    The script is messy and chaotic.
    IN A NUTSHELL: Fifteen years after her "happily ever after" in the original Enchanted movie, Giselle questions her happiness, inadvertently turning the lives of those in the real world and Andalasia upside down in the process. The film was directed by Adam Shankman. The screenplay was written by Brigitte Hales with story writing by J. David Stem and David N. Weiss.

    I had such great hopes for this long-awaited sequel. Even though this movie was in development since 2010, it felt like it still needed time to work on it some more. The worst criticism about this movie is that of the three of us who were watching the movie together, we ALL fell asleep. Admittedly, we were all tired when we started watching the movie. In all fairness, I really need to watch this again. If I change my score, I'll let you know. What did YOU think of the movie?

    THINGS I LIKED: The returning and talented cast includes Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, and Idina Menzel.

    I've loved Amy Adams in all of her movies. She has done a great job stretching her acting chops over the years. You can see her real-life husband and daughter in the town square scene.

    Maya Rudolph made for a fun villain.

    There are plenty of Disney movie Easter eggs in the film such as three women dressed in pink, blue, and green like in Sleeping Beauty's fairy godmothers, and the sweeping broom in Fantasia. Look for Belle's and Snow White's dresses in the dress store. You'll see nods to famous scenes in Aladdin, My Fair Lady, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and so many more!

    There is plenty of singing, dancing, and magic.

    THINGS I DIDN'T LIKE: Amy Adams has red hair in real life, so why did she wear a wig? She also had a voice double for some of her songs by LC Powell. Why?

    Some of the DGI looked surprisingly bad.

    The script is messy and chaotic.

    I was disappointed that we didn't get to hear Idina Menzel sing more. Come on! It's Idina Menzel! I wish they hadn't given her bangs.

    Ultimately, seeing the lovely Giselle grow older and bored with her life isn't something many of us want to see. Instead, we want to see whimsy and magic because many people want to watch a movie to escape their own life that they're bored with.

    A lot of the humor doesn't land.

    TIPS FOR PARENTS: The movie is family-friendly, but will probably appeal more to Millennials who grow up watching the original and fell in love with the characters.

    Some bullying is portrayed Fighting with various weapons.

    This movie was amazing.
    I don't understand why people are giving such bad reviews. This movie was amazing.

    Of course, the storyline is a little basic but basic plots don't always get productions this good. Especially because I'm a disney lover, I enjoyed the characters, the plot, and the songs they composed! I feel like the actors and actresses in this movie had such a fun time making it. I also loved the little easter eggs to some other disney movies.

    Amy Adams, even up to this day, is still so graceful and elegant. Though her "split personality" isn't the best acting I've seen, I thought it was very fun watching her do this.

    I'm so glad they made this second movie!!

    Such a disappointment
    All the stars goes to Amy Adams and Maya Rudolph. It was such a pleasure to watch her as the wicked step-mother and Maya as the Queen, but other than that this movie is such a bore and a huge disappointment.

    The plot barely make sense and the colour grading is horrible. Everything shines but not in a good way. Felt cheap and just hard on the eyes.

    The costumes could be better, everything honestly could be better.

    Robert's character was wasred in this movie, the same with James Marsden. We need more of them.

    Music is meh and doesn't do much impact (only the evil queen vs step mother is memorable for me and fun to watch). Pip as a cat... again cat as a sidekick for evil character trope...

    I need to watch the original movie again to wash this movie out of my mind.

    It was okay
    Disney has been pushing out sequels for movies and sadly Enchanted was next on the list. I watched the first one for the first time recently so I'm not all too attached to the franchise but I really liked the creativity of the first one. A parody of the classic princess story. The first half of this movie was quite formulaic. Even though Morgan makes a throw away joke about it being cliché it still is. (Especially the 'meet cute' she had) I thought it was going to be a realization for Giselle that everything is not always like a fairytale but the movie took a sharp turn with that plot point which was disappointing. The ending does not make a lot of sense (trying to avoid spoilers.) But, I still think to children the target demographic for this movie it will be at least a little enjoyable especially since you probably don't need to watch the first movie to understand what is happening here, one thing I thought this movie did well. I personally quite enjoyed it and I think whoever you are reading this might enjoy it too so go watch it. (P. S I thought the songs were okay.)

    Absolutely awful and unwatchable
    Loved enchanted. This sequel was unbearable.

    45 minutes into the movie and there is no clear plot. At the 1 hour mark I got so bored and almost walked away, and wish I did.

    It didn't get better. It just got worse, and worse, and worse.

    Horrible writing, horrible story. Horrible songs, oh my god they are SO bad. And they broke out into song every 10 minutes or less. Shut up!

    And I really hate to say this but Maya Rudolph was awful. The writing was terrible and her acting didn't help. It's probably not all her fault. Her scenes just felt like one long (bad) SNL skit.

    Amy Adams did a great job and stayed true to her character. She is so lovable and a ray of rainbows and sunshine. That part is somewhat enjoyable. She's the only reason worth watching this.

    But still, please skip it. Let the original stay as a pure memory in your head. You are better off!

    I used to love the first movie - Enchanted, and now once I've watched Disenchanted I am disappointed and mad. This is one of the top 3 worst movies I've ever watched in my entire life. I know that this movies targeted audience is for younger kids, but there is literally no need for them to start singing every 2 minutes. The acting of all the characters - mostly the main character is really, really cringe. Honestly I didn't even watched to the end, the movie got so bad I had to stop it 10 minutes in. Disney should never had mad a sequel in the first place. This is just so, so, disappointing and I am really glad I didn't force myself to watch until the end. If you are planning to watch this with family, children, by yourself, etc, please don't I promise you this movie actually sucks ass.

    Very disappointed
    The family loved the first one great story very funny and a really good cast.

    Second one lacked any imagination i think a 5 year old could have written it. Story line was so weak which is a massive shame as the actors are so good usually, go back to the original ethos.... Make another just to show this was just a mistake.

    We all love Disney but this was one film that should have been written.

    I am hoping that the next National Treasure will redeem the sequels and Disney can go back to basics strong story lines and the touch of hidden adult humour they are usually good at.

    I look forward to the 3rd one if you guys get you act together.... Please .....

    Well Done! An Enchanting Sequel
    This movie was great! Sad to see all the mediocre reviews. Boo hoo that the sequel didn't give you all the feel goods that the first movie did. This movie was done just as well as the first. It was just different. At first, I thought the movie was going to be just another movie about Giselle learning how to live in our cruel, mean human world. But then it took the unexpected turn and was a really great movie! The story was clever, the acting was great, and the singing was amazing! Who knew Gabriella Baldacchino could sing so amazingly? Her voice is amazing! And we all know Idina Menzel is an amazing actress and singer, and she did not disappoint in this film! Well done!!! It was as enchanting as the first! 💕
