Songs from Enchanted

If they're going to be stuck in my head then I see no reason why they shouldn't be stuck in yours.

I keep thinking of Amy Adams as "Katie the Purse Girl" from The Office. I kind of hate how adorable she is. But seriously, this movie is worth watching if only to see how well she plays a Disney Princess.

Also???? If they're going to take the trouble of putting Idina Flipping Menzel in the movie then why the heck doesn't she get to sing, huh? Tsk tsk, people.

Idina sang the song playing at her character's wedding into the credits. I do think her character should have randomly burst into song though.

We saw this movie last weekend--first "real" movie we've seen in like a year! I thought it was totally cute and was pretty sad that Idina didn't get to sing more, although I was happy to hear her at the end, as mentioned. Also, I still can't stop laughing about the rodents and cockroaches cleaning the house bit. So funny.

Um, isn't that song at the end by Carrie Underwood? The Ever After song?

I'm curious about this movie, since it's supposed to be a "different" kind of Disney princess. I'll probably only rent it though. I'm kind of "against" the idea of Disney princesses...

I think it makes fun of all the previous Disney princesses. I loved it! I've been telling everyone to go see it.

Amy Adams is a genius. She's amazing in the movie Junebug as well -in fact, she's the only one that makes that movie watchable.

ps. The rumor is that Idina Menzel does sing a duet with James Marsden but that it was cut from the movie--maybe we'll see it in the DVD extras? If not, heads . . . will . . . roll.

What!? You're right. I just looked it up. It totally sounded like Idina. What's with Idina being in a musical but not singing? I feel slighted.

I'm moderately opposed to Disney princesses as well, but iieee is right--this kind of parodies them. It's clever and funny. I know it's immature, but I still think that squirrel, Pip (was it Pip?), was so cute and amusing.

I was about to post the music video on my blog for Savvy so she's not trying to do searches on youtube alone, so thanks. She has almost the entire song memorized now.

On a "date" night with my mom we saw this and absolutely LOVED it! And as a huge Rent/Wicked fan, I too was waiting the whole movie for Idina to sing, it was unnatural that she didn't. Like I repeatedly tell my husband it is totally natural to burst into song during your day, life should be a musical whether I am off key or not, haha!

I went with my sister in law on a whim! It really appreciated a good, clean, film, that was also funny! It is just one of those movies where you leave smiling! And yes, she was such a good princess! The cleaning the apartment scene was HILARIOUS!

This has been previewing on all my kids Disney movies for the last couple of months. I can't decide if it looks hilarious or just . . .well . . . stupid. My favorite part of the preview is when that herd of bikers runs over the doofy prince. And was that prince Cyclops in the X-Men movies? It is hard to tell when you never seen somebody's eyes.

Sorry for the verb tense/disaster in my comment.

And was that prince Cyclops in the X-Men movies?

Yes, and he was also in the much–better–than–X-Men Heights.

I liked Enchanted very much, right up until Susan Sarandon burst onto the scene in the flesh—and then transformed herself into a flabby, wet, purple dragon with horrific lines and even worse delivery. I usually love Susan Sarandon, but that was just painful.

Jer, I was still up for Susan Sarandon in the flesh--those boots were amazing--but I'm with you on the dragon.

My 7 year old daughter just watched these songs with me and now she won't stop talking about how we should go on a "Mommy- Daughter Date" to see it. I must admit though, I'm a bit tempted. It looks hilarious.
