I saw this yesterday and, for the most part, I enjoyed it. Giselle made for a convincing 'Disney princess', Edwards was a bold if slightly vapid 'Disney prince' and Robert was the guy that you *actually* wanted to sweep you off your feet at the end of the day.

Some of the songs were very good, while some were kinda forgettable.

Some of the humour was very good, while some was kinda meh.

Overall I came away with the impression that the film was trying too hard. Where the satire rolled off the cuff with Shrek, there were quite a few places in Enchanted where it felt forced. I liked the characters and I thought the strongest moments were those when they came to the forefront... Giselle interacting with Robert's daughter... or the dance at the end where I really did feel like I was watching the sweeping, live-action rendition of those moments at the end of Beauty and the Beast or Sleeping Beauty.

Generally the film was strongest when the wink-wink, nudge-nudge Disney allusions weren't quite so in your face.
