The recent title switch of Disney's next animated feature from "Rapunzel" to "Tangled" was vaguely ascribed to "a filmmaker decision." The real reason, says the Los Angeles Times, is that the studio thought the new title would appeal to more boys in the wake of the $222 million "failure" of "The Princess and the Frog." "We did not want to be put in a box," said Ed Catmull, president of Pixar and Disney Animation. "Some people might assume it's a fairy tale for girls when it's not." C'mon, give the lads some credit.The final reel
