Consensus: Trolls brings its instantly recognizable characters to the big screen in a colorful adventure that, while geared toward the younger set, isn't without rewards for parents.

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

"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.

Laramie Movie Scope

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).

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

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

Irish Times

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.

"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.

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

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

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.

Trolls is a neon-tinted explosion of glitter, music and fast-paced humor. It may not be an animated masterpiece but there are some very creative and charming… More

You may think this is aimed at a younger audience but the songs will definitely keep adults entertained too. Far better than you may think, given the subject… More

It's difficult to not feel indifferent about a movie like Trolls. In the end, it's fine. Is it somewhat offensive in terms of originality and cheap… More
