L.O.L. Surprise!: The Movie

By Jennifer Borget, Common Sense Media Reviewer

age 7+

Toy-themed movie is cute but unexciting; heavy on marketing.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (9 ):

The lighthearted story features a warm message and the colorful, diverse characters from the L.O.L. Surprise! universe. Big Sis Royal Bee is stylish and fabulous with her golden afro, and it's endearing to see her take Ava, aka Queen Bee, under her wing. But the story feels a little disjointed and sometimes slow with its segmented alternate endings. Kids and parents alike may enjoy the lessons about overcoming fears and working together. Younger L.O.L Surprise! fans will enjoy seeing their favorite characters on the scene, but the older crowd, or those unfamiliar with the franchise, might see it as an obvious marketing ploy and find it too cheesy to enjoy.
