Enchanted. I saw this a month or two ago, with my fiancee and her mom. Hey, even Kevin Youkilis has a boss, ok?

This is kind of half animation/half live action mish mash of a few Disney movies involving princesses. We open with animation, a princess who longs for a mate, and a brave prince who longs for a worthy princess. They turn out to be looking for each other, but just before they can marry, the Evil Witch sends them through some sort of portal to another dimension. Live action Time Square. Full of sights, sounds, smells, and McDreamy, who happens across our princess.

She livens up his apartment and life, and McDreamy's daughter loves her. The prince seems to not understand that this world works by different rules, and hi jinx ensue. They both gallop around the city, looking for each other, charming the people of our mundane world. There is a lot of singing, and some way over the top Disney. An ending will surprise no one but please most.

Great movie for kids, and Amy Adams is terrific. I'd like to see her in more movies.
