The creators of Shrek thus compose an addictive musical remix of adorable characters, hilarious and emotional moments, catchy songs, colorful aesthetics... [Full review in Spanish]

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 story is a typical quest journey ... Along the way, our heroes learn moral lessons while cracking jokes and singing songs. Predictably, all gets worked out at the end.

Trolls is a fail-safe film that young parents can take their kids to, and hopefully enjoy a few chuckles themselves.

This animated film is like mainlining a rainbow, snorting Martha Stewart-brand glitter and drinking a glass of ecstasy-spiked champagne. You'll get a high off all the happy.

Director Mike Mitchell loads the movie with countless pop culture references that make the story telling both cute and cool.

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.

The music in Trolls is programmed by your local karaoke bar and sung like everyone's getting paid REALLY WELL.

Energetic, sure, though sometimes predictable, and periodically bland.

Filled with vibrant imagery & wall to wall with choice pop song selections, there is much to like yet not quite enough to fall head first in love with.

February 24, 2017's ultimately difficult to imagine older viewers finding much here to get truly worked up over.

...amounts to having glitter thrown in your eyes for 92 minutes.

What price, happiness?

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).
Full Review | Original Score: C+

Kendrick and Timberlake bring snappy comic timing, even when the dialogue could be wittier. Co-director Walt Dohrn steals the picture as a high-fiving cloud-bro.

December 27, 2016
The vivid design and fluid animation support a jukebox score of dreary familiarity, a screenplay of trite wordplay ('No troll left behind!') and a story of the utmost banality.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Where the film really impresses, though, is in its creative use of the animation medium itself; no DreamWorks film has ever experimented so much in so many ways.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Heartfelt and well-crafted, Trolls is an instant classic that kids will clamor to watch again and again when it's available on DVD.
