SPOILER ALERT!  SPOILER ALERT!

My 4-year-old son (sedated from cold medicine, but still…) thought it was okay.  Didn’t really understand the premise, all he remembers is the snow monster, but he wasn’t frightened by it. 

I found it cute & funny, with an original story line, but some of the unnecessary twists & turns in the story line (e.g. (1) that Anna would remember having fun with her sister, but for some reason would have to forget that her sister had magical powers, (2) one piece of ice through the heart won’t slow her down, but two is potentially fatal) will be lost on a young child. 

It’s still entertaining though, and the concept of love warming the heart made for some interesting discussions with kids after the movie.

As the reviewer noted, though Olaf is one of the most memorable characters in the movie, he has little screen time.  I was hoping he would be an entertaining presence throughout like Mushu’s presence in Mulan, but that just wasn’t the case here.

My girls are 9 and 11.  They very much enjoyed the movie.

SPOILER ALERT—

The thing that really stood out to them was that this princess, although she thought that she would need a prince to saver her, ended up actually saving herself.  This message was DEFINITELY not lost on them.

My mother got this for our 4 year old’s birthday. She loved it and everyone got a few good laughs from it. Nothing scared her though I don’t think she fully understands the concept of the movie. She of course loved the song “Let It Go”. And her dad and I both admitted it was one of the best Disney dongs we’ve heard in a long time.

Reading the “Content Details” on this site would make me not want her to watch this. They need to be rewritten. The “Character being impaled” is a snowman…not a human. If I hadn’t already seen it, I’d be scared to show any kid this movie. “A woman wears an off-the-shoulder dress with a high slit.” Wow….what about almost every other disney princess that wore an off the shoulder dress and the movie was rated G? I think this really needs to be rewritten.

But other than that I love this movie and so does our 4 year old girl. She has watched it over and over!
