Review of Tangled!
Synopsis: Rapunzel has been trapped in her tower for almost all of her eighteen years by an ugly witch who poses as her mother and keeps Rapunzel to use her magical hair to keep her young. Rapunzel longs to leave the tower and see the mysterious floating lights which ascend into the sky every year the day of her birthday.
Then enters Flynn Rider, thief extraordinaire. As he runs away after stealing the precious crown of the long lost princess, her stumbles upon Rapunzel's tower.
Rapunzel takes his satchel containing the crown, bargains with him to take her to the lights, and there begins the wonderful adventure!
The Good: This movie truly is a family-friendly adventure. I loved every minute of it. The story was lighthearted and fun, and I have never laughed so much in a movie theater! This is truly on of my favorite Disney movies ever. I mean, this ranks number two to my all-time favorite, Finding Nemo. I'm a huge fan of family/kids movies, so I was totally captivated by the story. The characters are all awesome and distinct, and the story is so sweet. The villainess, Mother Gothel, was somewhat of a complex character and I think she's (can I say it) my favorite Disney villain. I highly recommend it.
The Not So Good: I honestly can't think of much I didn't like! Mother Gothel attire bothered me just a little bit... That's honestly all I can think of.
