Last night I actually watched a (urp) Barbie (urp) movie with my daughter. She has been after me to watch one of these things that she loves oh so much, and I keep finding excuses not to. Last night, I had none and decided to get it over with.
You know...it wasnt awful. I was a bit surprised that Barvie, in this "Barbie diary" was not one of the "popular" girls at her school. Yeah, right. Like I believe that. With those measurements? She would be OH so popular with the little boys, Im sure.
Anyway, it was slightly entertaining and even made me chuckle a little, and not from me making fun of it either. I tried to find things to make fun of too, but I really couldnt.
But there was not ONE single overweight kid in Barbie's highschool. Not a one. Oh and Ken? He must have gotten his GED, or transferred, or been kicked out for his hair or something because he wasnt in it at all. Is Ken obsolete? Im beginning to think so. Poor Ken. He is replaced by a stupid kid named....oh what the heck was his name..oh, right. Todd. A name you would guess for a highschool football player, deemed "the hottest guy in school". Whatever. I thought Barbie's friend Kevin was much more appealing..as he is the one that made me chuckle. His reply to Barbie when she complained about her enemy getting a job she wanted at the school because she was "fresh and lively"?
"sounds like a deoderant".
yeah, I laughed.
Another thing that bothered me is that Barbie was ALWAYS wearing shoes..even on her bed and on the couch. I dont know about you but everytime I see her in my daughter's room, she is barefoot. Every.time.
In the movie, she was wearing flip flops a lot. Isnt that kind of impossible? I mean there is no space between her toes..they are stuck together and do not have gaps for the little thong thing to go in between the toes..so whats up?
Trick photography and special effects these days, I tell ya.
