Sitting on a porch in Virginia, Mildred “String Bean” Jeter tells her boyfriend, Richard “Rich” Loving, she is pregnant. Absolutely elated by the news, Richard decides to marry Mildred, buy an acre of land, and build a house for them. Knowing it was illegal for them to get married in Virginia, they went to Washington, DC and came back to Virginia. They hung their marriage license over their bed. One night, based on an anonymous tip, the Sheriff came to their home hoping to catch them having sex, they found them sleeping. They were both put in jail. Rich stayed overnight and given bail, but Mildred was kept for days until the judge could hear her case. Also, Rich was not allowed to bail her out. Rich obtained a lawyer who told them to plead guilty, so they could avoid prison. With the plea, they got a 1 year suspended sentence and could not return to VA together for 25 years. They moved to DC, but it as a far cry from the country life they knew. Once Mildred was ready to give birth, she decided she wanted Rich’s mom to be the midwife. So in the dark of night, they traveled back to VA. After they baby, Sidney, was born, the Sheriff showed up on their doorstep to arrest them. With legal interference they were able to avoid jail, but told to leave VA again. Richard can see that Mildred is deeply sadden by city life and misses her family. But when an accident strikes, moving back to VA is the only option. Their choice will affect the entire United States.

This wonderful story is told with the quiet of the country in contrast to the busyness of the city. The Lovings didn’t set out to be a trial blazing couple, they just wanted to raise their children in VA without going to prison. Even though they had to fight the state, their friends and family were on their side. The world was not out to stop them, most were for their marriage. The two actors easily displayed the soft spoken nature of Mildred and Richard. They just loved each other and lived up to their surname. Remember, you may lose the small battles but you can win the big war. This true romance story is a great date movie. See it today and bring a tissue.

Annually, in Bergentown, the Bergens get together to eat trolls. The Bergens believe that eating trolls is the only way they can ever be truly happy. Then on the day young Prince Gristle will get his first taste of troll, the trolls escape. King Peppy saves his daughter, Princess Poppy, and all the other trolls; and they live in peace for 20 years. Then Princess Poppy decides to throw an annual bash to celebrate their freedom, but Branch (party pooper troll) warns them that all the dancing and singing will lead to the Bergens finding them. During the party, Branch’s warning comes true. A handful of trolls are kidnapped by the Bergen Chef while other trolls hide. With a “burn returned” threat, Branch decides to help Princess Poppy get the kidnapped trolls before they can be eaten by the Bergens. They will make unbelievable allies and wild enemies on a true hair raising adventure.

This movie will be loved by parents and kids alike. This is a fun story with an even more impressive sound track (Trolls Soundtrack) (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). It has all the twist and turn of a live action movie with a message only an animated film can deliver. You will dance in your seat, laugh out loud, and question yourself about your own happiness. And keep your eyes open for Cinderella and E.T. shoutouts in this movie (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). This is worth 3D but be prepared to feel like you are covered in glitter. Stay past the 1st end crawl for a satisfying ending, but no need to stay past the 2nd end crawl.  DreamWorks has put together another beautifully crafted movie

I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

When I say no troll left behind, I mean no troll left behind – King Peppy

I’m positive all of you are going to get eaten – Branch

Solid burn returned – Princess Poppy
