Movie Review of The Princess and the Frog (2009)
Movie Review for The Princess and the Frog
A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another. If these minds love one another, the home will be as beautiful as a flower garden.

This is a typical Disney princess/love story with a couple of cute plot twists. The heroine is an African-American, the setting New Orleans, and the music jazz and Cajun. The graphics are very similar to Cinderella.
The messages, love and family are the most important treasures, and only through hard work can we achieve our dreams, seem very topical in these financially difficult times. The shadows from the other side are a bit scary. Whenever the story started to lose the interest of the young audience, it would break into song or slapstick humour. A good family holiday film.
