Directed by Kevin Lima

There are so many things to enjoy about this film. The best aspect of the film is that it leaves you feeling so happy by the end. 

Being a HUGE Disney fan, I loved all of the references to other Disney films that are spread throughout Enchanted. I won't go into all of them here, because there are plenty of other sites that have screen by screen comparisons. Everything from the music, plot, and shot set-up is a loving homage to the classics of Disney animation. It really makes me hope that the upcoming Princess and the Frog will be a return to this wonderful style.

Another facet of this film that deserves mentioning is the wonderful Amy Adams. She really made the film for me. Her performance as Giselle is funny and touching. Giselle's hopeful optimism (though tarnished a bit by the end of the film) is played so well by Adams. She truly deserved all of the accolades that she received for this role and I look forward to watching future performances from her.
