Movie Review: Tangled

Which Disney Princess would you like to be? Mandy Moore doesn't have to think twice as she is princess Rapunzel in “Tangled”, the newest Disney princess film. As for me? I'd love to be sleeping beauty. You sleep all day and still attract a prince, unlike others who have to cook and clean for 7 midgets or share their living space with a furry beast.

"Tangled" is based on Rapunzel, a long blonde hair fairytale princess locked away in a tower. Mandy Moore is convincing in casting the voice of the innocent and sweet Rapunzel as she is squeaky clean from tabloids in real life (would you buy it if they cast Britney Spears for the part?). "Tangled" consist everything of a typical Disney movie: the good guys looked pretty while the evil guys looked mean and ugly, plus a few dance numbers along with funny animal sidekicks.

Though the film is really adorable from beginning to end, I did find it dragged on with too many musical numbers. Not that it’s bad to have a lot of tunes, but unlike songs in “The Lion King” or “Aladdin”, the ones in “Tangled” were all mediocre and forgettable. It made the movie seem long and boring at some parts.

If you have little girls that love all things princess then this is one to take them to see. I did find this movie charming but it isn’t quite as memorable compare to some other Disney princess movies. I would suggest to wait for the DVD release or go on cheap tuesday.

I give it 3.5/5 tiaras.

  5. I think Disney peaked after The Lion King. Everything since hasn't lived up to it, in my opinion, except for the Pixar films!

  6. I always like the disney movies, and I'm not that excited about this one, but I'll probably watch it at some point. It's nice to know there will be a happy ending :)

    Have a great Thanksgiving!

    XOXO

  10. This looks cute but it's not something I would see unless I had a 3 year old daughter or niece. There hasn't really been an epic Disney movie since "Finding Nemo" I think.

  11. Thanks for the review - I'm taking my daughter to see it Friday...At least I won't go with high expectations anymore LOL ^_^ That way I won't be disappointed.

  13. Haha, good point with Sleeping Beauty. That reminds me of those girls who eat all they want and don't gain weight at all, life's not fair. I like these screen shots from the movie, it seems like a fun movie and having Mandy Moore's voice is, no doubt, a great bonus. Her voice is really beautiful.

  17. Hey =)

    Aw, I thought it would have at least been a 3 1/2 aha. I'd play Ariel! You can't beat swimming, singing, finding junk and spying all day...oh the life, ha.

  18. I laugh my ass off every time I come here. Really glad you gave such an honest review, they were going on and on about it on Breakfast Television this morning saying how it is the next biggest thing. Almost made me want to check it out. As soon as I read your comment about "Musical Numbers", I knew I would never go, lol!!

    LOVE the first song on your playlist!!

    Hope you're having a great week.

  20. I def. want to see this movie!! I actually saw Regis and Kelly's interview with Mandy Moor last Friday and my god is she SUPER annoying. She is WAY over the top and trying to hard to come off super sweet and innocent. BUT She def. has a voice that's perfect for a disney movie that's for sure.

  22. aww I so wanted to see this one! and I didn't realize that Mandy Moore was the voice of the princess so I was thinking I would love it more! but then reading that the songs could pass as forgettable :-/ I was really hoping for a great Disney classic already again!

    great review though! ;-)I'll probably go see it anyway, I have a free pass coming up!

  25. Glad it was decent enough, but still, I was hoping for something really great. I feel like we haven't had any great Disney cartoons since...Mulan, maybe? Even that wasn't very memorable, but I still liked it.

    Thanks for posting this!

  26. how come they're releasing so many new disney princess movies? what happened to the classics?? i guess they're ancient by now. haha! i'll probably watch this on DVD... my fiance would probably rather milk a cow than watch this with me. haha!

  27. I'm a sucker for disney princess movies so I will prolly go see this, if anything, for the new animation techniques for her hair. so many movies to see as of late!

  33. I don't think disney movies are the same anymore, in a way it's good because you get tired of the same stereotypical princess after a while, but I don't think it's the same thing.
    The Princess and the Frog, while cute, was boring as hell. If they hadn't been turned into cute frogs I would not have watched it to the end.

  34. I've been excited to watch this ever since I saw it's trailer. Classic disney movies are still the best though! :)

  35. The evil female cartoon characters should always be pretty. That way a guy will think twice when he meets a pretty face. Now we're programmed in childhood to think a pretty girl is also nice.

    Bah! ;P

  36. I really want to watch this movie! Thanks for the info! :)

  38. I'm kind of curious but will definitely go on cheap Tuesday now that I've read your review.

    And Beauty & the Beast is actually my favourite Disney movie but you have a good point there XD!

    RE:
    Oooh yay! So glad you got in on it before it was over! I do have a twitter but I don't update often.... :( The novelty of Twitter kind of dies when you don't have a smart phone and need to update from home, lol! But here it is anyway: http://twitter.com/pinkglassheart

    I do plan on reviving it sometime and I've also added you ^^

  42. too cute... Just because it's Disney, the commercials make me smile. Probably won't ever see it though.

    ReplyDelete
  43. this looks adorable! but i think i'd rather watch it on my laptop.

    and yes, if britney was the voice behind the character, it wouldn't be believable!

  44. I saw tangled this evening, and I loved it!
    It was sweet, hilarious, Zachary was wonderful, and a great addition to the Disney legacy.
    But Jasmine will always be my favorite princess.

  49. I find the look of this princess to be... well a bit boring. It's too bad the songs didn't stand out, I guess it'll just be another Disney movie.

    RE: Your comment on my blog~
    I didn't buy the ring, LOL. I just found it. I left it at the store, as much as I wanted it. But I know where it is, and will def be telling my future husband hahaha~

  50. i didn't plan on seeing this, but i may take my nieces and nephew over the weekend. i love the musical numbers in Disney movies, but only if they're good and memorable like virtually all the songs in The Lion King.

    thanks for the review.
