this is really one of my favorite Disney movies, because the characters are so funny and the horse especially! Also love the frying pan parts, totally hilarious! This is a must see. The only thing I didn't like about the movie were some of the singing parts, they got kind of annoying, but overall I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone!!

Background:

Tangled has its origins from the German fairy tale Rapunzel by the Brothers Grimm.
It was first published in 1812 as part of a collection of children's tales. It is believed that this story was an adaptation from a fairy tale called Persinette by Charlotte-Rose de Caumont de La Force which was originally published in 1698. It is a story that has been beaten to a pulp, and is best know for the line: "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair".

Even further back, this story may seem to be a modified feminized version of the Biblical story of Samson as related to in the book of Judges chapter 13. Here because Samson was a Nazarite a razor was never allowed to touch his hair.

Marketing and Sales:

This film was originally titled and marketed as Rapunzel, however, at the last minute the name was changed to Tangled. It is the second most expensive film ever made and most expensive animated film ever made with a budget of $260 million. Tangled is also notable for being the third-highest grossing animated film in the Disney animated canon (unadjusted for inflation), behind The Lion King ($783,841,776) and Aladdin ($504,050,219).

Overview:

Rapunzel (voiced by Mandy Moore) is just about to turn 18 years old. She wants a special gift, to go outside of the tower that she has been in for her entire life. Her mother, Mother Gothel (voiced by Donna Murphy) buntly refuses. As an alternative, she asks for more paint (she paints as one of her many past times in the tower). Mother Gothel agrees to go for it, but it's a 3-days journey away.

While she is away, Rapunzel manages to strike up a bargain with Flynn Rider, a thief on the run (voiced by Zachery Levi). At this point her voyage to the outside world begins.

Rating:

It is quite surprising that this 100 minute animated feature has been given a rating of PG instead of G. In my opinion this may be due to the emotional and psychological content that Mother Gothel generates by her deceptive and manipulative relationship with Rapunzel. (since there is no nudity or offensive language in this film)

Plot:

Gothel observes a single drop of pure sunlight hit the ground, creating a magical flower with the ability to heal the sick and injured, as well as keep someone young by singing to it. Centuries past as she maintains her youth. Until the pregnant queen of a nearby kingdom gets sick. Her guards manage to retrieve the flower and make a broth out of it. The queen is healed, however, as a side-effect, her daugther is born with hair with the same magical properties.

Gothel realises this and kidnaps the child and raises her as her own. But, every year on Rapunzel's birthday, the kingdom sends thousands of floating lanterns into the sky longing for their lost princess to return. Rapunzel desires to find the source of these lights a theit true purpose.

Conclusion:

This is an excellent family film, with lots of musical content as well as humor. Highly recommended.

I hadn't seen this movie when it was in theaters and had always wanted to see it, so when I saw that it was an Amazon Instant movie I rented it right away. It was so easy to rent and watch and I really loved the story and characters. Overall fun time.

Tangled is a really nice, wonderful movie which both kids and adults will enjoy. I was, however, disappointed with the bonus features on the blu-ray disc. Very few, short, and not at all interesting or informative. A first for Disney movies as far as I can tell.

This movie arrived FAST so we were really happy about that.

It was just SO well done! We are older, and are looking for some sophistication with our movies and this one was a hit with everybody watching that night, young and old.

I was never familiar with the legend of Rapunzel, until 2 of my granddaughters introduced me to this wonderful Disney rendition on a Winter's weekend. What great storytelling. Disney did not drop the ball here. but have they ever ?

Tangled brings a fresh excitement to Disney Animation, reminiscent of the heyday of "Little Mermaid" "Aladdin" and "The Lion King". Seriously funny with whiplash character-driven jokes flying with fast-paced story telling that's moved ahead by the dazzling songs.

Disney never disappoints! Or, at least, that's what I'm rediscovering now that my girls are getting at the age of watching a film all the way through. While "Tangled" doesn't surpass "Toy Story 3," it comes in a close second. Especially among the animated fare this year. Super-cute Repunzel is a welcome princess to join the ranks of Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Ariel, Tiana, Jasmine, Mulan and Pocahontas (can't you tell I have two young daughters?). There's plenty of romance for the girls, action for the boys and laughs for everyone! The music is OK (not as good as "Princess and the Frog"), but the film itself has a lot of heart. Also, Donna Murphy (who some might remember as the wife of Dr. Otto Octavious (Alfred Molina) in Spider-Man 2 (Widescreen Special Edition)) is excellent as the newest villain, Mother Gothel. I did see this in 3-D (which I'm not too crazy about) and it was great, especially with my daughter reaching out for the floating lanterns. If you don't have kids, this movie could probably wait -- even though it's still enjoyable. But, if you have a kid, this movie is essential viewing ... and you won't be rolling your eyes and constantly checking your watch to see when it ends. That, in of itself, is a compliment to Disney animation and story!

My family and I had seen this movie at a movie theater originally, so we knew we loved it. We already have watched it a couple of times since buying the video. Recommended to anyone but particularly someone who wants to smile or laugh a lot.
