TOP 100 MOVIES in 2007!
Four teenage girls – Cloe, Jade, Sasha, and Yasmin – all come from different social and economic backgrounds, but they're still best friends who have a "passion for fashion." Aside from fashion, they each have completely different interests and hobbies – and because of that, during their first year of high school, they must face off against the domineering student body president who has carefully devised a social clique system to which all students must follow. So, she makes it her personal mission to split them into different social cliques and break up the Bratz.
"Bratz" is similar to "Mean Girls" with Brattitude. I was a huge fan of "Mean Girls" back in 2004 when it was released and I'm now a huge fan of 'Bratz" for the same reasons. It's fun, quirky, has a great message about staying true to who you are an not letting any peer pressure change who you are, plus there's plenty of laughs and excitement thrown in too. Each of the young actresses in this movie did an excellent job and really made things fun and interesting, attacking their roles with confidence and verve. My main complaint with "Bratz" is that it ran long (about 110 minutes) and dragged a lot towards the end. During the party scene at Meredith's house was when I noticed a significant lull in the pacing of the movie. Plus I was a little disappointed with the big song and dance number at the end because one of the main plotlines was about Yasmin being this amazing singer who has a massive case of stage fright, but when she finally sings, it wasn't that great… it was OK. Other than those minor issues, I really enjoyed this movie and I'd happily go see it again. Overall, I highly recommend this movie to everyone (especially people who've also seen "Mean Girls" and really liked it).
All in all, I'd give this movie 4 Best Friends Forever (out of 5). Re-Watch Value: HIGH (I'll probably see this again in theaters and then later on DVD).
Well it was inevitable that the popular cartoon and toy collection was going to make it to the big screen, so we now have it with "Bratz". I was really kind of dreading this movie and when it first started I was starting to worry, however by the end I was really enjoying it. The movie is along the lines of "Mean Girls", "Sister Act 2" or other young pre-teen type of movies and it seemed to have a good undertone message. The music was cool, the story was fun and the movie was enjoyable to watch. There is enough humor for the kids and adults so both will most likely enjoy if you like movies like this.
Overall Rating: 3 Bratz (out of 5). Re-Watch Value: Moderate (I will most likely purchase on DVD.)
Trivia: (1) Paula Abdul was originally hired as the movie's Executive Producer, Fashion Designer, and Dance Choreographer. During an episode of her reality TV series _"Hey, Paula" (2007) _, she found out that she had been fired from the movie through an e-mail message on her Blackberry. (2) Susie Singer Carter wrote much of the screenplay, but lost credit in Writers Guild arbitration to the bewilderment of the producers and director. Her name appears as screenwriter on the final movie poster.
