I was very skeptical about letting my four-year-old daughter watch this
movie as I generally don't like the messages taught by "girls'" movies.
However, I was very pleasantly surprised at how positive this movie is.
Unlike the Disney princess movies, it focuses on personal achievement
rather than on romance. The heroine's goal isn't to fall in love and
get married, but rather, to learn and grow and save the world. She
doesn't wait around to be rescued. Instead, Barbie/Elina is pro-active
in solving her crisis. I also like that the villainess is not fat. She
is curvy but it serves more to show that she is older and more
experienced than Barbie/Elina, making her a more formidable opponent.
Finally, this movie also shares an often hard-to-learn lesson: not
everyone is going to like you or want to be your friend but that
doesn't make them evil. Sometimes we have to work with people with whom
we don't agree in order to accomplish the task at hand.
