs evil stepmother. Giselle meets Prince Edward and a day later they are engaged. Unfortunately, their engagement and wedding means that the current queen, Queen Narissa wonÕt be queen much longer.

But instead of bowing out graciously to make room for new, young royal blood, the evil queen has the princess tossed into a land where dreams donÕt come true and princesses donÕt always live happily ever after. Giselle is transported into the heart of New York City Š out of animation and into live action.

A Modern Fairy Tale

The modern fairy tale is a perfect blend of classic princess lore and realistic action. Giselle the clueless princess is taken in by a divorcee determined to prove true love is nothing but, well, a fairy tale. Giselle, of course, is going to work at changing his mind while waiting on her own Prince Edward to come and save her from this crazy alternative universe.

Giselle drives her new friend completely crazy as she gets him in trouble at work, in his current relationship, and not to mention inviting a few friendly rats to help clean the bathroom. Fortunately, her innocence and good nature win him over enough to keep her safe while Prince Edward navigates his part of New York to find her.

Finally, they are all together again, and what should be a nice cut and dry happily ever after Š isnÕt, of course.

Dragons, Dresses and Dreams, Oh My!

A good fairy tale isnÕt good enough unless there is a bit of extra intrigue and mystery. And there is a bit, but the ending is still pretty easy to see. What makes Enchanted so much fun isnÕt that it is so mind bending with heavy plot, but that it is just plain funny. The Prince is just as air headed as most princes are, but now heÕs in New York where it shows up big time and is hilarious.

Giselle is pretty and like to sing and dance, but gets overjoyed when she experiences anger for the first time. After all, there just isnÕt much anger in perfect cartoon lands. The blending of cartoons and real action make it especially fun because most of the movie just pokes fun at itself and the other princess movies we enjoy so much. The songs are fun and not nauseating. The jokes are funny. The story is good, and there is even a dragon to liven things up.

Overall, I donÕt see a single thing that could be better about the film Š it definitely gets my two thumbs up.
