Have you ever thought that you would really like to just stand around in a Disney princess dress greeting children and smiling all day? You’re going to need to do a lot of smiling. You’re also probably going to need to be white. More
Look, we all know that Disney princess movies may not be the most realistic films. But some are realer than others. Just to keep your romantic notions in check, let’s break down each classic Disney princess movie from least to most realistic. More
Is it possible to make a doll of Brave‘s Princess Merida without making her look like literally every other Disney Princess? Yes, yes it is completely possible judging by the doll in Disney’s store. So why are the others so absurdly different? More
Disney World can be an exercise in teaching your kids that patience and restraint are rewarded, or it can just be there to teach them that if you have enough money you can use the services of a disabled person to jump all the lines. I guess it really depends on the kind of person you want to see them grow into. More
What if the Disney villainesses were all turned into really high heels? More
Why did Disney deem it necessary to de-frizz her hair, nip in her waist and embiggen her breasts? More

You know, when I was a kid, like many small girls, I wanted to look like a Disney character. Specifically, I wanted to look exactly like Vanessa, the strangely sexy princess that Ursula the Sea Witch transforms into. You’d really think I would have gone with Belle, but, no, that’s not where I went with that at all. That probably has a lot to do with why I’d marry Eric. So, yeah, still feel that way pretty much. But I have also come to appreciate that Ursula in her pre-transformation mode is fabulous. More
This week, we’re discussing a few of the better known Disney princes: Beast from Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin from Aladdin and (wwwhhhhhyyy?) Eric from The Little Mermaid. The problems each choice presents are clear: Beast is a giant monster, Eric is a total d-bag and Aladdin wears a vest with nothing underneath. What to do? Will Beast’s enormous library put him ahead of the game? Or will all that erotic tension in Aladdin affect our decision making? More
Villainess Style celebrates the great fashions of horrible people. Today, The Evil Queen! Who should we do next?
Fuck Snow White, the Evil Queen had it going on. Is she the best when Charlize Theron plays her? Yes. Because Charlize Theron can turn her body into birds, and that is a cool, weird superpower. Is she the best when Julia Roberts plays her? Kind of. That was a weird portrayal. But whoever is depicting he still does a better job than whoever is depicting Snow White, because the Evil Queen is always the best. No wonder Woody Allen talks about how he had a crush on her, not Snow White, in Annie Hall.
You probably can never be as cool as her, or turn your entire body into birds. However, you can dress like her. I will help you do that. More
The worst women always have the best style. So we’re bring you Villainess Style! This week our icon is Cruella De Vil, a woman so glamorous that, as a child watching 101 Dalmatians, I was convinced that the point of the movie was “roadsters are exceedingly fun, and I should get a cigarette holder although I am only 8.”
So, normal stuff.
Here’s how to get her look as a grown up, and here is a fun song:
Forget the usual cast of bland Disney princes. I was always partial to the sidekicks — they were funnier and more lovable than any prince with a case of the marriage blues. From Aladdin’s Genie to The Little Mermaid’s Sebastian, the sidekick often stole the whole movie with their big hearts and funny punchlines.
So call your fairy godmother to request some comic relief and excellent song and dance numbers. It’s time to rank Disney’s greatest animated sidekicks. More
“The Secret of NIMH” is dark, no doubt, but its fear-inducing scenes only scratch the surface of what bottomless anguish can be opened up with the right animated film. If “The Secret of NIMH” is, say, “The Exorcist,” then “The Mouse and His Child”(1977) is “S More
Valentine’s Day is over, and you have another year to find romance. Or continue it! Perhaps you can look back to your childhood, and take some helpful lessons about dating from these Disney Princesses. Or not. Here is what you learn from each of them, or, at least, what I learned, which may or may not have been incorrect. Who can say, really? More
