Corny. Maybe they could have hired Jodi Benson...
1 October 2008 | by (Texas, United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, talk about a movie that just lacked about everything. But I will give it this - they didn't waste a lot of money on animators or acting talent. Although I am of the opinion that somebody like Jodi Benson could have at least made things more bearable.

Anyway, here it goes. It wasn't really good on any level. The CGI was shoddy and was sub-standard to even the 1995 levels of "Toy Story". You would think they would be at least that good. Nope.

Second, the story. Haven't we all heard of the 'poisoning (fill in the blank) will lead to a better...' storyline in fantasies? Nothing original here. And that isn't even talking about the lack of character development.

Then comes the grumpy looking creatures that, for some reason, can't stand light. Were they supposed to be evil? No clue here. But they sure don't put up a fight.

Even for kids, this was bad. Just because you put the word "Barbie" on it doesn't mean it deserves a kid's time. "F"
