Everything Wrong With “Tangled” In The Time It Takes You To Read This

Just like Beauty and the Beast has huge plot holes but I do not care, Tangled does too. So everyone who whines about Frozen plot holes- they all do. I was going to write about it but he does it so well why bother? Enjoy!

Tangled rocks!!

I also wonder how Mother Gothel knew the song?  And why does Mother Gothel tell Rapunzel her birthday especially if she knew they were sending out lanterns for her on her birthday?

Also wouldn’t the hair stop Rapunzel from growing too if it reverses aging in Gothel?  All that is needed is the song so why didn’t she just stay a baby? Hint…there wouldn’t be a movie then!

Mother Gothel also doesn’t do a very good job brainwashing her daughter. She has complete control of her education. She could tell her stars are magic or ruled by wizards. Whatever. She has NO access to any outside world so in a way Mother Gothel is too nice in raising Rapunzel. (Ha never thought about it that way I bet!)

So enough talking about plot holes . Deal with it and enjoy the movie.

My review is coming…Hint, hint- I’m a fan!

The Reclusive Essayist

I still remember prior to and after “Frozen” came out, it immediately drew comparisons with Disney’s previous foray into the world of Disney Princesses, “Tangled”. Fairly apropos, considering the art style was identical and Anna and Rapunzel are more similar than not. Some argued, and probably still do, that “Tangled” was the superior film, for reasons of plot holes in “Frozen”. Well…I’m about to set the record straight that for all of the patches that should have been made in “Frozen”, “Tangled” had more than their share.

Again, this is a shameless knock-off of Cinema Sins. Check them out on Youtube. They’re great if you don’t mind the nitpicking. 😀





In the time it takes you to read this or less.



Movie trying to take itself fairly seriously opens with narration by Eugene, knocking off of “The Emperor’s New Groove” which was…

  1. I think some people confuse major plotholes (that do contradict the film, and the characters, and the morals), and what I call as major nitpicks (small things that literay has no importance other than to both about something). People cal say that the plotholes in the bad films like Home on the Range, Chicken Little, The Black Cauldron, etc. don’t matter because all films have them (which this article explicitly states), but they don’t. Many use that films only for the films they like.

    1. It’s like Emma Thompson once said “only in a bad movie do you notice the craft services table in the shot”. Every movie can be nitpicked as you say and I agree completely.

      What I think happens is when we are trying to defend why we don’t like a film we bring up these kinds of reasons when in reality we just didn’t go along with the vision and couldn’t make the storytelling leaps.
      I just thought worth reblogging because people give Tangled a pass and are often so tough on Frozen. I went along with both films despite the nitpicks.
