Hi Barbies!! So, I saw Greta Gerwig’s Barbie last night, and OMG, life in plastic, it’s FANTASTIC!
The film is pitch-perfect, and while I expected the big laughs and colorful eye candy and Ryan Gosling’s amazing Kenergy, I honestly didn’t expect all of the heart. Barbie‘s waters run deep, y’all.
Truly, there is nothing that can be improved about this movie… with the exception of a drinking game, obvs!!! So get all dolled up, then grab your pinkest cocktail, and come on Barbie, let’s go party!
