Oh my god, this movie totally sucks

VIDEO: Watch the trailer for Bratz.

So like, oh my God. You guys? This movie? Totally sucks. A paean to consumerism in all its forms, Bratz is based on those slutty dolls people inexplicably buy for their kids. You know, the ones that look like hookers? In this live-action film directed by Disney Channel stalwart Sean McNamara, four Bratz come to shallow, materialistic life. Jade, Yasmin, Cloe, and Sasha are bff’s 4-eva until they hit high school and get sucked into the cliques run by the power-hungry principal’s daughter. She’s so evil, she’s even rigged the school talent show. How do our flighty young heroines fight back? By shopping, of course. There is no problem, it seems, a new tube top and mini-skirt can’t fix. If only that were true — I could have hit Forever 21 after the depressingly well-attended screening and shopped until my will to live came back.
