Ella Enchanted

Ella Enchanted There are more than a few similarities between but Anne Hathaway (“The Princess Diaries”) steals all thunder away from Julia Stiles. This loose variation on “Cinderella” finds medieval "Ella of Frell" the recipient of a spell from her flaky fairy Godmother (Vivica A. Fox) that makes her obedient to any command she’s given. With the help of Prince Charmont (Hugh Dancy) and an elf called Slannen (Aiden McArdle), Ella journeys through a dangerous countryside filled with ogres and giants to have her Godmother reverse the spell. Love soon blossoms betwixt Ella and the Prince whose uncle, Prince Regent Edgar (Cary Elwes), contrives to make Ella assassinate. Anne Hathaway is the cheery spark in this glitzy girl’s fantasy story from screenwriters Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith (“Legally Blonde”).
Rated PG. 95 mins. (C+) (Two Stars)
