Enchanted (2012)


Sunday was the youngest sibling among her 7 sisters. her only passion was writing stories, but due to the faerie blood within her, the stories had a tendency of coming true. one day, Sunday met with a talking frog named Grumble. he asked for her stories and they became friends. everyday before they part, she would kissed him goodbye. their love for each other had grew over time, when her kiss finally transformed him back into human, none of them realized until they parted. Grumble was Prince Rumbold, unfortunately a man despised by Sunday's family.

Enchanted (2012) was a mixture of multiple fairy tales blended into one story. before the fairy tale came in, following Sunday was a pleasurable experience. but things got more and more bizarre when fairy tales were forcefully fitted into parts of the story, and that was where it lost my interest. it felt awfully disjointed, making it a painful reading experience. it would have been nice to just read about Sunday and her family, and of course her relationship with the Prince, but just rid of everyone else.

  1. Wow...that's interesting...the moment you write a story it will come true? This is like a movie by adam sandler? He tells a story and voila it comes true.
