I was confident Nicholas Stoller's Storks would take the prize for most obnoxious family entertainment of the year, but Trolls -- another garish, computer-animated comedy -- instantly lowers the bar.

One character farts glitter and another poops cupcakes. You could not ask for better in-movie metaphors.

Despite the tiresome story, it's a hard film to dislike.

"Trolls" isn't likely to advance mankind in any significant way, but it's a harmless adventure with a few toe-tapping musical numbers and a positive message of togetherness and teamwork.

"Trolls" combines dreadful kindergarten humor (one troll poops cupcakes) with a feeble plot, much padded with high-fructose-corn-syrup versions of pop and R&B classics.

Exuberant, busy and sometimes funny, DreamWorks Animation's "Trolls" is determined to amuse.

You simply will walk out -- or perhaps dance out -- of the theater feeling very happy yourself.

Ultimately, the "get happy" moral of the story, while trite compared to something like Inside Out, is sufficiently sweet enough for its audience. Did you expect more from a piece of candy?

As infernally sugary as this movie may sound on paper, and however mercenary its commercial intentions, it's hard to resist ...

Little ones may find the perpetually furious Chef a bit too threatening. But there's never a riotously candy-coloured scene or a spirited song far away ...

Energetic and vibrant, "Trolls" is hardly the throwback grown-ups might expect to the bad old days of cartoons conceived as toy ads rather than entertainment.

All that humor, color and happiness is an undeniable delight, making you tap your feet and, as Timberlake sings, feel as if you've got sunshine in your pocket.

The characters are clichés and the plot is assembly-line predictable.

The movie's serotonin pumps like a fire hose. It's almost impossible not to surrender to the bliss.
November 3, 2016
A derivative madcap money machine that is all about ensuring that DreamWorks, which has had few hits other than sequels in recent years, has a fresh pipeline of steady revenue.

The movie is light enough on its feet and moves briskly to the perfect length for parents with wiggly children in tow.

Just when you're getting tempted to check your watch and Google "Trolls movie running time," Timberlake breaks into song, and everything is all right again.

It's hard not to smile when watching Trolls, a sweet and humorous take on the pursuit of happiness.

A pretty standard piece of subpar DreamWorks product: loud and shiny, more than a tad frantic despite a generic set of characters, written and directed by in-house lifers.

There's something about the neon-tinted, sugar-smacked highs of "Trolls" that can be bizarrely infectious. When it's weirder, it's better.
