Saw it this afternoon. Fairly good. Or at least it had catchy songs (if not as catchy to me as Frozen) and I teared up a few times, so it does the job of a good Disney musical-movie. I did wonder about the response of native Hawaiians or Polynesians to some of the cultural depiction. Checking Wikipedia... the main criticisms there are about the lack of a strong goddess, and Maui being an "overweight" buffoon. So "culture is okay, but the gods weren't." Also controversy about a costume.

Absolutely no romance, even less than in Brave.
