    Default The perfect family movie? (Yahoo's headline re "Enchanted")

    I just don't trust reviews much anymore, especially for holiday movies.

    Two years ago my mother and I went to see The Family Stone, touted as a comedy, and the one funny scene in the movie was utilized as the trailer. We were pissed. And bored with the stupid drama. Waste of good celebrity acting too.

    Enchanted (2007) - User Reviews - Yahoo! Movies
    Users are saying "Enchanted" is a great movie to take the whole family to see.


    Anyone think they're going to see this?

    I thought The Family Stone was boresville also.

    I know for a fact that Enchanted is a perfect family movie.
    It's a perfect anything movie really, great date flick, great movie to go see with your girlfriends.

    It was so much fun to see old school animation, particularly Disney animation and have it be blended together with real life characters and settings. This will definitly go down as a Disney Classic.

    I loved it and I can't wait to see it again.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    I just read a review for Enchanted - four stars out of four. They said it was just perfect as well, that it hits every note and gets everything right.

    I'm dying to see Enchanted. Makes me wish my oldest liked movies. Perhaps hubby and I will be able to sneak away and see it at some point this weekend

    You heard right. .....and those bears had been lying out in the sun for about a week.

    Its a Wonderful Life is my perfect family movie. Nobody in my family, young or old, dislikes this movie. Its always a cornerstone of Christmas for us. I really want to see Enchanted too.

    Enchanted is really excellent. I went with my sister and my dad tonight (little bit of a throwback to when we were little kids, Disney movies were still good, and we'd always go opening weekend), and we all loved it-even though we're all adults now. It was so cute and so well done. They laugh at themselves a LOT within the movie, and they brought back some of the team that they had at the time when Disney could do no wrong (they even used Alan Menkin for the score, and the head animator is someone who was big in the animation world in the 90's).

    I saw it. I give it an A minus. A lot of fun, but not flawless.

    Still, its a good movie and I suggest you all see it

    WOW! Seeing Enchanted was a lot of fun. I sat there smiling thru the
    entire film! Making the experience even more awesome was the fact that there were only like 5 other people in the theatre! PERFECT!
