Tangled is funny and sweet, and it also succeeds as a story about control and fear. It has songs, dancing, frolicking, a romantic boat ride, sacrificial love, brilliant Disney animals with unrealistically heightened consciousnesses and personalities, a villain (who is more realistic than most Disney villains), a princess, and a better version of a classic story.

Mandy Moore is adorable as the voice of Rapunzel, and Chuck's Zachary Levi takes on the male lead. Disney is trying to appeal more to boys, so they named this Tangled and put the male lead at the center of the advertising campaign. Enjoy this one, because according to news outlets, Disney is pulling the plug on princess movies. Little girls no longer want to be princesses. Studies show that they are more interested in being "hot" and "cool." Yeah, that's a little sad. We enjoyed this old-school Disney fairy tale and its innocent/non-cynical content.

We went with no kids, and everyone liked it. Everyone in the group (except one guy) teared up. The kids behind us seemed to like it too. Good, clean fun. It’s not as good as some of our favorite recent kids’ movies (Finding Nemo, How to Train Your Dragon), but if you want to see this, you won’t be disappointed.

Movie Grade: A
