Not for children...
OK, let's show proof that I AM a guy and I have a twelve year old companion who'd dragged me to see this film a while ago. I wasn't expecting ANYTHING from Bratz since first of all, I'm not a big fan of the T.V. series that used to come on on the FOX channel and second of all, it was extravagantly girlie. But all in all, this film was beyond average. The theme song was kind of off for the Bratz Babyz and their characters were out-of-character compared to the dolls in the store, and why put in annoying twins puppy such as Nita & Nora and a bad-ass dog named Snappy? Let me explain, Nita is the absolute disrespectful and hot-headed child who's willing to get her way and is always cruel to her twin sister, Nora.
Nora is a timid kid twin of Nora who's always been bickered by her.
Snappy is an energetic puppy in which Nora coincidentally takes to the mall and gets herself into trouble after the puppy escapes into the mall.
See? These characters are just downright annoying, I mean, and what's up with their clothes? They're so small, skimpy and revealing; even a skirt wouldn't have the size of that, not even a Hawaii mini skirt. The plot follows babies "titled the Bratz" who roam the mall, looking for a puppy who's circumventing among the mall. Soon thereafter, he is kidnapped by a mall bully named "Duane" who's demanding fifty dolls to give the puppy for sale.
I'm sorry to say that this film is WAAY too short for me. Its flow is too rushed, its plot is rushing also. The songs like "Ready or Not" are too old for its style that not even a twelve-year-old would understand. And I forgot to mention the animation/visuals? They're horrible, I mean, there are WAY too many character errors and the scenery looks like something a two-year-old made. These babies are just too arrogant for their own good and are always putting too much pride in themselves.
I'm not forcing anyone to avoid the movie, but maybe kids who'd prefer more kid-friendly films/shows like Strawberry Shortcake shouldn't watch this.
