I've got to admit, its been a bit to watch a barbie show in detail - I think all us moms do the routine of dishes, laundry and such while the movies playing and watch as we go - this time I sat down, took notes and really paid attention to the story line.
At first I was surprised - Barbie is really grown up! Cell phones, facebook, twitter... she's working on a movie set, gets fired and is upset about all the negative comments in the press. Then Ken breaks up with her! She decides to go to Aunt Millicents to get away - in Paris no less! lol - the story gets better, the glitter, fashion and graphics really holds the kids attentions from here on out and it held mine as well. Millicents old design studio - is really old - it holds an ancient secret cupboard that has flairies (yes FLAIRies - no wings!) that can enhance any design that's deamed worthy. (so the kids see that you have to put something into it to make it worth the magic) - they have to plan, design and make dresses for a fashion show to help buy back the studio - cause if the studio is destroyed, the Flairies loose their magic... I won't tell you how it ends but you know its good, and yes you see Ken at the end... and it's all horse drawn carriages, princesses and castles at the end... keep watching the credits for more scenes to pop up!
It's cute - worth the price and like every Barbie video has a good lesson to learn for real life... just glittafied lol
The movie is released Sept 14th - this coming Tuesday!! It's also a good length movie too - 79 minutes long.
