Goofs

When Mandy turns around to walk out the door, she bumps into the wall and drops her glasses. After she gets her glasses back, she bumps into the same wall again. She can still see the wall even without her glasses on, even though she has blurry vision. So it's very likely she was distracted and wasn't being careful or paying attention to where she was walking to, even though she would feel the door. See more »

Quotes

Scanner: [Scans a female doll] Your name is Meghan. You're a lawyer/model.
Meghan: Objection, your honor!
Scanner: [Scans a male doll] Your name is Michael. You're an engineer/model.
Michael: I'm an individual! Exactly like the rest of you.
Scanner: [Scans Moxy, buzzer goes off] You are not a model. Data does not compute.
Scanner: [shorts out] I... I-I... I... tell my family I love her!...
[the scanner falls and breaks; all the dolls turn toward Moxy; Wage points at her and the dolls scream]
Lucky Bat: Ah, must be a customary greeting here.
[screams at a female doll]

Not great, but then again, also not made for me
2 May 2019 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

I don't know how "UglyDolls" made it to theaters instead of just dropping on Netflix, but then again, I'm not in marketing. What unfolds is ninety minutes of bright colors, lots of noise and tired gags. And it's a long ninety minutes.

But the kids in my theater (my 9 year-old included) really liked it. My daughter enjoyed herself, even being moved at one point. And Kelly Clarkson is impressive in her own right.

Best I can offer is actually wait til it's on Netflix, then the ticket price won't sting. But it's harmless.
