Capsule reviews of movies I watch with my toddler: Frozen

I do like the core "sisters before misters" message a lot. And "Let it Go" is the single best disney song ever sung (fight me!)

But past those two things, the story is seriously a mess. A handful of good scenes tied together with some of the jankiest narrative duct tape and filler.

I think it became Highest Grossing Animated Film Ever by serving an unmet demand for stories about sisters, rather than the quality of the story per se.

@nindokag I just watched this on a return flight. Agreed, I think it's appeal is that for so long we have needed a Disney movie that doesn't fail the Bechdel test.
