If you've missed the blonde-locked billboards around Los Angeles, you might not know that Disney's latest animated film, "Tangled," is hitting movie theaters tomorrow, Nov. 24.
An updated twist on the Brothers Grimm fairytale "Rapunzel," "Tangled" is the story of a sassy girl (voiced by Mandy Moore) who isn't about to be swept up so easily by the usual handsome (or is it charming?) prince.
In fact, when swashbuckling rogue Flynn (Zachary Levi) moves in on her lonely tower, Rapunzel ties him up with her famous hair and demands some serious deets. Then it's off they go on all sorts of action-packed adventures.
And, hey, if he's also charming and handsome, that doesn't hurt, either.
CC has been wanting to see this movie ever since she saw the trailer at "Secretariat." She also points out every billboard she sees around the city.
I'm just happy the story centers on an enterprising young girl -- something little girls like my own could use more of in a modern animated movie.
As a special bonus, the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood is offering a "Tiny Tot Tuesday" screening on Nov. 30 at 10 a.m.
Lights will be only slightly dimmed, and the sound level will be reduced to accommodate the youngest of viewers.
Also, by using the code MOMMY, L.A. Story readers can get tickets for the discounted rate of $13 each (regularly $15 for children/seniors and $18 for adults). *Offer is good only for the Tiny Tot Tuesday screening.*
