1 hour 35 minutes




Yes!!!!! Disney's major comeback to hand drawn animation has begun. The Princess And The Frog tells the story of Tiana, a lonely, down on her luck New Orleans waitress who aspires to open up her own Jazz restaurant for her father. One night, Tiana meets Prince Naveen, a pampered prince who gets everything in life. Although, our fellow Prince isn't quite human. He has in fact become a mucus covered frog by a voodo doctor who communicates with the shadows of the other side. Now, Prince Naveen believes that Tiana, who he believes to be a princess must kiss her to turn human again. That's where our problems begin! This movie is really entertaining and a must see in theaters or Blu-Ray. What was so amazing was the animation that Disney returned to make. Although, the story was a little to predictable if you've seen your typical Disney princess film like the Acadamy Award nominee Beauty And The Beast or Cinderella. Also, this film shows that you don't need 3D glasses, an IMAX screen, or CGI animation to make a great film. Walt Disney would've been proud to see this film. And I bet that Walt Disney has already seen this film in heaven while hanging out with the King and Marilyn Monroe. My favorite and most beautiful scene is the Shadow Man scene. What this film also teaches you is that you should never give up on your dreams to do whatever you want in adulthood, even if that means getting turned into a frog to show it. So what I'm saying is, go and see or rent The Princess And The Frog and see what Disney can do with the animation. Trust me!

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
