New from The Movie Snob

Enchanted (B). I thought this looked like a cute movie from the very first preview I saw, and it delivers pretty much exactly what you would expect. The beginning is like a generic animated Disney feature—the beautiful damsel Gisele is pining for a prince charming, who suddenly appears and proposes that they get married immediately. His wicked stepmother senses a threat to her power as queen and, in disguise as an old crone, pushes Gisele down a bottomless well. Then the clever hook—Gisele emerges from a manhole in New York City as real woman (played with perfect wide-eyed innocence by Amy Adams, Junebug). A handsome but skeptical divorce lawyer takes Gisele in, while the prince, the queen, and her schlubby henchman all make their way to New York in hot pursuit. Cute antics follow. The movie sags a little in the middle, but on the whole it is good fun for the whole family.
