Enchanted and Addams Family Values

Voodoo Bride and I watched two movies yesterday and today we're going to review them both.

First: Enchanted
What's it about:
It starts out as a disney animated movie where Giselle, a sweet young woman who talks with animals meets a prince who falls in love with her. His wicked Stepmother doesn't want them to marry so she arranges for Giselle to end up in modern day Manhattan and from there on the movie turns from animated to a normal movie.

What did I think:
Sugary Disney rubbage....

What did Voodoo Bride think:
A romantic movie that is not taking itself too seriously which makes it the perfect movie to watch if you want to be entertained and be sure of a happy ending for all but the bad guys.

Why should you watch it:
When you're in the mood for something light, funny, romantic and not too thought provoking, this is your movie!

Next up was:
The Addams Family Values
What is it about:
There's a new addition to the Addams family, Fester gets married and Wednesday and Pugsley go to summer camp.

What did I think:
This movie is even better then the first and has everything I want from a movie (except Zombies). The scenes at the summer camp are brilliant and I will never be able to see 'The Sound of Music' again without thinking of Wednesday smiling.

What did Voodoo Bride think:
She's still crying as it reminded her of her weddingday.

Why should you watch it:
If you like the Addams Family and don't mind that the movie had different actors then the tv series and if you like dark comedy, this is your movie.

i'm really sick of a lot of disney movies, so i am not surprised to hear about your lukewarm response to enchanted. i mean, I LOVE good children's movies and books, but disney has kinda lost it's appeal for me.

adams family values is awesome!!!! :)
