Critical analysis of any Barbie movie is like attempting to extract blood from a turnip. There is nothing of merit to critically dissect. It's just pure, less than juvenile garbage. They are, to the letter, stilted, terribly scripted, amateurish CG animated, middling voice acting (though hardly the worst I've ever heard), with incredibly stupid, improbable stories and plots and manufactured dialog that would never come from a human's mouth. You feel certain you've dropped 2 or 3 IQ points after watching one of these monstrosities.
With these exceptionally low standards for context, the "Fairy Secret" may be the bottom 2 or 3 of these exceptionally terrible cookie-cutter, quasi-formulaic junk piles geared for little girls who think they want to be Barbie and that we parents are in the unfortunate position of occasionally having to watch with our little ones. The dialog and "plot" (for a story that's mind-numbingly idiotic) are both so awful that one will find oneself groaning constantly throughout the time you've wasted watching it.
Whereas some minor merit can occasionally be extracted out of some of the Barbie movies - as in maybe there's a slightly funny joke or at least the plot isn't entirely stupid, little can be said that is positive about this one. It's like the writer isn't even trying to create believable characters, dialog, or plot, even at the level of the fantastical. Perhaps the writer is so underpaid that they barely phone it in. Perhaps they are already angry that they have to have this trash on their resume. Maybe they will legally change their name after being associated with a movie like this. Whatever the case, it doesn't make for a good movie.
Save your little girls the trouble and rent something vastly better that nearly all kids enjoy - like pretty much any Pixar movie.
