Don’t take your daughter to see Barbie!

WARNING!

By Movieguide® Staff

The new BARBIE movie forgets its core audience of families and children while catering to nostalgic adults and pushing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender character stories.

Furthermore, the movie was poorly made with multiple premises, losing even the most die-hard fans.

To make an appealing movie, executives must define their audience. For Barbie, there was a built-in audience of little girls and merchandise for the movie.

“They had a built-in market and audience for this franchise that they completely ignored,” said a Movieguide® staff member. “Millions of families would have turned out to the theaters and purchased tickets, but instead, Mattel chose to cater to a small percentage of the population who has proven over and over to abandon the box office. Movieguide®’s 40 years of research indicate this just isn’t true, and Mattel has made a grievous mistake.”

Families need to know how bad this is. Not only is it a missed business opportunity for a beloved brand, the movie itself is badly made.

Mattel distributed the movie through Warner Bros., which is not the only studio to forget its core audience.

Pixar and Disney recently suffered severe losses with ELEMENTAL, which also promoted LGBT characters. ELEMENTAL had the lowest opening of any PIXAR movie ever. Disney’s last eight studio releases have lost the company more than $900 million as they continue to move away from family-friendly values.

These studios perform best when they make movies that promote pro-family and biblical values. Even the Barbie cartoon movies promote redemption, compassion, team work, kindness to strangers, self-sacrifice and more. Parents trust the brand, and that is why they must know the truth about the upcoming movie.

Trans BARBIE Actor Calls Movie ‘Candy with a Little Poison’

By Movieguide® Staff

“Barbernhiemer” is all the rage as July 21, 2023 quickly approaches.

The date will provide moviegoers with a unique opportunity to see two highly-anticipated movies in one go: Greta Gerwig’s BARBIE and Christopher Nolan’s OPPENHEIMER.

According to AMC theaters, over 20,000 people purchased tickets to see both movies back-to-back.

However, early screenings of BARBIE, based on Mattel’s iconic doll, revealed that the movie has a strong pro-feminist slant, with a character played by a trans actor, Hari Nef, a man who identifies as a woman.

Discerning viewers should note that the early screenings of BARBIE revealed that the movie is not what it advertised itself to be in trailers and early press—a live-action movie about dolls for young girls and adults who grew up with the toy.

Instead, there is a clear agenda which shows that studios continue to neglect the safety of young children and disregard the biggest audience in cinema, families.

Movieguide® previously reported:

“They had a built-in market and audience for this franchise that they completely ignored,” said a Movieguide® staff member. “Millions of families would have turned out to the theaters and purchased tickets, but instead, Mattel chose to cater to a small percentage of the population who has proven over and over to abandon the box office. Movieguide®’s 40 years of research indicate this just isn’t true, and Mattel has made a grievous mistake.”

In a recent interview with Out, Nef confirmed that the movie is an exploration of femininity and sexualization, with a clear, gross agenda in mind to push sexuality onto children.

“It’s candy with a little poison, and that’s what I like,” Nef told the outlet of BARBIE.

“As much as there’s a celebration of femininity and being a girl in this [movie], I think there’s also an encouragement of letting go of the checklist we ascribe to living and living your life and being in your body your way, on your own terms,” Nef added.

Other issues in the movie include:

  • Little girls smack their baby dolls in the movie and say, “Girls don’t have to be mothers anymore.”
  • Another Attack on the “Patriarchy”:  Barbieville is good because they removed the men, and the women are now in charge, and, if you remove the men, you get rid of problems.
  • Ken is the villain and Barbie hates Ken.
  • Barbie’s Simu Liu Says the Movie Will Be a “Final Nail” For Gender-Based Norms

Whether a biblical worldview is important to you or not, it’s safe to say that most discerning parents don’t want poison mixed in with their children’s candy, let alone their entertainment.
