Ella Enchanted (2004)

I personally don’t have anything against fairy tales. I’ve seen a hundred of them, but maybe I am tired of watching movies that are loosely based on fairy tales and/or spends the entire film making fun of them. Shrek may be the ultimate fairy tale spoof, which made it hard to get invested in Ella Enchanted. I’ve seen this all before, in one form or another. There wasn’t a new storyline here for us to get excited about, so despite another charming performance from eternal princess Anne Hathaway, I much preferred watching Princess Diaries then watch her struggle through this film. I get there was a nice message about doing the right thing and to help those less fortunate, but even on my best days, I’d have a hard time getting through this.

star rating: 3/10
