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

  • David Fear on Rolling Stone  November 4, 2016.

 

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

  • Andrew Parker on Globe and Mail November 4, 2016.

 

“Trolls 2016” 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.

Where the film really impresses, though, is in its creative use of the animation medium itself; no DreamWorks film has ever experimented so much in so many ways.

 

Julie Washington – Cleveland Plain Dealer

Heartfelt and well-crafted, Trolls 2016 is an instant classic that kids will clamor to watch again and again when it’s available on DVD.

Trolls is cinematic junk food, but not just some sloppy greasy cheeseburger. It is one of those exquisitely pretty little cakes you find in really nice patisseries.

You may end up feeling like you just ate all of your Halloween candy in one night, but that’s about the worst you can say about Trolls 2016.

Manages to find a balance between loud, shiny and sickly sweet, and entertaining enough.

 

Matt Neal The Standard

Trolls 2016 is like Smurfs, but way better and way funnier and actually a good movie.

A repeating joke with James Corden’s troll never hits while the auto-tuned T-Pain troll is always – ALWAYS – funny.

I was confident Nicholas Stoller’s Storks would take the prize for most obnoxious family entertainment of the year, but Trolls — another garish, computer-animated comedy — instantly lowers the bar.

 

Vicky Roach Daily Telegraph (Australia)

November 30, 2016

As a piece of animation, Trolls is beautifully textured.

 

Leigh Paatsch Herald Sun (Australia)

November 30, 2016

This inoffensive, highly formulaic affair differs only from other average ‘toons in that it merrily pours on the audiovisual sugar to overload proportions.

There’s little memorable about Trolls, but you got to hand it to these weirdly happy little people — they sure know how to put a smile on a kid’s face.

Far more sufferable in execution than in concept.

 

Louise Keller Urban Cinefile

A candyfloss rainbow of colour, song and enchantment, this eye-popping family film is an undiluted hit of happiness…. A joyous, uplifting film that reminds us about the essence of fun.

 

Pilar Ayuso El Nuevo Herald (Miami)

November 23, 2016

Although the parents perhaps will fall asleep with its kindergarten humor, full of hugs and colorful cupcakes, the youngest will truly enjoy this film.

 

Emanuel Baez Cinefiloz

A film that easily infects the desire to dance, resulting in a product that aims much higher than just being an entertaining kids movie.

 

Jim Judy Screen It!

November 11, 2016

There’s enough “adult” material to keep parents and others amused and engaged, and the overall tone and pacing make the overall pic darn difficult to resist.

 

Jim Lane Sacramento News & Review

November 10, 2016

Directors Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn pepper the… musical numbers with splashy visual fripperies that underline and italicize the movie’s cheerful sweetness, reminding us of the fertile symbiotic relationship between music and animation.

 

Amy Wolfe Willamette Week

Every energetic scene is paired with well-known sing-alongs, for which Kendrick and Timberlake offer their talented vocals. And for an animated film built for short attention spans, the storyline stays pitch perfect. 

 

Robert Yaniz, Jr. – We Got This Covered

November 6, 2016

Based on the popular toy line, Trolls bears all the earmarks of a blatant cash-in on a recognisable property, with little imagination to speak of and predictable creative choices from beginning to end.

It’s like someone dropped a tab and walked through Toys R Us, started an existential conversation with a Troll doll, then totally tripped out at Michaels in the middle of the scrapbooking department.

 

Todd VanDerWerff Vox

November 4, 2016

It’s reasonably entertaining, with some good musical numbers and at least one goofily endearing performance. But it’s also just a little bit all over the place, with a story that often seems like a fairy-tale greatest hits album.

 

Kyle Smith New York Post

November 3, 2016

“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.

 

Andy Webster New York Times

November 3, 2016

Exuberant, busy and sometimes funny, DreamWorks Animation’s “Trolls” is determined to amuse.

 

Bill Stamets Chicago Sun-Times

November 3, 2016

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

 

Lindsey Bahr Associated Press

November 3, 2016

Ultimately, the “get happy” moral of the story, while trite compared to something like Inside Out, is sufficiently sweet enough for its audience. Did you expect more from a piece of candy?

 

Justin Change Los Angeles Times

November 3, 2016

As infernally sugary as this movie may sound on paper, and however mercenary its commercial intentions, it’s hard to resist…

 

Linda Bardnard Toronto Star

Little ones may find the perpetually furious Chef a bit too threatening. But there’s never a riotously candy-coloured scene or a spirited song far away…

 

Tom Russo  Boston Globe

November 3, 2016

Energetic and vibrant, “Trolls” is hardly the throwback grown-ups might expect to the bad old days of cartoons conceived as toy ads rather than entertainment.

 

Frank Swietek One Guy’s Opinion

November 3, 2016

You might label ‘Trolls’ as ‘F.T.O.’-meaning ‘for tots only,’ like the Smurfs, though the studio is obviously hoping it can appeal beyond that demo.

 

Sandie Angulo Chen Washington Post

November 3, 2016

All that humor, color and happiness is an undeniable delight, making you tap your feet and, as Timberlake sings, feel as if you’ve got sunshine in your pocket.

 

Kerry Lengel Arizona Republic

November 3, 2016

The characters are clichés and the plot is assembly-line predictable.

 

Leah Greenblatt Entertainment Weekly

November 3, 2016

The movie’s serotonin pumps like a fire hose. It’s almost impossible not to surrender to the bliss.

 

Susan Wloszczyna RogerEbert.com

A derivative madcap money machine that is all about ensuring that DreamWorks, which has had few hits other than sequels in recent years, has a fresh pipeline of steady revenue.

 

Dawn Burkes Dallas Morning News

The movie is light enough on its feet and moves briskly to the perfect length for parents with wiggly children in tow.

Just when you’re getting tempted to check your watch and Google “Trolls movie running time,” Timberlake breaks into song, and everything is all right again.

It’s hard not to smile when watching Trolls, a sweet and humorous take on the pursuit of happiness.

 

No wonder, the movie is in lots of awards lists for different category, such as Best Original Song, Outstanding Achievement in Character design, Production Design, Storyboarding, Voice Acting, Best Animated Feature, Music Supervision, Best Soundtrack Album, Best Soundtrack, etc. in Golden Globes USA 2017, Annie Awards 2017, Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards 2016, Hollywood Film Awards 2016, Hollywood Music in Media Awards 2016, Phoenix Film Critics Society Awards 2016, Satellite Awards 2016 and many more.
