I absolutely love the movie Enchanted with Amy Adams (a flesh-eating guest star on Smallville) and Patrick Dempsey (who I remember from the teen angst movie Can't Buy Me Love back in the 80's and have been intrigued by the revival of his career as of late, and the fact that my teenage daughters find him so attractive considering he's almost my age).

Enchanted is a ridiculously far-fetched movie that I completely and thoroughly enjoyed. I didn't have to think or ponder anything, I could just relax and get caught up in the most romantic story I've seen in ages. I found myself singing along with the songs during the movie and even singing the songs the next day. I love the soundtrack.

Amy Adams portrays an animated character perfectly. Her facial expressions are amazing and her voice is so beautiful.

I especially loved the true love's kiss. So romantic. I guess I'm just a romantic at heart and loved being lost in the magic of this movie. Someday, I hope to write something as romantic.

The big production number in Central Park is a hoot. And Disney having a bit of a laugh at itself (on the way to the bank) was fun, too. What's not to like about James Marsden and Patrick Dempsey? Susan Sarandon made a fine Wicked Stepmother. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Have you seen the outtakes? Amy Adams has invented some kind of backward speech when she blows a line, and it's hilarious.

I loved that movie too. And, Can't Buy Me Love, Ahh, what memories.

I had to wrestle my 14-year-old all the way down the hall just to get him to watch the TRAILER! He loved the trailer--and utterly refused to watch the movie.

Heh, heh. Both boys are going to scout camp next week. My daughter and I are SO having an all-girl party to watch Enchanted!

Yep, that's what we did while the boys were at Scout camp.

Oh, yes, after I watched "Enchanted," I told Bob, "That's a movie I'd love to have!" and now I have it. I don't make much time for movie watching, but the very next hunting trip, I'm in there, while my guys are "out there."
