Full disclosure: I cried twice during Tangled. The first time was before the movie even started. That is the kind of Disney Nerd I am. You’ll have to see the movie for yourself to discover what prodded cry #2 — I’m sure you’ll get embarrassingly emotional too. It’s okay.
And you really should see it, boys. It has been advertised as Disney’s “Princess Movie for Boys” afterall. Well, let’s go back a bit. Tangled tells the classic fairy tale Rapunzel, but Disney wanted to attract more boys, teens and adults, so they changed the name to Tangled. Trailers marketed the film heavily toward the rough ‘n tumble, accentuating the slapstick humor, action, adventure, and bad boy protagonist Flynn Ryder. Predictably, this kills people who hate fun.
