"Disney animators take on the classic Grimm Brothers story of Rapunzel (Mandy Moore), a long-locked beauty imprisoned in a secluded tower by evil hag Mother Gothel (Donna Murphy), who needs the rejuvenating powers of Rapunzel's tresses to remain young. When a bandit in the lam (Zachary Levi) helps Rapunzel escape, the old crone plots to capture her and end her budding romance with the thief in this Golden Globe nominee for Best Animated Feature."
Have I told you that my Disney boyfriend is in this movie? That's right. I've laid claim to Eugene "Hotguy" Fitzherbert!
I'm a fan of the classic Disney movies, like 'Beauty and the Beast,' 'Pocahontas,' and 'Sleeping Beauty,' but 'Tangled' reached a new level of awesome. The songs are great, the characters are so well-rounded it's not even funny, the art is cute, and the movie is hilarious when the stakes aren't so high for the characters.
Lately, as newer Disney films have been created, I've gotten a little nervous because in my mind, it's almost impossible to top the classic Disney films. But really, the newer Disney movies aren't failures at all. In this case, Disney presented a beautiful rendition of Rapunzel (unfortunately, I can't say how accurate it is to the original story... someone else will have to speak for that. I do know that they got the hair part right. That's the whole point).
If you're looking for a really cute movie that is hilarious and intense with awesome casting and characterization, this is absolutely the movie for you! If I gave my movies ratings, I would give it five frying pans.
Thanks for reading!
