Ok another one now and this time I am talking about Il était une fois and The Little Mermaid.

Main characters in both films

Ariel: Like Giselle Ariel is a lovesick mermaid who dreams of being part of the human world and falls for a sailor named Eric who is a prince. She has a statue (like Giselle) of Eric and her father King Triton thinks that humans are barbarians.

Giselle: Amy Adams who sings, voices and plays this character is a dead ringer to Ariel par the way she acts and sings. She has a statue of Robert and like Ariel she is obsessed with finding true love(yep princesses they have to get what they want). Instead of Giselle being a mermaid of course she becomes a real life woman in NYC and instead of falling for a prince she falls for a divorce attorney named Robert Philip(aka Patrick Dempsey who I quote is one hottie in this movie).

The main characters l’amour interests

Ariel’s l’amour interest is Prince Eric who is an 18 an old sailor who falls for Ariel(im guessing it’s the chant voice as like Giselle her voice is enchanting) while Giselle’s real true l’amour is a single father who works as a Divorce Attorney in NYC named Robert Philip who isn’t the kind of man that would fall in l’amour with someone in a jour as he is quiet and takes life for what it is.

Every time I watch this and The Little Mermaid I always wonder did Kevin Lima hire Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey because they are dead ringers to Ariel & Eric because if toi look at these films toi will notice that they are so identical. Only difference is that Giselle’s hair colour is fraise blonde(Adams hair colour is this colour) and Patrick’s hair colour is dark brown(but its done the same style as Prince Eric’s in Enchanted).
