Cinematic Adventure!

"Hello and welcome to movie phone. Today's features includes "Tangled": 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."

Many of you know that Lisa came up with the great idea of setting up a reward chart to get past our difficulties with night time. The reward... going to see "Tangled". A preview for Tangled at the beginning of our Toy Story 3 dvd has had them interested so when we told them that we could go see it in the theater, they got REALLY excited. All they had to do was go to bed on their own and stay in their room all night. Sounds easy right??? Well it is if you have Tangled to hang over their head! They did great and it sounds like tonight (the first night without any extra incentive) went perfect. So hopefully we've made it past that hurdle.

Way to go Lisa!!!!

Here are their charts. They got stickers every night they did it.

POPCORN!!! After just a little bit, they both actually decided to stop eating it and just watch the movie. Wasn't expecting that!

After way too many previews, the movie started and their faces were hilarious. I got this picture really fast and had to lighten it up a bit but you can tell they were pretty excited.

The girls love to re-enact their favorite movies. So this is Kahpunzel and Pascal, the chameleon.

Now for a special treat... after we got home I had to take a nap because I'm working night shifts this week. I was asking Katy to do something and when I said "Katy...", she corrected me and said "I am KAH-PUNZEL!!" You see, for whatever reason they heard her name as that's how they say it. So thought I would try and capture it on video so I got the camera and asked Katy to do something again and this is the response I got.

So how was the movie, you ask?? Freaking great! We don't get to see too many movies. In fact, I think the only movies I saw this year were Avatar, Inception, Toy Story 3, and now Tangled. But Lisa and I rent a lot of movies...not to mention watch all the Disney and Pixar animated films over and over and over.

So when I say this, you know I've put some thought behind this. I consider Tangled one of the top 5 animated movies OF ALL TIME!! Yes I said it! I strongly believe it is at the top of its genre...the old school Disney movies like Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid, Mulan, Lion King. I put this movie at the top of that list pretty easily. I have to think about it some more and re-watch it before I start listing it in the same sentence as Toy Story, Up, Ratatouille, and Finding Nemo. But I'm leaning in that direction.'s THAT good. Hilarious, well written, great characters, perfect story, and amazing music. If you are a female or are the parent of one, you need to see this movie. Great flick! Well done Disney.
