Editorial Reviews

Barbie stars as Blair Willows, a kind-hearted girl who is chosen to attend Princess Charm School, a magical, modern place that teaches dancing, how to have tea parties and proper princess manners. Blair loves her classes, as well as the helpful magical spirits and her new friends, Princesses Hadley and Delancy. But when royal teacher Dame Devin discovers that Blair looks a lot like the kingdom's missing princess, she turns Blair's world upside down to stop her from claiming the throne. Now, Blair, Hadley and Delancy must find an enchanted crown to prove Blair's true identity in this charming and magic princess story.

4.0 out of 5 stars There is hope! September 12, 2011
Format:DVD
After increasingly disappointing installments in the Barbie movies line (they had been going down since Mermaid Tale) Barbie has given us a glimmer of light. Princess Charm School (originally dubbed "Princess Prep School" but later changed to the more toddler-friendly "Charm") brings back so many of the wonderful, whimsical elements we've grown to love about Barbie. Blair is not a movie star, uber trendy and loaded with cash & fashion. She is not an overly preppy teen whose biggest flaw is that her dress isn't up-to-date. She is a very down-to-earth girl who works hard to keep her family afloat. She has problems that, with the help of a very likeable character, she works through.

Friendship, forgiveness, kindness, family bond, never giving up, discovering your own talents, and overcoming your own obstacles are all celebrated. The animation (Barbie's face in particular) shows great improvement. For the first time since the Three Musketeers, our heroine doesn't look like an alien Bratz doll with bug eyes and a pointy chin! And the ridiculous Sequin has been traded in for Prince, a cute golden retriever. Alexandria Privet is an excellent character, exhibiting confidence and good manners. She is ladylike and kind-- something you don't often see anymore. Blair, too, is humble and sweet. Towards the end, she begins to show a bit of an "attitude" and has the mindset that "the crown is mine, I DESERVE IT" which is a bit concerning, but she seems to be still worried about her family.

There are really no bad elements in the movie; the disappointments come more in opinion matters. I miss Kelly Sheridan's voice terribly...

4.0 out of 5 stars Barbie Movies are getting better September 11, 2011
Format:DVD
After a rough patch of less than stellar animation and storytelling (diamond castle, fairy secret), Princess Charm School looks to have been given better production values. My 8 year old says this is definitely her favorite of the Barbie movies so far (though she misses the movies with songs a lot).

The story theme is simple: every girl has the potential to be a princess. Blair, an ordinary waitress at a pastry shop in a thinly disguised inner city NY type of location, wins a yearly lottery to attend a prestigious "Princess Academy". There, she deals with rivalry and class difficulties while befriending fellow 'outcasts' in her dorm. Her main rival, Delancy, and Delancy's mother provide the strife and adversity for Blair as she tries to fit in. The girls learn that there is a long lost princess and Blair fits the description - but she can claim the title only if she can beat Delancy and her avaricious mother to the throne on coronation day.

Unlike previous Barbie DVDs, the characters are unique to the story and do not look recycled from previous DVDs. Also, it was nice to see that the main rival, Delancy's mother, was not a red head (though she wore the typical green color of all of the villains in Barbie movies). And as with Princess Luciana in Island Princess, Barbie will win over the heart of Delancy and foil Delancy's mother's plans to steal the throne of the country.

The characters do resemble their dolls more - though the side characters still have little to do in the movie other than exist as a reason to be a doll. But the animation of the characters is greatly improved - the 3d animation is less distracting and 'unreal' than in previous DVDs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for the sensitive child September 16, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My five year old daughter is particular about what she watches. Of the previous Barbie movies, she only liked the Mermaid movie and Fashion Fairy Tale. The last Barbie movie, the one where there were fairies did not appeal to her, but it had nothing to scare her. This new movie, Charm School, starts out pleasant, but when Blair gets home from work, and we discover her mother is sickly, and needs care, my daughter got concerned. And then when Blair actually leaves her sick mother and her younger sister to go to a school where she must live, she got upset. My daughter is dealing with going to kindergarten and being separated from me for the first time, so I think this hit too close to her current personal experiences. Then when Blair gets to the charm school, she isn't treated kindly by most of the other girls, and again, this upset my daughter. The "villain" of the show is a mother who wants her daughter to become the princess, and she is very unkind to Blair, says and does mean things, and by this point, my daughter wanted it turned off she we never finished it. As a grown-up, this movie seems to have potential, but if you have an easily upset child, especially one who doesn't want to watch anything mean, unkind or sad, this isn't for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the better recent Barbie movies September 16, 2011
Format:DVD
My daughters like all the Barbie movies, and this one is no different. It is pretty cute. The animations has greatly improved too. I'll just echo some previous reviewers; it is nice that the villianess isn't a redhead in dark green (what is that all about?), yea for no annoying talking animals, the funny sidekick is actually pretty funny, Barbie's new voice is growing on me, the story is kind of weak but enjoyable enough. Oh, and my three-year-old loves the short feature with the sisters camping, so I'm sure she'll be wanting the Christmas movie with them.
