Funny: Enchanted

  • An early sign that Prince Edward is meant as a parody, when he answers Giselle's name with an impressively-hammy, "Oh...Giselle!"
    • "WE SHALL BE MARRIED IN THE MORNING!!!"
  • Nathaniel's over the top accents when he attempts to feed Giselle the poisoned apples.
  • Either "Happy Working Song", or the chipmunk charades.
    • Especially the Mood Whiplash of the pigeon EATING a cockroach (With whom he was earlier happily singing) at the end of "Happy Working Song".
    • The mere fact that the cockroaches were helping with said house cleaning. Not to mention they looked so adorable too. An exterminator would have a heart attack if he came by at the wrong time.
  • The Crowd Song Giselle initiates "That's How You Know"; all of it. Some other highlights include
    • Robert's baffled and indignant reaction to how all the back-up dancers know the words to this song Giselle made up on the spot. "I've never heard this song before!'
    • Edward's sudden appearance and getting run over by the bicyclists in the middle of singing.
    • Robert unconsciously dancing along before realizing what he's doing and looking around awkwardly.
    • The street musicians and mariachis follow Robert and Giselle even when they try rowing in the lake.
  • Edward when he refers to Robert and Morgan as "peasants."
    • "These are my friends!" *beat* "Oh." He says it so nonchalantly, like he didn't just try to kill Robert. It's so true of Disney films too.
    • His race through the apartment building too. Heck, every time Edward was on screen qualifies.
    • When Giselle explains to Edward that she's not singing because "I'm just thinking". Edward's complete bafflement over the concept of thinking is hilarious.
  • This piece of dialogue:
    Morgan: And you don't wanna wear too much make-up, because then boys get the wrong idea, and you know they're only after one thing!
    Giselle: What's that?
    Morgan: I don't know. Nobody will tell me.
    • This speech is clearly something her father told her and Morgan simply memorized it.
  • This bit of dialogue too:
    Robert: It's like you just stepped out of a Hallmark card or something.
    Giselle: Is that a bad thing?
    • The moment right after, when Robert verbally remembers he has to take Morgan to school. Morgan spreads out her hands with an impatiently bewildered look that can best be described as "Duh!".
  • Giselle making dresses out of Robert's curtains and carpets.
  • The scene where Nancy walks in when Giselle falls on top of Robert after getting out of the shower and the misunderstanding that ensues is brilliantly funny.
    • Giselle says "I was on my way to the castle to get married" and Nancy bristles "She's married!?"
  • Robert's secretary. Of note is her delivery of "The valley of contentment," which she says in a very light voice.
    • Bonus Points? Jodi Bensen ladies and gentlemen!
      • The part where they're looking at Giselle and she's just happily spinning in place for no reason.
  • Speaking of Sam: Her introduction to Giselle involves our beloved princess spitting a fish from her mouth. It Makes Sense in Context...sort of. And it's hilariously cute.
  • All the woodland friends pouring out of the coach (remind you of a certain other Disney movie perchance?) like it's a clown car in the beginning. Also, having Narissa turn into the same crone as the Evil Queen from Snow White was a pretty funny touch.
  • That is one hilarious scene when Edward is riding on the roof of an MTA New York City Transit bus. He then stabs his sword through the roof, seemingly "killing" the bus (in reality, the driver applying the brakes). Then that Large Ham driver confronts Edward, and goes really bananas once Pip gets on her head and starts imitating her gestures. Bonus points if you notice that the driver's hair is made to look like a hidden Mickey.
    • He does the whole thing under the impression the bus is some kind of monster that imprisoned everyone on board.
    Edward: The steel beast is dead, peasants, I set you all free.
  • Nathaniel popping out of the manhole and the annoyed utility crew asks him if he's looking for a beautiful princess like Edward was before him. Nathaniel replied "No. I'm looking for a prince, actually." Their dumbfounded looks cemented the scene.
    • "Right."
  • "Oh, sometimes you make me so...!" "Make you so what?" "Oh, you make me so...!" "What?!" "You make me so...!" "What?!" "ANGRY!!!" (Bursts out laughing in delight) "I'm angry. I'm angry!" (Giselle punches Robert on the arm)
  • Edward knocks on a door, revealing a tired housewife with four girls. She looks at him and says, "You're too late."
    • "My apologies."
    • And that, my dear tropers, was Judy Kuhn, the singing voice of Pocahontas.
  • Paige O'Hara (a.k.a. Belle)'s cameo in a really bad Soap Opera. Especially the way she delivers the line "How can I love a man who doesn't even like himself?" Nathaniel's reactions were pretty funny too.
    • Nathaniel and Edward's conversation after this cements it:
    Nathaniel: Sire... Do you like yourself?
    Edward: (very casually) What's not to like?
  • At one point in the scene where Edward and Nathaniel are playing with the TV, they change the channel and the audience can hear the music of what they're watching...the Pink Elephant scene from Dumbo. Nathaniel immediately asks Edward to change the channel again.
  • Morgan's reaction when Edward asks Giselle "What's a date?"
    • Watch Morgan's face throughout that scene. She looks absolutely bewildered when Edward is singing to Giselle, despite the fact that she seems to like fairy tales. You can imagine her thinking "The crazy renaissance fair actor who just tried to kill my dad with a sword is now dancing in my apartment and singing."
  • Pip trying to tell Edward that Nathaniel is working for Narissa.
  • From the "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue, where Nathaniel and Pip have become best-selling authors in New York and Andalasia, respectively.
  • Giselle seeing a statue of a large woman and genuinely telling Robert "She's beautiful." His exasperated "It's a statue!" puts it over the top.
  • Narissa delivers some excellent snark in the movie (in true Big Bad tradition).
  • "Wow! really good reception here!" doubles as a Heartwarming Moment, considering the context.
  • This quick moment between Giselle and the dw—little man:
    "Grumpy": Geez, lady, are you for real?
    Giselle: Well, I-I-I think so....
  • When Robert says he's not unhappy, "I'm angry!" to which Giselle replies, "...Angry?" (Her low tone and frown as she says it kinda comes across like, "Well, gee...that's—a bit of an overreaction....")
  • When Giselle tries to get into Robert's apartment, only for her dress to keep her from making it through the doorway. Her You Have Got to Be Kidding Me! huff and eye-roll is priceless.
  • At the end of "That's How You Know", as Nancy calls Robert to thank him for the wreath and doves, Giselle gives Robert a cute "See I told ya!" beam.
