Josh Gad is continually Frozen in place by his daughters’ smarts!

“When I took [oldest daughter Ava Tanya, now 5] to see Monsters University, it was her first movie in the theater,” funnyman Gad told PEOPLE at the world premiere of The Angry Birds Movie on Saturday in Los Angeles. “Then when she saw the preview for Frozen, I didn’t say a word. [My character Olaf] laughed. She heard my laugh. She looks at me, at 2, and goes, ‘Dada? More Dada?'”

“And I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ ” he adds. “At 2, I would have been like, ‘I want popcorn.’ I would have been an idiot.”

Josh Gad is letting go of the Frozen lingo and becoming rather well-spoken in daughter Ava‘s new-found language.

“[My] 4-year-old hit this amazing milestone where she now fluently talks back to me,” the actor, 33, joked to PEOPLE at the Los Angeles premiere of Wedding Ringer on Tuesday night.

“It’s like the second she hit 4 … she discovered that that’s a thing,” Gad continues. “So, it’s just the constant talk back. It’s just a constant attitude thing where I’m like, ‘Wow, she’s lecturing me.’ ”

Luckily for Gad and his wife, Ida Darvish, they have their 11-month-old daughter, Isabella Eve, to take them back to one of the sweetest stages of growing up.

“My youngest daughter just started walking two days ago, where she’s taking a couple of steps,” says Gad.
