Barbie: The Princess & The PopstarClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Barbie: The Princess and The Popstar is Mattel's version of The Prince and the Pauper. There are a few mild insults ("buffoon," "loco") and a subplot involving a criminal plan to steal a precious, diamond-encrusted magical plant. Like all of the Barbie movies, the storyline is a means to appeal to interested girls who will go on to ask their parents for the specific Barbie dolls (in this case Tori or Keira). Marketing reasons aside, this is a harmless movie about getting the chance to be "who you want," venture outside your comfort zone, and learn what it's like to be different, even if it's just for a couple of days.
- Sexual Content
- Flirting involves one of the main characters falling directly on top of a guy. Later, the guy helps the "princess" during a crucial moment, and lingering looks are exchanged.
- The villain smacks his assistant for almost telling the truth about their evil plan. Comical physical comedy as two men attempt to unlock a door.
- Mild insults: "party pooper," "loco," "buffoon," "crazy," and "quitter."
- Social Behavior
- By switching places, Tori and Keira realize that the grass is always greener no matter who you are -- the pop star wants to be more like the princess, and vice versa. They both learn about the importance of caring for those who are less fortunate and not living in the small bubble of their status or fame.
