Charm Person [D&D]

Charm Person typically causes the target to view the caster as a friend and ally. So how do you handle this affect when its coming from a source which is very obviously unfriendly by nature?
Like, say, a lich? Or a kuo-toa? Or a beholder?

As a GM, how do you adjudicate this spell (or abilities similar to it) affecting a PC?
As a player, how do you role-play the effects of a charm spell?
