I was not excited when this movie came to me in the hand of my 5 yr old daughter while checking out books at the library. I'm not a huge fan of Barbie, but his movie has made me a little less hostile toward Barbie in general. I was surprised when this movie contained excellent classical music portions (which were clearly listed in the beginning credits), and a theme of a prodigal son (Aiden) who returns and asks forgiveness of his father, who tells him he's always loved. I was also vocal with my daughter about how Annika's disobedience to her parents (she was unaware of why she was under such strict confinement in the castle so she leaves to go ice skating) caused her to get into a dangerous situation. Overall I'd say don't be too worried about letting your little girls watch this. There is a lot of magic in this, so if you are trying to avoid that, then steer clear. Magic is something we discuss with her as being not true, and how we put our trust in Christ, not magical stones, etc. In spite of this, we allow movies like this as long as they are not violent. I won't say "great role models" because it's hard to show a role model that's totally unrealistic. The moral themes are okay though.
