What a breath of fresh air from the last few terrible Barbie movies.
For some reason 2 years ago Mattel changed and created a modernised Barbie, and it all became about laptops, the internet, web blogs etc It seemed as though they had surfed the internet, found everything that is popular and then used the slightest excuse to shove that into their movies.
The last movie, Pink Shoes, mixed the original and modernised Barbie but did not work and was unsuccessful.
Now the latest movie is back to original Barbie again YaaY! But unfortunately is so boring, my kids walked away. Nothing happens, characters meet, then talk, then meet up again and talk some more. There is virtually zero action, zero suspense, and moves at the pace of an anorexic turtle.
Overall i welcome the return of the old school Barbie, but this movie just plods along, a pale comparison to Diamond Castle, Rapunzel, Swan Lake etc.
