Oh Dear.....
12 February 2004 | by JuiceKrewSee all my reviews

Indoors, not doing anything, switch on the television..channel 1 (flick)..channel 2 (flick)...what's on digital? AHHHH!!! film, Enchantment. Worth a look? Erm well overall NO!

Clue one: Main characters narrative throughout the film. It makes the original theatre narrative of harrison ford's bladerunner seem bearable (even in it's dour monotoned style)

Clue two: terrible dialogue. Initial scene on the campus had me reaching for the PS2's on switch on the other monitor. (almost relegating the film's audio to that of elevator music in my minds eye)

Clue three: Plentiful amounts of cheddar onscreen, a by-product of the constant cheesy line delivery.

The story is that of David's (main character obviously) attempts to find his way to his ambition of going to hollywood and being a filmmaker, getting the girl (the love of his life duh!), and...erm..that's it in a nutshell.

Interesting premise tho... His friends (all introduced in the first 2 minutes or so of the film) have talents that would advance their careers but only he sees it. This sets up short scenes where we see him sugessting they try to do a particular thing or take a particular path and that it would change their lives in some way. Sure enough the friends take his advice and rapidly (in the timeframe of this film anyway) find success. All accept David. As I said, interesting premise...

Poor, poor, POOR execution! Strangely enuff the film feels like a film school student's project... Constant interjectory scenes from the 'inspirational film school teacher' character trying to link filming/screenwriting concepts to our hero's life predicaments is yawn worthy. The film is also interspersed with spoofs of other films, empire strikes back, Star wars par example. All equally yawn-worthy except for... The one saving grace of the film, the final spoof scene at the very end of the film, that of the courtroom scene from 'A few good men'. I must say that this was VERY well done. So much so that it stands out from the rest of the whole film and almost jusitifies sitting thru the rest of the pap to get to it....on second thoughts..NAH.

The funny thing about it is that the film on IMDB is NOT listed as a TV movie. Hmmm... An important point since you generally know what you're getting with a TV movie. (generalisation I know)

IMHO, your time would be better spent doing something else (standout scene conceeded), such as..i dunno...trying to fix your PS2's DRE, or going for a walk.

Sorry...a twee, contrite film with no saving graces to elevate it above that of amateur status, barring the REALLY good courtroom spoof at the end.

Vented!!
