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?
Enchanted is rated PG for some scary images and mild innuendo.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Enchanted...
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.
