Milk and Cookies and an Instant MovieInstant Movie: Tangled (2010)Myrna Valadez

This might be a very controversial thing to say but, in my opinion, the best Disney movie EVER is Sleeping Beauty. It’s such a classic – you know, the whole ‘boy kills dragon to save girl’ thing. I love that it’s old timey and has castles, knights and stuff like that. Anyway, needless to say that these newer movies just don’t tickle me like Sleeping Beauty does. Then one blessed day, I decided I would watch Tangled (2010) with my godson. I fell in love about 10 minutes into the movie; it has all the things I love and a couple of twists. My godson, on the other hand, said, “We should have watched Tron” as we walked out. So yes, it’s a total chick movie, there’s no doubt… which is why you must must must watch! Need more? Here goes:
  1. I’m going to start with obvious, Flynn Rider is one hot piece of animated meat. He’s handsome, witty, totally bu-uff and rugged. He’ll totally go out and kill a dragon for you and then come home and sing the kids to sleep. I swear. He’s the Dylan McKay type but with a dash of sleaze.
  2. Some of you might remember my history with my hair and so you know how important it is to me. Now here is this movie with this girl with awesome hair that she uses like a rope. I’m jealous, that’s all.*
  3. Also, this is one of those old timey movies I’ve been yapping about. There’s castles and an old tower and animals with bad attitudes.
  4. Not since Beauty & The Beast have I sang along so much with a movie. THERE IS SINGING.
  5. Lastly, it’s a little unconventional. I like that it’s an old timey movie with a modern side.
So ladies, snuggle up on the couch with some cookies and milk, this is a must watch for this weekend! I promise this movie won’t disappoint. If you are disappointed, I can set you up with some friends that will set you straight! XOXOXO

  1. Love this movie! And the fact that Zachary Levi is the voice of Flynn just makes Flynn 10x sexier! :)

  2. I can’t even lie, I absolutely love this movie and have watched it waaay too many times now for it to be cool. And I sort of have a crush on Flynn Rider. Yeah. I said it.
    Great pick!

  3. Best disney move in years. Looooooooved it.

  4. Beauty and the beasttt <3 Totally my favourite :D

  5. My boyfriend totally loves this movie. What appreciate most about “Tangled” is that Rapunzel does the saving. And she’s a girl. My heart swelled up with pride knowing a bunch of impressionable young girls will watch “Tangled” and hope to be like Princess Rapunzel, who also kick ass.

  6. It’s not just a girl movie! I was talking to this guy yesterday and he said he had seen Tangled four times.

  7. I will say that I know a bunch of guys who LOVE this movie. Once they get over that, “EW GIRLS!” phase, they can appreciate such an incredibly perfect and fabulous movie. I’m so glad you did this ugh fave fave fave forever. I’m referring to you now, not the movie.

    • Wanna know a secret? You’re a friend that I’d refer people to if they DIDN’T like it…you’d set them straight, right?

  8. Liked it, except with the ending, I think if I were her, I’d want to go back to being blonde. Pronto. (I don’t believe that nonsense about it not growing back…no essence=regular growth, duh. Besides, hasn’t much of what Gothel told Rapunzel all her life been untrue? :) ) I had gone brunette once, and it just didn’t suit me. Maybe because when you’re used to something for a long time, you just really can’t think of it any other way. Also, anyone at Disney realize that about 100% of their Rapunzel merch. is her with the long, gold hair? Really, she’s not Alice Cullen. (Well, Alice HAS a reason for why hers can’t grow back, but that’s an entirely different story.)

    That aside, I liked the film, working on a dress of my own…even though the temptation to pair her with another character who’s been mistreated by his witchy mothers has been very strong-

    Don’t worry about her, she has a frying pan if he starts getting pervy with her. :)

    • Hahaha, I love that picture! By the way, I read all the Twilight books but I can’t for the life of me remember why Alice’s hair won’t grow, what’s the deal with that?

  9. Love Tangled. I want a Pascal of my own.
    And I know a few guys who like it… That reminds me that a colleague of mine still has my copy.
