Yet to See “Frozen”? Here’s Five Reasons Why You Should

Frozen Ribbon

If you’re the sole person on the planet who has yet to see the cinematic masterpiece that is “Frozen,” take whatever it is that’s holding you back and “let it go.” (You know we had to go there.) Since you’re going to be bombarded at every turn with music from the movie and merchandise emblazoned with images of Elsa and Anna anyway (did you know, they even sell Frozen character ribbon?), you may as well find out who’s who – and who knows? You may even end up understanding what the fuss is all about. Here are the top five reasons you need to see Frozen.

It Offers a Refreshing Message

Let’s be honest – not all popular animated movies have feminist viewpoints. Some, in fact, go so far as to feature “heroines” that will do just about anything and abandon just about everyone in order to attract the attention of the one they love. This isn’t that kind of story, and while it does have a love story component to some degree, it isn’t the primary focus of the film.

The Music is Legitimately Catchy

While “Let it Go” may be the movie’s signature song, there are actually a number of catchy tunes from the likes of Broadway phenomenon Idinia Menzel and comic actress Kristen Bell (who can really sing, by the way…who knew?)

It’s a Kid Movie That Adults Genuinely Enjoy

There’s a reason Frozen is one of the most successful motion pictures of all time, animated or otherwise, and it’s not exclusively due to kids in the audience. Let’s face it, not every movie the kids want to see is an Oscar winner. Some are even downright painful. Let Frozen numb the pain.

The Jerky Guy Gets His Comeuppance

Not too much more can be said about this without revealing major plot points, but it’s nice to see the nice guy finish first, for once. Frozen features a number of interesting male characters in addition to its female leads, and it’s not always obvious which one is Prince Charming.

You’ll Finally Get What Everyone Else is Talking (and Singing About)

Why does everyone want to know if you want to build a snowman? When does Elsa don the glittery princess getup? Answer these burning questions and more with your next movie viewing.

You Know You Want To – Just Do It

Have you been convinced? Are you on your way to borrow a copy from the four-year-old next door? Grab some hot chocolate, settle down on the couch and go ahead, turn it on. It’s like a “warm hug” for you entire body. And if you didn’t get that reference, you will after you watch the movie.

    A few of my friends, still haven’t seen Frozen! I love this movie, I could watch it all day.

  4. mai tran says:

    I watched the movie and thought it was overrated. The music was catchy, the plot was quite normally disney-like. I like the drawing, very pretty.

  5. HilLesha says:

    Frozen is one of my all-time favorites! My daughter recently got to see it for the first time.

  6. lola says:

    This made me chuckle. And realize that Frozen is the last movie I saw in the theater. #mommyproblems

  8. Colleen says:

    I actually finally rented this and watched it over the Christmas break with my daughter. She had already seen it. It was a greay Disney movie.

  9. md kennedy says:

    Haven’t yet seen it – kind of a “revolt” against hearing that song all the time. However, I will give it a shot when it comes out on PPV.

  10. Tammy says:

    I have to admit, it wasn’t one of my favorites. I did like the message of love between the sisters, but I prefer a lot of the other Disney animated movies over this one.

  11. Liz Mays says:

    You’re right. I really do need to watch it. I’ve missed a lot of the family-friendly ones lately.

  12. Haha! I loved this movie and can watch it over and over.

  13. Crystal says:

    The music is so, so catchy. I think we are at a point where the kids need a break from it, but they keep coming back. The songs will be classics forever.

  14. Christine A says:

    I haven’t watched the movie but I’ve definitely heard the “Let It Go” song. I’m tempted to watch just so I can finally identify the characters on all the Frozen-themed products I’ve been seeing.

  15. Andrea Kruse says:

    Yes, yes, yes! All these reasons and more. Can I add that I love the awkward outcast finds love? Who doesn’t love Christof? I am a big fan of the music and the fact it is finally a story of a girl who doesn’t just try to find Prince Charming (that and Brave) makes me love them for my daughter.

  16. Penelope says:

    I loved the non-love story aspect and how funny the heroine is…usually the male lead is shown “coming of age” so I love seeing it from a girl’s perspective.

  17. Are there people who haven’t seen it yet!??

  18. Marketta Meyer says:

    I may just have to go see it.

  19. Bellesouth says:

    Most important reason to see Frozen? It was literally a movie that was 70 years in the making. Disney started working on an animated version of The Snow Princess in the 1940s. The studio kept going back and forth, producing lots of concept drawings over the decades, and it was thrown around among studio execs, screenwriters and animators. It is an historically significant film in history because of all It had to go through. Do a search on Frozen Development Hell and you will get all the details.
