Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (3 ):

This fairly likable movie emphasizes the value of friendship. When the competition gets tough, Team Pockets keeps its perspective and puts an emphasis on having fun and supporting each other over winning. And there's an honest discussion of Polly's mixed feelings about her father's remarriage. Polly decides, at some personal sacrifice, that her father's apparent happiness is more important than her own worries.

However, fashion and shopping are almost as important as friendship and familial support here. There are three epic shopping excursions and a spa visit (with the promise of a second). The most interesting sets are available as retail toys, and kids may recognize the catchy pop songs as Polly Pocket-toy sound effects. The animation is lovely and candy-colored, with appealing scene transitions. The games are easy to play for younger kids but would probably not appeal to girls older than 8 or boys of any age.
