True, the adults' childhood toys are being riffed on, but beyond the grotesque renderings of the '70s rec-room look – all carpets and felt and yellows – "Trolls" is not nostalgic.That fits with the Trolls' hyper-positive mantra.There's even a Troll in full body sparkles who sings only in auto-tune – an example of how jokes can wander from amusing to annoying.The Trolls have some distant neighbors called Bergens – grotesque-looking, chronically depressed monsters who long ago decided the only way to be happy is to eat Trolls, like they were Prozac.That all ended some 20 years ago when the Troll King Peppy (Jeffrey Tambor) staged a massive escape mission, saving his subjects from death by Bergen.Anyway, Poppy and the grumpy Branch (Justin Timberlake) take it on themselves to save the captured Trolls."Trolls" is screening in Beirut-area theaters.
