okay, against my better judgement, I'll bite. . .

"I'm sorry to say that it wasn't the solid gold, critic proof wonder that it might have bee" Actually, it is the best reviewed live-action Walt Disney pictures film in the modern history of the studio. Take a peek here: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/enchanted/ do you know how difficult it is to sc...

"All of my friends also adored the movie. At first they were all skeptical. . ." Don't get me wrong, all of us who worked on Enchanted are THRILLED with the box office for Enchanted, but we ended up hearing this a lot. People were not that interested but ended up loving it. Do you think the marketin...

Okay, since you all asked so nicely, and guessed correctly, I am indeed, Doug Short, AsP of Enchanted. And for those of you who are paying very close attention, it is true that I am not in the current credits. Disney messed up and left me off. They are working on fixing it for the DVD tho. I didn't ...

Glad everyone has enjoyed so much. Thanks for weighing in. The reviews have been such a pleasant surprise. One never wants to pay too much attention to that sort of thing. When you make movies you just hope people understand what you are trying to do, but it is rare when the film actually connects w...

I don't know anything about a digital snack tree. One version of Rapunzel started out in the "real world" and had them go to the animated world, thus bringing a real world sensibility to the traditional Disney animated princess world. When live action/animated culture clash Enchanted was greenlit, i...

Mr. Hill has some of his facts wrong again. ARGGH. But at least he's plugging the movie--so no major gripes. Anyway, about the initial script--the opening was NOT animated. A live-action fairy tale book ended the story. Someone along the way had the bright idea to make the opening animated and reall...

Jim Hill has an unusual brand of reporting. He mixes fact with speculation and creates a "news" story. This is not to say it isn't entertaining and his stories usually DO contain some kind of news. Just remember it's really just a blog. So calm down folks. You're making a mountain out of a mole hill...

Glad people are getting excited about the movie. To those scouring the web for info, thanks for posting links to sites as they pop up. As far as people concerned about "more of the same" issue, I have this to say. I think the movie is different. First of all, the comedic send up is more specific to ...
