My MIL took us all to see this, in 3D even, and everyone loved it, even the boys! Colton says, "I can't stop thinking about it!" Lots of singing, but what else would you expect from a Disney film? I think the ending went a little differently from what one might expect. Definitely a good one for 3D, something about which I am typically skeptical. Also, if you've seen the trailers, this is a case where the trailer sets up false expectations. The snowman does show up for some comic relief, but is not as prominent in the film as the trailer would have you believe.

I've heard it pretty decent but that the short before it is excellent. I would like to see it but not for the price of a cinema ticket.
The sight filled the northern sky; the imensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer. ~ Northern Lights
The music is awesome. I liked what they did with the story, even though it was predictable as I don't know what. I really like the song Elsa sings when she's "free". I must say that the merchandise I've seen is horrid though. Especially the dolls. It looks so low quality. I don't know where Disney had it made, but I really think they should've invested in the quality more.

I saw it on DVD and also really liked it. I had been apprehensive about the reindeer and talking snowman as well, but glad they didn't focus on it too much. They should have put just the sisters on the movie poster and i might have seen it in the cinema.
I think it is a film I would have loved to see with my daughter when she was a child. Alas, she is grown-up now and I cannot bring my self to go to the cinema on my own to see an animated film.
I read that it is "inspired" by H.C. Andersen's story "The Snow Queen". Just like "The Little Mermaid" was "inspired" by H.C. Andersen's story with the same title (with a total different happy ending).
We are famous for "Stockholm syndrome": "Q: Hey, what's up with Matt? His Dad is on social security, his mom got laid off, his sister's kids get free school lunches, he collects federal financial aid for college, and he only makes minimum wage working at Walmarts. Yet he keeps talking about how we need to cut taxes for the wealthy and quit spending so much on social programs. A: Yeah, he thinks he's going to be a millionaire soon. He's got Economic Stockholm Syndrome." (Urban Dictionary)
