So, moving on fifteen years from the first outing for "Giselle" (Amy Adams) et al., we return only to find that a bit of ennui has set into their idyllic lifestyle. As the saying goes - "the devil finds work for idle hands" and a careless wish plunges her, husband "Robert" (Patrick Dempsey) and their own new daughter into a series of adventures as she must race against the clock to stop disaster striking on the final toll of the midnight bell. Sadly, this has none of the engagement of the 2007 introduction to these characters. Sure, we don't expect much jeopardy with the storyline, but here it is all just a bit too contrived and there are also way too many rather bland songs that seem more a substitution for pretty weak dialogue and characterisations, than their ability to get you singing along. It does look good, and it is curious to see the entire cast reunited after the intervening years, but sadly this is little better than a television movie that might engage the youngsters for the first hour of it's over-long two hour duration, but afterwards I fear attentions may start to stray to what's going on out of the window. Pity - another sequel that we really didn't need.
