4.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie - Blu-Ray is Pathetic Sept. 24 2011
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful new twist on a well-known fairy tale Sept. 9 2006
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ella Enchanted: friend or foe? July 9 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I've loved the book ever since i read it 4 years ago. SO naturally, when i heard about the movie, i was excited. After seeing the trailer, though, i became a little apprehensive about the changes being made to a perfect story. Despite my intuition, i forced myself to see the movie; i must tell you, i was pleasantly surprised. Although the story line is completely different from the original, the story was extremely funny, and added whimsy to the fairy tale world. Characters were cut and pasted-changing them to fit the new plot, as well as some added characters (that the story could have done without, but were added to the humor). For fans over 10- Cary Ewells from the princess bride was an extra bonus, as well as the guy from Monte Python. Although some of the scenes seemed a little Shrek-wanna-be, it made me laugh all the same. It is a completely different story being told than in the book, which allows book fans to forget the connection, and instead to just sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ella Enchanted June 28 2004
Format:DVD
I had never read Ella Enchanted, and thought the movie was very cute, and suprisingly funny! In typical Cinderella fashion, Ella is forced to put up with her two, malicious step sisters, and stepmother, who make her life difficult. Ella was given a "gift" of obedience by her fairy godmother at birth, and has to do whatever she is told. The story revolves around Ella's struggle to overcome her curse, and in doing so, assists others(the elves and giants) in overcoming their social and political problems. This movie is both witty and entertaining; i took my younger cousin and she loved it!
I read the book Ella Enchanted after seeing the movie, and did not enjoy the book half as much. I found this surprising, because i read the Harry Potter series after seeing the second movie, and enjoyed the books better than the movies.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lacking the originality and charm of the book.
This movie has more in common with Shrek than it does with the novel it's supposedly adapted from. Though it has a promising cast, it falls into lazy parody and contrived plot... Read more
