My Penny of View : The film was based on well known fairy tale-The Frog Prince. Every little girl has a dream to marry with a handsome prince and live happily ever after. Somehow, Tiana only wish to accomplish her father's dream which was to open a restaurant named Tiana's Place. On the other hand, her childhood mate-Charlotte believed the fairy tale and dreamed to marry to a prince. Prince Naveen from Maldonia came to city and he was a poor prince because he has been cut off his cash flow by his parents. He either get a job or get marry to a wealthy girl. This naive price met a wicked voodoo and believed that he can get what he wanted. The voodoo wanted to use Prince Naveen to take away La Bouff fortune with the help of Prince Naveen's butler. Therefore, Prince Naveen has been transformed into a frog.

The frog (Prince Naveen) thought Tiana was a princess and asked for a kiss to break the curse. The kiss did not break the spell and Tiana turned into frog as well. Both of them together went to look for the good voodoo-Mama Odie to break the spell. They met a trumpet playing alligator and a romantic hopeless firefly joined their journey. Mama Odie gave them solution which was Prince Naveen must kiss Charlotte before midnight because she was the Mardi Gras Princess of the parade. On the other hand, Tiana expressed her interest more in her restaurant than Prince Naveen and it made him very disappointed. He promised Tiana that he will fulfill her dream once he marry with Charlotte. When Prince Naveen kidnapped by the bad voodoo, Tiana realized that she has fell in love with Prince Naveen and confessed that she rather has him as frog to be part of her dream. The midnight clock rang and Prince Naveen still remain as frog. After confession of their love, Tiana and Prince Naveen married. They have transformed back to human because once Tiana marry to Prince Naveen, it made her a Princess and the spell break. They live happily ever after.

Disney knows the best what makes a successful 2D animation with tradition happily ever after ending. It turned around the classical famous tell with jokes and surprise. Talking animals like alligator, firefly is one of the Disney flick. Last but not least the great songs and dance are one of the attraction of Disney animation. You will feel entertaining through the movie and the morale of the story was clearly understand. Sometimes we feel hard to differentiate what we need and what we want. 'Need' is something is important and we can't live without. 'Want' actually is our desire to own something that we wish to upgrade our life. It can be one of the motivator for better life. This movie end up neatly and nicely with classical 2D animation and proud to be one of the best animation of Year 2009.
