A beautiful young woman bound by a supernatural "gift" of obedience strives to break thorugh her restrictions to protect a dashing prince.

Ella, a young woman living in a storybook kingdom, is given a "gift" of absolute obedience from her fairy godmother at birth. The "gift" requiring her to do anything anyone asks her to proves to be more of a curse than a blessing, as her mother passes away and leaves her in the care of her wicked father and equally-wicked stepmother. Now a young adult, Ella must rely on her own tact and intuition to power through her gift and protect the handsome Prince Charmont from a who's-who of nefarious adversaries.

Review by anonymous (posted on 3-May-2005)

Ella Enchanted is one of the most fantastic movies I have seen in the last few years. The actors were perfect for their parts, none of them seemed out of place in the fairytale world. The storyline was full of colour and fun, with everything else in between. I could almost believe that all the places, people and creatures were real. Anne Hathaway was spectacular as Ella, I especially liked her solo at the giants wedding. Prince Char was even more gorgeous than I imagined when I read the book. Overall the film was a fantastic must see never to be forgotten.

This movie is superb when it comes to the visual effects. However, I am most seriously displeased at the plot that the movie has. I must say, as a fan of the book "Ella Enchanted" that the movie does not do it justice.
