    I also thought this was better than Tangled, although neither is worthy of the term "Disney classic" in my mind. The hand drawn animation was excellent, and once things turned amphibian the film settled down and stayed entertaining, but the whole plot was extremely weak in spite of some nice characters, as were the songs (and far too many of them constantly stopping the action). Did the animation remind anyone else of Don Bluth's old style? A real pleasure to see a decent quality non-CGI animated feature again, but the story... well, it's everything isn't it? 8 years 9 months ago

    The Princess and the Frog is Disney's kooky remix of The Frog Prince fairy tale set in 1920s New Orlans, with a soundtrack to match. Music is very important in New Orleans, and it various styles are pretty well represented in the music, though the ratio of songs-to-story ratio is perhaps a bit skewed in that direction. But while it's a perfectly diverting tale, it bothered me that everything I knew about Louisiana was in this. The bayou, voodoo, begnets and gumbo (so the lead has to be a cook), Mardi Gras, riverboats, Cajuns, a Southern belle calling her father "Big Daddy", rich white folks and poor black folks but also inbred rednecks, even a character called Evangeline. That some of these should be part of this nevertheless glamorous/enchanted world is perfectly fine; all of it feels like someone is ticking off boxes and steeps the story in cliché and stereotype. Don't get me wrong, I liked the heroine, I liked the old-fashioned animation, I liked that it dared kill off a character. But I didn't really believe in the romance, and the world itself felt forced. 3 years 4 months ago
