In the end, she discovers what makes you different can also be your greatest strength.




  • Great

    By Garrus Vakarian12
    Great. My third favorite Barbie movie after Great Puppy Adventure and Princess Charm School. I think this film portrays a more realistic character than most Barbie films as Merilia is more concerned about her own desires and comes a little selfish, which is ok as many people in the real world are gray and not entirely good. The film has some twists and I like how she is a good role model.
  • Bad

    My sister claimed it was so good, so I joined into watching it. Little did I know that I forgot how the animation was horrid and bad. Yes I get 2012 was not a good year, but anyway. After watching 20 minutes I sobbed tears because the idea of the movie plot was so ugly. And the fact they made the villain so in evil and weird was awful as well. I feel like I would rate this 0 stars for the worst characters. The fish look like a shark tale movie. It was super bad, don’t waste your time even watching the trailer.

    Why is Barbie always so perfect!!!! And I don't get why people give mermaids gills, clearly their mammals! I think of them as manatees, or dolphins, or whales. Plus mammal tails go up and down, and fish tails go side to side. And since they gave them gills, what's the point of noses? Just saying.
  • Fun!

    While it doesn't hold quite the place in my heart that Princess and the Pauper and Twelve Dancing Princesses do, Barbie in a Mermaid Tale is still a fun romp under the sea. Merliah is a very real character, and she overcomes her selfishness, creating a very positive message.
