Disney Pictures presents their comedic version of the Grimm Brothers tale in Tangled. Princess Rapunzel (Mandy Moore), with her golden hair as long as 70 feet, has been locked in a hidden tower her whole life, yearning to see the outside world. Lucky for her, a bandit named Flynn Rider (Zachary Levi) arrives at the tower. Rapunzel traps the charming thief, and makes a deal with him to act as her travel guide to the magical place where the floating lights come, lights that she’s seen each year on her birthday. The two embark on an adventure filled with humor, heart, and lots of hair.

Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi star as the voices of Princess Repunzel and Flynn Rider. Tangled is directed by Nathan Greno and Byron Howard, with original music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Glenn Slater.

Tangled got good reviews overall.

“While “Tangled” is not in the league of Disney’s best, it’s still a sturdy, pleasant execution by the animation machine, retooled slightly for digital times.” (Jake Coyle, AP Entertainment Writer)

“Perhaps ‘Tangled’ seems so refreshing because it’s not trying so hard to be post-modern in the age of ‘Shrek’ sequels. Its humor is contemporary in tone at times, and just clever in general, but everything else about its execution hearkens back to those cherished tales of empowerment and enchantment that made the Disney name in the first place. Maybe ‘Tangled’ is not a new classic, but it offers a winning dose of old-fashioned Disney charm that makes the film so satisfying.” (William Goss, LA Times)

Tangled is rated PG for brief mild violence.

    A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
