Bratz: The Movie

What it's about:

Four differently-coloured identical friends share one unifying factor: fakeness. Until their friendship is challenged when they succumb to the evil school captain's divide and rule social clique system. But when detention draws them together again, they buck the system, with tedious consequences.

What we thought of it:

Ever seen a bunch of obviously-popular tweenie girls hanging around at a mall trying to act like they're cool? They do nothing without an eye in the mirror. They're overtly sexual without understanding the meaning of the moves they're making. Guys (at least, the sane ones) take one look at them and pray never to father a girl. Girls (the insane majority) take one look at them, squirm for the silly child they once were and wish they had their figure. Oh it's disturbing as all hell.

Bratz is disturbing too. Because despite the plastic performances, the naf and mixed moral messages, the stereotypes and all that, it's addictively watchable even if you're way older than the 9-year-old target market. Although it's boring, it's also a bang-on portrayal of 10-year-olds by the 16-year-old actresses playing them as 14-year-olds. It's compulsively watchable, in precisely the same way as Girls of the Playboy Mansion is... just much, much longer and with more sexy dancing.

Do you also find that kind of creepy?
