Rolling Stone - 11/24/2010 3 stars out of 4 -- "Disney's spirited re-telling of RAPUNZEL in 3D animation turns out to be a dazzler....With style and wit to spare."
Box Office - 11/09/2010 4 stars out of 5 -- "Delightful, funny, sometimes innocuous and still often thrilling, TANGLED transforms the old, tower-cloistered damsel story into a morality play that pits openness and sincerity against selfishness and insincerity..."
Wall Street Journal - 11/26/2010
"[T]he prettiness comes with brains, and the whole production, like those newly eye-catching models of American-made cars, bespeaks resurgent confidence."
Los Angeles Times - 11/24/2010
"[With] a gorgeous computer-animated look that features rich landscapes and characters that look fuller and more lifelike than they have in the past."
A.V. Club - 11/23/2010
"It's a rambunctious, modern story...The script and the sprightly directing give the story plenty of snap and humor, and the animation is so luminously beautiful that even a falling-in-love sequence cribbed in part from THE LITTLE MERMAID is overwhelmingly magical." -- Grade: B+
New York Times - 11/26/2010

Sight and Sound - 02/01/2011
"[The filmmakers] use 3D efficiently without resorting to gimmickry, saving the full impact for an emotive scene in which lanterns float through the sky and into the vision of the audience."
