One of the biggest missteps the movie makes is that it never puts you on the trolls’ side. They seem to live a fairly hedonistic, cultish lifestyle that crushes individuality or empathy in favor of holding one never-ending rave. Poppy reaches out to Branch, but most of the other trolls ignore him and never ask him why he has such a negative outlook on life. Additionally, the trolls only help out the Bergen, not because it’s nice to help out people who are sad, but as a matter of their own survival. They’re selfish, shitty, annoying little creatures and I was kind of rooting for the Bergen, who would at least rid the world of these talking ecstasy pills.
Perhaps other viewers won’t pick up on that message. Maybe they’ll just see the stunning animation (DreamWorks Animation upped their game when it comes to showing felt and fabric) and some familiar tunes sung in a cheery voice by charming voice actors. The kids will laugh at the troll who farts glitter, they’ll want to download Timberlake’s “CAN’T STOP THE FEELING!”, and they’ll dispose of this movie like they’ve disposed of DreamWorks Animation’s Mr. Peabody & Sherman , Turbo , Home , and so forth. The best thing that could happen for Trolls would be to forget it completely. That would make me happy.
And that’s a terrible message to have in your family film. Differences are a good thing. We should believe in different things, and while I’m not railing against singing, dancing, and hugging (these are all good things), the way they’re used in Trolls to show not ways to happiness but indeed an entire lifestyle is disconcerting. The trolls are shallow, stupid creatures and they feel threatened by people who aren’t like them. The Bergen are misguided, and while I’m glad that the movie decides the two peoples can co-exist, their co-existence is predicated on the Bergen living like the trolls.
Twenty years ago, the trolls lived happily in a tree, and they spent their days singing, dancing, and hugging. They took no notice of their unhappy neighbors, the Bergen, creatures who can’t sing or dance or hug, but discover that the only way they can be happy is by eating trolls. The trolls flee to a new home, the Bergen are left miserable, and the trolls go back to happily singing, dancing, and hugging until the Bergen’s exiled chef ( Christine Baranski ) finds their new lair and kidnaps some of the trolls. Troll princess Poppy ( Anna Kendrick ) takes it upon herself to rescue her friends and brings along the sarcastic, survivalist Branch ( Justin Timberlake ) to help her navigate the wilderness. When they reach the Bergen’s kingdom, they discover that the secret to not only rescuing the trolls, but also forging a new peace may lie in bringing happiness to the Bergen Prince Gristle ( Christopher Mintz-Plasse ) and his secret admirer, Bridget ( Deschanel ).

I know trying to bring a cultural critique into a movie where a character farts glitter may be too much, but it’s the only thing that was able to hold my attention in this trash pile of a soundtrack advertisement. Caught between total boredom and morbid curiosity, I’ll take morbid curiosity. And I do find it fascinating that (spoiler alert for people who don’t want to know how Trolls ends) the solution to the problem isn’t that the Bergen realize they have a unique culture and that they don’t need to eat trolls to be happy. The film’s solution is to end in a dance number, meaning that the trolls, avatars of unconsidered happiness, teach the Bergen that the key to happiness is to be like the trolls: sing, dance, and hug.
