BARBIE IN A MERMAID TALE 2 cover image
This movie is great for surfers, skate boarders and Barbie fans. Malia is half human and half mermaid. She enjoys both her water world and human world. There are times that she has to choose which world is more important to her. She's very competitive in her human world and sometimes forgets her obligations to her water world. Malia is in surfing competition in her human world and does not want to go to her water world for an important ceremony. Her mom is very sad because she choose the human world over the water world on this important day. Malia has an evil aunt who was put into the wind tunnel because she's bad. The evil aunt somehow tricks her competitor, "Kylie" to help her out of the wind tunnel. This puts the water world into harm's way. The aunt then traps Kylie in the wind tunnel. Malia senses that there is something bad happening to the water world. She swims into the ocean to look for her mom. While she's looking for her mom, she sees that Kylie is trapped in the wind tunnel. Malia helps Kylie out of the wind tunnel and gives up her secret to save Kylie. After this rescue, Malia and Kylie join forces to help the water world from the evil aunt. There is a lot of excitement with all the twists and turns, Malia and Kylie have a hard time fighting her evil aunt and her electric fish. At the end, Malia has to make a decision to be a human or mermaid to save the water world from evil. There are a lot of funny lines from the sea animals and I laughed a lot. This movie shows us how competition is good and bad. If we focus too much on winning, we tend to do the wrong thing to win. This is why we need to look into our skills and what we can do to improve what we have, rather than focus on our competitor and what they have. If you have a good heart and follow what your heart tells you to do, you will do the right thing. The music is very upbeat and the story line is very easy to follow. The surfing tricks are awesome. I give this movie 4 star out of 5 and recommend this for kids ages four to ten. This is Cheyenne Nguyen (age 8) reporting for KIDS FIRST!
The main characters are strong girls and women who support each other in friendship and in athletic competition. Portrays active girls who are self-assured and comfortable with themselves. Contains many positive messages; life isn't a competition, true worth isn't measured in comparison to others, risking everything to do what is right, and that it is really special being a part of something bigger. The characters wrestle with many social and emotional issues, such as: belonging, responsibility, good sportsmanship, friendship and forgiveness. The characters are mostly girls and women, many in leadership roles, such as ruling kingdoms, ambassador positions, marketing executives and athletes. The women are determined, strong willed and loyal, while simultaneously working together to save the ocean and support each other's personal needs. Very linear, not confusing, simple story line.
