special screening of Disney's upcoming TANGLED (2010) at the University of Southern California. The movie was shown in 3D.
The girls gave the movie a thumbs up and said it was extremely funny. My younger daughter did have a problem with the musical numbers, which she said were very random and didn't flow from the story.

The movie opens nationwide on November 24th.
