Tangled - Giveaway

With my permanently unbrushed hair, who better to review Tangled than moi?

The staunch feminist in me shys away from the older fairytales where the girl meets the Prince, the old woman/witch/mother/step mother dies and they live happily ever after and the underlying moral of the story is that once you've found a guy and offed your mother, you're set for life. And Rapunzel is no different... but this isn't Rapunzel, it's a reworking.

Sure, Tangled has a fairytale ending, but it's not the same. In this version Rapunzel is a smart and sassy chick who shows that even though she is faced with some pretty tough stuff, she can handle herself just fine thankyouverymuch.

Is it schmaltzy? A little, it's a fairytale so it kinda has to be. But it's also hilariously funny. I did the whole laughing-out-loud-even-though-you're-the-only-one-watching trick at half of the things Flynn says.

One of my favourite parts of the movie would have to be the "I've got a dream" song with Vladimir and his ceramic unicorns. It was stuck in my head for days!

  1. It is a hard one picking a fav Disney charactor, but I am going to have to go with Sully from Monsters Inc.
    But it is a close race for favourite... there are just to many to choose from

  2. Belle from Beauty and the Beast because she saw past the exterior monster to the good man inside.

  3. We love Buzz Lightyear and the way he states, 'to infinity and beyond!' We also dig his Spanish accent from Toy Story 3 so romantically hilarious.

  4. I loved Tangled- also enjoyed the fact that it was Zachary Levi from Chuck who did Flynn's voice- I didn't know he could sing! My favourite character is probably Belle from Beauty and the Beast. It was my favourite Disney growing up and oh, how I wanted to be her!

  5. choose my favourite Disney character? So hard! But I choose Kronk from the Emperor's New Groover (if I could choose a second I'd say Yzma, his evil boss).

    Kuzco: No! It can't be! How did you get back here before us?
    Yzma: Uh... how *did* we, Kronk?
    Kronk: Well, ya got me. By all accounts, it doesn't make sense....

  13.

Fab blog btw xox

  14. I took Jack to see Tangled. We lasted half an hour - we crept out of the cinema just as she leapt onto the grass for the first time. I was very upset to miss the movie - the kids couldn't care less because they'd already had their snacks!! So...favourite Disney character?? Just one?? Definitely Tinkerbell. Not only because she scatters fairy dust everywhere in Peter Pan, but because in Tinkerbell-the-movie, we get to know the sassy fairy behind the cute green little dress (which is actually quite provocative...) She's a spunk and a half, and I love how she makes new things out of humans' junk. Quite the little sustainable fairy!!

  15. Ooh so hard to pick just one, but I'd have to say Lightning McQueen. Purely because my (now big) little boy was in live with that movie and he spent probably close to two years randomly saying 'Speed. I am Speed.' and it was so. darned. cute.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I must say I like so many, but one of our favourites in this household is Dory from Finding Nemo - I have a memory like her and my fiancé and 2.5yo daughter think it's pretty funny!! Hehe.
    We wanted to see Tangled in the movies but wasn't sure if it had any scary parts unsuitable for a 2.5yo so have the dvd on the Christmas list! :)

  17. Donald Duck - I see some of myself in Donald Duck. He has a short temper, which I have been known to have. But overall, he has a positive outlook on life! He really 'quacks' me up!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh I am a huge Dory fan..from Finding Nemo! Just keep swimming...I am forever quoting that damn fish!!

  20. Mine is definitely Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I love that she is spunky and is not your typical "princess"/

  21. 'Tigger' for his great energy and optimism.
    The perfect balance of gusto and mischieviousness.

    Our house loves Handy Manny, his cute, smart and always has great stories!

  25. Miss 3's favorite at the moment is Cinderella. But I think mine would have to be Pinnochio with the blue fairy or Cinderella with how the fairy godmother turns the pumpkin into a carriage.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Belle from Beauty & the Beast because she saw the real beauty in Beast and loved all the characters in the story equally.

  35. So hard to narrow it down to just one. Today, I think my favourite might be Lumiere from Beauty & the Beast. So hard to resist a charming French ladies man/candlestick. :-) If you ask me tomorrow, my answer would probably be different.
