The magically long-haired Rapunzel has spent her entire life in a tower, but now that a runaway thief has stumbled upon her, she is about to discover the world for the first time, and who she really is.
The beautiful princess Giselle is banished by an evil queen from her magical, musical animated land and finds herself in the gritty reality of the streets of modern-day Manhattan. Shocked by this strange new environment that doesn't operate on a "happily ever after" basis, Giselle is now adrift in a chaotic world badly in need of enchantment. But when Giselle begins to fall in love with a charmingly flawed divorce lawyer who has come to her aid - even though she is already promised to a perfect fairy tale prince back home - she has to wonder: Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?Written by
The first live action musical scene takes place in Central Park. Julie Andrews who is the narrator in this movie, played the main character in The Sound of Music (1965). The opening shot of the first line, "The hills are alive with the sound of music", from that movie is re-created here. It is the scene in which a camera on a helicopter pans over Julie Andrews as she walks up the hill while she starts singing the title song of that movie. In this movie, while it does not start off with that shot it is in the early part of Giselle's Central Park song number, and it is recreated using a crane rather than a helicopter. See more »
The dance at the end is the "King & Queen's Waltz", so the rhythm has to be 1-2-3, 1-2-3 etc., but it is actually a slower 1--2, 1--2 (or 1--2--3--4 if you want). Each actual beat COULD be imagined as a very quick 1-2-3, but nobody dances that fast. The dance is like a fox-trot, not a waltz. See more »

My husband and I received tickets to this movie as a gift. My husband was just going to take our daughter, but we decided to all go. We took my 11 year old son and my 10 year old daughter to this movie thinking it would just be something to do since "we had the tickets anyway." It was supposed to just be a fun night. We had no idea how "in love" with this movie we would all be! We laughed out loud, I cried, and the kids had the best time. We were actually holding hands and singing on the way back to the car. It's a must see! Dads, you'll laugh, I promise! We can't wait until it comes out on video! It's Great family time. Go go GO see this movie.
