I don't know if a six-year-old -- who the animation appears designed for in terms of style, brightness, and color -- would get any of the jokes, but as a person trapped in my house, I appreciated them.

"Trolls: World Tour" is not a mindblowing cinematic achievement, but it is exactly what kids, and parents, need right now. That's where it hits the high note.

The plot gives "World Tour" an opportunity to cycle through countless hits, and it does so so speedily that the film often feels less like a story than an impatient, candy-colored battle of the bands.

Reader, I wept.

It seems unlikely that World Tour will change the way we watch movies. But, I s*** you not, it is worth watching.

Kids will probably be tickled by the slapstick humor and whimsical dance numbers.

It works best when it just sticks closely to the refrain of its big closing number: "Just sing!"

"Trolls World Tour" is the equivalent of jazz fingers being mercilessly waved in your face: sure it's annoying, but after awhile you can't help but smile.
April 12, 2020
The problem isn't rapidity, per se, so much as the uses to which it's put: sudden transformations and plunges and general hyper-ness.
April 12, 2020
Whether it's Sam Rockwell doing a down-home drawl or Anna Kendrick singing a few bars of a troll-centric riff on "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun," Trolls World Tour throws everything at its disposal into the air.

This over-caffeinated sequel to the 2016 original feels more dutiful than dazzling, but this animated fluffball will entertain quarantined kids and grownups won't need controlled substances to enjoy the piñata-like explosions of noise and color.
April 10, 2020
It's too aimless and loud for grownups... and while there's a lot to look at and hear in a jukebox musical manner, it's hard to imagine many kids understanding jokes at the expense of smooth jazz and yodeling.

While the genre-bridging premise affords the film more variety and verve than its sugary predecessor, the movie... still gives you the sensation of being barricaded in a karaoke lounge where all the attendees have snorted Sweet Tarts.
April 10, 2020
It often looks great, it often sounds great, and it achieves its main goal of delivering a sugar rush to a world in great need of some intense joy right now.
April 10, 2020
In the absence of inspiration, Trolls World Tour offers little more than speedy delivery, predictable world-building, and dutiful karaoke.

If you start to get a headache, remember you were warned.

Again, it's no great shakes as a film. But it is a pleasant-enough diversion, and at the moment that's just enough.
April 10, 2020
It's a shadow of its predecessor, a regurgitation of some of the elements that made the first one popular but without the sense of spontaneous fun.
April 10, 2020
While not quite as subversive and refreshing as the first "Trolls," "World Tour" offers endless cuteness, an impressive voice cast and just enough depth for grownups and children alike to chew on.

I admit to having a soft spot for any picture that resembles an explosion at the glitter factory. But it's still a factory.
