Huh.  Since I have no kids, I've not seen the movie, or heard the music.

So when does the XXX parody porno come out on video?  Because you know they have to be planning one.

As the father of a seven-year old girl I will always remember the winter of 2014 as frequent snow days filled with an endless parade of rainbow loom stuff accompanied by a non-stop Frozen soundtrack. Whatever doesn't kill me makes me...well, slightly less sane that's for sure.

Finally saw Frozen and heard the song.

I don't get it.  The song isn't anything memorable and the movie was just another Disney movie - and I wouldn't rank it in the top 20 of Disney films personally.  To each their own, I guess.

You obviously have no daughters.

It's a pretty good film, for Disney.

You aren't in Disney ' s target demographic. If you were, you would be instantly addicted to both. They are crazy good at zeroing in on their expected customers.

There must be a lot of closeted young lesbians that this movie is speaking out too... That must be the secret of its success. Anything to get the next generation of young women tribbing is fine by me though....

Let it go, let it go!
let your fear of the taco go!
Let it go, let it go!
Let's both lay on the floor!

Ladies tell your parents to go to hell
I'll keep it real, I love the way that she makes me feel!

That fishy smell never bothered me anyway...

Wow, so either I'm not the unique snowflake I thought I was, or I've decided to take my sanity and let it go, creating an alternate personality/fark alt who is living my exact life with a slightly older daughter. Or maybe I'm the alt.

Are you involved with a group of middle-class inventors trying to make the next big gadget in your garage?

I can't get past "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" The song alone makes me puddle, but the real waterworks come when I watch the sequence in the movie. Anna begging for Elsa to come out of her room, coupled with the images of the deaths of their parents, just tear me up.

Haven't seen the movie other than clips played here and there in stores, and only just heard the song last week. Compared to music out there now its like when trolls got Devo to be number one on TRL back in the day. The song isn't bad but compared to Pharell's I'm Happy and the rest of the crap playing on the radio? it's farking amazing.

My daughter has been singing let it go every day since she saw the movie..... in December!!!

It is good and the songs are catchy

I'm starting to feel extremely lucky that my boys were more into the Lego Movie, and that "Everything is Awesome" at least has The Lonely Island going for it.

That was my take away from it.  So you have a daughter with magical powers that are clearly understood by the ones who describe those powers to you, and your solution is to lock said daughter in her room instead of seeking ways to further understand and control said powers yourself in the hope that they will just "go away'.

/also, there was a definite missed opportunity to go on an invincible ice-army fueled campaign of regional conquest.

My daughters are obsessed with this movie, so I have not been able to avoid thinking too much about it. Maybe I'm too American, but I can't help but come away from the film wondering how her powers could be exploited for profit. Certainly the ability to create an army of ice monsters would cut down on military expenditures, and there have to be industries where ice powers can be useful. I bet nobody would be shouting "monster" when the Queen is making them all stinking rich.

And yeah, there had to be better methods for training her. If the trolls know about this stuff (enough to distinguish between innate and acquired powers, and the relative effects of power blasts on different anatomical structures), they may know someone older with ice powers who might be persuaded to tutor her.

The Idina Menzel version you heard in the movie isn't my kind of music, but it's pretty good.

The Demi Lovato version on the Billboard Top 100 doesn't sound anything like the song in the movie. It's absolute crap.

It's an allegory for sheltering your kids too much and not giving them the guidance they need to survive in the world.  It's a fear that is rampant, and possibly valid, in today's culture.  Of course, it has been partially true for every generation, cultural inertia justified by the thought that the way things are now are best, and tampering would spell doom!

I liked the movie, it was fun, the singing was good, the songs are catchy.  The underlying themes are interesting, especially when you realize they are explored by a girl with magical powers, a princess running around the tundra in a ball gown, a young man who is way too attached to his reigndeer, and a talking snowman.

It basically has the same strengths and weaknesses as Beauty and the Beast.  Stronger protagonist than usual, the 'evil' character being evil not really being narratively necessary (and kind of breaking down under fridge logic), good soundtrack and characterization, decent supporting cast, a couple of scenes that are just complete non-sequitirs (trolls), focus on the adventure rather than the romance, basis on a myth that involved a LOT more rape than the movie version...

Fairly understandable why people enjoyed it, it was based around one of their better brothers-grimm based movies.

I like Menzel - I've been listening to Wicked & Frozen on Pandora - but yeah the Demi cover is an abomination.

"Let It Go" is currently one of my favorite songs, along with "Defying Gravity".

I am not a fan of Defying Gravity, or of Wicked in general.  Or now that I think of it, not even of Idina Menzel.  I've seen her in a couple of productions (Rent, Wicked, etc.) and never liked her voice.  But when I saw the "Let it Go" sequence of Frozen, I was blown away.  The hairs on the back of my neck raised, and I got that shiver down my spine that only happens when an over-the-top piece of music kicks my ass.

And /agree with the Demi Lovato comment.  I have nothing against the girl.  She's a very capable actress and a good singer in her own right.  But she simply couldn't "own" the piece like Menzel.

It was okay. I don't get the fuss, but the film was alright. It dragged like crazy towards the end of the second act, and way too many scenes that did the same thing/same discussion. Songs were okay, but yeah, nothing to write home about.

I tried to avoid it, but heard it yesterday at the local (non-Disney) amusement park. I told my husband that she could have at least sung the right lyrics. Yuck.
