Movie Info

In the adorably different town of Uglyville, weird is celebrated, strange is special and beauty is embraced as more than simply meets the eye. Here, the free-spirited Moxy (Clarkson) and her UglyDoll friends live every day in a whirlwind of bliss, letting their freak flags fly in a celebration of life and its endless possibilities. In this all-new story, the UglyDolls will go on a journey beyond the comfortable borders of Uglyville. There, they will confront what it means to be different, struggle with their desire to be loved, and ultimately discover that you don't have to be perfect to be amazing because who you truly are is what matters most.

  • It's all pretty derivative but also pretty wacky, and there's meaning, if you look for it, on a whole lot of levels, from Freudian imagery and hints of religious allegory to the satire of reality TV.

  • Positive messaging about celebrating our unique imperfections and seeking your own truth has never felt more urgent to children in the age of Instagram. Pity, then, that this toothless and derivative marketing exercise doesn't practise what it preaches.

  • The songs are horrifically soppy.

  • For a film about weird, colorful dolls, one hopes for something wackier, funnier, edgier. But "UglyDolls" is so soft - literally, the felted textures are startlingly realistic - and tame, that it feels like watching those PBS cartoons aimed at toddlers.

  • UglyDolls is less a movie than an infomercial for the plush Hasbro toys.

  • For a movie about supposed ugliness, "UglyDolls" works overtime to be pretty.
