In a four-star evaluate of Barbie, NME wrote: “The script accommodates sudden subtlety, significantly through the tender moments which pack an emotional punch. Presumably, a part of Mattel’s motive for bringing Barbie to the massive display screen was altering her outdated picture of inflexible magnificence beliefs and unrealistic physique conformism. So sprinkled all through are advertising and marketing messages (“Barbie means you may be something”) that sound like they arrive straight from a press launch.

“Gerwig is intelligent sufficient to ship these with self-awareness and a few sarcastic jokes (Mirren thanking Barbie for ending misogyny is a spotlight), that means the steadiness between actuality and industrial is rarely misplaced. For a film that ostensibly exists to advertise a doll, that is laudable. Now come on Barbie, let’s go social gathering.”
