Godmothered (2020)



Critic Consensus: More bippity boppity than boo, Godmothered tweaks fairytale conventions with just enough self-aware humor to overcome a disappointing deficit of genuine magic.

Movie Info

Set at Christmas time, "Godmothered" is a comedy about Eleanor, a young, inexperienced fairy godmother-in-training (Jillian Bell), who upon hearing that her chosen profession is facing extinction, decides to show the world that people still need fairy godmothers. Finding a mislaid letter from a 10-year-old girl in distress, Eleanor tracks her down and discovers that the girl, Mackenzie, is now a 40-year-old single mom (Isla Fisher) working at a news station in Boston. Having lost her husband several years earlier, Mackenzie has all but given up on the idea of "happily ever after," but Eleanor is bound and determined to give Mackenzie a happiness makeover, whether she likes it or not.

Sharon Maguire's holiday heartwarmer subverts conventions, adding a dash of feminism and a sprinkling of strong supporting performances from Jane Curtin and June Squibb.

A great display of Jillian Bell's imagination as an actor, and her dedication to a joke.

The film recalls the studio's once-upon-a-time hit, "Enchanted," although here, the conceit loses much of its charm.

Do we need another movie about a naïve being from a fantastical realm who, for one reason or another, lands on Earth to teach us lessons? Nope.

Where Godmothered should coast, it stumbles - swerving between unwieldy earnestness to something edgier and settling on something duller than it should be.
