A woman from Japan has decided to Let it Go. Recently, Digital Spy reported that a Japanese woman has asked her husband for a divorce for not liking the popular animated film Frozen.
The 29-year-old woman decided to end the six-year-marriage after she realized that her husband is no fan nor will ever be a fan of her obsession, Disney’s Frozen, which starred Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel. The Frozen dilemma began when the woman forced her husband to watch the film. After seeing the movie, the husband gave a less-than-stellar review, which greatly irked his wife.
According to Japanese website Kikonsha no Hakaba (which translates to ‘The Gravesite of Married People’), this was the husband’s review for the movie:
“It’s an okay movie, I guess, but I didn’t really care for it personally.”
It’s not exactly the harshest of reviews, but somehow, the husband’s lack of excitement for Frozen did it for the woman, who reacted negatively over the husband’s unenthusiastic reception of the film. This is what the woman allegedly said:
“If you can’t understand what makes this movie great, there’s something wrong with you as a human being! I want a divorce!”
According to reports, the woman left her husband’s house and is currently living with her parents, who are reportedly acting as mediators between the two parties.
Before the Frozen-related rift occurred, the woman allegedly obsessed over the film, watching it dozens of time until she was able to convince her husband to go along and see the movie.
Because the husband has a degree in Danish literature, there were some expectations that he would at least show slight appreciation for the movie, especially that Frozen was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s story, The Snow Queen. However, the opposite was observed.
Due to what some netizens describe as “irreconcilable differences,” it seems like the woman and her soon-to-be-ex husband won’t be building a snowman very soon.
Rotten Tomatoes ranks Frozen at 89 percent, fairly high compared to other animated films that were released the same year. Although Frozen received outpouring praises from movie critics across the US, some were very icy with their reviews for the movie. Adam Nayman of Globe and Mail wrote:
“It’s hard to generate a sense of warmth when the plot points all feel so coldly calculated, and it doesn’t help that the musical numbers are so pedestrian.”
