Director: Mike Mitchell
Starring: Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake
Studio: DreamWorks Animation
Rated: PG (For some mild rude humor)
The story revolves around our heroes who hide from monsters who want to eat them because they believe the only way to be happy is to eat a troll. I can understand the logic a bit seeing that the trolls spend all their time singing, dancing, being nice to each other, and even have synchronized watches to let them know when it has been an hour and, thus, it is time to give whoever is close by a hug. The sole exception in the group is Branch (Justin Timberlake, who also acted as a music supervisor for this film), who doesn’t sing, doesn’t smile, and is even colorless. He knows that the monsters (whose name I can’t remember for the life of me) are still out there and still want to eat them. He does have a soft spot for Princess Poppy (Anna Kendrick) who thinks nothing but positive thoughts and the best of the world. Of course this means she is the one who has to save her friends when they are captured by the monsters.
