Thanks to the smart casting of Jon Voight as the school's principal and Lainie Kazan as Yasmin's beloved Bubbie, the two-hour run time won't be a complete bore for adults.

While often cliche ridden and preposterous, it's too busy and loud to put anyone to sleep.

The Hollywood Reporter
Finally, a postfeminist multicultural musical extravaganza for 8-year-old girls. Is Bratz not the most totally stylin' movie ever? Grownups won't think so, but for their daughters who share a "passion for fashion" with the dolls that are giving Barbie a run for her money, it will be the event of the season.

A movie based on a doll line, is an M&M-colored high school fantasia for aspirational 10- and 12-year-old girls who'll be shocked (or, hopefully, delighted) when they get to ninth grade and find out life isn't so super-Bratz-fabulous.
38
A silly movie that's essentially a series of clichés strung together into a semblance of a movie.

The best that can be said about the big-screen Bratz is that they are not nearly as appalling as their toy-shelf twins.

Bratz is way too long.

A live-action film based on a line of dolls, it's pure marketing chum for tweeners: a proudly shallow, purposefully bland ode to girly-girl narcissism. I could actually feel my brain stem shrivel up as I watched it.

Chicago Tribune
The most horrifying film of 2007, Bratz is based on the popular line of collagen-lipped, doe-eyed slut-ette dolls and their male companions, "the boys with a passion for fashion ... and the Bratz!" (In other words, they're bi-curious.)

Miami Herald
In the end, Bratz celebrates something even more important than good grades or good friends: the vital acquisition of totally awesome shoes. Fitting for a movie that exists only to separate you from your paycheck.
0
No, Bratz, an unwitting and witless critique of American consumerism run amok, does not star Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie.
