After the third attempt to watch this film, I finally got through the first 15 minutes and am glad I did. There always seemed to be something to stop me from getting too far in. So, what did I think?
“Is it entertaining?” Yes. For the most part, the songs were enjoyable and the animation was fine. The pacing could be improved somewhat, mostly by eliminated 2-3 songs. 2 out of 3
“Is it interesting?” Yes. The character backgrounds and the story development were easily above the average kids movie. The plot was a tad predictable and the moral seemed to meander some. 2 out of 3
“Is it memorable?” Somewhat. The most unique thing were the character types. While the animation was fine, some of the human facial expressions were just off enough to be slightly creepy. I am glad most of the movie had some of the main characters as animals. 1.5 out of 3
Start with 1.
I will round up for the overall enjoyment of the time spent.
I have some questions, I have some comments, both of which may come across as moderately hostile, but I still enjoyed _The Princess and the Frog_. I’m not too sure why though. I won’t be coming back for the soundtrack, which is generally one of the biggest appeals of these Princess deals, and certain things are so *yawn* Disney that you can call them before you press play, but at least it’s a little different.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
And with the brilliant light of Cajun Fireflies, there is a ray of hope in the world …
As a young female twenty-something, my 90’s childhood was shaped by the Golden Age of Disney. Every year, there would be a new masterpiece for my mom to take me to; Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Aladdin … And when Disney failed so terribly in the early millennium and closed down shop, my heart was broken. There was a part of our culture and my life that my little girl I someday hope to have was never going to be able to experience, and I was never going to get back.
So as soon as I heard that Disney was coming out with their triumphant return to 2-D, I felt like the world was FINALLY getting its act together.
While CGI has produced some good hits, it isn’t the same as 2-D. There was no one who could do cartoons like Disney, and I think they began to realize that.
I can honestly say that this movie is brilliant. I saw it last night, and it’s still haunting me twenty-four hours later like I’d just walked out of the theater. If this movie had been A.) racist or B.) a let down, I would have been very angry and wouldn’t take the time to write out this review. But my God, it was right up there alongside “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Lion King.” Tiana, the long-awaited princess of the film, is a (gasp) real person! Her whole life does not revolve around getting married to the prince, nor does it involve some odd and harried “I’m totally a hardkore awesome person” plot. She has her faults. She’s brash, a workaholic, and kind of a judgmental jerk. However, she is also headstrong, loving, and ridiculously intuitive. This is the sort of woman we need in a Disney cartoon for our kids to look up to, especially when the best role model they’ve had in the past few years is Bella Swann.
The prince, Naveen, is also an actual human being. He’s cocky, spoiled, and hilarious. However, as the movie goes on, it is made quite clear (in a song by Randy Newman) that Naveen isn’t happy at all. His and Tiana’s relationship is based on self-discovery and mutual respect, rather than some of the other Disney movies where it is completely based on the need for a romantic plot. I see Belle and the Beast and Shang and Mulan (pre Mulan II, we can pretend that sequel doesn’t exist), rather than Cinderella and Prince Charming. It seems like “Enchanted” really did bring a lot of new ideas to the Disney creed, and it completely shows in the way they tackle their archetypes in this refreshing rendition.
I was skeptical when I heard Randy Newman had composed the music. And yes, folks, it is in fact musical style. The characters sing, not Randy. And while you can still tell it’s Randy, it’s also Disney. The jazzy complexity of the songs drive the story forward and just wrap you up into the buzzing momentum of the film. I will definitely grab this soundtrack and play it religiously on my ipod, I promise you that.
As for the racism: It’s Disney and regardless of what Disney does, someone is going to find something to point out as racist. However, let me just say that this movie is completely respectful and absolutely nothing in it is racist, to the point where it is obvious that Disney is trying their hardest NOT to be racist and cuts corners on the storytelling and historical racism that WOULD have been in New Orleans in 1920 (and to an extent, yes, still is). And as for turning Tiana into a frog … she’s a human for a good half the movie before she even thinks about kissing Naveen. She’s a black princess, she’s not a frog princess.
I also saw a comment about how someone didn’t like it because of the non-Christian message thanks to the use of voodoo? They were so busy looking at the BAD GUY use voodoo that they didn’t realize that Terrence Howard’s character was pretty much a walking sermon! “You can wish on a star, but that can only take you halfway?” Where does this sound familiar? “Never lose sight of what’s most important … love.” My God, the complete non-Christian message is abhorrent! The star is used as an allegory for God, and they wish on it with their hands folded … practically one could say praying? And let’s not even go into the full moral of the story: “You know what you want, but dig a little deeper and find what you need.” How about that whole thanking God for unanswered prayers sort of ideal? These are good and wholesome lessons that are going to really strengthen the next generation of both boys and girls, and I’m happy that it’s going to be an influence on the younger generation.
And the writing is amazing. As someone who writes for a living, I was completely floored at the structure of this film. You cover so much ground in 90 minutes, and you are never bored nor know what’s going to happen next! Disney knows what they’re doing (finally) on this film. It’s amazingly put together, and all the trademarks you expect to see (animal sidekicks, creepy awesome villain, amazing soundtrack, knockout visuals, strong heroine) are there in full. Go see this movie, and remember how it was to be a kid again. This is an experience you absolutely need to have.
“Princess and the Frog” is here to stay.
A worthwhile and stunning modern classic from Disney
I have wanted to see this film ever since it came out and one of my former classmates from university recommended this as well.
Prior to seeing this film, I saw a few clips of it on YouTube (in the Nostalgia Chick’s Top 10 Disney Deaths and in a young boy’s countdown of the 10 saddest Disney moments). It was definitely worth watching because it had a diverse range of lead characters and side characters, the usual Disney fairytale formula with a modern twist and catchy jazzy, soulful and swing-inspired songs, especially ‘Down in New Orleans,’ ‘Almost There’, ‘When We’re Human’, ‘Ma Belle Evangeline’ and ‘Dig a Little Deeper.’ ‘Friends on the Other Side’ was worth a listen as well as the end-credits song by Ne-Yo. The songs genuinely made the film’s pace swift. The animation is fluid and detailed and there is an interesting variety of backgrounds. Although the animation style changed during ‘Almost There,’ it had a warm colour scheme nonetheless. Princess Tiana went down in history as the first ever black Disney Princess and she is a charming protagonist who was cute as a child and aspiring as an adult. Charlotte (AKA Lottie) is an excitable supporting character whether a child or an adult while Louis (who I once mistook for the crocodile in ‘Peter Pan’ when my classmate drew a picture of him) and Ray are comedic additions to the cast of characters. Dr Facilier was a dark villain who was as original as his death, although I thought his death could have been shown before Ray’s (Facilier stepped on Ray to begin with) since it would have made more sense. This film also has product placement (Tabasco sauce), which is very rare in Disney animation (with the exception of ‘Toy Story’ where toy manufacturers are mentioned). One of the most beautiful scenes was the one with Prince Naveen and Tiana (as frogs) dancing whilst being surrounded by floating water lilies – very pretty. I initially thought this film was Disney’s take on ‘The Frog Prince,’ but it is in fact based on a story called ‘The Frog Princess,’ although I was happy to see ‘The Frog Prince’ featured at the beginning when Tiana’s mother read it to the very young Tiana and Charlotte. There was also some humorous dialogue involved, especially the hop-related puns.
Overall, this is a stunning entry in the Disney Classics canon that bridged the gap between ‘Bolt’ and ‘Tangled,’ which are also very good in spite of their CGI animation making them easy to mistake for Pixar films, and this was the best 2D animated Disney film from the 2000s since ‘Lilo and Stitch.’ 9/10.
