Sharon Maguire's family comedy has a good heart and a clever central idea, but there's no shine left on this Disney+ bauble; It's all such a waste, making "Godmothered" one of the more flat-out disappointing films of the year
kids are likely to enjoy this movie either way, as it retains enough of the Disney formula; For everyone else, it's a bumpy, underwhelming ride – not deviant enough to be offensive, but too tonally inconsistent to sustain sparks
it's nowhere near as clever or inventive as Enchanted. But its breezily wholesome story will go down easily enough for family audience; What elevates Godmothered is an ending that manages to tie up the film's familiar themes in a surprisingly moving way
"Godmothered" proves to be a delight that will appeal to any "Enchanted" fan. As with that Amy Adams classic, the movie gives a cynical, real-world twist to a classic Disney trope and offers well-observed laughs and tons of heart
"Godmothered" is generic and cliched throughout, and lacks any real magic; As great as Jillian Bell is, she can't save the disappointing material; Rather than being interesting, creative, or even charming, the movie is instead a generic mess..
"Godmothered" is a campy and heartfelt family-friendly Christmas flick, but ends up feeling like an adult rom-com shoehorned into a kids movie; it's entertaining enough, but doesn't offer anything particularly special
