Belle, Nostalgia Critic regards her as one of the best animated characters ever and I have to agree. She's strong, adventurous, doesn't really care what people think of her, doesn't take crap from no one........and yet.....at the same time......it's those same traits that make her kind of ANNOYING!!!! Don't get me wrong. Belle is great. She's hot, she's smart, and she's strong, but you see, the thing is while those are good traits for a perfect to have, Belle has way too many good traits. She is too freakin' stinkin' PERFECT!!!!! She is like the ultimate good model of Disney. She always wants to do the right thing, she's not shallow, she never think about doing anything, sneaky or sly or underhanded or devious. And the straw that breaks the camel's back, SHE DOESN'T LOSE A SINGLE ARGUEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I seems like when she's in a dispute with someone, she's always the one who's right. She's always the one on topo, início in an argument and she always has a response for everything and she just can't lose a single argument! She doesn't have a single negative trait and quite frankly, I find characters like that irritating! Now, I am in no way, shape, or form, a male, shovanest pig or a sexist person por any stretch of the imagination, but here's the thing, strong female characters annoy me!! In fact, strong females in general annoy me. mais particularly, the sassy-tongued ones. I just hate how in filmes or TV shows, strong females characters are portrayed as the ultimate answer to males who other females perceive as 'The Devil,' how they're perceived as 'great role modelos that the world needs mais of' and how critics of filmes and TV shows don't even have a single bad thing to say about them and are always, ALWAYS on their side. And the same thing applies in real life too. If you watch shows like Jerry Springer, Maury, or....*shutters* Steve Wilkos, on those shows, the females usually are the victim and the male is the ultimate anti-Christ. And don't even get me started on Erica Enders, the famous drag racer, and Marny Piper from the Halloweentown series, I can't even put into words the level of HATRED I have for those two!! But while I may be occasionally annoyed por strong females, I certainly do not hate MOST of them and as a matter a fact, I encourage lots of females to be strong and independent . The only thing I ask is that you not be so freakin perfect and act like gifts from Heaven. So in terms of disney Princesses, I guess I've come to see that Belle is probably my least favorito of them, but I certainly don't hate and I think she belongs in the line. I just wish that one time, ONE TIME, she would do something....bad, something wrong, something devious or at least act a tad mean once in a while.

We can't seem to get enough of these three, who have recently become the most popular disney Princesses!! So, why not bring them back in their own film? When a family crisis breaks out the two blonde cousins (which is revealed, as well as the fact that all blondes in the family have powers, thus Anna does not as she is a brunette) must head into action, leaving Anna behind to feel left out. However, as expected, they underestimated the situation and send a distress call. Anna does not believe she will be of any use, but checks it out anyway to see if she could get help for them elsewhere. But what she doesn't know is that she has a different power, one of amor and determination. She must get them out without magic (or cliches!). It is not an easy task, and audiences will be on the edge of their seat!
