I really liked the graphics in this, the characters really looked like barbie dolls and some of the scenes were genuinely beautiful, especially during the Life in Color song. I absolutely loved the diversity, not with just the color of their skin, but the different heights and weights as well; that's really rare in Barbie stuff. However, the story was so all over the place that if you blinked once, you missed a whole scene. There was a great message in this and a lot of pros, but the plot and story brought that all down. A step in the right direction, though.
Okay, the graphics were mostly horrendous but it was still a fairly entertaining watch. I loved the relationship between Barbie and Raquelle, and Ken was absolutely hilarious. A bunch of plot holes that were glaringly obvious, but I just ignored them and enjoyed myself. A fun little film.
I would have liked this a lot more if it was less focused on her relationships with men. Especially since most of them, except her father, were negative and laced with sexual assault in some way. That car scene was just too much; what was the point of making her friends with Olivia, who was a genuinely nice person, just for that scene to happen. The buildup was horrible. She had no positive relationships that lasted with any women. I hate when it's obvious a male directed a film with a female lead.
