In this "Movies First" podcast episode, Alex First reviews "Barbie the movie" starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. Set in Barbie land, a world dominated by Barbies and Ken dolls, the film showcases a platonic relationship between the main characters, Barbie (Robbie) and Ken (Gosling). However, Robbie's Barbie starts malfunctioning, leading her on a journey to the real world to find the cause. The movie has its moments of humor and charm, but Alex feels it could have been better, especially with the writing talents of Greta Gourwig and Noah Bombach. Despite its shortcomings, performances by Margot Robbie, Kate McKinnon, and others are commendable. The film pays homage to Barbie's creator, Ruth Handler, and incorporates a mix of toy-like action with real-life scenarios. Alex gives the movie a rating of 6.5 out of 10. **Show Notes:** - **Podcast:** Movies First with Alex First - **Episode:** Review of "Barbie the movie" - **Starring:** Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling - **Plot:** Set in Barbie land, Robbie's Barbie starts malfunctioning and embarks on a journey to the real world, accompanied by Ken. - **Highlights:** - Strong performances by Margot Robbie and Kate McKinnon. - Tribute to Barbie's creator, Ruth Handler. - Blend of toy-like action with real-life scenarios. - Notable scenes: Barbie eating without food, Ken's surfing wipeout. - **Critiques:** - Wanted more depth and cleverness in the script. - Some parts felt like an advertisement for Mattel. - Plotting could have been stronger. - **Rating:** 6.5 out of 10.
