Barbie has been losing relevance since the early 2000s when Bratz rivaled it in popularity. At least Transformers and GI Joe have elements to at least make a decent popcorn action film. Barbie is just a boring perfect blonde with a gay boyfriend living in Malibu. Not much to make a plot from. There were a bunch of Barbie cartoon movies for little kids that played with fantasy ideas. But nothing about Barbie would work for live-action.

Barbie being a fashion doll doesn't have much of a narrative other than "she can be anything." That's why she had many animated movies in different roles and occupations. She's literally a blank slate. It seems from the trailer they are making it a self-aware parody like Baywatch and The Brady Bunch Movie but I'm not sure it can work for a feature length film. Also the Toy Story franchise already did that parodying of Barbie and Ken and it worked as a side gag.

The CGI set design looks great but everything else doesn't. Instead of ticking checkboxes all over the place with people too old/ordinary/fat, why not use some actors that are just spectacularly good looking? I really think that audiences are getting over all this 'everyone is awesome' crap and are primed for something else. A movie about Barbie is the ideal showcase for spectacular male and female beauty. FFS use some of the new talent out there and create the next generation of sex symbols rather than falling back on all the usual crap suspects.

And while I'm at it, Will Ferrell is the omen of bad movies.

The only bit that vaguely amused me was Ken suggestively asking if he could stay over, to which Barbie responds “what for?” “I’m …not actually sure!” His inferred realisation that he doesn’t actually have genitalia is quite funny.

The “beach you off” gag is terrible, though, made worse by the fact they keep repeating it. Is “beach you off” or “beach off” even an expression? I’ve never heard it before (I’m not American, mind you). A play on words like that will only work if it’s clever and not something you’ve just pulled straight out your ass.

Young millennial and Gen Z girls and gays loved Bratz, American Girl and Monster High because they were more diverse. Bratz especially was huge because they had racially ambiguous anime-ish features and wore modern day 2000s fashions. American Girl was popular with middle-class parents because they were educational and featured different backgrounds. Barbie was considered very antiquated by the 2000s for it's unbearable California WASPiness and looking like a blonde bimbo. Barbie started ripping off other brands to keep up with the changing times and Mattel's lawsuit against MGA over Bratz was to destroy it's competition.

Why are we even comparing them? Barbie was very white blonde beautiful tall supermodel WASP from sunny California and living the ultimate charmed life.
