Every once in a while, Dani Colman's long post about why she doesn't like the reason other people like Frozen comes around. And I keep linking to a long post explaining why she's wrong.

That said, that long post is kinda flawed. For starters, it's really long--and as such, it can be almost as much a slog as the original post.

So I wrote my own.

I haven't read the post in question, but I take the fact that I can't walk two blocks on any street in town without hearing some little girl (or the occasional little boy) singing "Let It Go" or "Do You Want To Build A Snowman?" as proof that it's a hit with its intended audience.

Personally, I think it's a well done movie and I like that it takes some of the standard Disney tropes (finding the handsome prince and the talking animal sidekick, for instance) and turns them sideways. I also like that Anna is a strong female character who doesn't wait around for the stud to save her. When she gets help from Kristoff it's help, not "Oh come save poor weak me."
