Frozen Turd

A buddy here loaned us his copy of Frozen, thinking our kids would want to see it (his girls, who are of an age with our kids, love it completely). We did a screener last night, which we always do with kids movies like this. Why, you say? It’s frickin’ Disney, what could go wrong? Well, generally, nothing. But our boy has always been particularly sensitive when it comes to families being torn apart, or people going missing. Not that he’s ever experienced anything of the sort in his own life, or has any reason to believe he’ll have to – he just likes to have all his people together. It’s a comfort thing. And Disney movies are great ones for mucking up families. So, we check it out first.

Being Friday night, we got into the wine. I also find alcohol makes watching Disney movies far more palatable. I know these films are for kids, but if a grown-up’s gotta watch it, booze helps. Anyway, for all of you who have seen it, Frozen is a fairly typically-plotted Disney movie. Although, refreshingly, the point isn’t that the girl needs to be saved by a guy in order to validate her existence, so that was a switch for once. Still, it was pretty bad. I can’t imagine it without the wine.

And the songs! That’s why I’m ranting about this on here, after building a watch with all that other crap. This is a music site and I’m popping in here to say that I found the songs in this movie (and characters are always, it seems, breaking into song), brutally bad. Just terrible, grating and insipid things that are apparently very popular… the CD is currently Amazon.ca’s #1 soundtrack CD and #2 in all music CDs on the site… My mind boggles as to why, but we all make choices, don’t we. If you want to put that shite in you’re ears, you go right ahead. I felt assaulted by just how bad it all was, personally.

Anyway, we won’t be letting our boy see this movie until he’s older, if he ever even wants to see it. Why? With the way he is right now, the scene with the ship in the ocean would mess him up for a week. And that’s without having to explain to him why they separate the sisters… Anyway. Secretly, I will also be withholding that movie because I don’t want those shitty songs in my kids’ heads. If doing a screener of a film before your kids see it is being a responsible parent, so is making sure he doesn’t have to hear that crap.

    • 15!! Wow, I figured this was for little kids. Well, good on her if she likes it. Surprised her sisters don’t like it too? Or maybe just not as much as she does?

      I’ve got a music room set up, Deke. You and me can go hide there with some Maiden and some beers while the girls watch that tripe.

  4. I haven’t seen this film, but Geoff’s little girl sang ” Let it go, let it gooooo” in the ALS bucket challenge video…and then my husband works in media and I guess one of the entertainment shows he airs played that song. It’s sort of an ear worm lol

    • By all reports, the song absolutely is an earworm. I remember Geoff’s video! I know the buddy who loaned this movie to me said his two girls (5 and 3) absolutely LOVE that movie. I know it’s really popular. I suppose at some point we may have to relent and let our guys watch it, but I’m waiting for them to ask and they haven’t yet.
