Barbie fans are complaining about a line that’s being branded the “worst” in the film.
The blockbuster, which is about to make $1bn at the world field workplace this week, was launched earlier this month to acclaim from critics and audiences. The Impartial gave the film 5 stars, calling it “a near-miraculous achievement”.
Director Greta Gerwig co-wrote the film along with her husband, director Noah Baumbach, with producer Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling enjoying the lead roles.
The film has many laugh-out-loud moments, lots of which contain Gosling’s efficiency as Ken, however one joke involving Barbie left a nasty style in the mouths of many viewers members.
It arrives when Barbie is having an existential disaster upon her return to Barbieland, the place she discovers it’s been taken over by the Kens.
Whereas at the home of “bizarre” Barbie (Kate McKinnon), she emotionally tells human charcater Gloria (America Ferrera): “I’m not fairly anymore. I’m not ‘stereotypical Barbie’ fairly.”
Right here, the narrator (Helen Mirren) could be heard saying: “Notice to the filmmakers: Margot Robbie is the mistaken individual to solid if you wish to make this level.”
It appears this joke did not impress many, who in any other case loved the film, however are expressing their frustrations with the quip on social media. They’re making their views recognized following a response to a submit by @PopBase, asking: “What was your favorite a part of #Barbie?”, in which one fan namechecked this narration highlighting Robbie’s seems.
“I really hated that and it made the scene much less impactful to me,” one individual wrote in disagreement, with one other including: “Actually THE worst second in the film. horrifically unfunny and pathetically self-apologetic. self-awareness doesn’t make the alternative any higher.”
An extra viewer waded in: “This was the solely a part of the film I’d have modified really. Simply because somebody is attractive doesn’t imply they will’t FEEL unpretty.”
Nevertheless, some argued that the scene was efficient as Mirren’s narration was the exact thought that got here into their head simply earlier than the line was spoken.
“It was actually excellent as a result of that’s EXACTLY what I used to be telling myself,” one individual replied, calling it “genius”.
Barbie is in cinemas now.
