When Lisa Simpson tripped out at Duff Gardens and declared, “I can see the colours!” we suspect that she was hallucinating Trolls. The gaudily-hued little folk with backcombed hair that makes Robert Smith look comparatively hairless have existed for some 60 years, entertaining kids and often horrifying parents. There’s no need for the latter to freak out about Trolls the movie, however, as it’s a hearty – and very colourful, naturally – slice of relentlessly happy musical kiddie fun (with a few morsels for patient grown ups). The little guys even maintain good humour when a grumpy old Bergen kidnaps their friends, embarking upon a rescue mission that’s both bold and, of course, colourful. Featuring original songs from Justin Timberlake, plus everybody from Simon & Garfunkel to The Notorious BIG getting covered, this could be the cheeriest movie ever. C’mon get happy – and colourful.
