All Movie Guide
Tangled is the latest Disney Princess-for-the-next-generation animated extravaganza, and the 50th animated feature from the studio. Unlike last year's The Princess and the Frog, where Disney stuck to its traditional hand-drawn animation and storytelling formula, Tangled takes all the familiar elements of the "princess movies" think The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and combines them with Disney's application of new technology -- CGI and 3D. The end result is a film that may not be as iconic as some of its predecessors, but is definitely a throwback to an era when Disney was the behemoth of animation. Rapunzel Mandy Moore was stolen from the palace nursery as an infant and raised by the dastardly Mother Gothel Donna Murphy, who locks her up in an enchanted tower and uses Rapunzel's hair to continuously restore her youth. Rapunzel dreams of the day when she can leave the tower and find the source of the floating stars that she sees every year on her birthday -- with her adorable and consistently loyal chameleon companion in tow. Her chance comes one day when master thief Flynn Rider Zachary Levi, seeking escape from a variety of pursuers, climbs the tower with the goal of finding a place to hide out and stash his stolen goods. Instead, he finds Rapunzel, who hides his prize and tells him that if he takes her to the source of the floating stars, she'll return his belongings. From there, it's one amazing adventure after another, with twists, turns, and a little romance. There's nothing particularly innovative about Dan Fogelman's screenplay, but it has all the heart and humor that make this a fun movie to watch. Rapunzel is the well-known fairy-tale that serves as the foundation for a story that unfolds with all of the classic Disney elements intact: a young and somewhat naïve princess, a handsome rogue to guide her, a cute animal sidekick, a witchy villain, songs, and of course a happy ending. These fairy-tale elements extend to the visual aspects of the film, from the storybook aesthetics of the setting to the expertly crafted details of the character's faces. Also, there's a certain retro vibe to Tangled. The choices for vocal casting harken back to the previous two decades, when Disney bypassed big-name stars in favor of lesser-known talent. Mandy Moore's voice though, you can argue she's the biggest name in this film is not immediately recognizable, which allows the audience to connect with Rapunzel as opposed to being distracted by a familiar voice. Even Zachary Levi's performance as Flynn Rider is charming, roguish, and, well, generic enough to represent the same feeling. Overall, Tangled is a winner. Disney has managed to acknowledge where they've been and look toward where the company is going, and they've created a film that speaks to what adults remember from Disney's hand-drawn animation days, while at the same time injecting newer technologies to keep the kids dazzled and entertained. It's charming, enjoyable, and has a heavy dose of that ol' Disney magic.

    Great!

    I loved it! My whole family thought it was amazing! Sometimes it seemed like "Flynn Rider" was...overacting? for lack of a better term, as far as talking goes. I know that might not make much sense, if you've watched the movie you know what I am talking about. But other than that, I thought it was wonderful. I would recommend this to all of my friends. Get it! Watch it! Trust me, even adults can enjoy this movie!

    One of the best Disney movies yet.

    With Disney turning out a couple more princess movies in recent times, fans of the classics (Beauty and the Beast, the Little Mermaid) are noticing the differences and conformities to recent film. The only thing? They're great differences!
    -----The music is more modern sounding, well-written, enjoyable, something you could want to memorize and pull up on YouTube. The graphics are beautiful as well, typical of Disney CG animation.
    -----Characters are layered, diverse, and easy to like or hate, depending on their villain-or-good-guy role.
    The humor is great. Hilarious, lightly snarky, can entertain anyone.
    -----Another thing I admire is how they manage to make a reasonably short movie not end too quickly, but not drag, either. The plot is well-spaced out, and characters progress really well.
    -----Worth buying. It's a movie that you get in moods to watch; Don't get tired of it so easily.
    Overall, loved it, great addition to the Disney Princess lineup and to my personal favorite movies. Really recommended!

    Prisoner Princess.

    This was an enjoyable DVD with plenty of action and excitement to thrill youth and their families. Youth ages nine to twelve will probably like this rated PG Disney DVD.

    Tangled

    Rapunzel has always been one of my fave fairytales.So to have Disney come up with a movie,a remake,was very exciting.The movie is everything you can expect from a Disney story and more,there were parts that made me feel like a kid again and others that made me feel warm and fuzzy,well there were also parts in this movie that made my heart pound because,Rapunzel and Eugene aka Flynn are so outgoing and adventurous.The scene at the dam was just spectacular and the ending,don't worry,no spoilers here!was totally unexpected and even though I have already read the graphic novel,It was still unexpected and thumbs up fro Disney at surprising me! Watching the movie was way better then the comic as the visuals in it are very stunning and real.The heart and moral of the story is really true and beautiful too.

    Loved it - A series of fantastic characters, plot, and animation able to make anyone fall in love with it!

    So, if your not familiar with the story, basically, it's Rapunzel. An old witch-woman named Mother Grethel hides a girl with very very long hair up in a tower and something happens with a prince and the "Let down your long hair, so that I may climb without a stair" bit and other. In the original story, there's some dealings with cabbages in exchanged for unborn children... or something of the sort. And, often as Disney does, they've transfixed this story of Rapunzel, the girl with ridiculously long hair(70 feet in the movie) into a bewitching story full of wonderful craftsmanship and imagination. The prince is switched out for a witty thief, Flynn Rider, who's charismatic, sarcastic, and funny as hell. Then Pascal, an equally sarcastic, lovable little chameleon who's adorable and hilarious. And-well, all the characters are just lovable and hilarious and completely well-developed in way of plot and design. And this movie's villain, Mother Grethel, has to be one of the greatest animated movie villains to date (that I can dredge to mind, anyway.)In a more serious, if not OCD manner I've watched this movie already more times than I can count. I love the animation, the characters, the music, the PERSONALITY! It makes me giggle like an idiot. And I love it. So, yeah.

    One of the Best Animated Movies of 2010!

    Tangled is the Rapunzel story. To be honest, I don't know the original story that well, other than the tower and the prince who says, "Let down your long hair." In Tangled, Rapunzel is a princess and she is locked in a tower and she does have very long hair. This hair, however, has magical properties that can heal the injured and bring youth to the decrepitude. In this case, the decrepitude is Mother Gothel, the old crone who stole Rapunzel from her royal parents and is keeping her imprisoned in the tower so that she has her own hairy fountain of youth. Our princess could get out of the tower anytime she likes, as she demonstrates later in the movie, but Gothel keeps her there by making the girl fear the outside world. This works for 18 years, but Rapunzel has a dream: every year on her birthday, she can see from her tower window a bunch of lights floating up into the sky. Unbeknownst to her, these lights are paper lanterns that her royal parents send into the sky each year to remember their missing daughter. Rapunzel wants to see these lights in person. Fortunately for her, she meets a thief by the name of Flynn who agrees to take her to see the lights in exchange for Rapunzel returning to him his stolen treasure. Hilarity ensues. Tangled is a wonderful movie and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story had a level of complexity to it that was a bit surprising, considering its target audience. It is also a very funny movie. An early scene with Rapunzel trying to hide Flynn's unconscious body had me giggling with annoying regularity. The scene and the song in the Duckling bar was hilarious. And I want a Pascal toy. I want a little toy chameleon to perch on my computer monitor. That little guy stole every scene. I love how every character in this movie is conflicted (other than the Stabbington Brothers. They're just spooky). Rapunzel is torn between loving her new freedom and going against the wishes of her "mother." Flynn is torn between following his very selfish dream and helping this girl he has just met. There are times when I think that Mother Gothel really does love Rapunzel, but she also sees her as just the means to an end: eternal life. Mandy Moore, Zachery Levi and Donna Murphy all do an excellent job in their portrayals. Even the palace horse, Maximus (the coolest horse I've seen in a movie since The Two Towers), is torn between his duty and his desire to help a very charming girl on her birthday. The animation is, of course, fantastic. It's Disney. The scene at the dam and the scene with the paper lanterns was particularly impressive. But, I keep coming back to the characters. Rapunzel's eyes seem huge for her head, but it works because she is taking in everything in the world around her with utter rapture. In short, wonderful writing, awesome animation, toe-tapping music, lots of laughs. While Toy Story 3 may have been a better written movie, I enjoyed Tangled a lot more.
