With last year's perfectly pleasant 'The Princess and the Frog,' Disney stuck to its traditional hand-drawn animation and fairy-tale formula in an effort to emulate the likes of 'Beauty and the Beast,' 'Aladdin,' 'The Lion King,' and so on. For the studio's 50th animated feature, 'Tangled,' the usual princess pattern has been treated to a visual and verbal polish, and while the end result may not be an instant classic worthy of ranking alongside the aforementioned films, it's certainly a more satisfying showcase of derring-do, sweet romance and musical numbers in-between than we've seen from the Mouse House in quite some time.
