What an endearing and fun-filled adventure this turned out to be. It starts out as a cartoon, but once the princess mysteriously lands up in modern-day New York, it becomes even more fun for the whole family.
Disney have created another enchanting tale, as the young princess has to come to terms with real-life adventures. And this is where the comedy comes in, as her prince also comes to New York to find her, but she begins developing feelings for a divorced New Yorker.
The performances are wonderful, especially Amy Adams as Giselle, who plays the innocent childlike princess to perfection. And it dosen't hurt that the movie is also quite funny as well. A glorious adventure for boys and girls of any age. (4 out of 5, by Carlisle Johnson)
A classic Disney fairytale collides with modern-day New York City in a story about a fairytale princess (Amy Adams) from the past who is thrust into present-day by an evil queen (Susan Saradon).
Soon after her arrival, Princess Giselle begins to change her views on life and love after meeting a handsome lawyer (Patrick Dempsey).

This hybrid Disney offering, blending real-live action with animation, is full of good things! Narrated by Julie Andrews, it carries its own simple-but-strong storyline, while at the same time poking gentle fun at many well-known previous Disney productions.
Princess Giselle (Amy Adams) is suddenly propelled from her fairytale world of Andalasia into real life modern-day New York City, by evil Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon.) Handsome though not very bright Prince Edward (James Marsden) goes after her, to find that she has befriended divorce lawyer Robert Philip (Patrick Dempsey) and his cute 6-year-old daughter, Morgan (Rachel Covey.)
Much of the fun is in the na´ve responses the fairytale characters give to what to us would be everyday items. For example, the prince firmly believes the TV screen to be a magic mirror!
And what Disney picture can be complete without his animals? Real or cartoon, they create a kind of magic that brings out the child in every one of us.
And full marks to the director for not overdoing the musical numbers. The songs that are there are great!
