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.

The DreamWorks animation and a voice cast led by Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake are both great and every time the pace threatens to slow, someone launches into yet another disco mash-up. It's no Shrek, but it will pass a rainy afternoon.

"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.

DreamWorks Animation is not, and never will be, Pixar or even near it. Films like this prove my point. They do make great films to watch, but sometimes they… More
