    Variety Scott Foundas

    This always enjoyable tale of mysterious magic, imperiled princesses and square-jawed men of action proves longer on striking visuals than on truly engaging or memorable characters.

    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    The film transcends its various borrowings and occasional stumblings with a modern, exuberant spirit that draws heat from Broadway-style musical numbers and, before and after everything else, from marvelous 3-D animation

    The Hollywood Reporter Todd McCarthy

    Energetic, humorous and not too cloying, as well as the first Hollywood film in many years to warn of global cooling rather than warming, this tuneful toon upgrades what has been a lackluster year for big studio animated fare.

    It's entertaining, and following an old Disney tradition Frozen works some old-school magic in its nonhuman characters.

    The impact of this sisterhood fable on viewers should be as warm and rapturous as Olaf the snowman’s dream of summer. Child, teen or septuagenarian, you’ll warm to Frozen.

Back to Classic Disney by joycie31728
One of the best Disney movies I've seen in a long time. For the first time in a long they went back to their roots of fairy tales.

The Frozen Delight Of Animation by stanleymcclure
Frozen is a must go movie for it is a tremendous energetic packed filled animals, and characters that go through such a delightful story, of faith, love, feelings of longing, and friendship. The music is a tremendous enchanting story book approach to the story that Disney is well known for. The old time funny comic that starts the Frozen Story, is such a good welcome for those movie goers who are young and old. The creativity in the scenes, is top notch of the Wintery Mix Weather. Go...Go...Now !!!

Even a good movie for boys by sdbart

Old School Disney by herrschnitzle
Excellent movie which hails back to the classic Disney films. Outstanding music and effects, the characters were fun and enjoyable. Really the only problem I had was that the story was a little weak.

Hilarious by Lydia.Gillis
Oh man, I laughed so hard I cried, this movie was just so well written. And I'm over 100% sure they will make this a stage play. It is made is such a way that it would be easily transferable to the stage. When that happens, I am sure it will be equally as great. Take your besties and their kids to see this movie. It's great. And like all Pixar/Disney films: expect to cry at least once.

Incredibly fantastic! by Melon_E
I have never been a huge fan of the classic Disney animated movies, but there is something for everyone is Disney's New Animation, Frozen. The concept of sisterly love, and friendship, instead of the usual true love's kiss is so nice and refreshing. The plot twist caught me totally off guard, and had me emotionally hooked until the end of the movie. The characters are truly relatable to Americans of 2014 (I could see myself as almost all the characters), and the evils in the movie prove true to real life: the characters aren't just the normal, flat, one dimensional, good or bad characters that are usually portrayed in these kind of movies. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone of any age group: at least see it once, and see what you think!

Fun for Family by WallKrawler
Little girls (5 and 9) loved it, and story had enough depth to be appealing to adults. I applaud Disney's recent move to happy endings with family and friendships, rather than marriages as the central theme. Music was a bit on the cheesy side in performance, but well-written.

Frozen by cathy1027
This movie isn't just for kids. I went with 2 other friends and we really enjoyed the movie. Yes, we're Senior Citizens but not too old to appreciate an animated film that was thoroughly funny, sweet and made you feel good when you left the theater.

FANTASTIC!!! by nighteowl
I have 2 boys, ages 15 and 10, and even THEY LOVED IT!! The music is great, the humor was for everyone, and it was loaded with adventure. The minute the movie ended, my 10 yr old said, "Mom, This is officially my favorite Disney movie." 'Nuff said. GET TO THIS MOVIE.
