Disclosure: We received advance tickets to see this movie. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
My kids have talked about Frozen for weeks. I have it on my calendar that we were going to see it and I heard daily that we were going “soon”. They were so excited when we finally were going to see the movie they had been waiting for!
Last night we saw Frozen and we had some mixed reactions in our house. I loved it, despite some very sad parts. My kids loved it and even Jemma stayed awake for the movie (that’s rare). But, my husband felt it was very depressing and said he wasn’t a fan.
I don’t want to give the story away to you but I agree that there are some very sad parts in the movie. In fact, the majority of the movie has sad parts. But, I also felt that there was plenty of funny scenes. I loved Olaf (seen above) and felt he brought humor to the movie even in parts of sadness or fear. I loved Sven (a reindeer) and he also was fun throughout. There is wit and humor spun throughout and I enjoyed that a lot!
I think my husband missed the mark, missed the point even, of the movie. This movie does have some sad and serious parts but the whole point is that love conquers all. The movie hits that on the head in more than one way. The love felt for Elsa by her sister is seen from the very first scene. The love Elsa feels is as well, despite what she goes through. There is love and friendship everywhere in this movie and I think it makes up for any sad parts.
Would I recommend it? Absolutely. I loved the movie and would even like to see it again. My kids weren’t phased by any serious parts and found the funny outweighed anything else. They are still talking about the movie today. Don’t be swayed by my husband’s thoughts on it but do keep in mind that there are some sad, serious scenes throughout. In the end, you won’t be let down though. Everyone loves a happy ending!
Frozen can be seen in theaters now!
