TROLLS

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - TB

★★★ Di­rected by Mike Mitchell, Walt Dohrn. Voices of Anna Ken­drick, Justin Tim­ber­lake, Zooey Deschanel, Rus­sell Brand, James Cor­den, Gwen Ste­fani Trolls starts as it means to go on: with a big pink, sticky splat of bub­blegum, as the col­lec­tive voice cast – led by Ken­drick at her sun­ni­est – cover Ju­nior Se­nior’s Move Your Feet. There is a case to be made against Trolls, a mu­si­cal-com­edy that man­ages to turn The

Sound of Si­lence into a perky sin­ga­long an­them, and that pri­mar­ily ex­ists to shift weirdly hir­sute dolls. But it’s car­ried off with enough charm that only a real heel would ob­ject. G cert, gen re­lease, 92 min
