    This enchanted movie features songs, a lot of action, humor, and a good message. Poppy, who is always happy, likes Branch, who reminds her that life isn’t all “cupcakes and rainbows.” There are a few scenes in which a big creature eats a troll that betrayed his people, but none of these kinds of scenes are graphic. No child at the screening I attended seemed frightened. The trolls are loyal to one another, incorporating the philosophy of “No troll left behind!” We are thrilled and delighted to award “Trolls” our Dove Family-Approved Seal for all ages. These are the kind of trolls your kids will love!

    Parents need to know that Trolls is a cute, colorful adventure inspired by the tall-haired troll dolls that first became popular in the 1960s. It centers on peppy troll Princess Poppy (voiced by Anna Kendrick), who teams up with grumpy pessimist Branch (Justin Timberlake) to rescue her friends from the troll-hungry Bergens. Along the way everyone learns lessons about inner happiness, never giving up, and being proud of who you are. Everything has a fuzzy, felted look to it, which softens some of the danger and peril. But little kids are still likely to be scared by the greedy, hungry Bergens. And they may well hide their eyes when Poppy and her friends flee from danger and have several narrow escapes. There's also a sad moment when Branch remembers losing someone he loved. Two of the Bergens flirt, striking some "sexy" poses and exchanging a couple of mild innuendoes. Bodily function humor includes the projectile-glitter farts of Poppy's sparkly friend, Guy Diamond, whose glittery buttocks are also visible. Expect a few uses of "OMG"/"oh my gah" (the ending of the word is left undefined) and "stupid"/other insults. But in the end, what you'll remember are the great songs, the strong themes of friendship and empathy, and the fun characters.

    Parents trolling for family fare at the multiplex need look no further than "Trolls" (Fox). This loopy but charming animated comedy -- which, happily, has nothing whatever to do with bad behavior on the internet -- makes enjoyable viewing for a wide range of age groups, excluding only the very youngest. Though its originates with a product line of plastic dolls, directors Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn's infectiously fun 3-D fable feels more like a party than a commercial. In fact, the best way to gauge the sensibility underlying their brightly hued, music-laden celebration might be to imagine a preteen girl taking over a 1970s discotheque.

    Grade: A Rating: PG, 100 minutes In a Nutshell: This sugary sweet DreamWorks movie is like watching a bag of colorful Skittles sing, dance and hug for an hour and a half. What’s not to like? The trolls are way cuter than those dolls that were around when I was a kid. I mean, one troll poops cupcakes and another one farts glitter. Totes adorbs. As the trailer says, this is a “musical adventure that proves one voice can change the world.” It’s a happy journey, perfect for all ages. If you’re a cynical adult who hasn’t had children, this movie could be torture for you. Uplifting theme: Find your happy place. “Happiness is inside all of us. Sometimes you just need someone to help you find it.” – Branch “Happiness isn’t something you put inside. It’s already there.” – Princess Poppy “There’s always a bright side.” – Princess Poppy Friendship, unity, teamwork, togetherness. We need each other. Things I liked: This fun flick is filled with toe-tapping music. There are a lot of familiar songs you can sing along to, as well as some new ones you’ll instantly like. Some of them have great messages for your kids, like, “I’m not giving up today. I will get back up again” sung by Anna Kendrick. The trolls rescue the music and the music rescues them. Speaking of combining music with animation in the film, Anna Kendrick said in an interview with Regal Theaters, “It just feels like they belong together.” Anna is precious as Princess Poppy. Super colorful. Even the color combinations are happy. They use the lack of color to illustrate attitudes and states of mind as well. It's simple symbolism that children can understand, but it works effectively. Cliché’d dance number at the end, but still fun and definitely appropriate for this story. You'll leave the theater in a good mood. I know fanny packs are super dorky, but they sure are practical, right? I thought it was hilarious that Chef Bergen wore one. Speaking of Chef, I love Christine Baranski in everything she does. I liked that there was a little character named Cooper (played by Ron Runches), because it's my son’s name. The animation is really good. I’ve never seen felt, yarn, glitter, and fabric done so well before! You really feel like you can reach out and touch them. Funny, fat crow. If you wondered why Zooey Deschanel was missing for weeks from her starring role in the TV show “New Girl”, you’ll be happy to hear her sing and voice Bridget, the scullery maid. Justin Timberlake’s voice is a welcome addition to the animated world. Once this movie hits the DVD market (March 2017), parents won’t mind this playing on the TV a hundred times a day. Well, for a little while at least. Scrapbooking! Things I didn’t like: Merchandising for this film seems blatantly obvious, yet even the strongest objectors will probably secretly want to buy one of these adorable trolls. The whole idea of merchandising these products is ironic, considering the theme of this movie is that you can’t consume happiness. Ha ha The cast is absolutely fantastic. It’s a shame that so many talented actors only get a short amount of screen/voice time compared to the main leads. The list includes Gwen Stefani, James Corden, John Cleese, Jeffrey Tambor, Russell Brand, Kunal Nayyar, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Not all of the humor works. The movie poster could have been way cuter. Happy lines: “Hug time is all the time.” – Poppy “I know life’s not all cupcakes and rainbows, but I’d rather go through life thinking it mostly is.” – Poppy Funny lines: “Solid burn, Branch.” – Poppy “Why don’t you scrapbook them to freedom?” – Branch “I don’t like the looks of him. I mean, who wears socks without shoes?” – Branch Tips for parents: Other than the troll who farts cupcakes, there is nothing objectionable about this movie. The monsters are called Bergens, but they’re not super scary. Young children should be able to watch this movie without getting frightened. Talk to your children about what makes them happy and how they can help each other to find joy in everyday life. Let the merchandising begin!

    What Works? The characters of Trolls are engaging, due mostly to the extremely talented cast. The odd couple Kendrick-Timberlake duo is pitch perfect, and Zooey Deschanel as the marginalized Bergen Bridgit, shines in an unforgettable voice performance. The comedy is mostly clever and not too silly for adults. The integration of music with the story is delightful, utilizing both familiar and original songs throughout the film (it certainly doesn’t hurt that the movie's signature song, Timberlake's own "Can't Stop the Feeling," has been tearing up the charts this summer). The full throttle attitude of rainbows and happiness, juxtaposed with all the the things trying to eat the Trolls, makes for some hilarious moments. The cinematography is radiant, gorgeous and so painstakingly tactile you would swear that it actually exists outside the animators' laptops. The film's message is unusual (for a kids' movie) and inspiring. What Doesn't? The buddy comedy plot, in which a happy extrovert is forced to find common ground with a grumpy introvert, is not particularly original. The film spends a little too much time on one or two overdone subplots. The ensemble of secondary characters could have been given more screen time at the core of film, because some really talented actors end up as little more than window dressing. As with every kids' movie that comes from a major studio these days, you can just see the annoying mountains of merchandising set up to entice little eyes.

    The film-version Trolls aren't so bug-eyed, round-tummied and muggly as the ones we might remember. They sing, they dance, they hug. A lot. And they set out to turn even the most grumpy grumblers onto their form of get-up-and-party revelry through a combination of brightly colored felt, sticky sweet temperaments, sparkles and bouncy karaoke tunes from the '80s. And you know what? It all adds up pretty well. Oh, there are indeed quite a few toiletly, expel-a-cupcake giggles that parents will have to bear with here. And more characters are gobbled up by scrapbook-like versions of goofy monsters than you might expect. But the music is peppy, the heroes are likeable, the bad guys get their comeuppance, and nothing is really too scary. In fact, this let's-all-get-along tale is pretty much exactly the kind of felt-and-glitter silliness you might expect from a movie about something you used to keep in your pencil box.

    The sour taste I initially had about this obvious marketing vehicle was also sweetened by examples of teamwork, the wisdom to mix a little reality into our hopes and dreams, and the reminder that singing, dancing and hugging really can be a good remedy for a bad attitude. So if you find your appetite for a feel-good story more satiated than you expected by the time the credits roll, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

    “Trolls” is pure delight, lots of jokes, great music, and a surprisingly wise take on the elusive quest for happiness. It’s tricky to make self-consciously adorable characters happy without being sugary, but it works because they understand the difference between happiness based on generosity, honesty, and courage and pleasure, based on sensation.
