Frozen was our family movie night yesterday. My son seems to enjoy it, but my wife and I were pretty bored. It felt like forever for the film to get going, and lots of the musical numbers felt forced. You know, like they knew they’d be adapting it for Broadway so they had to pack in lots of set pieces. Even my son, at one point, asked why Anna “is singing the same song over and over.”
It got better once the “core team” was together — Anna, Kristoff, Sven, and Olaf. But it still was kind of all over the place for us. And I also felt like the film didn’t know whether it was about Anna or Elsa.
Mostly we’re stunned this was such a worldwide success.
