    I wish this didn't exist
    While I loved the first movie, this one was a pain to watch. Due to the bad revievws I actually avoided it for quite a while, for good reason it turns out. Not only is it sloppy, forced and pointless, somehow it can retroactively take away from the values and enchanting atmosphere of the previous film. This mess doesn't do justice to Amy Adams, she is still shining as Giselle and does everything to elevate the film, but there is just nothing to save here. The whole movie feels like that sequence when Robert is aimlessly running around looking for something worth doing, and he can barely find any meaning in anything. Enchanted was a one-of-a-kind fairytale that deserved better. Or at least to be left alone.

    And sorry but I'm just not buying the whole moody teenager plot, Morgan was literally raised by a fairytale princess, their mother/daughter relationship was well established and solidified in the first film. She is visibly struggling to act like a stereotypical rebellious teen for the plot but just can't do it convincingly. Not blaming the actress, she probably felt that the whole plot was wonky. Robert having a midlife crisis is such a cliché it hurts. The competing baker moms a lá Desperate Housewives is even bigger cliché. The songs are awkward, don't work at all, and I swear I could tell from the beginning of the song that the evil duet's whole point was to crack that bladder-joke, which killed the movie on the spot.

    Tries too hard
    Giselle was your typical animated Disney Princess until she found herself unwittingly uprooted to real-world New York, where things aren't at all like they are in Disney cartoons. However, she found love with single dad Robert, so it all ended well. Or did it? After the events of Enchanted, Disenchanted finds Giselle wondering if, perhaps, New York isn't where her Happy Ever After lies, so she, Robert, and his now teenage daughter Morgan move to an idyllic suburb. Except a) Robert now has a huge commute, b) Morgan didn't really want to move, c) PTA figurehead Malvina doesn't like seeing her power base threatened. When Edward and Nancy visit from cartoonland and gift a magic want to Giselle, we're in for some shenanigans.

    Enchanted was an unexpected delight, with Disney gently ribbing its own well-worn tropes. It worked on every level. This well-titled sequel gets there in the end, but struggles during the journey, particularly at the start. Much of the first act simply feels uncomfortable, as if the film is trying too hard. There are too many songs and, paradoxically, the only part which should feel uncomfortable - Morgan kicking against being uprooted - feels natural and solvable, largely because Morgan is so sympathetically written and portrayed.

    The later part of the film settles down and is enjoyable, with satisfactory amounts of jeopardy and resolution.

    So be ready for the ride to be a bit bumpy to start off with.
