Nice movie
29 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have made no secret of liking the Barbie movies, they are not perfect and none of among my favourite movies, but they are cute and have a sense of fun. A Mermaid Tale is no exception. The animation is really lovely, beautiful colours and gorgeous underwater sequences, and the music is catchy. The dialogue has its corny parts but is generally sweet and has its heart in the right place, the story is on the clichéd and rushed side but again it means well and is charmingly told and the characters while not much different from characters in other Barbie movies are still likable, especially Merliah's cute little friends. The voice work is still going strong, with Kelly Sheridan continuing to grow and very engaging throughout. All in all, not one of my favourite Barbie movies, but very nice all the same. 7/10 Bethany Cox
