*** LOL no way, the flower only "'''heals what has been hurt''" and menstruation is the healthy norm for any woman at least between 16-45 years old. Only NOT menstruating at that age is a sign something's wrong physically and needs to be healed, and would activate the flower.

* The Evil Queen's real name is apparently Grimhilde... well, both names start with a G.
* Both Snow White and Rapunzel are considered to be taking place in Germany, so it fits nicely geographically
* Both movies end with her falling off a high place at the end - in Snow White from a cliff (which she survived according to this theory) and in Rapunzel from the tower (though she was already turning into dust at that time because of the broken spell).
* This would also hugely elevate the significance of the mirror being broken at the end.
* And how apples are a recurring theme in Tangled. Rapunzel has a basket of apples (no other fruit, just apples - that's the only fruit we see in the movie) in her tower and Mother Gothel ''almost'' takes a bite out of one. Even Maximus is only seen eating / has a thing for apples, while stereotypically horses' favorite food is always carrots. When Flynn's narrating how the story ends and says "and all the apples disappeared", this can even be taken as a metaphor for "and evil disappeared" - the apple being the main instrument of Grimhilde/Gothel's evilness in Snow White.

[[WMG: The crown represents virginity.]]
As [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything/AnimatedFilms discussed on another page]], the crown probably is supposed to be her virginity. In the campfire scene, take it with that context. Yeah. Mother Gothel tells her that Flynn is only after one thing and once he gets it, he will leave her. Rapunzel's hair can also be seen as a symbol of her virginity, having gotten its power from a magic flower. Thus, Flynn [[spoiler:"deflowered" her when he slashed her hair with a pointy object]]. It's even worse if you listen to the reprise of "Mother Knows Best" on the soundtrack. Without almost totally visual context, this is exactly what it sounds like. This is even worse when you think back to the original story.

Not to mention the scene where the Stabbington brothers encounter Rapunzel and try to capture her. The ominous atmosphere made it seem more like they were trying to rape her. This adds a even creepier factor to the Stabbington Brothers' "We want her" line. It's already pretty misinterpretable, but they want her 'magic hair', when they first wanted the 'crown'.

[[WMG: Flynn is Jewish.]]
So the kingdom's wanted posters draw him really accurately but they have to make this dashing thief look like a bad guy, and they choose his nose to caricature?
Fitzherbert isn't the most Jewish name imaginable admittedly, but remember it's inherited maternally. And 'Eugene', well...

* Or she was just a selfish ControlFreak who wanted to exploit Rapunzel and her abilities for herself. Let's not dive too far into DracoInLeatherPants here.

[[WMG:: Rapunzel and Flynn/Eugene will have twins]]
In the original tail, Rapunzel and the prince have twins. They will have twins as well, fraternal twins.

[[WMG: The Snuggly Duckling patrons are mercenaries]]
I would have put this on the headscratchers page, but then I thought of an answer myself. I was wondering what they did for a living. There's not many professions that call for a bunch of heavily armed thugs, and the fact that they were initially willing to call the royal guards to their hideout to collect the bounty on Flynn Rider, strongly indicates against highway robbery or other criminal activity as their primary occupation, since in that case they themselves would be wanted criminals just the same as Flynn. The only thing I can think of that that leaves, is that they're some sort of mercenaries. Not sure exactly what sort of mercenary work they do, but it's the only thing that makes sense.
