There are movies after which all of the women I know come out pushing it. Enchanted was one of them.

Their spice were not so effusive.

Enchanted—even more than Ella Enchanted, which still seems to have been the same movie, but less than the took-itself-seriously Ever After, which could have been the same movie but wasn't, occasionally to its detriment—is a GNO movie in its soul.

It may not have been strictly for little girls (or little women or women), but that's where the word of mouth has been, while it's left to Morgan and I to tell people to see The Golden Compass.

I saw Enchanted with my 43 yr old brother and his wife, and his 7 year old son and 5 yr old daughter - we all liked it a lot. For all of Lances reasons, there were no 'rave' reviews' from anyone in my family, but anyone of any age and gender can be, well, enchanted, by Amy Adams in this part. All it was missing was an equally charming male lead. As a 50 yr old long time Disney fan, I also loved all of the Disney references scattered throughout the movie.

Regarding Lance's overall point about the dearth of leading female animated characters, it is no secret that the same is true of live action movies. If adult men shy away from movies about women, is there any doubt their sons will as well?
