If you have a little girl, they will love this.... Just be aware that this is an attempt by Mattel to provide more fodder for the big Barbie merchandising machine.
Of course, it delves deeply into the fantasy staples of evil magicians with magical staves, who ride griffins and freeze all who oppose him. He tries to force Annika (Barbie's most recent incarnation) to marry him. Of course, Barbie escapes and has an adventure trying to help her family. Figures that everyone she meets is some kind of royalty - they always are in fantasy novels.
Something else that bothers me is the lack of credit given to the composer of the score. I understand that the classical tradition allows arrangers to quote from past musical masters, but the mention of Beethoven and his Pastoral Symphony, and Peer Gynt's Hall of the Mountain King really should have been done at the beginning. Sorry, but there are too many quotes throughout the movie to allow just the mention of the arranger at the beginning of the movie. (sorry - your name scrolled by during my rant)
Any more and I'll give it away.
