Movie Review: Frozen

Walt Disney Animation Studios has made a nice comeback over the last few years after stumbling with The Princess and the Frog. Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph ruled the box office and secured the holiday season for the Mouse, just like their film cousins, Pixar, in the summer. What was even better was both films were highly entertaining, taking something old (Fairy Tales & Arcade Games) and making it hip and cool. Telling a great story seemed more important than just selling toys with those two films. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same thing for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen.

Frozen is the musical tale of two princesses living in a Scandinavian-like, snowy kingdom. Anna is the normal one and Elsa is the queen to be with a secret hidden power. Can you guess what that special gift is by the title of the movie? After a predictable incident, Elsa flees and Anna follows with the help of a mountain man named Kristoff. The audience is then treated to numerous forgetful songs and a character that rivals one of the most important characters in the history of movies…

Olaf the snowman gives Jar Jar Binks a run for his money as one of the worst characters ever on film. I’m not kidding. The magical snowman that’s all over the marketing campaign is so unfunny and out-of-place in Frozen that it’s distracting to the film experience. I’ve been a big fan of Josh Gad who voices Olaf, but luckily no one is actually going to see this talented guy  as he voices his annoying character. Kids may love the goofy man-made of snow, but it ruined Frozen for me. The sub par songs and obvious attempt to just sell princess dolls before the holidays didn’t help much either.

Overall, I give Frozen 1.5 out of 4 stars.
