stop being a racist douche. yea yea u will say you didnt say anything racist, but we all know R&B in this instance is a codeword for BLACK. <p> and obviously you cared enough to post on it, dickhead. <p> anyway yea she seems hella cool and down to earth. i always like with the guest turns the tables and interviews the interviewer for a question or two.

I'd have asked why the DVD release of Princess & the Frog was so bare-bones, though! Not all of us are up on this Blu Ray business yet!

... which was invented at about the time of the American civil War called photography? I even heard that the photographic process has been quite simplified due to digital technology, and that even such aparatus known as cellphones have photographic capabilities. Wouldn't it be nice if you could provide us with some photos from your intervewees? Specially if they are hot babe actresses? Give it a thought, will you?

Aww, you should've posted a pic or two. I'd love to see what you saw.

You brought up Spider-Man's girlfriend? When you end up working for a website that lets you meet attractive actresses, pretend you're not so geeky when interviewing them.

Too bad she's a frog for most of the movie.

It was a good story with enough singing and eye candy to entertain my 3 year old....but strong performances that I could enjoy. I also feel that this Disney princess is the best "role model" for all the young girls who dream of being a princess.

Anika Noni Rose is adorable. I thought all the actors did a great job in the movie, especially Keith David.

Both my wife and I loved THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG. Both of us were so happy to see Disney return to beautiful cel animation, and they really couldn't have returned with a stronger film (no matter what Harry says). It's an absolute shame that it didn't receive the box office it deserved. All of the performances were top-notch, this princess was the best role model of that kind that Disney's ever produced, and the music and visuals were sublime. UP is still the better animated film this particular year (just because it's *so damn good*), but TP&TF should have gotten more love.

Ms. Rose is a beautiful woman, a talented singer, and a charming actress. Her voice work in The Princess and the Frog was stellar, and I loved her in The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency. And one more thing - GENE ERIC, GO TO HELL!!!

Yes this IS cool news, some of us who come to this site loves ALL aspects of film, so THANK YOU Capone! This was an amazing movie, totally loved it, and Ms. Rose was phenomenal.

where the hell is the obit for Fess Parker?!?!?!? Hmmmmm?

...Was one of the better films I saw this year actually. And it was AWESOME to see hand drawn animation again. She did a great job in the film. My wife and I are going to buy it on blu ray.

First, Anika is NOT an R & B singer, she's an actress and a damn fine one. She won a Tony for Caroline or Change, a profound musical. She's acted in plenty of non-musical plays, films and TV. I went to school with her (and I now do all the 'cool' geeky films you cream your jeans about) and I have the utmost respect for her and her craft. Your dismissal of her and her talents says more about your lack of taste than of her.

It honored the "true love/someday my prince will come" aspects of the classic Disney features but also showed the value of hard work and sacrifice without getting preachy or postmodern. And that bit with the firefly and "Evangeline" had Lasseter's fingerprints all over it.
