On the day a beautiful young cartoon character named Giselle (Adams) is about to marry the handsome Prince Edward (Marsden), his evil mother (Sarandon) banishes her to real-world Manhattan where she is left to fend for herself until her prince comes to rescue her.  Luckily, she finds a nice man (Dempsey) who is willing to put out a helping hand to the poor, crazy, whacked-out, yet wonderful New York newcomer.  The premise is nothing short of brilliant, although the ending seems like the ideas ran dry on the best way to close the show.  Also, it’s great to have Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz doing a movie musical again.  The music here pulled in an unbelievable three Oscar noms.  The disc contains tons of extras including a great making-of doc.  You’ll be able to keep your kids and Disney fans busy for hours with the Blu-ray only feature of The D Files.  Here you can watch the movie with an ongoing trivia game and Disney vignettes placed throughout.
