Bratz: The Movie
And now the moment we’ve all been waiting for… a movie based on a range of dolls for preteen girls. For those who aren’t in the know, Bratz (we like the 'z' – it gives them an edge) are dolls that wear skimpy tops, low-cut jeans, and give every self-respecting mother a hefty fright. Its, like, all about girl power.

The story is about four galfriends who start high school only to find it a hive of social cliques. They are torn asunder, finding themselves pulled further and further apart. So the gals band together and form 'The Bratz' to fight peer pressure, in turn learning how true empowerment means standing up for your friends, being true to oneself, living out one's dreams, wearing great shoes etc etc. More

Finally, a postfeminist multicultural musical extravaganza for 8-year-old girls. Is Bratz not the most totally stylin' movie ever? Grownups won't think so, but for their daughters who share a "passion for fashion" with the dolls that are giving Barbie a run for her money, it will be the event of the season...

It's a movie on the wrong side side of the so-bad-it's-good line...

this flick actually damages your IQ. I took along my tweenie niece to test whether I'm just too old for all this, but she was unimpressed too. While the Bratz may think BFF stands for Best Friends Forever, it must really mean: Bratz Fashionista Fascists...

A live-action film based on a line of dolls, it's pure marketing chum for tweeners: a proudly shallow, purposefully bland ode to girly-girl narcissism. I could actually feel my brain stem shrivel up as I watched it...

Ultimately, an utterly harmless time-passer, but one which has little appeal beyond its target audience...
