A Disgrace to the Barbie Films

Another awful Barbie movie. The main character complains far too much and is annoying. The story is very predictable, and in the end, it doesn't feel like the main character learned anything. Also, I think the villain is really lame. The villain is constantly asking the merfolk, "Do you adore me?" and just for that, she is very annoying. Also, for a good 5 minutes the characters really just spend time shoppping. This probably only happened to promote more toys. This movie had potential but it really sunk.

Barbie: In a Mermaid Tale

Barbie is a generous roll-model. The show did release lots of merchandise. I have only seen short clips of the movie but the animation looks eye-catching.

Barbie in a mermaid tale is for kids all ages

it is a great movie no violence or anything to harm your child i would suggest this is my opinion it is not yours so i would suggest watching a trailer this should sum up the whole movie so if you think anything is wrong which it is not what i admire for kids is that the surfers don't wear bikini bottoms they were nice suitable shorts no disrespectful language or anything it's a perfect little thing for your angels! Thank you
