Just as sweet and entertaining as the first
30 May 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Despite being 20, I do get pleasure watching the Barbie movies. They are cute and fun, even they are on the corny side sometimes. I enjoyed the first Mermaid Tale movie, and was expecting similar for this sequel. And on the whole I got that. It could've been longer perhaps, the story does take time to get going and I personally could've done without the fish puns(Karate Squid and Raiders of the Lost Corp). However, the story on the whole is sweet with a nice message, getting even better with the chemistry between Merliah and Kylie, and the stunts are neatly done. The characters are nothing new compared to other Barbie movies, but Merliah and Kylie are likable with a but of sass and Eris is an effective enough villainess. The supporting characters are also very cute. The voice work is solid, with Kathaleen Barr doing a great job as Eris, and Kelly Sheridan getting better every time. I liked best of all the soundtrack, which is catchy with some whimsical moments as well, and the bright and colourful animation. Overall, sweet and entertaining, a good, if not great, movie. 7/10 Bethany Cox
