Fascinating, often entertaining and personal
4 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I do know people who either love or hate Barbie. I grew up with the dolls(with other stuff like Ninja Turtles and My Little Pony), and I still enjoy most of the movies(except three or four of the newer ones), so naturally I did want to see this documentary. On the whole I found is fascinating, and much more interesting than I thought I'd find it. The talk of the rags-to-riches humble starts in life came across as very personal to me as well as in terms of their nature historical, and there were parts that I got a chuckle out of Barbie Nation:An Unauthorized Tour such as the S&M scene and the Trailer Trash edition. Barbie Nation:An Unauthorized Tour is filmed nicely, and has some interesting(some on the slightly weird side like the guy who stitches different types of hairs onto his dolls and the guy who reenacts through the dolls aspects of his life) interviews with the fans. The fandom conventions moments were entertaining also, some may already know how the fans behave, as someone who didn't know I was amused, bemused and altogether interested. The karaoke was rather painful on the ears though. All in all, a very good documentary, not something I usually watch but having just had a Barbie movie marathon just recently and hearing of this I thought it would be nice to go with the movie. And it was. 8/10 Bethany Cox
