What's weird is that the things that I liked about it are the things I usually hate about these types of movies. This movie does pop culture references, cover songs...but for some reason, in this movie, it works.
The DreamWorks animation and a voice cast led by Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake are both great and every time the pace threatens to slow, someone launches into yet another disco mash-up. It's no Shrek, but it will pass a rainy afternoon.
But in this new Hollywood animated children's film, Trolls are small, incurably sweet and dedicated to singing, dancing and hugging. They're so happy, they make the Smurfs looks like a bunch of French existentialists stuck in a no-smoking zone.
A musical cartoon, brightened by pop songs, and original songs, sung by Anna Kendrick ('Pitch Perfect') and Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and actor Justin Timberlake (who is also a songwriter and executive music producer of this film).
The five year olds for whom this ghastly piece of post-content confection is intended are unlikely to see beyond the bright colours, fast movement and hit song covers to realise it has one of the stupidest story set-ups ever to appear in a kids' film.
