An "Enchanted" Evening

Kevin and I went out on a date tonight. He called me at work a couple of minutes before I got off to let me know that he had dinner ready and then we're going out. I found out that "dinner ready" means that the take-out Chinese was hot and ready! After dinner we made a pit stop at Starbucks for peppermint mocha fuel and we're off to the "big city" for a movie. I've been waiting for Disney's "Enchanted" to come out for months and months and months, and it was very funny, and lovely, and just great great great! It's interesting balance between classic Disney fairytale and reality, for sure!

"Enchanted" did make me cry, but only in one spot. When the little girl and the princess were at the hair salon surrounded by a full day's worth of shopping bags, the little girl asked if this is what shopping with your mommy feels like. (The little girl's mother left the family years ago.) Visions of "shopping with mommy" really choked me up... Whew. Didn't expect those feelings to come on so strongly out of nowhere.

Anyway, if you have no idea what movie I'm talking about, here's the trailer in this first video clip.

Now, just to show how great a movie this was, this clip below is from the big budget song and dance scene. Don't watch it if you want to save the build up for the middle of your movie viewing experience.

  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVED that movie. We saw it last weekend, and I'm not a have-to-see-it-in-the-theater person (in fact, I prefer DVD). But, because I can hardly wait to see this again when its finally on DVD, I'm thinking of going back to the theatre. This is big for me. I liked it that much. Sometimes you just need a happy movie, no? :-)
