Trolls ( 2016) ( PG) En­ter the colour­ful world of trolls — mag­i­cal crea­tures that are happy all the time. Un­for­tu­nately, th­ese crea­tures have to stay hid­den from the com­i­cal Ber­gens who can only feel hap­pi­ness when they devour a troll. When Princess Poppy ( voiced by Ken­drick), an overly op­ti­mistic troll, de­cides to throw a large party, she has no idea how much at­ten­tion it will gar­ner... and it isn’t long be­fore the Ber­gens come along and kid­nap some trolls. Now, it's up to Poppy to save them, but the only one who is will­ing to ac­com­pany her is a sulk­ing, para­noid troll named Branch ( voiced by Tim­ber­lake).

While work­ing as a free­lance ac­coun­tant, he gets a new client — a state- of- the- art ro­bot­ics com­pany which has a dis­crep­ancy to the tune of mil­lions of dol­lars. Mean­while, the Trea­sury De­part­ment's Crime En­force­ment Divi­sion is start­ing to close in on him due to some of Wolff’s not- so- le­git­i­mate clients.

Sim­mons Rat­ing:

A book that shaped your out­look? Four Agree­ments by Don Miguel Ruiz. I made a con­scious ef­fort to abide by its easy- to- ap­ply life prin­ci­ples and have seen mas­sive shifts in my per­sonal growth since then.

Which book would you pass on to your kids to trea­sure? Oh, The Places You’ll Go by Dr Seuss. It is about per­se­ver­ance, suc­cess and in­fi­nite pos­si­bil­i­ties — one of the most in­spir­ing books I’ve ever read!
