Tangled – Disney’s 50th Full-Length Animated Film

Wow, just wow! We got to see Tangled at an advance screening at the Metreon in San Francisco, CA last night. I have never seen such an amazing film. This is Disney’s finest and a perfect way to celebrate their 50th full-length animated film. This is not just for the kiddies but is a movie the whole family will enjoy. It has humor, a great storyline, jaw-dropping effects, complex characters, non-stop action – all without innuendo, swearing, and mystical forces.

There were so many times we all just had to laugh out loud during the showing. My daughter is at the age she didn’t like the ‘mushy’ parts and I, dealing with PMS, was crying like a baby. My husband, surprisingly, was also raving about the film and kept pointing out parts that he particularly enjoyed. For the next couple of hours after the movie, my husband, 9-year-old daughter, and I could not stop talking about the film.

Tangled opens nationwide 11/24 in 3D. Here’s a bit more about the movie:

“When the kingdom’s most wanted—and most charming—bandit Flynn Rider (voice of Zachary Levi) hides out in a mysterious tower, he’s taken hostage by Rapunzel (voice of Mandy Moore), 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. In theaters this holiday season in Disney Digital 3D™, “Tangled” is a story of adventure, heart, humor and hair—lots of hair.”

Disclosure: My family was provided with complimentary admission to an advanced screening of Tangled to facilitate this review. The opinions expressed here are 100% my honest opinion.

  1. I loved every bit of this movie. The story, music, expressions of the characters, the voices. Yes, I also liked it that it did not have innuendo, swearing, and mystical forces. This movie proves that it’s still possible to make good movies without that. Chapeau Disney, for a job well done!

  2. Sounds like a really great movie!

  3. I can’t wait to take my daughter to see this. I hope it’s also in 2D. The 3D is a little much for her.

  4. I can’t wait to take my kids to see this too. I think my daughter Hannah (who is 6) is going to LOVE it.

  5. Okay I wasn’t sure if I’d like it from previews but your review sold me. I love that is family friendly with no swearing. This may be the first film I ever take my boys to.

  6. I REALLY want to see this, even if it’s by myself. It looks so cute, and worth it just for the 3-D look alone! :)

  7. we can’t wait to go see this sounds like so much fun

  8. sounds fab, can’t wait to see it

  9. Ooh, I keep hearing about it…I want to see it and I don’t even have kids. Thanks for your review.
