Is it possible to fall in love with a frog?

Because it's quite possible I have!!

What an incredibly wonderful movie! After my dear fairy friend Caroline Cakewise raved about it on her blog I just knew my fears of Disney having lost its magic could be put to rest - and I simply had to see it!
The music, the dancing, the simple awesomeness of it all - do you know I had never felt I could truly relate with any Disney Princess before? I usually would share some qualities but fall short on others - Do you know that Tiana is me, through and through? Completely dream committed and short-sighted about the other important things far too often? It was like looking in a mirror! I want to be her best friend!

True to form, however, I'd have to say my favorite part of the whole movie was the same as Caroline's - little Ray and his beloved Evangeline!

I cried like a little girl at the end - but I won't give it away.

My dear darlings, you simply must see it! It definitely made all my dreams come true.

  1. Aw! I read Caroline's post on this movie too and now I have to see it! I'll have to get it on DVD this weekend.d :D

  2. Aaahhh!! I'm so glad you liked it, my lovely - I just thought it was the perfect mix of Disney happily-ever-after and something more thoughtful and melancholy, a bit closer to true dedication and steadfastness! Can you believe it, I watched the movie again with one of my best friends and as Raymond lay dying, she just recoiled and grimaced, "Errr, he's such an ugly bug... he's just horrible-looking... I don't really like him..." I just looked at her through my tears in horror!! But then I do tend to overreact... :)
