** It's not really so much "Working hard is bad", or is it the fact that Tiana has a very small social life, either. It's the ''reason why'' she works so hard, because she believes that working hard is the only way she will ever stand a chance of getting anywhere in life, and because she thinks that her father will have lived and died for nothing if she fails to open the restaurant he always wanted, and because she constantly tries to force this incredibly one-sided viewpoint on others throughout the story. What makes the film unique, however, is that it also portrays some of the benefits of Tiana's lifestyle, just as it manages to do so with Naveen's - thus, it's not so much "Working hard is bad" or "Having fun is bad"...but more like, "A balance between the two is ''good''."

*** I'm pretty sure at the time Tiana thought she was having some weird daydream or psychotic break because; TALKING FROG. So naturally it would never occur to her that A) she couldn't break the spell B) she had to be a princess as opposed to a "maiden" or some other fairy tale archetype

* I mean absolutely NO offense to anyone by this, so if it does come off that way, I deeply apologize. I was only wondering...The ruling family of Maldonia appears to be black. (Or at least AmbiguouslyBrown, as some people seem to label it.) And the royal guards are shown to be white. I'm taking a bit of a step onto some eggshells here, but...is that at all weird, is it just the more ignorant side to my naiveté coming to light? ** Weird in what sense? Since Maldonia is a fictitious country and we know next to nothing about its culture or history, there's no context by which to say that it's in any way strange for the dark-skinned Maldonian ruling family to have light-skinned guards. Since the state of race relations in the US at that period of history is downplayed but not completely absent in the film, the most you could say is that the Americans in the film's setting might find it odd.

* I know that Naveen is supposed to be naive and inexperienced, but what was he really thinking as he went to shake Facilier's hand? Was he honestly tricked into thinking that this stranger who had lured him into a dark alleyway and whom he hadn't paid anything was just going to hand him over enough money that he wouldn't have to marry Charlotte? Even if you're a colossal airhead, there's some things that are just common sense.
