Enchanted

Amy Adams is adorable in this sometimes shrill but overall charming riff on Disney fantasies from—oddly enough—Disney. Adams plays Giselle, a character in an animated movie searching for her Prince Charming. An evil queen (Susan Sarandon) doesn’t want her to move up in the ranks, so she banishes Giselle to modern-day Manhattan, where she winds up in the apartment of a single lawyer (a miscast Patrick Dempsey). Other characters, including a prince (James Marsden) and a chipmunk, cross over as well, and this leads to some funny moments and some musical numbers. Some of the tunes are a bit grating, and the Dempsey character is a bore, but Adams and Marsden make the film worthwhile. This will probably be the film that puts Adams over the top; I wouldn’t be surprised if sequels were on the way. Marsden has had a banner year with this and Hairspray. He has a knack for musical comedy.
