    ★★★★★

    I am very saddened and disappointed by the negative response this has gotten from people I respect or consider friends on Letterboxd. Like, what’s going on guys? Are you ok? It’s not even a lot of people because most haven’t seen this, but I just hate when it’s hard to find fair reviews of movies like this. And by “like this”, I mean masterpieces. Bratz is hilarious, strange, bright, sweet, unique, and full of energy. It tells a great story…

    I saw this as a cynical, shitty teenager, and hated it. Even before revisiting it, I was deeply ashamed of this fact because I knew in my heart I was wrong.
