We all need a little comedy in our lives this holiday season. This year has been hard for all of us, so at least we still have good movies to lift our spirits, and believe me, this is what the movie Godmothered streaming December 4th on Disney + is going to do.
About the movie
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.

Did we like it?
Disney+ did it again. They are giving us a magical original film just in time for the Holidays.
Set at Christmas time, Godmothered follows Eleanor (Jillian Bell), a young, inexperienced fairy godmother-in-training who takes it upon herself to show the world that people still need fairy godmothers.
When she finds a mislaid letter from a 10-year-old girl in distress, Eleanor eventually tracks her down and discovers that the girl, Mackenzie (Isla Fisher), is now a 40-year-old single mum working at a news station in Boston.
So you can imagine how funny is seeing a godmother experiencing everything the "new world" has to offer and that is part of what makes the movie very funny. This movie is a great combination of holiday spirit, cuteness and humor. I really laughed at some of the things that happened.
But the best for this movie is the message. Disney has that special touch to teach us a message with a movie. We are reminded that happiness is found in the little things in life and that we should enjoy those moments. The message also help us understand that each person's happy end is unique and special.
I think this is a great movie to watch with the family. So get the popcorn ready, grab some eggnog and watch this movie this Friday, December 4th on Disney + (ok, maybe after you watch the new episode of the Mandalorian).
