Okay, I remember Barbie from my younger years - the dolls, the dream houses, the accessories of clothes and cars, and so on. But this new Barbie franchise really amazing.

"Barbie in the Nutcracker" tells the Christmas tale of the Nutcracker, with the ballet dances and all; not to mention, it also has a good story that is slightly different from the original ballet (the whole "Sugar Plum Princess" thing, mainly - I think the writers added this in to get the attention of little girls, and a new Barbie doll especially for the film too), but not too different.

The animation isn't bad - it's quite beautiful - as is the actual ballet dancing itself. The light classical ballet music is a perfect touch, making the whole film a majestic piece. Even if you're not a fan of Barbie, this is a wonderful version of the Nutcracker that's worth a watch.

3.5 stars.
