Mayim Bialik Admits She Hates ‘Frozen’by Michelle McGahan | PopCrush
The ‘Blossom’ and ‘Big Bang Theory’ actress (who also has a Ph.D. in neuroscience) writes candidly about why she and her young sons dislike the film in a lengthy blog post.
Bialik is not only well aware that she may lose fans over her opinion, she also regularly refers to herself as ‘Scrooge’ and even acknowledges that she is probably taking things too seriously. That being said, the actress and mom-of-two forges ahead with her explanation with no apologies.
“Sure, it’s sort of hidden, but the search for a man/love/Prince is still the reigning plot line in the movie, as it is with pretty much all movies for young people which are animated,” she writes. “The sister’s desire to marry this guy she just met, and the other sister getting mad at her — we still have a plot about the identification of a woman being based on her desire and search to meet a man.”
“The Prince/hero turns out to be a scheming villain,” she continues. “He pretended to love her and then he double crosses her and she gets the lesson taught to her not to trust those nasty scheming conniving men. Because you know, men can’t be trusted? Meh.”
But her biggest beef with the film? The way that Elsa and Anna were drawn.
“OK, my biggest problem with this movie was the way the female characters are drawn and animated,” she says. “…They have ginormous eyes. Like really ridiculously big. Teeny-tiny ski slope noses. Exaggerated delicate ski sloppiness, actually. Barbie doll proportions of their bodies in general: tiny waists, ample busts, and huge heads. They look like dolls. They don’t look like the same species as the male characters even! What’s up with that?!”
