Enchanted

We went and saw Enchanted on Thanksgiving morning, which is a good time to see a movie as it turns out. Who knew?

And it's a good movie too! A light-hearted ribbing of Disney's fairy tale films ("the princess movies"), it's sweet and funny and filled with sly references. Amy Adams plays the princess like a Disneyland face character who wandered out of the park, which is exactly what is called for.

The film is extremely good natured, as you might expect from a self-parody. I'm sure that someday there will be a Disney Princess parody with more teeth, but the gentle nature of this movie doesn't hurt it at all. It's just so sunny and happy (but not in a stupid way) that you just gotta love it. And if you are a big Disney fan, you can play "spot the references" too. Myself, I was very happy to see Jodi Benson in a small role (but bigger than a cameo)!

So, it's highly recommended by me. I'm sure a lot of people on my flist have already seen it...

I actually pointed at the screen and went "That's Jodi Besson" quite loudly. I think I embarassed my mother.

I actually didn't notice Jodi in her first scene, but Beth did. I'm glad she had more scenes after that...

Looking forward to it!

Amy Adams... in Drop Dead Gorgeous, didn't she play the contestant who was always making out with her boyfriend?

If you've seen Drawn Together, what I found funny is that the voice of Princess Clara (the sometimes crude Disney princess rip-off) was voiced by the same person who did the voice of... Melody.

Did you catch Paige O'Hara (belle) and Judy Kuhn (singing voice of Pocahontas)? They were in the movie as well - though not in such obvious roles as Jodi, who I was THRILLED to see! When I saw her, I shouted "That's Ariel!"

Thank you, thank you & THANK YOU!
thank yo for your comments on this movie. i will go see it now. Its weird thinking how you see face characters, and i see face characters, especially because i work back stage and see them them in all there glory.... i'll just leave it at that. But its a cooliez idea. lol

You sent me the original BOMB (pop lunch pale). thats was awesome. I have this thing for elephants too, i should put it in my interests, but its more of a secret so maybe not. I love it. Which anime/manga is it from? and whats his name? I want the catgirl too.

I cut out the pictures of the Ariel on the packaging... that was fun to undo. Ariels looks amazing, thank you so much.

I feel bad you spent so much more on me (especially shipping), so i think i'll sent you something else. :)
