Enchanted

Leon casino,


Fairy tales can come true, it can happen in a Disney film. The first ten minutes are animated as we meet stock characters with a Snow White cosmology. Then the evil queen tosses the aspiring princess down a well and she ends up in present day New York City. Enchanted has a solid cast that gives this concept a spine with arch portraits of storybook reality. It's a - repeat - Disney film so be prepared for 80-percent schmaltz, and 20-percent hilarious take offs of cartoon iconography. The best scene has the princess, Amy Adams, cleaning up a Gotham apartment with the help of rats, cockroaches, and pigeons. At one point a pigeon eats one of the cockroaches. There are several in-joke moments that register according to how much you know about Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast. Take the kids and your cell phone to pass time during the schmaltz.
