BARBIE (Released to Theaters USA 2023)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì 

Barbie—terrific storyline that tells itself well—has a surprise message in the latter part of the movie that makes the film soar as a quality watch. The movie starts well and ends well. Watch for that serious upgrade in meaningful content when Barbie returns to her comfort zone, Barbie Land. Great acting and presentation mark the movie. It’s clean, honest, and as real as Barbie Land can be in an adult and child’s imagination. One of the best of 2023, Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling make the perfect team to interpret the script. Watch for the lovely Rhea Perlman’s distinctive appearance. Also, don’t miss the Matrix Reloaded scenes as perfect additions to the film’s story. As long as children play with Barbie and Ken dolls, this is a film that stands the test of time. WOW! Add this movie to the home video library.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Barbie from the top of its ‘big hair’ to its ‘tippy toes’ is a great watch. Creative, outstanding dialogue, and something to say about life…don’t prejudge this one as a film just for little girls…this is a big audience-range movie. It passes the international movie acid test and makes a terrific addition to the home video library. Easily earns a second watch…a stand up and cheer movie...joyful.
