Storyline

In the island kingdom of Flutterfield, in the wondrous land of Fairytopia, the butterfly-winged fairies fly carefree high into the blue sky. Unfortunately though, Henna, Flutterfield's Queen envious attendant, without remorse, poisons her with the intention to take over the entire kingdom. As a result, the precious shimmering lights that keep safe the helpless and fragile fairies from the claws of the Skeezites, a tribe of ravenous nocturnal flying monsters, are now beginning to flicker, in grave danger of forever going out. Inevitably, knowing that if Queen Marabella perishes, all the fairies will be left unprotected, courageous Mariposa and her trustworthy fairy-friends Rayna and Rayla will have to undertake a perilous journey far away from Fairytopia's protective boundaries in search of a potent antidote. Hurry up fairies. Written by Nick Riganas

Corny. Maybe they could have hired Jodi Benson...
1 October 2008 | by 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"
