It might have been someplace dark and seedy. Or it might just have been you older brother’s bedroom, the corner office or even the cookie jar on the kitchen counter. It doesn’t matter: it was somewhere you were told, in some fashion, not to go. But you went there anyway.
Film Review: Tangled
Listen to the Story
Starring: Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Donna Murphy
Genre: Animation, Family, Musical, 3D
Rating: Rated PG for brief mild violence.
Rico: Tangled comes to us by way of Walt Disney Pictures, and is a re-telling of Rapunzel. Rapunzel (voiced by Mandy Moore) has been kidnapped and kept prisoner in a remote tower where her hair has grown to 70 feet.
Joyce: This very funny fairy tale is definitely an updated version. Rapunzel has been a captive since she was a baby by a wicked sorceress, voiced effectively by Donna Murphy.
Rico: Flynn Rider (Zachary Levi) arrives on the scene as her “Prince Charming.” But he isn’t a prince; he is a charming thief. The pair make good her escape with the assistance of a funny horse who can’t help but steal the show. The trio is rounded out by a chameleon who had become Rapunzel’s only pal.
Joyce: The horse’s antics are hilarious. And the chameleon comes along for the ride and adds to the humor.
Rico: The animation is what one would expect from Disney — lush and colorful. It’s a pleasure to watch. ***1/2
Joyce: The 3D is fine, even if it isn’t essential. This certainly for kids but adults won’t be bored. ***1/2
