Doorman-Narrator: Well, nobody can stop time forever, Paul.
Paul: What do you mean? Why not?
Doorman-Narrator: Well, when time stops, nothing grows. Not a plant, not animals, not even boys.

I AM the boy who loved trolls!
25 February 2002 | by (Wisconsin, USA) – See all my reviews

I was 8 years old the first time I saw this movie, when it originally aired on tv. Even then, something about the storyline really struck a chord with me. As silly as it may seem, I believe this movie tells it like it really is--you don't have to change who you are or stop believing in magic just because you grow up. I love this movie. I am the boy who loved trolls. Do you believe in magic? :)
