Memorable Monologue: Ella Enchanted


Fairy tales tell, as their labels imply
Stories of magic, of creatures that fly
With giants and dragons and ogres and elves
And inanimate objects that speak for themselves
There's romance and danger and plotting of schemes
There's good guys and bad guys and some guys in-between
A fairy tale also reveals some sort of truth
The perils of choices we make in our youth
But our story today is different in theme
For our hero had no choice or so it would seem
It starts with a fairy bestowing a spell
This one's a baby named Ella of Frell.


~ Eric Idle as the Narrator in Ella Enchanted (2004)

Have you guys seen Phoebe in Wonderland? Elle Fanning gives one of the best performances I have ever seen from a child.... She was only 10!
