Romantic Movie Scene Feature: ‘ENCHANTED,’ Ten Years Later


No matter how old we get or how far we stray from the things of childhood (or in my case, young “adulthood”), there are always going to be those stories we’ll never cease loving. For me, one of these films is this Disney film, and so let’s look at this Enchanted romantic moment, shall we?

Call it the romantic in me, but in correlation with all of the other beautiful things and moments of this film, the best among them is the romance. Everything about it (even if, because of time framing, the “bigger picture” potential doesn’t materialize) is flawless. From that adorable first night to the romantic scene featured today, who doesn’t melt over this love story?

So close to reaching that famous happy end almost believing this one’s not pretend and now you’re beside me and look how far we’ve come so far we are, so close. – Jon McLaughlin, So Close

Today, ten years later, Enchanted still does its job: it continues to enchant me. This is why, in its anniversary year, I was thrilled to be able to take a look back and feature not just a moment from this film, but one of my favorite cinematic dance scenes ever.

SPOILERS ahead; read with caution

Ten years ago, a little film sporting Disney’s iconic, shiny type font released in theaters. On November 21st, 2007, a little story
called Enchanted opened at the box office. Now, a decade later, it’s still managing to enchant its viewers. Or it is if you’re anything
like me.  

I just recently sat down to enjoy a re-watch of this and discovered two things. The film is indeed ten years old (I’m not sure I should admit this, but… I feel old), and yes, this film still does enchant. Coupled with its anniversary, rumors of a sequel swirl (its title is rumored to be Disenchanted, and Amy Adams has discussed there being a script in interviews), so there’s no better time to revisit this film than now.
