Tangled Review - A Disney Fairytale

5 stars
Starring: Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, and Donna Murphy
Release Date: November 24, 2010 
Running time: 1h 40m

When the kingdom's most wanted - and most charming - bandit, Flynn Rider, hides out in a mysterious tower, he's taken hostage by Rapunzel, a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair. Flynn's curious captor, who's looking for her ticket out of the tower where she's been locked away for years, strikes a deal with the handsome thief and the unlikely duo sets off on an action-packed escapade, complete with a super-cop horse, an over-protective chameleon and a gruff gang of pub thugs. Tangled is a story of adventure, heart, humor and hair -- lots of hair. 

My absolute favorite princess fairytale from Disney is Rapunzel’s story: Tangled. I won’t say it charmed me immediately, because I first watched it when I was younger, and I hated the witch, so, naturally I had a hard time watching the movie at all. My older sister loved it, though, and I never understood why. (As you can see, Mother Gothel totally spoiled the whole thing for me).

But, not too long ago, it was on regular T.V., so the whole family agreed to watching it again. Boy, am I glad we did! I fell in love with it! Surprised? So was I!                                                        

Tangled is charming, energetic, magical, funny, sweet, and romantic. It has all the elements to make the perfect Disney princess movie. I even prefer it over Beauty and the Beast or Cinderella! *Shock* I just think it's such a great movie!

I love Flynn Rider (a.k.a Eugene), played by Zachary Levi. His humorous attitude, smolder, and the mishaps that befall him never fail to make me laugh. Disney really hit a home run when they created him. To me, Flynn is one of the most memorable Disney heroes to ever come on screen. His incredible sacrifice of giving his life to save Rapunzel from slavery showed his unsurmountable love for her. He’s definitely a ‘swoon worthy’ Disney prince. 

Rapunzel, played by Mandy Moore, is beautiful, sweet, spunky, independent, and absolutely charming. She’s a brilliant Disney princess, with a huge heart, big dreams, and a head full of hair - lots and lots of hair. Again, she is one of the most memorable, and best, Disney princesses of all time. Plus, Rapunzel has one of the prettiest voices - I’ll enjoy getting to go back to the movie time and time again to listen to the music. (Or YouTube works too…)

Tangled has the feel of a classic Disney princess movie - the characters, the setting, the story, the songs. The bright colors and wonderful animation make it a really fun movie to watch over and over again. 

Tangled is a beautiful masterpiece - one of the best Disney movies I’ve seen yet! I adore it and the characters therein. 

But, sadly, they just can't get Flynn's nose right... :)
