In the beginning of this article, the writer wrote, “I don’t know what the boys thought, but this movie was a hit in my house.” I can say, for a fact, that boys like “Tangled” - and these are high school boys I’m talking about.
My classes repeatedly voted for this movie to watch before the holiday break. Given the choices of “Finding Nemo,” “Up,” “The Lion King,” and “Tangled,” my students had some heated arguments over which one they wanted. For me, it was a treat just seeing how much high school kids still enjoy Disney movies, although many of them probably won’t admit it. “Tangled” won out in all my classes except one, and even in that class, it only lost to “The Lion King” by one vote. And yup, it was the boys who pushed for “Tangled.”
