Storyline

Stanley is a kindhearted, popular troll who can create flowers with a mere touch. When Gnorga, the mean-spirited Queen of the Kingdom of Trolls discovers Stanley's secret, she banishes him to a faraway place where she assumes nothing green can grow - New York City! Taking refuge in Central Park, Stanley befriends two young children, Gus and his baby sister Rosie. The three share wonderful adventures until Gnorga decides to let her mischief-making magic loose in the Big Apple. Written by Lesley Sweeting (Taken from back of R1 DVD cover)

Troll: Oh, for a minute, I thought I saw one of them, um, um, uh, flower things.

Corny at times
27 July 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie... if you are a kid. If not, this movie will seem very boring and corny at times. I remember seeing this movie as a child, and thought it was very good, some scenes made me cry. But when I look back at the movie, it seemed to have lost that magic. Stanley, the troll, loves flowers, is cute and so are Gus and Rosie. However, I thought the music was terrible, and the smiley flowers annoyed me. The plot is really predictable, and the movie goes too far with the villain. I though Gnorga was annoying especially with the "I hate flowers" thing.
