    • Rain Dawnson
      Rain Dawnson Před 3 měsíci +58

      Honestly I don't think it is. She seems to, in the brief moments that we see, genuinely enjoy learning about science. Sure, we can say that's just because Julian is her teacher but ngl it's hard to fake love for science lol I think it's something that she's genuinely interested in and having Julian as the one person who supports her in having those passions is what brings them closer together, rather than her liking the subject just because she likes him.

    To give a little context to the "just like me" serenade between the two of them- they recognize the chasm of privilege between them, but the bridge that binds them together is being unhappy in the life that they are in and wanting freedom from it but still choosing to do the right thing. That's what Erica was meaning when she said I am a girl like you.

    • Sparkling Lemon
      Sparkling Lemon Před 4 měsíci +53

      Thank you for putting that so eloquently. The number one complaint I hear about this movie is that people don't understand the song I Am A Girl Like You. Yes the song starts with them comparing situations, but they also include how they feel about their situations. If you combine that with their conversation before the song (about the arranged marriage and servitude) and what they sang about in the previous song, Free, it makes sense that they are similar. They both have responsibilities that stand between them and their dreams and feel deeply about it.

    • Rain Dawnson
      Rain Dawnson Před 3 měsíci +16

      Thank you!! so many people completely miss the mark when they hear that song, I think it might be because they don't expect a Barbie movie to have so much depth so they don't consider things as deeply. They obviously know that they aren't the same due to their living circumstances, but they are the same in choosing responsibility over freedom/happiness. It brings them together because they understand each others' internal struggles despite coming from two very different backgrounds.

    In all honesty the old Barbie movies are better than the newer ones for me......like why is she suddenly becoming a super hero with supper powers from a butterfly??? classics like the 12 dancing princesses, mariposa and fairytopia are still the best for me🤧

    • S K
      S K Před 3 měsíci +13

      @plushkin Sure but I guess it's more about the way it is done. I think many people have the impression that they put more thought behind the magical powers of the old movies or just into the world building in general even if they were still rather simple.

    • Elli Chan
      Elli Chan Před 3 měsíci +5

      I agree 100%. I stopped actively watching new Barbie movies when "Pearl Princess" came out back in 2014 (I was 8 back then) and have watched every one before that and I gotta say the artstyle on the newer ones is so bad. I will always love and cherish the old Barbie movies. My kids are gonna watch them!! I dont care if theyre boys or girls theyre gonna give em a try.

    fun fact: i'm from Brazil, and here they translated The Princess Switch to "A Princesa e a Plebeia", which is also the exact brazilian title of this Barbie movie.

    This movie was my freaking childhood. My sister has the same name as the protagonist so it was special to her, we had the dolls, the carriage, Saraphina. It also told me that I prefer smart, devoted guys in Julian. I got a little defensive there for a second, as in Presenger (I don’t know how to spell his name) his plan was to frame Julian and Erika for the princess’s murder, which actually might’ve worked, the queen was very naive. But you also pointed out something I never noticed, which was the freaking SPIDER HORSE OH MY GOSH. And you killed me with the gene pool jokes 😂.
    I would love if you did more, this was awesome. Thanks, Alex!

    “So his plan is to pretend to save the princess so she falls in love with him, then he’ll bring him back to the palace and the queen would be great full” you’d think nobody would be suspicious if the advisor brought back the princess and not trained knights and detectives to do so.

    I remember watching this movie as a teenager when I would babysit. I've seen it again as an adult when I felt like watching something simple and silly. I love Preminger! He's so over the top ridiculous! If not for him, this movie would not be nearly as...good? Terrible? Whatever the case, he was incredible!
    Also, as far as I can remember from babysitting, I think a lot of those early Barbie movies were performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. I was always impressed by that even at a young age.

  • Kristian Flinn

    It really sucks that Mattel hits you with a copyright strike and CZcams won't do anything about it. This was a good and fun video too. Whatever happens, I guess this really means you won't be making anymore Barbie related videos any time soon.

      I have never watched any of these movies, but you are never too old to watch any movies. They are meant for entertainment and if they entertain you then they do their job. Entertainment is ageless!

    I hope Barbie: life in the dream house is part of this journey, it’s probably going to be the closest thing to the Barbie movie. Also, it’s probably the most iconic real Barbie piece of media (by that I mean Barbie as the actress/every woman like in the fashion show movie and the vlog Barbie)

      I grew up with these movies, especially this one but I find the designs of the villains terrifying. But I’ve like not seen a kids movie without the blatantly scary design of villains, otherwise they’d not get who is the villain (other than frozen, which Elsa is kinda the misunderstood villain and hans is the real villain, they look human to say the least)

    I grew up on the 2nd generation of Barbie. (2009-2015) I love those movies the most. I've tried watching the oldest and the newer generations, but the writing from those eras doesn't seem to stick out to me. The music is usually pretty solid, but the 2nd generation of barbie is by far the most entertaining imo. Princess charm school and Mermaid Tale are my personal favorites!

    I can't... Every time I watch an Alex Meyer video of a movie I know, I already know I will end up laughing my ass off, even though I never did that before while watching it alone. He just points out these hilarious things that I never noticed before, to the point where I am starting to notice them myself now in new things, or remember them while watching something he reacted to. 😂😂😂

    I have watched this video on repeat - especially the "sleep paralysis demon" parts and Preminger's shriek - but my favorite parts are when you talk about the economy. I am writing a story (currently though maladaptive daydreams), and at one point a character ascends to the throne, but her country's economy is in shambles. Your solution to the queen's problems in this movie made me have to pause the video to happy-stim and ramble about how this is basically what my character plans to do to get her country back on track. Love your videos!

    I remember dressing up as the pauper from the Barbie movie when I was in elementary school. My grandma sewed me a custom dress. And I’m not sure anyone really knew who I was and therefore always assumed that no one really knew what princess and the pauper was. But now I keep seeing CZcams videos about it.

  • Madison Autumn

    I know you didn’t include it in the video but the scene where Annalise comes back to where Erica works because the castle guards won’t let her inside makes me laugh so hard because Madam Carp physically cannot tell the difference between the girl she’s thrown in debt for years and basically raised, and the princess 😭✋🏻 like why didn’t she just show her the birthmark tattoo??

    It probably won't happen, but I hope you get around to "Barbie: Video Game Hero" (2017), partly because of it's "Tron-EXTREMELY-lite" main story and partly because it makes game development look way easier than it actually is. But according to Wikipedia, there are 30 moves between that and "Princess and the Pauper", and the human mind can only take so much.

    Yeah, this is why I never liked this Barbie movie in particular (I liked the others especially Swan Lake and the Magic of the Pegasus) because I grew up poor as a kid and I understood Erica's struggle at an early age, and their duet together showed how lucky Annalise was. Also the economy system in their kingdom never made sense to me even back then at all, since I also played a lot of tycoon games in my dad's phone back then 😂
