They've cast a lot of British 'faces' like the Derry Girls girl and Jamie Demetriou (who for some reason people in the UK find hilarious), and Ncuti Gatwa. Wonder why they did that in a story about a quintessentially American concoction like Barbie

Here is what will happen.
1) Greta gerwig wrote and directed it. Therefore it will be an insider movie.
2) it will tank and the overtly gayness will be to blame

Who will see this? Little kids like Minecraft, Legos and Pokemon. Little girls have stuff like Monster High and Lol Surprise Dolls. 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.

For me, the interesting thing is that a few times Hollywood tried to make a real life action movie of Masters of the Universe after the one with Dolph Lundgren (one attempt was with Sex and the City's Jason Lewis and then a fairly recent one with Noah Centineo). But they got shelved. But THIS gets greenlit, filmed and released?

Fantasy world building is VERY expensive. Unless you have solid backing you just can't do it. Barbie, for what it is, is a longstanding known commodity.

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.

If anyone thinks this is going to be a comedy classic, I wouldn't get my hopes up. Is it an inside joke where Ken-Gossling tells GayAsian Ken he will beat him off? This dud won't help overrated Greta Gerwig career either. I'm surprised she didn't cast Timothee as one of the Barbies. Greta is bragging about the screenplay too. Her manly vibe and fem "partner" won't be bragging so much when the box office is totaled up.

I'm prejudiced against it but that looks leaps and bounda worse than I expected.
Movie studios are able to make clever, charming movies about Lego bricks. At least Barbie and Ken are humanoid. The dialogue looks terrible and to my dying day, I will never understand what makes Ryan Gosling gorgeous to people. He looks like a melting camel to me most of the time but the blond hair makes him look...a lot worse. I always pictured Ken as looking more generically but objectively handsome like Trevor Donovan.

Is it a comedy? It's not funny at all.
Is it a movie for kids? I thought so until the semi-dirty joke. But the joke isn't funny and it's not *that* adult, and so I'm still not sure what the tone of the movie is meant to be.
Or if there's a plot. Is the plot that they go rollerblading?

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.

In slang, a troll is a person who posts or makes inflammatory, insincere, digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages online (such as in social media, a newsgroup, a forum, a chat room, an online video game), or in real life, with the intent of provoking others into displaying emotional responses, or manipulating others' perception, thus acting as a bully or a provocateur.

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.
