I don’t like dolls.  My mom collects them, mainly antique or elaborate foreign dolls.  I had a bunch of action figures as a child, which is more of a man doll than most of us are willing to admit.  Still, I fail to understand the magnetic draw they can have upon people.  How can they be so entranced?  They dress them up a little bit and then you make funny voices and they hop around and it’s all so boring.  Here’s a movie kids are so enchanted by, they buy the dolls it was made about.

Starting this September 2nd, now available on DVD from MGA Entertainment and Lionsgate Home Entertainment comes the next regrettable chapter in a wholly forgettable franchise.  Their first musical DVD, Bratz Girls Really Rock – A Bratz Musical! is ready to explode out of your television screen and take your living room by storm.  Bring this film home for the pretentious, borderline slutty tween in your family!

This film is the first ever musical feature in this whole franchise.  The four friends, Yasmin, Cloe, Jade and Sasha, are back and they are setting out to rock.  They have enrolled at Camp Starshine, a top-of-the-line school for acting, dancing, and looking good.  Everyone is having fun, but all the instructors start making it a little too intense.  Then they get an opportunity to win the talent show and win a chance to perform at Hollywood.  The girls split up, but will they come back together to show the rest of the camp the importance of friendship?

The special features included in this DVD are an interview with Jasmin Larian, the inspiration behind Yasmin, deleted scenes which did not make the final cut of the movie, a feature which allows you to make your own music videos, a sing-along function to the new songs, and some hilarious bloopers.

My feelings about this film should be abundantly transparent by now.  I’m sure these dolls and movies are achieving some positive – their emphasis on multi-cultural people is noteworthy.  Too bad it seems like it’s all about multi-cultural sluts.  I didn’t like the girls that dressed like these dolls when I was in high school and I certainly don’t like them now.  This emphasis on how they look and just how cool they all are is one of the worst possible influences on young girls in America today.  Also, the music sucks.

Parents, girls are bad enough without them trying to be Bratz.

This DVD is available at Amazon.com.
