"This movie is not for young girls. It is too realistic and the words used are poorly chosen. The characters get angry and yell at eachother and the content is more for adults. Not wholesome or fun at all!!"
Not written for kids!

"I've seen many of the Barbie movies (Barbie Fairytopia: Mermaidia, Barbie Mariposa and Her Butterfly Friends, etc.) and they were great but this poor movie is just sooo sooo confused! Whoever wrote it failed to think about it from the point of view of a little kid. The plot reads like a Gossip Girl episode (in the first few minutes, Barbie, a high school student, gets fired from her starring role in a Hollywood movie, gets trashed on a Perez Hiltonesque website, gets dumped by her boyfriend Ken over the phone, which turns out to be an evil plot hatched by some other girl, and then she goes to France to visit her fashion designer aunt...) really, what 5 year old is going to understand any of this? What was the writer thinking? What age group was she aiming for??
Many scenes are spent with adults standing around talking in accents, it's a waste of time. Maybe the kids will stare at the colors on the screen but compared to all the other Barbie movies which are actually age-appropriate and engaging, this one is a dud.
(Forget the kids, as an adult who loves Gossip Girl and fashion even I'm not having any fun watching this.)
I'll leave on a positive note. The 'flairies' are very pretty and cute but enter the movie way too late, have a very small amount of screen time and aren't utilized enough. The script should have been rewritten from their pov, it would have been much more fun.
Get your kind any of the other Barbie movies before you get this one! (The Tinker Bell movies are really good too!)"
Better than expected.

"I'm a huge Barbie fan and have all her movies! I really enjoyed "The Barbie Diaries" when it came out and hoped they would create another movie like it. Well "Barbie in a Fashion Fairytale" gave me that more teenage, coming of life feel with the fairytale aspect all in one. I throughly enjoyed and would recommend it, not necessarily for children. I mean a lot of people gave this movie a really bad review because they feel it's not geared towards children, but honestly what good cartoons are? Disney movies are not really for children and neither are the Shrek movies, yet kids love them! So don't put down Barbie just because they're trying to get with the times. At least no one is murdered and the bad people turn out good in the end."
