Join us for this week's episode "Enchanted". We talk fairy tale beginnings, ol' witches, letting your 2nd head do to the thinking, prince vibes in the real world, forcing a man to use a woman's method of murder, a hot on hot Sophie's choice and why you never ever wanna get married off the first date. Does this movie have us cheering love or are we welding every manhole cover in Manhattan closed? Find out now!
Storyline :The beautiful Princess Giselle (Amy Adams) is banished by evil Queen Narissa (Susan Sarandon) 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?

This film has a killer soundtrack. We know you sing the happy working song when you are cleaning the house.
The real world and the animated world collide with these fun facts.
In January 2018, it was announced that the script for a sequel, titled "Disenchanted", was almost complete and had been in production since 2010. The sequel will deal with Giselle ten years after the events of the first movie, wondering if the life she chose is truly her "happily ever after". Amy Adams and James Marsden have announced their intention to be in it, and Patrick Dempsey has said he is open to it. On November 12th 2021, Disney+ Day, Disney announced that Disenchanted would be coming to Disney+ exclusively, in Fall 2022.
The restaurant at which Edward and Gisele have dinner is named "Bella Notte". That is the name of the song being sung while Lady and Tramp are eating spaghetti in Lady and the Tramp (1955).
The background music on the television in the hotel room is from past Disney movies.
In the scene where Edward is run over by the cyclists, James Marsden was actually hit by them for real. The cyclists were just meant to "bump" him and he would fake a fall. But Marsden didn't think it looked good, so he insisted on filming the collision for real.
This movie was conceived as far back as the 1990s and was originally going to be an R-rated deal. The first draft of the script had Giselle mistaken for a stripper.
Originally this movie was not on Disney+ but lucky for you it is now!
