Enchanted continues the long tradition of Disney films. In a clever twist, this one combines some cel animation with live action, including the requisite fairy tales and musical numbers remain.

Amy Adams is perfect as Giselle, the fairy tale princess-to-be. She is both pretty and dulcet-toned enough to be a princess and plays the role with just the right amount of sweetness without becoming saccharine. Susan Sarandon, while having relatively few scenes, does an outstanding job as the antagonist. Patrick Dempsey, however, bumps me as the romantic lead. I think someone like Hugh Grant or Tom Cavanaugh would have been better cast in the role.

Anyone who liked Beauty and the Beast will probably enjoy Enchanted.
