I ♥ Prince Edward

Oh, wow, I laughed so hard - what a great movie!

A few thoughts:

1) Jimmy got the girl! Okay, yeah, as my brother-in-law pointed out, not the girl, a girl... but still. Idina Menzel!

2) And on that subject, why the heck didn't they have Idina sing?

3) I even enjoyed the romance, even though I was all about Edward.

ETA: 4) Did you all see the Superman Returns sign behind him while he was standing on top of the bus? LOL.

Go see Enchanted, y'all!

I thought it was really cute. We saw it on Wens - my only real critique (other than not knowing where Jimmy's character got his money to buy his lunch and pay for te hotel - and that Idina didn't sing) was the queen's motivation at the end. Once it was established Giselle wasn't going to marry Jimmy I would have preferred that scene to have 'ended' there instead of her going on. I kept going, 'wait she's getting what she wanted why is she ... ?"

But then they couldn't have had that Sleeping Beauty like scene with her turning into the dragon - but the motivation still bugged me.

But overall it was just so much fun. :D

And I think I love Jimmy even MORE now.

Motivation? Yeah, that went through my head, too, but I was too involved for it too bother me all that much. :)

And I think I love Jimmy even MORE now. That's exactly what I said to my husband when we were getting back into the car! LOL.

OK ... I guess I'm going to see this ... I wonder, will I be able to convince my 11 year girl to go with me - she acts so jaded sometimes LOL

You should - I think it pokes fun at itself enough that even a jaded 11-year old would like it!

We share a brain, Barbara! I had the same thought about Idina NOT singing!

I mean really... why? Why would you cast a Broadway actress in a film with singing and then not USE her??

Barb, I really enjoyed the movie, though I thought some was a bit much, but it's Disney... need I say more? But most likely will get the DVD when it's out, mainly for Jimmy. :)

And by the way, I got to get that book signed, and got to talk to the author for a few minutes. The author is local. The book is called Journey To The Arks: A Mission to Save Humanity by Deborah Elias. It's more of a sci-fi, but I thought I'd gave it try.

I adore over-the-top stuff, so nothing was a bit much for me! :D Definitely buying the DVD.

If you like that book, let me know. :)

Okay, that's it. My mind is made up. Beowulf and Enchanted for the movie date tomorrow. *hugs* Thanks, B.

LOL, only a Canadian would misread that... *big wink*

Yes, James Marsden is playing the part! He's goofy as hell, though, which I LOVE. Go see it in the theater if you can!

Happiness! It looked so cute, I'm glad it's good. And I'm such a Marsden fan. When I first saw the trailers, I was totally all "Prince Cyclops!"

Seriously, Marsden is my new movie crush. :D

Just saw it, loved it!

Did you all see the Superman Returns sign behind him while he was standing on top of the bus? - Yes I did and just about died laughing!

Wasn't it awesome? It's gonna be really hard for me not to go back and see it again before it leaves the theaters!

I took Veronica to see this on Saturday. I loved it! She was a little restless, she's not really into princesses; the dragon was her favorite part! Go figure. And I also totally loved Prince Edward, so cute with his Stature of Liberty hat!

Finally got around to seeing this movie back about Friday for my wedding anniversary.

The best part? When she sang "That's How You Know" in the park. It's as if the whole park came to life as Disney characters in human form, and Robert's reaction to it all was fantastic.

That's still my favorite song to sing from the movie! I love that scene. It is so much fun. You can tell everyone just had a blast making this movie.

Glad you got to see it!
