So I was feeling rather frugal and decided we had perfectly good sweets and popcorn at home - I love these nudie snack cups and they were $2.50 for 3 of them this week at Woolies so I stocked up!
We took popcorn, jellies, marshmallows, lollipops and some fruit. And of course our drinks...
Some very excited girls ready for the movie to start!
Now Tangled is something that is at the top of every pre-teen girl must-see-movie list and hubby had promised that the week's good behaviour would be rewarded. So we headed to the cinema, picked up our tickets and headed to our seats. Soon enough another family with two girls sat beside us and the father joked with hubby in a very sarcastic tone: 'Have you been hanging out for this one too?'
These poor daddies of girls, they are subject to so much - barbie, my little ponies and disney princesses..
The movie as you might already know is about Rapunzel - who is stolen and locked away from her parents, the king and queen in a hidden fortress. Now this Disney adaptation does divert from the original - and it is I have to say it - perfectly charming. There's singing but not so much you are cringing.
In fact, one of my favourite scenes is at the Snuggly Duckling where we meet the pub thugs:
Hubby laughed SO hard in this movie. I wondered at the end of it who enjoyed it more, him or the kids! So it turns out in this case, Daddies don't have it so hard...
I enjoyed it too, it's a great holiday movie and something I would recommend taking your kids to - save the money (go on a Tuesday or half price day) make a day of it, pack your own popcorn and ENJOY.
