Overall: B
Imagine Toy Story II meets Fantasia 2000, and you’ll have a good idea of what to expect from Barbie’s first movie. This version supplies more plot and violence than the traditional rendition, which may be a concern to purists and very young viewers. Other than the obvious marketing ploy, the film may also sell its predominantly female audience on ballet too.
