     When I saw the previews for “Ella Enchanted,” I was very excited. I have read the book several times and it is one of my favorites. Consequently, I went to one of the first showings at my local theatre. After the first five minutes, I knew something wasn’t right. Ten minutes after that, I was ready to walk out.

Emerging from a skewed backset of loud, annoying narrators and blundering acting-impaired characters, a crude and pointless story unfolds.

Everything reeks of unrealistic events and flat, bland actors. My personal “least favorite” was by far the ogres. Described in the book as blood-thirsty, cruel and evil monsters, you might be surprised when a trundling clump of fat blue men meander onto the screen. This is just one of the horrific slumps lying in wait to destroy this movie. Even if you haven’t read Ella Enchanted, I recommend you avoid this movie.
