Trivia

Very nearly 50% of the plot revolves not around the titular Rapunzel - but rather around Rapunzel's hapless parents. It is much more of an "origin story" than many other renditions. See more »

User Reviews

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair.
7 November 2001 | by MandiceSee all my reviews

A hair-curling fairy tale brought to life by Miss Duvall, who saves a bit on expenses and takes on dual roles for the movie.

The story remains fairly faithful to the original Grimm Tale, so watching it with your children might not be such a bad idea. Comical moments and bits of magic truly make this worth the watch. (Most video stores keep a copy in their family or children sections.)
