Criticism of the Disney + movie Beloveds

Do we still need the fairy godmothers? That is the question with which the new proposal of the platform opens the plot Disney + for this Christmas, the película Amadrinadas. A family film that moves the universe of princess stories, magic and especially its fairy godmothers, to the epicenter of a current city, immersed in bustle and technology.

Disney + and its Christmas 2020 premieres

The película Amadrinadas seek to bring a little light and joy to the stiff and repetitive disney + catalog, in which their premieres arrive with drops and, when they arrive, they decide to charge for them, in case of Mulán.

Well, as the platform cannot be left behind when it comes to Christmas premieres, it has decided to bet this December on: several chapters of ‘Landing patrol‘-in which the protagonists are the elves of Santa Claus-; the movie ‘Noelle‘ (2019); ‘The Disney Holiday Sing Along‘packed with Christmas songs; a special of ‘High School Musical: the special holiday musical‘; and the one that occupies our criticism today, the película Amadrinadas (2o20).

Without forgetting what will be the big hit of the season, and that years ago we would have enjoyed on the movie screen … under the quality seal of Pixar The expected premiere of ‘Soul’ -This time for free for subscribers to the platform.

What is the movie Amadrinados about?

Eleanor (Jillian Bell) is a fairy godmother with a full vocation since she was little, that is why she entered the academy years ago and is preparing thoroughly for her first job. But sadly, fewer and fewer people believe in magic and fairies, and commissions to help mortals are in short supply, jeopardizing the profession.

The young and inexperienced fairy godmother decides to seek her first assignment so that the academy can resume activity. This is how our protagonist finds the letter of a 10-year-old girl named Mackenzie (Isla Fisher), requesting the help of her fairy godmother to find her “happily ever after.” The surprise will come when you discover that Mackenzie She is currently 40 years old and is a single mother of two girls, who has long since stopped believing in fairy tales …

Disney’s new ‘Enchanted’ …

Yes, we already know, many will remind you of his argument to a great extent to ‘Nice to meet you‘(2007), the one in which a princess left the world of stories to mix with our daily chaos. Of course, that one was much more fun and carefree than the one at hand, although it must be said in its favor that the Disney’s Beloved Movie + it does manage to keep audiences of all ages entertained with a story that attempts to renew the concept of “happily ever after”.

The direction of the tape

Sharon Maguire (The diaryof Bridget Jones, 2001) directs the proposal with a script by Kari Granlund and Melissa Stack. The family proposal manages to conquer the public through a light comedy tone, certain elements of fairy tales -animals that perform human functions, magic spells … -, some musical moment, an ending that returns us to the animated formulas, and above all, thanks to the interpretations of its two protagonists.

The protagonists of the film

Jillian Bell e Isla Fisher they are the true soul of the film. Jillian Bell, seasoned in the world of comedy with titles like ‘The three bad kings‘ O ‘Infiltrators at the university‘, plays here our apprentice fairy godmother, the young Eleanor. The actress knows how to give the character that touch of sympathy, spark and liveliness that the plot lacks, getting the audience interested in the story.

Isla Fisher, with a wide career behind him with films like ‘Nocturnal animals‘ O ‘Confessions of a compulsive shopper‘, he gets into the role of Mackenzie, a woman punished by life when it comes to sentimentality and who has lost all her dreams and fantasies along the way.

Also noteworthy is the small appearance of June Squibb, who plays the fairy godmother who shares a room with Eleanor. Without a doubt the funniest and coolest character in the proposal.

The movie Amadrinados is an entertaining proposal for a family Christmas afternoon.


Jillian Bell e Isla Fisher.

It is entertaining for the whole family.


It fails to achieve the originality, sympathy and charm of ‘Encantada’.

His script could have reached a greater level of depth.
