Bratz: Genie MagicClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the BRATZ wear gobs of makeup and skimpy clothes, speak in clichés, and model stereotypes of boy-crazy, shallow tweens. The girls are chased by strange looking clones, tied up, and threatened, all the while fighting and kicking their way to safety. Young girls may be captivated by the glitz but not prepared for the violence and scary turns of the plot. A normal coming-of-age problem is left in the hands of these unrealistic-looking young women, which in turn provides no positive learning for viewers about strong females.
- Sexual Content
