Buy it... if you're a sucker for Alan Menken's hopelessly positive style of writing, accentuated in this musical by the story's need for grandiose tributes to the tone of Disney's animated classics from yesteryear.

Avoid it... if you don't already maintain a healthy collection of Disney musicals in your film score collection.

Enchanted: (Alan Menken) Everyone else is doing it, so why not Disney? The original Shrek film proved that it's now cool to make fun of fairy tales, and Disney finally pokes fun at itself in Enchanted, a musical unlike any in its storied history. The film opens like any classic Disney animated tale, with a princess, a prince, and the prince's wicked mother. While the two youths decide to immediately marry and carry on with the "happily ever after" part of the equation, the evil queen mother (Susan Sarandon, no less) banishes the girl to a place where "there are no happy endings." For the princess, that means the end of the animated world and a magical transfer to real life New York, where she has absolutely no idea about how to cope. The film becomes live action cinema at this point, and the princess is assisted by a divorce attorney who is seemingly the only person who believes her story. The attorney's girlfriend isn't thrilled, though. To complicate matters, the animated prince follows into the real world on a rescue mission. Eventually, with the princess surviving the not-so-magical kingdom, the queen herself has to unleash her own real-life spells on the people of the city. The script of Enchanted is a series of in-jokes and references to previous Disney classics. The overarching style of the production imitates parts of Snow White, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast with clever moves, typically staying true to the societal mores of the earlier Disney pictures. Since the film also mimics the musical format of those classics, Enchanted allows the song and score style of such films to transfer over to both its two worlds. After himself retreating to a world of non-activity, composer Alan Menken has returned to Disney over the past four years to produce impressive scores (and songs) for a handful of terrible films. His straight score work for The Shaggy Dog in 2006 was nearly among the year's best.
