As parents we expect most movies we take our kids to, to be more forthem and feel lucky if we get a few laughs. Trolls disappoints evenmediocre expectations. It's totally reliant on colors, noises, and thesinging voices of the lead characters. Many movies have adult jokeswhich children don't need to hear. This one has them, except they arenot funny. The adults in the theater with me laughed at maybe 1/20adult jokes. My son in the 7- 10 yr old range did say he really likedit, but when I asked him why his response was, "I liked how everyonewas happy," and "the trolls." The moral takeaway that was slightlypresent was lost in the pop. There are plenty of kids' movies that thewhole family can be entertained and even moved by. Skip this one.

No really, it did. I couldn't believe how nice this movie made me feelas I was watching it. The story is a pretty standard hero's journey,but with the evil trolls or grendels or whatever eating happy trolls toget happy themselves. It seemed a little dark at first, but everythingworks out in the end of course, as this is a kids movie. It shows goodand bad in equal measure, which I believe is how we should educatekids, not keep them in a bubble. The lessons it teaches are actuallynice, don't give up, persevere, happiness is within. The boy troll(Timberlake) is so funny, especially in the beginning. Anna Kendrick ishilarious with snappy dialogue. The songs are a bit old fashioned, thefact that the writer is nostalgic really stands out. But they fit thestory, rather than being just music breaks, so it's good.

I just loved it, and the kids just loved it too!
My boys (4 and 2) watched with smiles on their faces and even boppedalong to the soundtrack which just spills over with happy, upliftingsongs. All of which are sung beautifully.
The story has a real moral without it being overpowering or boring forthe kids. We can all learn something from these adorable little dudes,and of course Briget, the Bergen who dares to believe in happiness!
It's fun, glittery, happy and full of singing, dancing, love, bigrainbow hair, and just general joy.
If you don't love it, you need to look harder for your happiness, it'sin us all somewhere y'know 😘
