The Little Mermaid
The Little Mermaid is an animated movie based on the fairytale of the same name by Hans Christian Andersen.
It tells the story of Ariel, the youngest daughter of King Triton. The
mermaid finds herself bored with her life and decides she wants to live
with human beings. To attain this, she makes a deal with Ursula, the
This movie is not so much about love as it is about friendship.
Romance does play a big role in the movie but the focus is more on
Ariel's desire to experience change. With plenty of songs and dances,
the movie is a delight for people of all ages. One of the most
enjoyable characters to look out for is a lobster named Sebastian.
The Princess Diaries
Mia is a gawky teenager, living with her mother in America. At
school, she is regularly made fun of by the other students. One day,
Mia discovers that she is actually a princess of a small European
country called Genovia. Now, Mia has to accept her heritage and learn
to behave like royalty.
The movie is loosely based on the popular fairytale Cinderella. It focuses on the importance of family
relationships and acceptance of one's true self. The film is a comedy,
so be prepared for plenty of laughs. Anne Hathaway is excellent as the
awkward teenager Mia, who learns to become a princess. Watch out for
the performance of Julie Andrews as the royal grandmother.
This 80s animated feature is a love story with a twist. A
wealthy woman dies and leaves her entire estate to her pet cat Duchess
and her three kittens. The woman's evil butler kidnaps the kittens and
leaves them far away from home. Luckily, Thomas O'Malley, an alley cat,
befriends the kittens and looks out for them.
The film centres on how the kittens bring their mother
and Thomas together. As a single mother, Duchess is concerned only with
finding her children
and keeping them safe. On the other hand, Thomas projects himself as a
cat who enjoys being on his own without worrying about
responsibilities. Gradually, he finds himself attracted to the
beautiful Duchess and her naughty kittens. A highlight of this movie is
the jazz rendition of the song 'Everybody wants to be a cat' by a
character called Scat Cat.
Cheaper by the Dozen
Another family comedy, this one tells the story of Tom and Kate Baker and their 12 children. When Tom Baker gets a new job, the entire family has to move to the city, which results in a lot of unhappiness among the Baker children. After that, Kate goes out to promote her book, leaving her husband to look after the home. This is when the fun begins.
Cheaper by the Dozen is a reflection of the joy of having a large family.
Everyone is sure to enjoy the antics of the Baker kids and the
confusion of the hapless father. In between are the various issues that
the children face and how the family comes together to deal with them.
The Parent Trap
Parent Trap is a fun movie about identical twin
sisters who are separated at birth due to their parent's divorce.
Twelve years later, the girls bump into each other at a summer camp and
discover they are related. When summer camp concludes, the sisters
switch places and go back to the parents.
This movie is a comedy but it also tugs at the heartstrings.
The scene where each sister finally sees the other parent for the first
time is truly memorable. Hollywood star Lindsay Lohan is a treat to
watch in her dual role of identical twin sisters Annie and Hallie. This
was one of her earlier roles that catapulted her into the spotlight.
Valentine's Day can be a fun occasion for the entire family. Pick up one of these movies and enjoy an evening of fun and romance.
