Troll (movie review)


  It's showtime parents of little people.  What are you plans this weekend?  Regardless of mine this is where we went today!  They say if you can't beat 'em join 'em.  I try to get to the theater before the crowd and the matinee is over so it's a win-win all around.

  Trolls opened today and with all the hype and promotions in stores on shelves and McDonald's.

 Your kids have been bound to have heard it somewhere.  My kids heard the 3 day countdown and were more excited as each day passed.  Of course a recent birthday gift fueled the excitement.

  Trolls stars Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick joined by a bunch of other celebrities.  You can almost easily identify the others as soon as they speak.  The movie runs for a comfortable hour and 33 minutes.  This fantasy/adventure film is appropriately rated PG.

    This movie is full of bright, vivid colors.  A lot of singing (which surprised me) and some dancing to accompany it.  The songs are great though for any 80's child who also had the original Troll toy anyways.  

  There was an actual storyline and it was easy to follow. Enough troll characters with individual personalities to keep you entertained.   The trolls are all about happiness and want everyone else to be happy to.  These trolls party, do makeovers and give hourly hugs.  This is a nice movie for the family.  Kids will enjoy the trolls and colors will mesmerize them.  Adults hang out and enjoy the songs and jokes.

  Have a good weekend and if you going to the movies what will you be seeing?
