Disney’s sickeningly awful “Frozen II” is a complete disaster–horribly cliched, sappy, insipid, uninspired, corny, tacky, horribly acted, terribly directed, full if irritating characters, unoriginal, unfunny, and full of un-melodic, un-inspiring, deadly horrific songs.

Parents: Please, for the sake of your children, do NOT take them to see “Frozen II.”

“Frozen II” is yet again another tired example of sequelitis–the maddeningly infectious disease afflicting Hollywood. Crazed, inept and greedy Disney suits are among those in the movie and television business who are affected at the highest level–this unoriginal studio cannot for the life of it find enough original, quality films to produce and release, so the studio sadly relies–again and again–on films afflicted with sequelitis.

“Frozen II” is one of them–on every filmic level, it’s just simply a bad movie. Not an okay or average movie–a bad movie.

There was no need for Disney to remake “The Lion King.” There was no need for Disney to remake “The Jungle Book.” There was no need for the diarrhea of subpar and unoriginal “Star Wars” movies. And there was no need for a long line of other unoriginal, tired sequels, remakes, reboots and whatevers.

And there is no need, alas, for “Frozen II.” None.

Do yourself a favor in the coming weeks, and stay far, far away from any theater showing this piece of cold corporate movie business greed.
