Address Comments To:
Amid some rather feeble and incidental positive messages in A TROLL IN CENTRAL PARK are some more overt and dangerous sermons. Although it is right to fight for what we believe, to foster creative imaginations in children of all ages and to take care of the planet over which we have been given stewardship, Stanley's "power within" message is more than suspicious: it is antithetical to God's word. This movie even includes a beginning primer for visualization: relax and think of something fun. Aside from thematic problems and a heavy dose of environmentalism, Mr. Bluth has delivered a substandard product with simple music and very little thought to the storyline.
