Synopsis
From the creators of Shrek comes DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls, a smart, funny and irreverent comedy about the search for happiness, and just how far some will go to get it. This hilarious film transports audiences to a colorful, wondrous world populated by the overly optimistic Trolls, who have a constant dance in their step and a song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have Trolls in their stomachs. After the Bergens invade Troll Village, Poppy (Anna Kendrick), the happiest Troll ever born, and the overly-cautious curmudgeonly Branch (Justin Timberlake) set off on a journey to rescue her friends. Together, this mismatched duo embarks on a mission full of adventure and mishaps – trying to tolerate each other long enough to get the job done. Utilizing music to further the film's narrative, the Trolls soundtrack is produced by Justin Timberlake and features five original songs, including songs by Justin Timberlake and Gwen Stefani, in addition to a number of classic hits from the ‘60s – ‘80s.

How far would you go to search for happiness? An overly optimistic and happy Troll, Poppy, was determined to get her friends back from the pessimistic Bergens, who feasted on Trolls to experience happiness. She was joined by an unlikely partner, the extremely cautious Branch, on this mission full of singing, dancing and *ding* “Hug time!” in this colourful world of Trolls

The Good
The music goes so well with the story that you can feel not just the happy emotions coursing through your veins, but also the down moments when the Trolls faced the seemingly insurmountable challenges. With Anna Kendrick as Poppy, Justin Timberlake as Branch, and Zooey Deschanel as Bridget, just to name a few, get ready for some eargasm and don’t forget to groove to the music!

The world is not all cupcakes and rainbows. But Trolls can definitely add some colours and happiness to all the grey gloominess floating around. Poppy’s inexplicable optimism is sometimes what we all need to tide us through difficult moments. Indeed, happiness is contagious as Poppy influenced not just the characters on screen, but it can spread off screen to the audience as well. Get doubly infected with a 3D ticket to this happy place!

The (Not That) Bad
More of “Stars~ shining bright above~ you~” when Poppy sang looking up at the starry sky, please! -cues glistening eyes- Just one line is obviously not enough when Anna Kendrick’s voice is so beautiful.

Trolls had incorporated a little parody of the iconic Cinderella. While it is not a bad parody per se, you can sort of glimpse at the ending which takes out the fun in anticipating and wondering how the story would play out.

And The Summary
Trolls illustrates how far Poppy, the leader of the Trolls and also the happiest Troll ever born, would go to get happiness back through singing, dancing and hugging. And maybe scrapbooking. Packed with songs tailored to the narrative, this animation allows you to groove along with the music and may colour your world a little brighter.
