Fun undersea adventure oddly paired with lots of shopping.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the materialistic vibe of this movie is pretty over the top. Oceana is populated with girls who shop all day and act ditzy. On the other hand, there's no prince in this Barbie movie -- the girls save the day all on their own. Violence is pretty mild with some underwater chase scenes and an evil ruler who captures people in whirlpools.
