The long-haired Princess Rapunzel has spent her entire life in a tower, but when she falls in love with a bandit who was passing by she must venture into the outside world for the first time to find him.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this film. It felt like classic Disney. I really loved it. Its also extremely funny, and it never reverts to low brow humor or pop culture references which has become the trademark of dreamworks. Also the lantern scene is absolutely gorgeous animation.
Disney's best non-Pixar film in over a decade. A magical and delightful musical throwback to their 90s heyday. Even though it's computer animated, it actually captures the old Disney magic better than THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG.
One of Disney's best CG movies to date, with a refreshing spin on the Rapunzel tale (there's a concrete reason her hair is so long and she's locked in that tower). The characters are fun (the horse Maximus being the standout), and the music is decent enough, if forgettable.
Nicely done princess movie similar to the hits from the past but has a unique way of taking you through the story. Perhaps ther is hope for disney outside of Pixar...
And the animation on the hair was amazing! Did you see how each strand would lay?!
The writing has its weak points, but this really did feel nostalgic, like a Disney movie of old. Good soundtrack. Rapunzel is irresistible. Also, major shout-out to the lighting department on this one.
It's good, but I KIND of wish the movie would have used the Fairy Tale format to evoke more. Rapunzel is associated with the sun, which is warm, beautiful, life-giving, as well as a flower, which are often symbols of women in full bloom, etc. But those don't really play into larger themes so much as just remaining at the level that they suggest qualities about Rapunzel.
