The Princess and the Frog

A Christmas Disney dvd which we were obliged to see twice on Christmas Day.  It's not bad, though at times I wondered exactly what the target audience was.  The plot is no great secret - a girl kisses a frog and instead of him turning into a handsome prince, she turns into a (presumably) attractive frog.  Cue mayhem as the rogs are chased by all maner of baddies, some conjured up by voodoo, and meet up with all sorts of lively characters in the bayou.  I found the songs and characters fairly forgettable, but there was an underlying zest to the whole thing which madeit reasonably watchable.
   My verdict: don't go out of your way to buy it, but if you pick up a cheap copy and have nothing better to do at Christmas...
