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

Mandy: So, are you really here just to train for the big world?
Moxy: Uh huh, you bet and we're all going to end up with our own special kid to love.
Mandy: You do know that Lou is going to make it super hard. Right?
Moxy: Well I say bring it on Louis!
Mandy: He means well of course, though he can be a bit judgmental.
Lucky Bat: You think?
UglydogWage: Still, without his constructive criticism, none of us would ever get anywhere. So, just stay on his good side.

Lackluster in every possible aspect
19 July 2019 | by er_ouzSee all my reviews

UglyDolls is the story of a bunch of defective ("ugly") dolls who where rejected from the assembly line, but are now trying to find a way through QA (quality assurance) and out to the world. On their journey they need to confront bigotry and obstacles from the perfect dolls. The story itself is ok, and could make for a good movie, but unfortunately the movie is amazingly lackluster in every sense of the world and on every field: the songs are mostly dull and unmemorable (though some are better then others). Humor is scant to non-existant, many of the characters are flat and non-descript, and the environment (apart from UglyVille) is non existent, meaning most of the time the characters are acting on flat solid color backgrounds or in minimal environments with little detail. For me, this lack of care (or budget) for visuals is what hurt this movie the most, making the world unappealing and dull.

This is not a horrible movie, plot holds up, acting is ok, and while most elements are mediocre or sub-par, non are outright bad. That being said, I really wouldn't recommend the movie very much unless you have nothing else to watch, and don't come with high expectations,
