Enchanted: Like Elf, but With Less Green Spandex

I was watching Enchanted this weekend, and couldn't stop thinking that the movie seemed really familiar. Then I realized, I was basically watching Elf, but with more singing and fewer large men in green tights (maybe this had something to do with the fact that I'd also watched Talladega Nights that weekend, which stars Amy Adams and Will Ferrell). If I were an Olympic gymnastics judge, I would award Enchanted a bronze medal; the music and dancing are not bad (by modern movie musical standards) and Amy Adams is super adorable as the cartoon brought to life, even if she doesn't consume massive amounts of candy and make wooden toys out of furniture.
