Who doesn't love a Cinderella story? We all like to see the triumph of nice over nasty, good over evil...Throw in a little goofy anachronism and some witty writing, and you have Ella Enchanted.

The best thing about this film is the cast. Anne Hathaway is perfect as Ella, the girl cursed with obedience: she must do whatever anyone tells her to do. Hugh Dancy is Prince Charmant...we'll see him again as Galahad later this year. Eric Idle, Joanna Lumley, Minnie Driver, Cary Elwes and (to my delight) Parminder Nagra (Jess in Bend it Like Beckham and Neela on ER) and Jimi Mistry...it's fun to watch.

Oh, it's silly: There's a mall with an escalator, there's a medieval community college, there's ogres and giants and elves (oh, my)...but it's silly fun in a Shrek meets A Knight's Tale sort of way.

Keeping in mind that it's basically a kids' movie...it's fun.

Jimi Mistry is in it?
ooh. oohoohooh.
Just found out his Mother is Irish.
It's all making sense now.

Re: head whips around...

It is...this was actually jointly made with Ireland, and filmed there as well. Minnie Driver's Irish too...when you said that, it made a lot more sense to me as well!

Re: head whips around...

I can see your point about the movie...and his tie to the Irish aspect but what I meant was his looks. heh.
He's got that nice mix going on.
