This is one of my favourite movies and if you're a lover of music and romance you'll really like it it. Also, it's a creative rendition of the Cinderella story, and combines music, humour and serious subject matter in such a delightful way. There are a couple of mildly offensive comments near the beginning, but they are so subtle and fleeting you don't even notice them really anyway. Anne Hathaway is a great comedic actress as well as a good singer we find out, and handsome Hugh Dancy is charming as Prince Char. It's a touching and funny story with excellent acting, although it is slightly corny in places. There are some great romantic moments and the chemistry between the two leads is excellent.

After Ella is born she is given a gift by her eccentric Fairy Godmother Lucinda so that she will always be obedient. Although this is ok when she is child, when she grows up her "gift", which is really a curse, comes to the attention of people who use it for evil intent. This is a great story to teach idioms and figurative language to kids, as Ella takes so many of these literally leading to funny situations. Ella's mother dies and her father remarries a woman with you guessed it...two daughters.

All the girls in the kingdom are in love with Prince Char and even have a fan club. When he meets Ella and then saves her life, he doesn't know what to make of the fact that Ella is not as enamoured as the other girls. Instead she sees what is wrong with the kingdom and the Elfin Restrictions put in place by his evil uncle Edgar who has taken over the throne. She also feels that Char as the heir to the throne should do something about this unfairness. Despite her original distain for the prince, Ella slowly begins to fall in love with Prince Char.

Ella Enchanted is a fun family film, but this unique and not so traditional fairy tale could have used some bonus material. Unfortunately, the blu-ray doesn't even have a menu - it just loads and plays. The visuals look good on blu-ray, and the audio is fine, but the disc itself is so bare bones that there isn't even a scene select menu or captioning. For fans, the blu-ray might be worth it, especially at a discounted price. (3 1/2 stars)

"Ella enchanted" is a fairytale with an interesting spin, that is likely to interest both children and those adults who haven't lost contact with the children inside them. The film is based on the novel of the same name written by Gail Carson Levine, although it differs from it in several points. I think that doesn't detract from the fact that this movie is very good. As a matter of fact, I consider it a plus, because due to the differences between the movie and the book you can watch the film and still get some surprises if you read the book afterwards (or vice versa).

The main character in this film is Ella of Krell (Anne Hathaway), a teenager who was given a strange "gift" by her eccentric fairy godmother (played by Vivica A. Fox) when she was born. That gift is nothing less that the "gift of obedience": everything that she is ordered to do, she automatically does. Her "gift" doesn't make life too difficult for Ella at the beginning, as only her mother and her aunt (Minnie Driver) know about it. Of course, Ella is annoyed by the fact that she always has to do what they order (and yes, that includes homework and music lessons), but they never ask her to do nothing bad.

Unfortunately, Ella's life takes a turn for the worse when her mother dies and her father Patrick Bergin) must remarry for money. She ends up having a stereotypical hateful stepmother, and stepsisters from hell. One of her stepsisters, Hattie (Lucy Punch), discovers Ella's secret, and makes more or less a slave of her. That impossible situation prompts Ella to start a quest in search of her fairy godmother, the only one who can remove her "gift" from her.

If you watch this movie, you will get lots of adventure and action, along with some interesting characters.

There's a reason that every year seems to bring at least one new adaptation of the Cinderella story - it is, indeed, an enchanting story that speaks to the heart. Who doesn't love Cinderella? I oftentimes find myself pulling for the bad guys in films, but who in the world could ever like that evil step-mother or her awful daughters? Of course, Ella Enchanted isn't your traditional fairy tale, even though all of the important elements are there - the fairy godmother, the prince, etc. Ella is not reduced to slavery by her step-mother, and she doesn't have any contact with cinders, but she does find herself effectively controlled by one of her awful new step-sisters. Anyone who has read Terry Pratchett or watched Shrek 2 knows that fairy godmothers do more harm than good, and the one in this movie (played by Vivica A. Fox) proves the point. Lucinda's gift to the baby Ella is obedience. You may think you've gotten some rotten gifts before, but the gift of obedience is the worst of the worst. Ella grows up with a strong mind and a beautiful heart, but she is helpless to refuse any request made of her. You can just imagine the kind of havoc one could wreak if one found out Ella's secret. Forbidden to tell anyone about her curse of a blessing, Ella eventually decides that she must seek out her godmother and beg her to take the gift back.

Ella sets out on her long journey in the days preceding the coronation of Prince Char (Hugh Dancy). Char is pretty much the Elvis of the realm, with young ladies in waiting breaking out into hysterics whenever he appears and, more often than not, chasing him down like hounds after a fox.
