OK, David, I don't really know enough about ballet to argue the point. But I think Lorna does, and she seemed happy with Portman's dancing.

Jon, did you see the regular version of Tangled or the 3D?

And I went to see it a second time today, this time in 3D. It's certainly a satisfying experience "flat," but the 3D adds more than I would have expected, and once or twice (particularly in the night of the floating lanterns) is truly magical. The movie holds up very well, in fact I enjoyed it even more on re-viewing. Zachary Levi and Donna Murphy set new standards for voice work in animation.

Wow, it IS good! Jon, I finally went to see it, on your recommendation -- the 3D version. What an enjoyable movie; I was laughing all the way through. I see why you singled out Zachary Levi and Donna Murphy. They were outstanding, weren't they? I can also see why you went a second time; there's so much going on, you need more than one look to get it all. Did you notice the saucer-eyed cat that's been on the internet for several years now? Its head was on a shelf at The Snuggly Duckling. There's one thing I know I missed. Gothel gave the crown to the Stabbington brothers, to lure them into her plot. Then just a few scenes later, she gave it to Rapunzel, to use to test Eugene. How did she get it back from the brothers?

The whole movie made me think of a Broadway musical -- the set pieces, the big production numbers, even some of the music ("Mother Knows Best" etc.). Alan Menken may be a Disney composer now, but I think his New York roots are showing in Tangled.
