In the animated and Enchanted land of Andalasia, a beautiful and perky maiden, Giselle (Adams), captures the heart of her dashing prince charming, Edward (Marsden). In a desperate bid to keep the young couple apart, preserving her power, Prince Edward's step-mother, Queen Narissa (Sarandon), casts a spell that transports the lovely Giselle from her whimsical homeland to the worst place Narissa can imagine, New York City. Giselle, now a flesh-and-blood mortal, is rescued by a divorce attorney named Robert (Dempsey), who suspects she may be mentally deranged. The eternally optimistic princess is challenged in ways she could never have imagined and begins to wonder if she wants her "happily ever after" existence in Andalasia, after all. (Stacey Pendry)

Reason #114 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I appreciate the technical nature of your DVD reviews; that is, the way you rate the sound and picture quality of newly released DVDs. The reviews in most other magazines are concerned not with how good the DVD is, but with just the film itself: quality of the script, actors' performances, etc., all of which are subject to the critic's personal tastes, which may be wildly different from my own.
