Movie Monday: Enchanted

This is one of those movies that crops up time and time again in gifset form on Tumblr, and after scrolling past my tenth Enchanted gifset of the day today, I figured it was about time for a rewatch.

Reasons why Enchanted is awesome:
1. Amy Adams. She's pretty much perfect.
2. The mixture of animation and live action.
3. It pretty much takes the piss out of regular Disney movies.
4. James Marsden. He's kind of fabulous.
5. Assistance from the local wildlife.
6. There's a dragon. All epic stories need a dragon.
7. Patrick Dempsey and his magical hair.
8. A six year old with a credit card as Giselle's fairy godmother.
9. The ball.
10. Susan Sarandon. She may be evil, but she's also a BAMF.
11. The songs.
12. Giselle rescuing Robert from the dragon.
13. Timothy Spall.
14. Giselle's outfits. OMG.
15. Pip the chipmunk.
16. Idina Menzel. Sadly, she doesn't sing.
17. All of Robert's "no, seriously, how do you all know the words??" stuff when people start breaking into song.
18. Pip's escape from the motel room.
19. This scene:
20. Julie Andrews as the narrator.
21. The end credits, which reference a bunch of different Disney movies.

Plus, the following quotes:
- "You...are NOT a very nice old man!"
- "Is this a big habit of yours, falling off stuff??"
- "Oh, I hope you had nice dreams!" "...I think I'm still in one."
- "He knows the song too? I've never heard this song before! What the hell is it?"
- "Would you like me to call someone for you?" "I don't think they would hear you from here."
- "Any last words before I dispatch you?" "You have GOT to be kidding me." ".......Strange words."
- "Remember, when you go out not to put too much makeup otherwise the boys will get the wrong idea and you know how they are... They're only after one thing." "What's that?" "I don't know. Nobody will tell me."
- "The pizza is breathing."
- "Thank you for taking care of my bride, peasants."
- "Now if only I can find a place to rest my head for the night." "What kind of place?" "I don't know. Maybe a nearby meadow or a hollow tree." 'A hollow tree?" "Or a house full of dwarves. I hear they're very hospitable!"
- "Where do you find live doves in New York?"

So. Thoughts?

  1. I have a couple of things to say here...

    1. About 90% of the time when you do a Movie Monday post I go...DAMN IT we should watch that on Dessert Day - and then I think but you've clearly just seen it. And then I get sad.

    2. Patrick Dempsey is clearly from the acting school of Bill Pullman's hair. I think he has a professorship there now...

    1. Patrick Dempsey is DEFINITELY from the Bill Pullman School of Acting With Your Hair. And I'm happy to watch most of these movies again and again and again. Especially this one.

  2. so you definitely made me want to watch this. strong work. my boyfriend is going to hate you :) x

  3. So, so, so much love for this movie.

    When it came out, I can't even tell you how many of my friends told me that Giselle reminded them of me. I was like, "Well, that's awesome, except I'm not ACTUALLY a princess..." Womp womp. But was pretty great that everyone associates me with a Disney princess. :)

    I was listening to "Ever, Ever After" on a playlist the other day and decided to make part of it into a quote now I have to hunt down the copyright owner.

    1. TECHNICALLY, Giselle's not a princess either! She's a girl who lives in the woods and then meets a prince and then gets transported to New York and falls in love with a divorce lawyer. So I think you're womp womp free!!


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
