Disney's first African-American princess has her appeal, but the movie fails to create the same magic as "Aladdin's" Princess Jasmine and the book-hungry Belle from "Beauty and the Beast." After all, I'm not sure if little girls are going to want to dress up as a frog for next year's Halloween.
This is a movie for adults masquerading as a movie for kids. Here's why.
The story you know and love gets a gorgeous computerized makeover.
It's a "girl power" flick that's long on entertainment but comes up empty in the empowerment department.
It's a remake of an 80s classic with talent, determination, and heart -- but also some behavior you probably don't want them to see.
A deliciously comical kids movie that manages to sneak in some good messages.
