Bullseyes: ④ (out of 5)
Kids are not the most discerning of audiences are they? Sprinkle a little cartoon sugar over the screen and they’ll watch anything. Add a dollop of cute lead, a flimsy premise and a couple of catch phrases and the kids will lap it up.
I remember taking my kiddies to see Rise of the Guardians, a dark and dreary movie. They loved it! Ditto Brave (‘it was awesome’) and The Cat in The Hat (‘best movie ever!’). Kid’s movies… critic-proof!
Fortunately Frozen is a good movie. I can’t remember the plot – something about an Ice Queen, ice powers and a quest to, er, do something. But it doesn’t matter because Olaf the snowman is cute, the music is pleasant and, of course, everything works out in the end (spoiler alert! Oops).
