Rapunzel ,Rapunzel let your hair down.
Last time I saw a Disney animated movie that totally captured my heart and left me in Disney love, was when Princess A was 20 months old. (Not saying I haven't seen some really good animated features since then, because I have.) It was her first movie in a theater--Beauty and the Beast. Princess A sat so entranced by every second of the movie it was hard to tell between the 20-month old and the adults in the theater.
I scored some sneak peek tickets at work, compliments of Radio Disney, to see Disney's new movie Tangled. It was Disney love all over again! The theater was jam packed full of kids. It has been a long time since I have sat amongst that many small people enjoying a movie. Hearing the sweet sound of children's laughter sprung me back in time...remembering how M could always find humor in movies even when others couldn't. Even with the infectious laughter of wee-ones, Tangled's humor isn't hard to find. It is brimming with the perfect dose of slap stick. Mandy Moore's voice is a captivating song bird leaving you to rush home to buy the Tangled CD. Of course, like any good Disney animated movie there is the handsome hero Flynn Rider and the evil sinister Mother Gothel. The message of believing in yourself, reaching for your dreams, never holding back or giving up is played out in the most perfectly beautiful way that the smallest of children and the children at heart can totally understand. Disney magic at its best.
If you want my suggestion for which dessert you should pick on Thanksgiving...I'm going to suggest a serving of Tangled--coming to theaters November 24.
