In a city of humanoid animals, a hustling theater impresario's attempt to save his theater with a singing competition becomes grander than he anticipates even as its finalists find that their lives will never be the same.
From the creators of Shrek comes the most smart, funny, irreverent animated comedy of the year, DreamWorks' Trolls. This holiday season, enter a colorful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach. Featuring original music from Justin Timberlake, and soon-to-be classic mash-ups of songs from other popular artists, the film stars the voice talents of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Russell Brand, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, Gwen Stefani, and many more. DreamWorks' TROLLS is a fresh, broad comedy filled with music, heart and hair-raising adventures. In November of 2016, nothing can prepare you for our new Troll world.Written by

10 year prior to the release of Trolls (2016), fellow DreamWorks Animation film Over the Hedge (2006) featured a scene with a Troll Doll of which this film is based off. See more »
When Creek confirms to Poppy that he is selling out all of the trolls, he suggests he made the deal immediately after being nearly eaten. Because of that, there would have been no reason for King Gristle to have Creek in the locket during the date scene. (It's more likely Creek would have been helping Chef find the other trolls.) Unless Chef had planned have Creek in the locket to lure Poppy to a trap. See more »
Once upon a time in a happy forest in the happiest tree lived the happiest creatures the world has ever known. The Trolls.
[two Trolls speak gibberish]
They loved nothing more than to sing, and dance, and hug. Dance, and hug, and sing, and dance, and sing, and hug, and dance,
and hug, and dance, and sing, and hug, and dance, and hug.
[Poppy sped up so fast that one of the trolls cries and faints]
But then one day, the Trolls were discovered by a Bergen!

Justin Timberlake is a well known singer/songwriter, with his all time hit song being, "Can't Stop the Feeling." His recent appearance in the movie "Trolls" capitalized on that. The movie runs song after song, featuring the mentioned song as the ending notes of joy. I'm fifteen. I think that this wasn't a waste of time and money. I have little brothers. They would watch this movie 10 times if they could. Making my feelings towards the movie above par.
As a fan of music, I appreciated the songs that were both featured and played. Justin did a great job working with other artists such as Ariana Grande to come up with the movie's melodic soundtrack. Anna Kendrick definitely sings her handful of the music, with the majority of them being upbeat, live life to the fullest sort of songs. This is great if you enjoy a catchy song that gets stuck in your head throughout the day. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a song played on loop every now and then.
This movie was a very predictable movie, with having nearly everything being wrapped in a nice, glitter-filled bow. When the inciting event came around, I could think for one minute and depict how the movie would end. But, I guess it was nice to listen to all the songs whilst my prediction unfolded.
I think that if you are a child who is looking for a fairly humorous, childish movie, then "Trolls" is your film. A mom who has children should consider this movie for a fun weekend with the kids. Who knows? Maybe she will have a nice song stuck in her head too. I would suggest this movie for all who would like some laughs and a catchy tune.
