As embarrassing as it sounds, I've actually been looking forward to this for months after seeing the trailer. I am happy to say it met my expectations. Amy Adams is frickin' awesome (shocking, I know), James Marsden totally redeems himself from being Cyclops, and Patrick Dempsey is effective as the constantly puzzled real-worlder. Timothy Spall totally steals the show every time he's on camera though.
I took my girlfriend to see it, and we both adored it.
During the ballroom dance song, I teared up. It was such a sweet scene.
James Marsden looked like he was having FUN during the movie. And Amy Adams...wow!

I gave it 2 episodes, & can't get behind it. Some of it's funny, but it has none of the acerbic edge that AD has. All of the parts involving the woman & the daughter are just way too sappy for my taste. It's a shame.
