A heroine who finds love and freedom after she loses acres of blond Barbie hair -- these days, that's a radical fable.

This snappy role reversal may or may not appeal to young men, but it inspires some classic knockabout screwball comedy and an exciting, vertiginous escape sequence.

A tight little package that sings and dances, Tangled is a well-conditioned and rather shiny little piece of entertainment.

This is your basic, and very enjoyable, Disney princess musical, an empowerment tale to teach bright, dreamy girls how to grow to maturity -- and outgrow the adults in charge.

If this is what old-fashioned means, then bring it on.

Rapunzel gets a very ordinary updating in this Disney picture, raiding duller moments from the Shrek movies for ideas, and sporting a laboured selection of Broadway-style showtunes.

Tangled isn't perfect but having grown up with Disney cartoons, there's something quite heartwarming about seeing the studio approach past brilliance in the face of intense competition from Pixar and DreamWorks.

Disney has a good hair day as the revamped story of Rapunzel leaps from the screen, and not just because it's made in 3-D.

Basically, it's the old Disney formula done with a lot more elan.

The 3-D animation is ace, the blend of humour and adventure, spiced with smart songs, is great entertainment for everyone from eight to 80.

The action that follows her escape is more frenetic than inventive, but the character of Rapunzel is a Disney masterpiece unto herself.

It's a princess story that will enthrall the girls, an adventure tale to entertain the boys, all with enough good humor to make anybody laugh.

These are timeless themes -- domineering parent, sheltered child, dangerous boyfriend -- all woven together nicely by a crew of filmmakers from the Disney-Pixar trenches.

It will not rank among Disney's classics, but nonetheless, it is great fun.

This is a Rapunzel story that really knows how to let its hair down.

In speaking to my fellow reviewers upon exiting the theater, it was noted among us that nobody could remember a single musical number -- not one.

Directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard exhibit admirable control over the material, maintaining a consistently chipper tone, upbeat tempo and bright visual aesthetic without devolving into a hyperactive, disparate collection of gags.

Dann Gire
Chicago Daily Herald

Directors Byron Howard and Nathan Greno set low expectations for Tangled and achieve most of them in an amusing story about a girl whose long, long hair can be used as an elevator, a whip and other functions rivaling a Swiss Army knife.
