      Maddie O Kind of cringey, the only cool part was the masks. There was no violence 😢 Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/17/23 Full Review migguzi T would you believe it if I told you this movie is supposed to be based on a line of build-a-bear bears? you wouldn't know it unless someone told you because there are a total of 2 build a bears in this movie and they're only in the background. while one can appreciate that there isn't heavy advertising for the brand in the movie it has made me question what was the point of this movie. This movie is very light, fluffy, and aimed at preteens, and there's nothing wrong with that, however, the plot devices they use don't mesh well with what they're trying to say. having this be a competition while also not trying to talk down on the girls that get eliminated is a bit confusing. this could've been a fun satirical take on reality tv competitions but for the most part, the eliminations aren't really an elimination. there never really seems to be any stakes here for the girls other than their talents while also having the girls themselves come to terms with the limit of their talents and say out loud "I don't belong here. I'm going to go home. having Fancy G (ashanti) be the host of the competition was okay I guess but her character goes back and forth between being hard on the rules and letting them slide for some competitors. I mean they change the rules at the end of the movie because she reminisces about her time in a girl group while being totally against them throughout the movie. it never really feels like a fair competition in the long run. The honey girls themselves arent really set apart from the other girls in the competition if I'm being honest, they just happen to get along with each other the most. there isn't really a villain in the movie, except for the rules sometimes and their own embarrassment when Fancy G calls them out for not wanting to have a group win. also wondering what was the point of gathering them together if one of the projects was to take a photo or video to show their day in their life on social media. I also think it's wild to have them have a songwriting competition and expect these young girls to know how to write a hit off the bat with a very short lesson. some of the 3 girls don't even win the project of the week/day. the music in the movie is okay really nothing outstanding besides pop music and the use of music got old pretty quickly. there's a scene where we see the 3 girl bond for the first time and they turned it into a music montage instead of showing us how they work together. that could've been replaced with a little jam session. I guess these things could be easily ignored if you're a preteen. it's fine for a fantasy movie but for me, there's just too much that is left out for it to even seem remotely realistic and it's almost as if you're just going to make it a fantasy why even try to keep things grounded at this point? go all out, give us some wacky vr cgi bear thing instead. the build-a-bear honey girls are represented by masks that the 3 girls first find ceramic versions in a thrift shop and then later get plush versions made for them which look worse than the ceramic masks they were using, to begin with. this is by no means a cheetah girl movie and ironically enough feels more like a lazy cash grab than if they stuffed the movie with build-a-bears. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Not sure what we were expecting because we didn't know much about the movie. We were floored. The music rivals anything we've heard Disney do. The kids were singing the songs after one watch. Easy and fun with healthy lessons baked in.
