Relax, Parents.

I was a young, impressionable girl when I first watched this movie (over and over, I may add), and now I’m an almost 16 year old teenager, and believe me, it was not all everyone says it was. There are quite literally no questionable things in it. I mean, okay, every single movie creator in any franchise history tries to sneak in some references that parents don’t like. But look around ?? Stop picking on the bratz for it. Every movie does it. Barbie. Harry Potter. Even Nick Jr. shows. Bratz is a humorous, fun-loving series that shows the struggles of friendship but how it ultimately perseveres. The girls, honestly, are accurately depicted. Parents need to take a moment to check the girls at their local high school, and see that the bratz are not inaccurate in the slightest, from their dress, to their behavior, hair, anything. So parents, just relax. It will not corrupt your kids.

Bratz is amazing!

Anyone who has a child can rest assured about this film. Though many try to say that Bratz are too "sexy" for younger audiences they are,sadly, seriously mistaken and possibly a bit obscene. There is nothing sexual about these characters, and the ridiculousness surrounding such a notion takes away from the positive message evoked by these characters. These characters represent innocence, purity, and fun that many young girls now need to be reminded still exist, while still staying true to the fact that these characters are in high school. A wonderful family movie that has great music, funny characters , and a great message to boot.
