Bratty ratatouille

ON CIRCUIT: Colour-blind drag queens and a rat who thinks he can cook.

Bratz: The Movie

The big-headed glamour dolls finally make it to the big screen. Those expecting a touching drama of young ladies trying to overcome the difficulties of having a massively enlarged cranium will come away disappointed. The four leads, playing younger than their real ages and dressed like colour-blind drag queens, struggle to replicate their plastic precursors’ range of expression and deliver their lines as if they’ve never heard English spoken aloud before. — Phelim O’Neill Â
