A British mother really is struggling to “Let It Go” after she revealed that she has watched Frozen over 500 times.
Leigh Dryden, who hails from Middlesborough, England, has three sons, four-year-old Owen, two-year-old Corey, and one-year-old Jay. Leigh has now laid to claim to being the biggest Frozen fan in the world because of the remarkable amount of times that she has watched the film.
Leigh, who previously worked as a nursery nurse, has admitted that she and her brood have sat down and watched the antics of Princesses Elsa and Anna around five times a day ever since they bought the film back in September.
ITV have reported that Leigh was originally slightly opposed to letting her boys watch Frozen because she was under the impression that it was a “girls film.” However, she soon discovered that they loved it for a variety of reasons.
“They tell me they love it because of the snow monster and the reindeer Sven… They really enjoy the singing and the music and they enjoy it when things go wrong. Owen loves it when they get chased by wolves.”
Meanwhile, Ms. Dryden has insisted that she doesn’t simply place her three boys in front of the television and then make them watch Frozen repeatedly. She revealed that they will do a variety of other tasks while the film is playing in the background.
This includes playing with their toys and coloring in, while they will also go for days out together. I imagine these excursions often end with one of the trio asking the other, “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?”
However, when they are inside they always make sure to have the film on. This way they can go around listening to the likes of “Let It Go” and “Love Is An Open Door” on an hourly basis.
And despite the fact that thousands of parents from across the world have grown weary of Frozen because of the film’s monumental success, and their children’s insistence on repeatedly watching it, Leigh Dryden has declared that she hasn’t got frustrated with the film just yet.
“I have never got tired of it yet, I just think it is fun for them and there’s worse films. It does prove women can stand up for themselves.”
While speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, Frozen’s co-director, Jennifer Lee, actually apologized for the impact of the film’s soundtrack towards the end of last year.
“A year ago, I’d meet people who, when they found out who I was, they’d say, ‘Oh, we love the songs! We sing them all the time.’ Now they’re like, ‘Yep, we’re still listening to those songs. I’ve gone from, ‘Thank you,’ to, ‘Sorry!'”
