A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this movie.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there's lots of scary stuff in Bratz: Kidz Sleepover Adventure -- a series of spooky ghost stories and tales of the girls in dangerous cartoon predicaments (i.e., haunted house, careening roller coaster, cackling clowns, and monsters). The Bratz Kids go unpunished for breaking rules and disobeying parents. There's less focus on fashion and makeup in this feature (except for the heavily made-up teen characters), but there seems to be a general disregard for younger kids' fears and most kids' expectations of stories that make sense and are clearly resolved.

What's the Story?
There's a new girl in town! As a way of getting acquainted, Ginger and her parents invite the Bratz kids for a sleepover. But at bedtime, instead of going to sleep, Cloe, Jade, Yasmin, Sasha, and Megan tell Ginger scary stories. We follow each girl on an imaginary adventure designed to frighten the little girl in grand sleepover tradition. It's a night of talking dogs, a spooky amusement park, monsters, clowns, and wild rides.
Is It Any Good?
A few humorous situations, a funny bad-mouth "insult dog," and some off-beat, twisted non-resolutions, may appeal to older kids and teens. But for the intended audience -- toy-buying little girls -- SLEEPOVER ADVENTURES may be too scary and too sophisticated. And an underlying message is that parents are gullible, unseeing, and powerless.
Finally, the premise of making a new friend and making her feel welcome is quickly forgotten after a night of terrifying her and forcing her to disobey her family's rules. It's doubtful that Ginger would ever want to see any of these Kidz again!
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about how the Bratz kids behave at Ginger's house. How do you behave when you visit someone's home? How do you expect other kids to act when they come to your house?
When a new boy or girl moves into your community or your school, what are some things you can do to make him or her feel welcome? Have you ever been the new kid? How did you feel?
Based on these adventures, do you think the parents of the Bratz Kids should trust what the girls tell them? Why or why not? Why is it important for parents to trust their kids?
