Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"For a movie filled with magical occurences, Enchanted commits a cardinal sin: It forgets to cast a spell on the audience."
‑ David Fear, Time Out New York
"For the first time, perhaps ever, Disney turns the reflecting mirror at itself, allowing for some inspired fun at its own expense."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
"It's the simple charm and humour of the tale that lingers in the memory."
‑ Sue Robinson, Radio Times
"Enchanted is rich in Disney iconography, the best recipient of which is Susan Sarandon as the wicked Queen. The film in general really benefits from a stellar production team that create the feeling of a classic Disney film in the real world."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"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."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"It's only when the story hits the streets of NYC and Adams starts hamming it up (much like Julie Hagerty did in 'Airplane') that we start seeing the fruits of a grand Mickey-take."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Enchanted is, in a word, enchanting. It's a clever, high-spirited romp spoofing fairy tales and the animated, musical versions of them that have been around since 1937's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs."
‑ Leah Rozen, People Magazine
"Amy Adams announces herself as a viable new commercial leading lady in Enchanted, a genial family film which finds animated fairytale characters thrust into the real world."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"It pulls out all the stops in hitting all the familiarities of the genre and spins it on its head in both a fun and intelligent way."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"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."
‑ Christopher Orr, The New Republic
"It may sound like faint praise to say that Enchanted is the movie of the year for smart and spirited 11-year-old girls. But a movie that genuinely respects that audience is not to be belittled."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"You get the sense that Lima and writer Bill Kelly barely scratched the surface of possibilities of their clever but largely unexplored gimmick."
‑ Douglas Perry, Oregonian
"Enchanted still provides a pleasant twist on Walt Disney's traditional output and has enough decent performances from its cast to raise titters and smiles from even the most grumpy movie-goers."
‑ Alex Fletcher, Digital Spy
"Snobs will hate it because of its happily ever after ending. Everyone else will love it for the exact same reason. After all, a little fantasy never hurt anyone."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
