Tangled

I am a sucker for Disney/Pixar movies.  I watched Up, probably more than five times, watched Finding Nemo and Monsters, Inc. probably more than ten times, and I watched Toy Story (1, 2, and 3) so many times I lost count. Well... You get the picture.


I watched Tangled recently for the fifth time and I'm still in love with this film. If you didn't know already, Tangled is Disney's version of Rapunzel. In this version, Rapunzel was kidnapped as a baby by a wicked "old" woman and forced to live in a tower and never leave. Flynn Ryder, the most wanted thief, hides out in the tower only to be knocked unconscious by a really long haired girl with a frying pan. The tiara he stole is hidden and Rapunzel offers him a deal.  He'll get the crown back if he takes her to the "floating lights" and thus their adventure begins.

If you're unfamiliar about the story of Rapunzel, it's basically about a girl with long hair who lives in a tower.  She is held captive by a woman who yells, "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair" and then Rapunzel pulls her up to the tower. A prince falls in love with her and sees how the old woman has gained access into the tower. I have read other versions of the German fairytale. In one, the prince impregnates Rapunzel on that one visit. The old lady finds out, cuts Rapunzel's hair and kicks her out the tower.  Prince comes back, is tricked, pushed out the tower, and blinded by the thorns below.  Rapunzel gives birth to twins and she and the Prince eventually find each other months later. Of course Disney went a different direction.

If you're into Disney princesses, singing and dancing, or happily ever afters, then this is the film you need to watch!

Pascal is making you watch Tangled!

  5. I just loved the character designs, all of them. Rapunzel kind of looks (and acts) like a friend so that character would be my favorite.

  8. I never have liked the singing and dancing of the disney movies much. But this one I was able to put that aside and enjoy just the story line. It really was a good movie despite all the singing.

  19. OMGosh, I am not looking forward to it. Okay first I go to Chicago Ohara. Then I fly to Seoul which is 13 hours. And then I have a 15 hour wait to go from seoul to busan which is a 55 minute plane ride or a 4 hour drive...meaning I have to wait 15 hours for something that can be driven in 4 hours. I'm trying to contact people I know to see if I can get where I need to be faster.

  22. since I grew up during Disney's golden age of animation in the 90's I always hope their new cartoon flicks don't royally suck in comparison. I've heard good things about Tangled though....so I'll give it a shot on Netflix or something one day.

  31. I liked this movie, but the idea of kidnapping a baby and raising it as your own might be too cruel for little kids, maybe Disney should be more careful?

  32. I really like your blog. I'm not sure if you've convinced me to watch tangled, but I'm definitely following!

  33. Tangled is a classic re-telling/take on a fairytale.

  34. Too scary for kids, kidnapping and pretending to be your mother? that is insane.
