The Princess And The Frog Movie Rating: 4


After his parents cut him off, Prince Naveen decides he’ll marry Charlotte—a rich white girl who’s always wanted to marry a prince—to gain access to her fortune. All goes according to plan until Naveen meets the evil Doctor Facilier who transforms the prince into a frog! Naveen must convince a princess to kiss him or he’ll remain a frog forever!


Wish Upon A Star

Tiana’s father always taught Tiana the value of hard work and told her wishing on stars will only take her so far. As a result, Tiana has never expected a prince to sweep her off her feet and save her from her troubles. Instead, she’s worked hard to make her dreams come true. After toiling away at two waitress jobs, Tiana eventually saves up enough money to buy her own restaurant, but another buyer puts down a higher offer and Tiana has to come up with more money fast. Desperate for help, she wishes on a star—but instead of help, she gets Naveen instead! The frog prince mistakes Tiana for a princess and thinking it will break the spell, he asks her to kiss him. Tiana plants one on him and is transformed into a frog herself! The two must set out across the bayous of New Orleans to find a 197-year-old voodoo queen in hope that she’ll know how to break the spell.


The Bottom Line

The Princess and the Frog is being promoted as Disney’s return to hand-drawn animation as well as their first animated feature starring an African-American princess and the movie doesn’t disappoint on either front. The Princess and the Frog pays tribute to New Orleans and jazz culture and the classic animation harkens back to Disney’s heyday of the Little Mermaid, Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast. Even though this movie follows these usual Disney formulas—the usual critter sidekicks come in the form of Louis the trumpet-playing alligator and Ray the firefly—it’s such a treat for the eyes that you won’t mind a bit.

    Would You Risk Your Life to Kiss a Princess?

    • For sure - a kiss from a princess is worth it.
    • Not a chance - no princess is worth my life.
    • If she was really, really hot.
    • If she had lots and lots of money.

'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.'What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending.It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.'V.P.S.?'Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.'But I like the inconveniences.'We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
