Consensus: A smart re-imagining of fairy tale tropes that's sure to delight children and adults, Enchanted features witty dialogue, sharp animation, and a star turn by Amy Adams.

In Enchanted, even the vermin whistle while they work.

Happily, the leads carry the day: James Marsden as a prince of grinning vanity, Susan Sarandon as the wicked stepmother, and, above all, Amy Adams, who, in the role of a would-be princess, finds true momentum, not just sappiness, in the farce of innocence.

Director Kevin Lima's new film Enchanted is seemingly made for all the women who grew up on fairytale endings. But growing up is perhaps the wrong word to use. Permanently infantilized might be a better term.

By the time you are reading this, the ads will already be proclaiming that Enchanted is "enchanting," and for once they'll be spot on.

Though the film is full of allusions to the Disney canon, they are generally unobtrusive echoes rather than eager satires. This is a children's movie at which adults are also welcome, not a cartoon for grownups.

In the hands of Adams, the evolution elicits as much sympathy as it does laughter, largely because she grounds every pivotal moment in wide-eyed kindness and generosity, pushing us to care about her fate.

Wall Street Journal

Like the Cinderella figure she plays in Disney's Enchanted, Amy Adams spreads a contagion of delight. The movie is great fun, but she's enchanting.

Time Out

For a movie filled with magical occurences, Enchanted commits a cardinal sin: It forgets to cast a spell on the audience.

Observer (UK)

After about half-an-hour the comic steam is dispersed by whimsy, though Timothy Spall is pretty funny as the Evil Stepmother's varlet valet.

Proof that kids movies still have it in them to be something very special.

This one was actually a surprised. Very funny and entertaining. Amy Adams is awesome and Marsden is laugh-out-loud funny. It's definitely worth watching.

A guilty pleasure for those who like being overdosed on clichés. Made me laugh heartily (read: spit my dinner onto my screen). But a lot of the "evil… More

Beautiful Disney movie about a girl called Giselle waiting for her prince. The characters cross from animation into reality. My fave scene is in the park when… More
