Enchanted, my Eye

For those of you who liked the movie Enchanted, you may want to stop reading now.

Earlier today, Roo suggested that I stop at the RedBox for a movie and I was happy to oblige as things are often slow here in the middle of nowhere. There were several movies that I'd heard were good, including Enchanted. So the family sat down to watch it and I was annoyed from minute one. I wanted to take out my sling shot and shoot Giselle between the eyes. They took the most annoying part of Snow White--the voice and continued on with it in this movie. You can't call me unromantic because this movie was stupid, and thus does not qualify as a romance. Don't think I'm misled that chick flicks are stellar movies that should be seen by all. A good chick flick gets a solid two stars. This movie got a negative.7529. Next gripe, there was someone in the movie that could actually sing, but did we hear her sing. No Siree, Bob. That would have been much too pleasant. Let Idina Menzel sing for goodness sakes. Not only does she have a Tony for being Elpheba in Wicked, but she's married to Taye Diggs (which I realize has nothing to do with her singing ability, but let's face it--he's hot!)

If there are any of you perky, cheery, optimistic, and annoyingly everything girls out there reading my blog, I wouldn't talk to me right now because I might shoot you between the eyes with a sling shot, or maybe I'd shoot me with the sling shot to put me out of the misery I'd be in by being with you, the aforementioned perky person.

Whoa, Nellie! Okay, I completely understand your complaints, and it wasn't my favorite movie, but please consider the following:
1. It's actually a CHILDREN'S movie. If it were solely a chick flick, I'd be right there with you assaulting people, but the inteneded audience is perky children and their perky parents.
2. James Marsden is in it. That makes up for many, many flaws. Always.

Think about it. And maybe do some deep breathing.

I hope we can still be friends because I love that movie. I love how it is Disney making fun of itself basically. I also love that the perky annoying princess by the end of the movie is a strong woman who refuses to sing and actually saves her prince (the real one who does not sing falsetto all the time!). I hope you can forgive me and my likes!

I am considering getting the movie, just to see how annoying it is. Might have to balance it out with a little Sweeny Todd, it muct be ok, even if it is rated R. . . it was a broadway musical afterall, right?
