Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (4 ):

There are fewer simple "messages" in this Barbie movie and more adventure and derring-do; it's surprising to see fashionista, shopaholic, and iconic princess Barbie as a superhero. But it serves a very definite purpose: Barbie is effective, strong, resourceful, brave, and comfortable with power in this tale. Her two best friends are astonishingly competent in the realms of science and technology; they're fully at ease with physical facts and numbers. All in all, those traits are valuable for Barbie fans to recognize as viable for growing girls. Still, there is a lot of action and peril where very little has come to be expected, so some young fans might find it unsettling.
