Did We Like The Barbie Movie?

First of all, we all wore pink.

Kidding.

My son did not wear pink to see The Barbie Movie. Or really, it's called Barbie the Movie. He's not against pink, he just didn't have any pink to wear. 

Yes, my son wanted to go. Probably to admire the women in the movie. Also to eat. The movie theater has good food. 

My daughter wore her Liesl dress from The Sound of Music. Our movie theater, Flix Brewhouse, had some cute set ups for the movie:




There was also this set up:





She had a pretty flower in her hair as well. She was the most dressed up from all of us. Naturally.



Tommy wore this:



And I wore my read banned books shirt. I figure it was pink and sent a message: always read the banned books. It's terrible because my son took it and he does not understand angles or background..(My shirt says "I'm with the banned.")



Anyway.

Was the movie any good?

Yes. 

It made me cry, several times. It talks about how it's difficult being a woman these days. No matter what choice we make, we seem to be judged for it. It also touched on mothers and daughters. 

Some men are upset over the movie. They say men are belittled and made to look like idiots in the film. Mind you, this was exactly how women were portrayed in tons of movies. See: Marilyn Monroe. They were supposed to stand there, look pretty, and basically act like morons. Welcome to our world, men.

My son liked the movie. He said it had a good message. I always remind him to respect women. No means no. All of that. Some men haven't learned that lesson yet. 

If you're expecting a silly, mindless film, you'll be mistaken. It wasn't that. (I mean, yes, there are some silly scenes..) But mostly, it'll get you thinking and if you're a woman, nodding. If you're a man who wants to understand, you'll also nod. If you're one of those gross men, you'll probably pout. 

I also managed to get a popcorn bucket. They go fast. AMC and Cinemark had some that sold out quickly. Flix Brewhouse showed theirs on Instagram and they were gone within 2 hours of posting. Thank goodness it's near the house and I was able to swing by. And it was only $12.95 AND I got points added to my account for free stuff:


We truly are using it at a popcorn bucket! 




So go see Barbie the Movie. And let me know if you also think Allan is awesome.

  1. So glad you enjoyed the Movie as a Positive Family Experience, that's what makes going to the Movies such a Joy. I've heard some wacko Politicians making a big deal of the Barbie movie in negative ways just to get attention and be theatrical I suppose, which is rather hilarious, since, Barbie isn't Real, so, Calm Down. The Nation has enuf Real problems that we don't need to fabricate any, that's for sure. Or vilify, of all things, Barbie! *LOL and an Eye Roll* A Fav Blogger makes the most fabulous Barbie dioramas, she really puts so much thought and work into it, Creating pure Magic with her Doll Collection and bringing them to Life.
