Despite the success of Disney’s 2013 full-length feature Frozen, the not-so-short film Olaf's Frozen Adventure, which was played before Pixar’s ‘Coco’, received serious complaints from moviegoers around the world for its long length (despite it being a short film), subpar quality, and for its nonstop 20 minute long Christmas theme-musical number that most viewers hated.
In Mexico, complaints were so numerous that the two largest movie theatre chains in the country decided to stop showing the Frozen short film that was supposed to be played before Coco.
Tonight a friend could not stop talking about how much he hated it. He wants me to see it so I can hate it too.— Eric D. Snider (@EricDSnider) November 25, 2017
Didn’t hate it, but was supremely annoyed. My Mom and I looked at each other with a “Really?” expression several times. Halfway through she even asked, “How long does this last?” We just wanted to see COCO.— Ethan Anderton (@Ethan_Anderton) November 25, 2017
Unspeakably dreadful. The songs were sludge; the plot, idiotic. It made me loathe commercialized Christmas, a holiday I enjoyed as a child, with a dark and molten rage.— Clive Thompson (@pomeranian99) November 25, 2017

The FROZEN short before COCO unforgivably stretches the definition of "short."— AADowd (@AADowd) November 25, 2017
Someone in our audience involuntarily exclaiming "oh my GODDDDD" when Elsa started to sing again was the hardest I've laughed at the theater in 2017 https://t.co/pBVngdwnfg— Ross Kroeber (@RossKroeber) November 24, 2017
At present, you can’t see Olaf’s Frozen Adventure (legally, anyhow) without paying to see Coco. So if you want to see what the buzz is all about, you have to go out and see ‘Coco’ and get treated with the Frozen short film before the movie starts.
