Tagline: This fairytale princess is about to meet a real Prince Charming.

The beautiful princess Giselle is banished by an evil queen from her magical, musical animated land and finds herself in the gritty reality of the streets of modern-day Manhattan. Shocked by this strange new environment that doesn't operate on a "happily ever after" basis, Giselle is now adrift in a chaotic world badly in need of enchantment. But when Giselle begins to fall in love with a charmingly flawed divorce lawyer who has come to her aid - even though she is already promised to a perfect fairy tale prince back home - she has to wonder: Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?

I picked this movie because I’m a big fan of Disney princess movies LOL

What I liked the Most? How Does She Know

What I liked the Least? I can’t think of anything

Review: It is a wonderful Disney princess movie set in both the real world & the carton world.

The live-action portion of the movie feels like your watching animation. The way that Giselle infects those around her with her innocent "Princess-esque" demeanor is really at the heart of what makes the movie so great. It was a fun modernized Cinderella tale that includes wonderful musical numbers (my favorites being So Close & How Does She Know).

I’ve enjoyed looking for the hidden Disney references lol
  • Lady & The Tramp – the Italian restaurant
  • Mary Poppins – Feed the birds only a dollar a bag, dancer in in the “That’s How You Know”
  • Beauty & The Beast – Robert’s outfit at the ball, Lumiere in the “That’s How You Know”
  • The Little Mermaid – the fish tank scene, hair brushing in the opening scene, boat scene in the “That’s How You Know”
  • Snow White – Grumpy, 2 blue diamonds, poisoned apples, magic mirror
  • General – true love’s kiss, Bus driver’s hair do, multiple live cameo’s of past voice stars
  • And many many others

I adore the happy-go-lucky Andalasia mentality. I have watched it over and over – making the attempt to watch it at least once a month as it helps keep my spirits up.

Recommended to: EVERYONE!!!!

Best Quote: “I don't know. It's just that – it’s like you escaped from a Hallmark card or something.”
