Amy Adams stars as innocent animated princess Giselle in "Enchanted," a movie that hearkens back to older films like "Mary Poppins" and "Pete's Dragon" in its blending of live-action and animated elements. Giselle is comes from a cartoon fairy tale world, and a curse sends her into the live-action world of New York City, where she is shocked by the complexities of love and the meanness of people. Several of its lavish song and dance numbers, which simultaneously honor and spoof the classics of Disney past, were nominated for Academy Awards. The charming tale is brought to life by a number of talented actors, including Patrick Dempsey as Giselle's New York rescuer, James Marsden as her charming prince and Susan Sarandon as the vindictive queen.
