Funny: Frozen

Even by the standards of Disney, Frozen is one incredibly humorous film.

Disney film

    open/close all folders 

    Princess Anna 
  • Anna is.... pretty damn funny and cute when she's acting awkward.
    • In the middle of "The First Time In Forever", while she's singing about how excited she is for the gates to open: "Don't know if I'm elated or gassy, but I'm somewhere in that zone!"
    • In that same scene, she's dancing around with a bust, then loses her grip. It lands on top of a cake. The way the cake squashes, it looks like a gruff man wearing a dress.
    • Anna going back to the room of paintings and imitating the positions of all the women in them. While singing about her being "the picture of sophisticated grace", to boot. She even drapes herself up in a curtain at one point! And whacks herself in the face with a cord while doing so. Even better, it looks like she's trying to imitate Elsa by doing that.
    • Right after talking about sophisticated grace: "I wanna stuff some chocolate in my face!"
  • Anna saying "Cold-cold-cold..." when her dress gets frozen stiff, and her walking around with that frozen dress.
  • Anna trying to act dignified when she orders Kristoff to take her up the mountain right away. You can tell she's trying to channel Elsa and not doing a very good job at it.
  • "IT'S TRUE LOVE!"
  • The first meeting between Anna and Hans.
    Anna: This is awkward. I mean, not that you're awkward - we're-I'm awkward - you're gorgeous. Wait, what?
    • Also the Call Back to it at the end of the movie.
    Kristoff: Like it? I love it! (he picks her up and twirls her) I could kiss you! I could. I mean, I'd like to. I - may I? We me? I mean, may we? Wait, what?
    Anna: (kisses him on the cheek) We may.
  • The scene near the end when Anna is excitedly dragging Kristoff along blindfolded, but she runs him into a pole.
    Anna: Sorry!
  • When Hans and Anna are talking during the party, there's a point where Anna is gesturing, but she accidentally slaps Hans in the face.
  • For The First Time In Forever is mostly a big inspiring Disney "I Want" song... except for this bit.
    Anna (slightly muffled by the chocolate she's eating): "I wanna stuff some chocolate in my FACE!"
  • During "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" when young Anna is so bored that she says she started talking to the paintings.
    Anna: Hang in there, Joan.
    • The fact that they actually reference Joan of Arc, who was burned at the stake, in a film about coldness and snow is kinda funny in a darkly ironic way. Added irony/pun because she told a picture to hang in there.
    • And in another moment, when she sings about watching the hours tick by, she starts making tick tock noises with her mouth.
    • Doubles as Awesome because if both sisters grew up looking at and identifying with a picture of Joan of Arc, it's likely they would have seen her as a role model, and thus both picked up her virtues of courage and self-sacrifice.
  • When Anna is telling Kristoff about Elsa's reaction to her engagement, Kristoff is in disbelief that Anna got engaged to a guy she just met and they have this exchange:
    Kristoff: Didn't your parents ever warn you about strangers?
    Beat
    Anna: Yyyeeeeess, they did. *scoots away*
  • Anna attempting to climb the cliff without any climbing skills:
    Kristoff: I wouldn't put my foot there...or there.
    • She doesn't get far off the ground:
    Anna: Please tell me I'm almost there. *camera pans out to show that despite having been climbing for several minutes, she's barely four feet off the ground* Does the air seem a bit thin to you up here?
  • Early on, during the coronation day prep...Princess Anna, a picture perfect morning person.
    • After being woken up, she also dozes off again at least twice during a conversation with a courtier behind the door before she remembers that it's the day of the coronation.
      Servant [knocking]: Princess Anna?
      Anna [sitting up]: Huh? Yeah.
      Servant: Sorry to wake you.
      Anna: No no no no, you didn't wake me. [yawns] I've been up for hours! [dozes off, then startles awake] Who is it?
      Servant: ...Still me, ma'am. The gates will open soon. Time to get ready.
      Anna: Of course! ...Ready for what?
      Servant: Your sister's coronation, ma'am?
      Anna: My sister's... corner-ation...
    • Even better, just before this two foreign noblemen are talking about how beautiful they think the princesses are. *cut to a snoring Anna with fantastically bad bedhead, drooling, and with a lock of hair in her mouth*
  • At the end, when the villain expresses disbelief that Anna survived, citing her frozen heart, Anna coolly retorts that "The only frozen heart around here is yours!" and turns around with dignity... and then one second later turns back and punches him in the face so hard he tumbles off the ship they're currently standing on. Someone paused that scene at exactly the right time. Extra points for actually pulling him closer first, feisty pants.
  • "Last time I introduced (Elsa) to a guy, she froze everything." It's funny out of context because Anna is making Elsa come off as an overprotective sibling who doesn't want anyone dating their fellow siblings.
  • As a child, when she begs Elsa to play with her, she dramatically rolls around in mock angst.
    But the sky's awake, so I'm awake, so we hafta play.
  • When Elsa and Anna are being formally announced to all the bowing dignitaries, Anna walks in with a big smile and a little wave. And one of the ladies in the front waves back.
  • From the reprise of "For the First Time in Forever":
    Anna: Actually, we're not.
    Elsa: What do you mean, "you're not?"
    Anna: I get the feeling you don't know.
    Elsa: What do I not know?
    Anna: Arendelle's in deep, deep, deep, deep...snow.
    • Look closely and you'll notice Elsa rolls her eyes right before she says, "What do I not know?"
      • The whole exchange, although heartbreaking in some ways, actually comes across as quite amusing as every time Elsa starts telling her to leave, Anna starts up the happy duet again, seemingly not getting Elsa's sober mood. It comes across almost exactly like her badgering Elsa to play with her at the beginning of the movie.
  • "IT IS NOT NICE TO THROW PEOPLE!"
  • While it happens at a very crucial moment, there's something hilarious about Hans and the servants' collective reactions when they see that the first thing Anna does upon returning is cry out desperately for Hans to kiss her. Especially how one of the servants just smiles and says "We'll leave you two alone..."
  • After Anna, Kristoff and Sven escape from the wolves, Anna states she'll replace everything Kristoff lost and would understand if he would not accompany her to the North mountain anymore. While Kristoff is contemplating whether or not to continue helping Anna, Anna glances one time and slowly walks around while mumbling. She's delighted when Kristoff still wants to help her, but changes her tone to fake being aloof.
    Anna: (after Kristoff announces he's coming with her) You are!? I mean, sure! I'll let you tag along!

    Olaf 
  • Most moments with Olaf tend to end up as these.
    • "Whoa, headrush!"
    • "So cute, it's like a little baby unicorn." (Anna pushes his carrot through his head. He likes it even better that way though)
    • When Olaf starts to melt by the fireplace.
      "Some people are worth melting for. (holds drooping snow up) Just maybe not right this second."
    • (after accidentally walking his upper half into an icicle) "Oh, look at that. I've been impaled."
    • Olaf's song about wanting to experience the summers he always heard about is pretty much a send-up of a Bubsy-Berkley, Rankin-Bass TV special dance number, with cartoon-ish seagulls as back-up dancers. Cue Olaf in shades, in a hot tub, playing on the beach, dancing around sand people, and relaxing on a picnic! It's also hilarious because Olaf is completely unaware he'll melt in this weather, yet he's so happy and enthusiastic about how much fun he thinks he'll have! When he gets to the line "Winter's a good time to stay home and cuddle, but put me in summer and I'll be a—", he skirts around the mention of the word "puddle" when he approaches one, and instead jumps over it and belts out "HAPPEEEEEEEE SNOWMAN!"
      • "And I'll do whatever snow does... in SUMMEERRRRR!"
      • "My snow up against the burning sand!"
      • The sheer Black Comedy of not only having a snowman dancing around on a sunny day, but how literally everything Olaf does during that song is something which will only make him melt quicker.
      • Anna's and Kristoff's reactions during the song are priceless.
    Kristoff: I'm gonna tell him.
    Anna: Don't you dare!
    • And after the song is over...
      Kristoff: *With a horrified expression* Somebody's gotta tell him.
    • Anna and Kristoff are also equally confused at randomly showing up in the number sitting at a picnic lunch holding sandwiches. Sven however pays no mind and just eats.
    • The gang is sledding back into Arendelle and Kristoff tells Olaf not to expose himself to others. Olaf says he won't and slides behind a house, where this offscreen exchange happens.
      Olaf: Hello!
      Woman: IT'S ALIVE!!!
    • "I don't have a skull... Or bones." It's the delivery that makes it. Even better is the fact that Anna and Kristoff completely ignore this comment. At this point, it's pretty clear that they've gotten used to Olaf's strange non-sequiturs.
    • This line when Winter stops.
      Olaf: Hands down, this is the best day of my life... and quite possibly the last.
    • When he's cooing to Sven after the gang falls down a cliff, Kristoff separates them with an extremely creeped out look.
      Kristoff: Don't talk to him that way.
    • When he finally realizes that he's been calling Kristoff the wrong name all this time.
    • "Love is putting someone else's needs before yours! Like Kristoff bringing you all the way back to Hans and then leaving forever!"
    • "Never mind, Anna, he doesn't love you enough to leave you forever."
    • And he falls off the window. And, "There's your act of love right there! Riding across the fjords like a valiant, pungent reindeer king!"
    • "Why isn't she knocking? Do you think she doesn't know how to knock?"
  • Olaf's response to the question if he is alive. He just says "I think so" so cheerfully.
  • This line when they land:
    Olaf: I can't feel my legs! I CAN'T FEEL MY LEGS! (panicking while wiggling Kristoff's boots)
    Kristoff: Those are my legs. (bursts out of snow beneath Olaf)
  • When Kristoff sees Anna's hair turning white.
    Anna: Does it look bad?
    Kristoff: (beat) No.
    Olaf: You hesitated.
    Kristoff: No, I...I didn't.
    • Coupled with Olaf lifting up his head just to be in the frame when he says his line.
  • When Anna, Kristoff and Sven meet Olaf for the first time.
    Olaf: And who's the funky-looking donkey over there?
    Anna: That's Sven.
    Olaf: Uh-huh, and who's the reindeer?
    Anna: ...Sven...?
    Olaf: Oh, OK, makes things easier for me.
  • Olaf's reaction to Kristoff's "family" of trolls, who appear to be rocks. He thinks Kristoff is crazy and tells Anna to make a break for it, repeatedly, and gets more and more agitated when Anna is completely and utterly motionless.
    • Their faces during that scene.
    • When the trolls shout "Kristoff's home!" and Olaf responds "Kristoff's home! Wait, 'Kristoff'?"
  • "Let's go kiss Hans! Who is this Hans?" The second line is delivered somewhat dramatic and slow, as Olaf is vanishing into the distance, combines with the fact that he's staring at the camera to make you think he's asking the audience.
  • Kristoff's reaction when he and Anna first meet Olaf.
    Kristoff: (he's just caught Olaf's head, and replies in deadpan) You're creepy. *toss*
    Anna: I don't want him! *toss back*
    • Just the fact that the first thing Anna does upon seeing him is kick his head off.
  • "Hey guys? Not sure if this solves the problem, but through here there's a large ice staircase heading to exactly where you want to go."
  • The way Olaf pushes his nose up the same way someone might push up their glasses when he starts to melt and says "You really don't know what love is, do you?" Much like his under-reaction to being impaled, it's subtle yet humorous.
  • When Anna tells the guys they can't come into Elsa's castle with her, she specifically tells Olaf to give her a minute. Dejectedly, Olaf starts quietly counting. Made even funnier when Olaf sits down besides Kristoff, and Kristoff starts sadly counting with him from four.
  • When Olaf offered to distract Marshmallow, his torso and legs ran off without his head.
    *Thump* Olaf: This just got a whole lot harder.
    • And just before it, he hangs on to Marshmallow's massive leg to no effect and says frustratedly:
    Olaf: This is not making much of a difference, is it?
  • Olaf. Period.

    Kristoff and Sven 
  • Kristoff and Sven as children emulating the adult ice harvesters… with a single block of ice smaller than a cubic foot, the sort of sled children slide down hills on, and a much slower pace.
  • Kristoff telling Anna off for putting her legs on top of his sleigh's "dashboard" and using his spit to clean off her foot marks, and he got some of it on her face!
  • When Anna takes the jump before Kristoff finishes counting down and yanks him off the cliff with her, a perfect snow outline of him can be seen for a second before falling.
    Kristoff: ...that happened.
    • Before that scene you see Anna saying she is raring to go as Kristoff counts down.
      Anna: I was BORN ready!
      Kristoff: *completely deadpan* Calm down.
    • Then there's the fact that she seemed to take the tree that was launched at them as the cue to jump while yelling, "TREE!"...
  • His shock when Anna told him about her being engaged to Hans.
    Kristoff: Hang on! You mean to tell me you got engaged to someone you just met that DAY?!
    Anna: Yes. Pay attention.
  • When Kristoff asks Anna if she knows anything about Hans after getting engaged:
    Kristoff: What's his last name?
    Anna: *scoffs* Of-The-Southern-Isles!
    Kristoff: Favorite food?
    Anna: Sandwiches.
    Kristoff: Best friend's name?
    Anna: Probably John.
    Kristoff: Eye color?
    Anna: Dreamy.
    Kristoff: Foot size?
    Anna: Foot size doesn't matter!
  • Whenever Kristoff does his "Sven voice."
    • "But you won't get your new sled if she's dead!"
    • "Sometimes, I really don't like you..."
    • The best part is that every time they argue, Sven wins. Doubles as Heartwarming, because Sven represents Kristoff's conscience, which means that he's doing what he believes is right.
  • Kristoff seeing Elsa's ice palace.
    Kristoff: Now that's ice. I might cry.
    Anna: Go ahead. I won't judge.
    • And then he pouts when Anna makes him wait outside.
    Anna: You should probably wait outside...last time I introduced her to a guy, she froze everything...
    Kristoff: Oh, come on! It's a palace made of ice! Ice is my life!
    • Followed by him counting along with Olaf after he's told to wait as well.
    • The fact that they're both counting to 60 after Anna told them to give her a minute first.
      • They then barge into the palace almost exactly 60 seconds of film time later.
  • After Kristoff's sleigh is destroyed:
    Kristoff: (lip wobbling) But I just paid it off!
  • "Reindeers are Better Than People"- it's just Kristoff being his goofy self in private.
  • When Anna and Kristoff are running from Marshmallow, Sven can be seen with his tongue stuck to the ice staircase. And wagging his tail like a big dumb friendly happy dog.
  • When Elsa ends the eternal winter and the snow begins to rise, Sven tries to catch a rising snowflake with his tongue.
  • The way Sven looks and acts when Anna gives Kristoff his new sleigh.
  • Near the end, Sven is encouraging Kristoff to go back and tell Anna he loves her and Kristoff protests that Hans is Anna's true love. Sven just looks at him like "Really?"
  • Blink-and-you'll-miss-it, but when Olaf first shows up, Anna and Kristoff can't see him but they can hear him. They both look at Sven in confusion as if for a moment they think he's the one talking. Sven just grins at them happily with his antlers covered in jingly weeping willow vines. Their expressions of mutual confusion are priceless.
  • Kristoff examining Olaf's twig hand while the latter was talking to Anna, and it slapped him.

    ...and Everyone Else 
  • Pretty much the whole first encounter with Marshmallow:
    • "It is not nice to THROW PEOPLE!"
    • "Heads Up!" *beat* "Watch out for mah butt!"
    • "Let the snowman be!"
    • If you look closely when Elsa first creates Marshmallow, you'll see that Olaf has a big, happy smile on his face while Anna and Kristoff react with appropriate Oh Crap faces.
  • Evil as he is, Hans' intro was pretty funny, especially the part where he fell into the water when his horse waved at Anna.
    Hans: ...Oh, no...*splash*
  • "Presenting, the Duke Of Weaseltown." "WESTLETON!"
  • The Stinger. Marshmallow finds Elsa's discarded tiara and puts it on his head.
  • Fixer Upper. All of it.
    • The trolls' queries that all embarrass Kristoff beyond belief. Including asking if it's his smell or "unmanly blondness" that Anna dislikes until finally:
      Kristoff: ENOUGH! She is engaged to someone else, okay?!!!
    • The trolls don't care.
      Troll Kid: I don't see no ring!
      • Did that troll just reference Beyoncé?
    • Immediately before the shot at his blondness:
      Troll Kid: Or that he only likes to tinkle in the woods?
      Anna: I did not need to know that.
    • If you look closely, that particular kid seems to have an actual, literal troll face after saying that. Which adds an extra layer of comedy; the kid likely said that specifically to mess with Kristoff.
    • And then there's the fact that even the trolls consider Kristoff's relationship with Sven to be "outside of nature's laws." Heh.
    • Some even cheerily seem to suggest Kristoff Murder the Hypotenuse. "Get the fiance out of the way and the whole thing will be fixed!"
    • It's even more hilarious if you look into the brilliance of it; there are many of these sort of "you belong with each other" numbers in the Disney Princess canon, quite a few of them even preceding some pretty potent Mood Whiplash. This might be the first time the title characters involved are aware of this, and makes the whole number appear like some kind of Take That at the whole idea (like the film acknowledging this is a Big Lipped Alligator Moment); you can see the panic in Kristoff particularly as he is desperately trying to get the whole situation under control claiming, yes, he may have indeed brought a girl home, but she's engaged and more importantly she's dying (though nobody knew that at the time) and they really need to see Pabbie. Pretty blunt Black Comedy there laced throughout that jaunty number.
    • Just before the song, several trolls demonstrate their accomplishments:
    Young Troll 1: I grew a mushroom!
    Young Troll 2: I got my fire crystal!
    Gruff Troll: I passed a kidney stone.
    • Of course anyone who has had one can tell you that is something to brag about.
    • Yup, he got a rock.
  • The Duke's loose toupee. This makes even Elsa laugh.
  • Hans's horse being charmed by Anna.
  • This bit early on:
    Son: (annoyed at having to dress up) Why do I have to wear this?
    Mother: The queen has come of age! Today is her coronation ceremony!
    Son: That's not my fault!
  • The Duke's hilariously bad dancing. He struts like a peacock while his toupee flops up and down.
    The Duke: Like a chicken with the face of a monkey, I fly!
    • Elsa foisting Anna onto him when he asks to dance with her. And that smile, seems she's a worse Troll than the Trolls!
      Elsa: (snickers just a little) Sorry.
    • One of the Duke's dance moves is Lindsay Funke's "chicken dance". from Arrested Development.
    • The looks that Anna and Elsa exchange while Anna's dancing with the Duke. Especially Anna's, since she's got a cheeky little grin that pretty much says "I'll kill you for this later".
  • "Love is an Open Door" is practically a send up of love duets. Especially this part:
    Hans: I mean it's crazy
    Anna: What?
    Hans: We finish each other's...
    Anna: Sandwiches!
    Hans: That's what I was gonna say!
  • This bit from after Elsa runs away.
    Duke: She almost killed me!
    Hans: (deadpan) You slipped on ice.
    Duke: HER ice!
  • The entire Oaken scene.
    • "Wandering Oaken's Trading Post... ooh! And Sauna!"
    • His response to Kristoff calling him a crook.
    • Just hearing Oaken talking is funny with his accent. "YOO HOOOO. Big summer blowout."
    • Kristoff's response to Oaken justifying his prices as "supply and demand", plus Anna's awkward attempts to defuse the tension:
      Kristoff: You wanna talk about a supply and demand problem? I sell ice for a living! *Points out the window at the midsummer blizzard*
      Anna: Ooh, that's a rough business to be in right now... I mean, that is really... that's unfortunate.
  • It's brief, but one of the Duke's guards (the beardless one), appears to have an attraction to Elsa after he sees her magic.
  • It's a blink-and-you-miss-it moment, but the credits have someone being recognized for caffeination.
  • Hans saying some of his brothers pretended he was invisible when he was younger. That's kind of how older brothers are, but the fact that they did it for years... Though Word of God makes it inherently less funny when revealing that Hans' brothers' bullying was part of why he turned out to be such a sociopath in the first place.
  • In the credits, you'd most commonly expect a little section at the end stating that the story is completely fictional and that any resemblance to certain things in real life are entirely coincidental. In Frozen, you get this instead:
    "The views and opinions expressed by Kristoff in the film that all men eat their own boogers are solely his own and do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of The Walt Disney Company or the filmmakers. Neither The Walt Disney Company nor the filmmakers make any representation of the accuracy of any such views and opinions."
  • Doubles as a Tear Jerker due to the fact that it was just after Elsa refused her blessing. Her reaction to Hans asking to calm her is priceless.
    Hans: Your Majesty, if I may ease your-.
    Elsa: No, you may not and I think you should go.
  • Elsa saying "Wait. What?" during the "For the First Time in Forever" reprise.
