Godmothered Review

Godmothered Review

A young and unskilled fairy godmother that ventures out on her own to prove her worth by tracking down a young girl whose request for help was ignored.

Premieres Friday, December 4 on Disney+

As we are led to understand, the world of fairy godmothers is slowly becoming a thing of the past and Eleanor (Jillian Bell) doesn’t want any part of this. So, she is on the hunt to find a little girl whose request was ignored.

Next, we met the little girl, who, well, isn’t so little anymore. Mackenzie (Isla Fisher) is a single parent trying to balance life and family while she meets Eleanor and is terrified of her until she presents her with the letter that she sent in when she was a kid.

As the story progresses, Eleanor tries to convince Mackenzie magic is still alive and starts to intertwine with her everyday life in a charming and funny way, as we watch a ‘fairy godmother’ adapt to ordinary life.

Although we are used to seeing Jillian Bell in a more hard-nosed role, she was hilarious as lighthearted Eleanor. It was fun seeing her in this type of role, and she did fantastic within it.

In this case, the film doesn’t necessarily take any big risk or try to do anything different. It’s a very straightforward film that plays out exactly how you’d expect. Throughout the film, you laugh, smile, and sometimes even wince in like ‘did that just happen.’

In closing, Godmothered is charming, fun and the kids will enjoy this one, and for the adults, it’s not a bad watch either. Jillian Bell and Isla Fisher are funny together, which makes the film more than tolerable.

The Verdict:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Godmothered is charming and fun for the whole family.
