Hello there. I once tried a debate "Frozen is Better than Aladdin", but recieved overwhelming criticism on how "Frozen was terrible". (so I changed the debate, but that's not the important part) Well, I'd like to argue Frozen isn't a bad movie.
You have to argue the movie is bad. You may not compare Frozen to Disney's Renaissance Movies. (That sets up too high of a standard. Frozen may be good, but it's not "Disney Renaissance good"!) Good luck to you con.

Round one is for acceptance only.
You may not forfeit any round.
Breakage of any rules results in a full 7-point forfeit.

Okay, so first of all, Disney is the highest grossing Disney film, and even more than that, it's the highest grossing animated film of all time. If a movie is financially successful, it can't be too bad. http://boxofficemojo.com...
Furthermore, it has decent reviews, with a pretty high 89% fresh on RottenTomatoes, and it has an average score of 7.8/10, making it the highest-rated family film in 2013! Even if you argue that Frozen is far from being the best movie ever, it is the best family film in 2013, based on its rating, and because such, it can't be too bad of a movie. (2013 wasn't really the Year of Bad Movies.) CinemaScore gave Frozen an "A+" on an A+ to F scale, and even Metacritic gave a 74 out of 100. This can't be said a bad movie, as a score of 74 on a test if average. However, it seems that only Metacritic heavily disagrees that Frozen is an amazing movie, so we can safely assume that Frozen is somewhere between, in the "Decent" range, which is the opposite of bad.
Frozen won a load of awards, especially for its catchy song Let it Go. The film was nominated for two Golden Globes at the 71st Golden Globe Awards and won for Best Animated Feature, becoming the first Walt Disney Animation Studios film to win in this category. It also won two Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song, the BAFTA Award for Best Animated Film at the British Academy Film Awards, five Annie Awards (including Best Animated Feature), It received other similar nominations at the Satellite Awards, and various critics' groups and circles.

All these awards are very positive, clearly showing that Frozen isn't a bad movie. In fact, it's very good. You should watch it with your kids! (or parents if you don't have kids)

Aw man. Well, con losses all 7 points. I hope to do this again, except with a stronger title to attract more people...
"Frozen is a Good Movie". (FYI: It's number 3 in my top ten movie list, right in front of Inception--4th place, behind Aladdin--2cd place, and The Lego Movie--1st place)

I believe it is mediocre. Definitely not good but I wouldn't say it's bad. I feel it gets too much hype but some of it is deserved.
