Not up to usual Barbie standards
17 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have daughters 6 and 8 that love the other Barbie movies, Nutcracker, Princess and Pauper, Swan Lake, etc. These were surprisingly wonderful. Great animation, scripts, production values, camera angles, and most importantly they had stories with character values that you want your daughters to have. You wanted your daughters to grow up Courage, perseverance, loyalty, kindness, sensitivity, intelligence were valued even more than physical beauty in Barbie and her friends. Barbie was a great role model that parents could hold up as an example. She often rescued the boy or saved the day. In Princess and the Pauper, Barbie left the guy to pursue her dreams and only returned much later. Barbie had come far from her days of saying, "Math is hard!" My wife and I bought the Barbie movies with confidence.

Quite frankly, Barbie will have to regain our trust after this movie. A teen-aged Barbie giggles her way trying to get in with a popular crowd. The script was not good and the animation seemed off and difficult to watch. Barbie did redeem herself somewhat in the end, but most of the movie was painful at worst and boring at best.

The only saving grace was that watching this movie with our daughters gave us a chance to show them how NOT to behave.

I hope the producers read this and return to previous form.
