* Call it [[AffectionateParody Affectionate]] or IndecisiveParody, the scene when Giselle has that dance with Robert is strangely moving. It becomes crushingly sad when [[spoiler:she's alone and the disguised Narissa essentially taunts her with the knowledge she's going to marry a man she no longer loves, as a way to convince her to eat an (actually poisoned) apple with the promise that she'll forget this experience and live Happily Ever After. Giselle takes a bite...]] Of course, this ''is'' a Disney movie, and everything will work out, but perhaps it's a testament to how good AmyAdams is that it's a tearjerker anyway.

** The ambiguity of [[spoiler:Narissa's]] wording and Giselle's GenreSavvy could also make it so that she [[spoiler:knows she'll fall into eternal sleep]] and it's a sort of [[spoiler:suicide]]. Which slays me even more.

-->Robert: *whispering* ''Please...don't leave me.''
** [[spoiler: The look on Nancy's face is equally crushing. She knows it will work, and she knows the implications it has for their relationship. It's heartwarming in the sense that she's willing to step aside without a mote of spite or vindictiveness, but you can see her heart splintering all the while.]]

** [[spoiler: The look on Nancy's face is equally crushing. She knows ''knows'' it will work, and she knows ''knows'' the implications it has for their relationship. It's heartwarming in the sense that she's willing to step aside without a mote of spite or vindictiveness, but you can see her heart splintering all the while. In fact, watch her in the dancing scene leading up to it - you can see in her face the sad realization that the spark with her and Robert just isn't there anymore.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The sequence is doubly this when you realize that Creator/AmyAdams's own parents divorced ''when she was eleven''--potentially giving her tears in this scene a heart-tugging RealitySubtext....

Added DiffLines:

* Giselle bursting into tears when she learns the meaning of the word "divorce" can become this, especially for audience members who've been through a painful separation. Even if you haven't, she really calls attention to the tragedy of a once-loving relationship dissolving into divorce--and everyone else's cold reaction to her tears ''really'' tugs at the heartstrings (in the sense of "Has society truly become so desensitized to this?")

** What really did it for me was when she watched Nancy and Robert kiss and she just looked like she was going to cry.
