In a previous post I shared an article where a lady wrote about finding adoption related themes in Disney movies, and especially in "Tangled". I received some very enlightening comments. Most said they did not relate the movie to adoption at all because Rapunzel was kidnapped, not adopted. One lady commented that she was more worried about how the long, golden hair would affect her daughter's self esteem.
I have finally seen the movie. Overall, not thinking about the possible adoption aspect, I wasn't impressed. I guess from the comments of others and from the clips I've seen of it I expected it to be more modern, less damsel-in-distress. It was not. Just another typical Disney story. Bummer.
There was one part of the movie that made me go, "What?" It was when Rapunzel and Flynn (that was his name, right?) enter a bar full of "ruffians".
Flynn: "You smell that? Take a deep breath through the nose. Really let that seep in. What are you getting? Because to me it's part man smell, and the other part is really bad man smell. I don't know why but overall it just smells like the color brown. Your thoughts?"
Now let me say I'm not fishin' for something to complain about. I understand what was and wasn't meant by this comment, but it jumped out at me and just really bugs. Annoying.
Did you notice it? What do you think about it?
