Joey’s “Frozen” movie review.
Some of my fondest memories are going to the movies. Something about getting everyone in the car and sharing an experience. On November 30th, 2013 I took my mom, wife, sister in law and 3 nieces to Studio C in Okemos to see the new Disney film "Frozen." A few weeks back, I gave my mom tickets to see "Free Birds" and she hated it! She did see the trailer to "Frozen" and couldn't wait to take my 3 year old niece Kailynn.
I have never much cared for musicals. My favorite of all time is "South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut." I find musicals awkward and forced with the singer rarely catching the moment. This movie was made for girls of all ages and if a father gets dragged to the show... I can say, I have seen much worse. There is some cartoon eye candy in the form of "Elsa" the cursed girl with the frozen touch voiced by Idina Menzel. She is forced to become queen and at the coronation ceremony gets into a spat with her sister (Women... am I right guys?) and freezes the entire town. Elsa leaves the castle and builds a castle of ice in the mountains and goes through a pretty hot transformation.
In the meantime, her sister Anna voiced by "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" star Kristen Bell sets out to find her and get her to thaw out the town. On her travels, she meets up with "Kristoff" voiced by Jonathan Groff and a HILARIOUS talking snowman named "Olaf" voiced by Josh Gad. Josh should win an award for this performance.
The songs were really catchy and the voices were perfect for the parts. I seriously laughed out loud 5 times. It had a pretty decent message that didn't come off too preachy. My only criticism is, I could have used a little nudity. Is that too much to ask?
After the movie we went to the Meridian Mall so my niece could see Santa.
I doubt she will ever remember... But I always will. JP
