Marie Callender's Review & Giveaway

Marie Callender's Bakes...sounds tasty, no?
Recently I was able to try 2 of them.

The score is fantastic.

There is a little bit of everything in this movie.
Fun, romance, action, drama.
It's definitely geared towards children of both sexes.
Not to mention it's appeal for adults.

Here's a little synopsis:
Walt Disney Pictures presents “Tangled,” one of the most hilarious, hair-raising tales ever told. When the kingdom’s most wanted—and most charming—bandit Flynn Rider (voice of Zachary Levi) hides out in a mysterious tower, he’s taken hostage by Rapunzel (voice of Mandy Moore), a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair. Flynn’s curious captor, who’s looking for her ticket out of the tower where she’s been locked away for…
