Storyline

Stanley (Dom DeLuise) is a kindhearted, popular troll who can create flowers with a mere touch. When Gnorga (Cloris Leachman), 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 (Phillip Glasser) and his baby sister Rosie (Tawny Sunshine Glover). 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)

[Stanley runs and bumps into a troll from behind]
Troll: Hey! Watch yourself!
[Stanley accidentally grows a flower]
Troll: Say, what was that?
[the troll laughs as Stanley drops his bag behind him and the flower jumps in]
Troll: Oh, for a minute, I thought I saw one of them, um, um, uh, flower things.
[the troll laughs]
Troll: That's a relief. I'd sure hate to have to tell the queen. Oh, well, have a rotten day!

A great Movie for young kids.
3 November 2009 | by ultrarobbie-1See all my reviews

A Great Family Movie. When I was a kid, I Always watched this movie. Stanley is a troll, but he is different from the others. He is Kind. He and his two new friends Rosie and Gus must defeat the Evil Troll Gnorga. The movie is Very well drawn, and the story is just very entertaining, and does spread a good message about having a Greener World. I would recommend this to all young ages, as it is a great tale and is a Must see, but may not be that appealing to older audiences. The characters are Great. Gnorga is Evil, and a great Enemy, and Stanley is a perfect Mood Uplifter, and Gnorga's Husband King Llort is really a kind Troll, but acts evil around her and is treated badly by her. Although some parts of the movie can be a bit scary for younger audiences, the movie is perfect for all.
