"My five year old has been a Bratz fan since she was practically a toddler, so when she saw the commercial for their first movie, she almost hyperventilated! Needless to say, it is now a part of our collection, and is probably the most watched DVD she has...even more than the Barbie movies she loves so much.
The animation is very clear and the storyline is typical teen angst...Yasmin, Jade, Cloe, and Sasha are assigned a project that may clash with their plans to get ready for the prom. When certain Bratz secrets are revealed in the course of the assignment and published for all to see, one of them is falsely accused and the arguments begin. Dana and Nevra also make cameo appearances during the course of the movie.
I've been kind of love/hate about the Bratz because of their too sultry appearance, sexy clothes, virtual lack of noses, and feet that pop off, but my daughter is enthralled with them, and seeing as Barbie hasn't had any major lasting negative effects on my life, I'll go with the flow of the new generation of dolls!
Since we've gotten the Bratz movie, she's probably watched it 3 or 4 times per week...definitely worth our investment."
I knew it was coming!

"With all the hype Bratz had made since it's coming out, I knew the movie would soon follow. I purchased it for my 8 year old daughter who loves these dolls. If your a Bratz fan, this is a great buy. The only part that bothered me is that there is no parental control, as if these 16 years olds live on there own. Well, it is their movie debut, so I guess you can't ask for much, after all, did we ever see Barbie's parents...?
If your child is really into Bratz, trust me, they will get a kick out of this movie, and hopefully more will follow. Great dvd extras to enjoy. It's basically the 4 friends being teenagers, having fun, and learning a lesson along the way.Hope this helped! Have fun!"

"Cloe, Yasmin, Jade, and Sasha are getting ready for the best prom EVER! But a newly assigned school project about "self-expression" sticks them with a heavy load, and the girls are wondering if they'll be able to ace the project AND have a rockin' prom. When it's finally decided that the girls will take turns filming their preparations for prom and day-to-day lives for the project, the girls are thrilled that things are working out. Will the prom be the best ever, as the girls dream it will be? Or will the new gossip columnist ruin the prom AND their friendships?
First off, let me just say that after watching this movie, I couldn't help smiling at how odd it was to see characters that I'm so used to giving a personality to, with their own personalities. But I still liked the personalities that were given to them! Well, all except for Cloe, anyway. She was conceited and a little bit stuck up sometimes. The only personality that never sickened me once was Sasha's. She was cool! Anyway, this was a good movie, considering that it's based on dolls. It was longer than the "My Scene" movie (a rip-off forty-some minutes) lasting for one hour and one minute. The animation seemed lame at first, but it was better after getting used to it. The movie was sickening in some parts (ex: Jade is afraid she's losing her "fashion sense") and the movie was almost more like a long episode of a T.V. show than an actual movie, but I say that it's worth renting, especially if your child, sister, etc. is not old enough to realize that some parts are cheesy, or if you don't mind, yourself. The bonus features were cool, although I highly recommend that you don't let little ones watch the deleted scene, because it was surprisingly creepy. (I was watching it in the dark, too!) The dress-up game was basically just the game off the website, the karaoke looked uninteresting, and the music video was boring, but the horoscope was okay, and the trivia was sort of fun. I guess I just think that the special features were nice because it's just a shorter-than-most-movies-and-never-been-in-theaters DVD, and to have all of those bonuses is a big extra. Overall, I say rent the movie, like I did! It was good, but unless you have a younger child who adores it, it's not worth buying."
The Bratz Movie is the Best!!

"I really enjoyed this movie. It's so cool. The Bratz should have come out with another movie earlier than this one. But, if there had been one before this one, it wouldn't have been better! There are also tons of cool features to go to. I just had to watch this movie right away when I got it. I am a major Bratz fan, and I collect alot of Bratz stuff. So, if you are a major Bratz fan like me, buy this DVD today!"
