Still shot from the movie: Enchanted.


Happily ever after seems like only a fairytale for Princess Giselle (Amy Adams) when an evil queen (Susan Sarandon) banishes her from a perfect animated world and casts her into the live-action reality of New York City. Ill-prepared to cope in this un-Enchanted land, Giselle finds a friend in a divorce lawyer (Patrick Dempsey) while she waits for a handsome prince (James Marrsden) to come to her rescue.

Why Is Enchanted Rated PG?

Arriving in New York City, this wide-eyed princess gets an introduction to a homeless man, unfriendly residents and some prostitutes. Luckily, she also meets a more convivial citizen who catches her when she falls from a perch on a billboard. Upon his arrival in the city, the sword-wielding Prince Edward holds his weapon to the neck of a man and later uses it to stab a bus. Giselle’s chipmunk friend is hung in the closet on a pant hanger, threatened with a knife and seemingly thrown into a fire. (The little critter and a dog are also shown defecating and urinating.) Characters find themselves in other perilous dilemmas involving poisoned apples, bike crashes and traffic. Later a character turns into a frightening monster that scales a high-rise building with another character in its clutches. Low-cut gowns and a shower scene, where Giselle’s animal friends conveniently maintain her modestly, are contained in the script along with some brief sexual innuendo and the infrequent use of a mild profanity.
