It is a pretty song... Can't blame her for listening. I think she likes the song. :)

Couldn't have timed it better in terms of the weather this year. Frozen was awesome and now there is a sing a long version. If my daughter goes, it will be her fourth time seeing it still in theaters... it would be my third. :) ... The cold never bothered me anyway! (Fave line)

@Patience, you are right! It is a pretty song. :) @Cheryl, it's been a perfect winter for this movie. We have seen it twice! At least it's a good one!

My daughter will be 16 in 2 weeks and loves it! Wants a copy for her birthday!

I am a big fan of animated movies. However, I will not be going to see Frozen. Why? Simply because the ads and previews focused on the snowman. When they focus on what is basically a sidekick, I don't believe it's as good as its popularity makes it seem.

John, if that's what is preventing you from seeing the movie, let me assure you that the storyline does NOT focus on the sidekick. He's there, but nearly every Disney flick has one. He's innocuous and only serves to point up the fact that the female characters in this movie are strong, resourceful and very much the leads. I took my two grand daughters to see it, along with my 4 year old grandson, and I was grateful for the moral lessons it taught---and the fact that, as sisters they often bicker but when push comes to shove, they are stronger together than separate when facing adversity. Go. You won't regret it. And I'm not a Disneyphile by any stretch of the imagination.

Disney is a master at putting girls in princess or queen positions, either to be rescued by a man or with a male sidekick to help them out of the sticky spots. JUST ONCE, I would like to see a Disney cartoon put out that showcases young girls mastering math, hard science, or computer science, winning a full scholarship to Yale or Harvard instead of all the simpering, "empowered" (I'm laughing here) girls with flowing locks, medieval garb, and unrealistic scenarios. What, Disney, you don't think girls would be interested? Just back a movie like that up with all the pre-release hype, merchandise in toy stores, and music videos you've managed to do for all the others, and see.

I love this movie and the music is fabulous! However my favorite cover (so far) that I have come across on YouTube is one by the group, Pentatonix. They are very theatrical and really get into the roles. Here it is! http://youtu.be/eLPRdYE4olE

Karen, the sisters in Frozen may be princesses, and one gets some help from a man (and a snowman!) but I think you will be pleasantly surprised by this movie. I took my daughter to see it on opening day in Downtown Disney, we haven't seen it again (and probably won't go to the sing-a-long version), but she is eagerly waiting for the DVD release. There is a twist at the end that most people won't see coming, esp. if they're used to the typical "knight in shining armor" ending. For a minute I thought they were going to ruin the ending by doing the typical fairytale thing, but I loved it! Disney has been moving more in the right direction, with Belle being studious and strong and brave (she doesn't get rescued, she rescues her father), and Tiana being hardworking and persistent, Frozen takes it a step further with less reliance on a male romantic/heroic lead (I don't want to give it away). Let's face it, the fantasy and the clothes are what attract the little girls. Once they get past the "playing dress-up" stage, they'll be more receptive to the kind of movie you envision. I do hope Disney makes something like that to replace the High School Musical sorts of things they've done in the past. Have you seen Akela and the Bee?

This movie was awesome! Had some very pleasant and unexpected surprises. The songs are awesome and the movie is very empowering for young girls. I loved the moral of this story, which opens your eyes to the real definition of true love.

HOW about a story about something like this? Them democrats sure are LOYAL to Mr. Obama! Seems they say SCREW the citizens of MA! High time for MASSACHUSETTS to fall back to Mitt Romney Care! The state legislature is so DISSLOYAL to those they are elcted to represent and LOYAL to "The One" that this democratic controlled legislature has abdicated their FIDICUARY responsibility to the MA voters, both DNC & GOP! If in doubt how about a series of state wide meetings to discuss the pros & cons of OPTING OUT of AHCA / OBAMA CARE!? I for one can't understand why one would NOT cleave to a plan that covers 97% of citizens without any compromise of MEDICAL or FINANCIAL documents and more then slight potential ID theft under ObamaCare!
