* AwardSnub: Three songs earned nominations for the Best Song Oscar. Hence, the vote got split, and "Falling Slowly" from ''Once'' won the statuette.
** Of those three songs, Music/CarrieUnderwood's "Ever Ever After" wasn't one of them.
** Several reviewers brought up Creator/AmyAdams as a possible Best Actress Oscar nominee, but she was shut out as well.
* ComedyGhetto: Amy Adams didn't get an Oscar nomination (see above), though she did get a Golden Globe nomination - for Best Actress, Musical or Comedy.
* EarWorm: Just ''try'' to get that theme song out of your head...
* EvilIsSexy: Queen Narissa
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Probably unintentional, but [[spoiler:it's A-OK to break off a long-standing relationship to marry a girl you've known a week]].
* HilariousInHindsight:
** There is a poster for ''Film/SupermanReturns'' in Times Square when Edward first arrives. Although an unintentional reference (filming for ''Enchanted'' just happened to take place while ''Returns'' was in theaters), it still served as a fun little nod to James Marsden's role in that film, and only got funnier once Amy Adams went on to play Lois Lane in ''Film/ManOfSteel''.
** And Nancy [[spoiler:marrying Edward and becoming an animated princess]] becomes this as of 2013 - her actress, Creator/IdinaMenzel, voices the 13th Disney Princess, [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Elsa]]. Additionally, [[spoiler:the ''Enchanted'' novelization reveals that Nancy eventually became Queen of Andalasia, while Elsa becomes Queen of Arendelle-the first official Disney Princess to do so. Plus, Nancy married a prince she only knew for one day, while Elsa objects to her younger sister doing the same.]]
** And another set. Giselle was nearly added to the DisneyPrincess line but then Disney realized they'd have to pay Amy Adams lifelong royalties to use her image. Fast forward to 2014 and Idina Menzel gets to be part of the line, voicing Elsa.
** Again from Idina Menzel. When she was cast, she said she felt flattered to be hired ''only'' for her acting talents. [[note]] A song for her and Creator/JamesMarsden was made but got cut [[/note]] Next time Disney hires her, they made her use her singing skills [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moSFlvxnbgk in full glory]].
** When Nancy accuses Robert of cheating on her with Giselle, Giselle seems too naive to think that such activity involves anything more serious than kissing someone other than the one you love. For Disney's adaptation of ''Theatre/IntoTheWoods'', [[spoiler:a scene of Cinderella's Prince cheating on Cinderella, with the Baker's Wife, became toned down from him seducing her, to simply him kissing her.]]
* NauseaFuel: The "Happy Working Song", especially when the rats are cleaning the toilet with toothbrushes.
* OneSceneWonder: [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Jodi Benson]] as Sam.
* StrangledByTheRedString:
** The OfficialCouple is seen as awkward by some given both of them have previous relationships.
** If you don't watch a deleted scene on the DVD, then [[spoiler:but the PairTheSpares that followed has no set up but a single line near the end.]]
*** Like many things in the movie, this trope is Lampshaded and made fun of in the beginning.
--->'''Giselle:''' Oh, it's you.
--->'''Prince Edward:''' Yes, it's me. And you are?
--->'''Giselle:''' Giselle.
--->'''Prince Edward:''' Oh, Giselle! We shall be married in the morning!
* TastesLikeDiabetes: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08NzDB_i3bw first three minutes]]. It's a parody of that kind of scene, which was quite prevalent in older Disney fairy tales.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: According to ''Globe and Mail'' they obviously hoped to provide girls in [[AudienceSurrogate the audience a surrogate]] in Morgan. Except the film didn't give her anything to do other than beam happily whenever Giselle enters the room.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The deleted scenes could have added more depth and emphasis to both [[spoiler: Nathaniel's [[HeelFaceTurn last minute]] [[RedemptionEarnsLife redemption]], as well as Edward and Nancy's LastMinuteHookup]].
* TrailerJokeDecay: The scene where Edward is run over by bicyclists mid-song is played in a large portion of the promotional media, to the point where the joke had less of a punch when the movie was released in theaters.
* UnintentionallySympathetic: The animals that helped Giselle in cleaning Robert's apartment becomes this after he and his daughter Morgan literally and figuratively kicking them out. Sure, you can't blame the two for doing that, but still, the audience can't ignore the fact that they ''cleaned'' their apartment.
