Top Ten Barbie Movies

The Top Ten

1 Barbie: Princess Charm School

This is actually the best barbie movie I had ever seen. I used to hate Barbie movies but I started liking them when I watched this.

Nah it's not really the best Barbie movie ever in my opinion, the modern Barbie movies are terrible, the classics are 10 times more interesting and cool. The Princess and the Pauper or Rapunzel should be number one. Why can't Mattel create more creative and not so sparkly and pinky colours movies?

I was in the bookstore and somehow a barbie picture book hit me. I had never been interested in barbie before, thinking it was way too girly. But this movie really changed me and it is really amazing

I’d go to that school - blackflower

2 Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses

This is definitely my FAVORITE barbie movie, I could watch it over and over!

To be honest any kind of barbie movie or even the show makes my heart just come right out of my chest. I had a bad life and I just started melting down but then I started watching and playing with barbie dolls and even bratz dolls so they just make me feel much better and also make me go to a different world. And one more thing this is my MOST favorite barbie movie I just love it so much.

I love it I could also watch it over and over again I also love it cause I love to do ballet

The music was amazing, there are very few barbie movies that uses instrumental music and acapella voice! Eventhough I do questionn why they get married so quickly but I mean it happens in every barbie movie, derek and geneive were absoulutly otp. t

4 Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper

Hands down best Barbie movie ever! It teaches everything starting from the hardships of being a princess and her duties for her kingdom, how poor people can dream, equality, live, friendship even in the hardest times, love (sisterly, animals, relationships), and about the importance and duties in a family. This has to be number one, and I rarely even like to pick favorites! I love the pairs as it is ironic at the same time valuable, your background doesn't determine your fate or love. And how you could change through someone who is always besides you. A princess can be smart, brave, witty, and know which spoon to use! A pauper can have talents that are priceless! Best movie ever!

Duty, love, responsibility, friendship and staying true to who you are. These are the lessons I learned from this movie when I was 7 years old. Now, at 19, these morals still ring true. Princess and the Pauper is a timeless Barbie classic (with the best soundtrack, may I add). I'm surprised this doesn't rank #1, especially because it influenced me more than any of the other Barbie movies combined. It's real, yet true. Cause I'm just a girl like you

This is a really good Barbie movie. It has beautiful songs and good characters. However, this movie can get a bit slow if you are over the age of 7 and are not a hardcore Barbie fan. Another downside is the animation is awful, but I can't really blame them for that. Overall, this is probably my fifth favorite Barbie movie and if you haven't seen it, it's worth the watch.

If I share my opinion I hate this barbie movie. I think princess and the popstar is better by faar. I think among tori,keira,anneliese,Erica,most beautiful should be KEIRA.keira looks beautiful in each and every scene.

5 Barbie & The Diamond Castle

Before my friend and I got separated, this is our favorite barbie movie and is the reason why we became friends. Now that we are in college, we may have separated but this is will always be our connection.

This is the most fabulous movie and I love there dresses and there songs it's the best I promise if you haven't watched it you should it very cool

This Barbie movie has an amazing plot, great songs, great characters, and beautiful music. It is my 2nd favorite Barbie movie (my favorite is Swan lake) and though some Barbie movies are really slow and hard to rewatch unless you are like 3, this one is awesome.

Simply the best

6 Barbie: The Princess & The Popstar

This in my opinion was not a great movie. It sort of ripped off Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper which is one of my favorites. They even used the song To Be a Princess but changed it a little, still the tune was the same. I just think they are running out of ideas.

I absolutely hated this movie. Not only does it rip off an excellent previous movie, but it offers such confusing plot points that, even as a kid, bothered me. For instance, those brushes that change hair: they just come out of nowhere. They have magic in this world? Where did they get them? Why couldn't they just use wigs? Oh whatever. Kids, this movie is a punishment. Watch something else.

This is my favorite one. Why isn't it number 1? The songs rocked, the characters rocked and the action just rocked!

In my opinion best barbie movie ever. Kids I recommend this barbie movie as seeing how true friends can save the day.I love the popstar very very much. Keira is cool and Tori is sweet.

7 Barbie in A Mermaid Tale

In my opinion I wouldn't put any of the recent Barbie movies in my top 10, I would put Barbie in a Nutcracker, Barbie as Rapunzel, Barbie of Swan Lake, Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper and Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus well because they are the only ones I enjoyed

I have watched this movie many times and each time I watch, I enjoy it more. I don't think any recent Barbie movies are as good as these..I love Barbie and the Christmas Carol, Barbie diaries, Barbie and the Diamond Castle, Fashion Fairytale, Fairy Secret, Island Princess, Princess Charm School etc but my most favourite is Barbie in a mermaid tale. I love its sequel too and wish, if another sequel comes too. I love the story and songs (summer favourite) and I love the character of Merliah Summers especially in Mermaid Tale 2. - MerliahSummers

I love this because it remembers me of 2011/2012 because that was great years with Hannah Montana series, Best Summer... And of course fantastic movie

I actually saw this one so I'll vote for it

8 The Barbie Diaries

Love the drama in this movie! They should make another barbie movie like this, but instead of barbie, it should be skipper and the animation should more modern. A little bored of the princess stuff, they need more juicy but kid friendly movies like this one.

This movie is awful. I give them credit for trying to appeal to teens, but this movie is so cringey and basically talks about bullying and stuff like that. I appreciate the message and what they were going for, but it just didn't really work out.

This isn't my least favorite Barbie movie, but it is by far not my favorite. The classics like Princess and the Pauper and 12 Dancing Princesses are way better in my opinion.

The animation is awful but the story is decent

9 Barbie In the Pink Shoes

Why is this movie ranked so high? I didn't like it one bit...and that's coming from someone who usually loves Barbie.

I loved this movie! The ballet I enjoyed, I loved the message, and the fact that they had the Snow Queen was awesome!

Barbie's legs broke and she had to go to hospital, so no one wore the Pink Shoes. The End. - TwilightKitsune

Really enjoyed this Barbie movie the songs are great with a fantastic storyline

10 Barbie: The Pearl Princess

It's alright pretty boring

The best movie I have ever seen

This the best Barbie movie I have seen and it’s a mermaid Barbie movie too and I love mermaid movies - Gamingwithash

The Contenders

11 Barbie: A Fairy Secret

I've watched this movie multiple times and I just love it! I'm 12 and I still watch barbie movies occasionally because they remind me so much of my childhood. The stories are fantastic, especially this one!

I've watched it multiple times and this movie is the best movie ever seen in Barbie History! I think this movie should come #1! I am like 10 now and I still watch them because they are such great movies

I love this movie! Especially the little accessories and outfits. The name of the store in that fairy place is cute too, Wings N' Things!

This my favorite movie ever. I don't get why it's so low. It should be in the top 10.

12 Barbie In a Mermaid Tale 2

Loved the first one and this one! but I think this one was better because there were more characters and a better storyline

Fantastic movie

Love this and the first one hope will be there the third one...hope so much... - skyes

13 Barbie as The Island Princess

Love the music. SO BEAUTIFUL! WHY IN THE WORLD IS THIS RATED SO LOW? Well... to be fair, I mostly like it for nostalgia...

By far the best movie. Dramatic, a bit sad, a beautiful end, good looking characters, great songs and probably the most beautiful and exotic dress in Barbie history. Plus there are animals which makes it all more interesting. And the villain is also really hateable. This is a piece of art and should be placed a lot higher in my opinion

This was one of the best movies ever I don't care what anyone else thinks

14 Barbie and the Three Muskeeters

As a kid, I loved this movie so much! I had to buy it on blu ray twice because I watched it almost every day! This is definitely my second favorite Barbie movie. It teaches great life lessons, and doesn't have the cliche ending like half the movie series where the girl and the guy get married. She puts love second and her career and dreams before the guy.

This film is a really girl-empowering, inspirational fun watch! I can believe it is so far down! This film teaches young kids (and adults) that although others may not always believe in you first, you can prove them wrong and achieve your dreams! You CAN do ANYTHING!

This film is honestly my guilty pleasure. It actually has some good lessons to teach young girls and is very entertaining.

15 Barbie as Rapunzel

This has always been one of my favorite Barbie movies. I'm surprised at how far down on the list it is. People are voting for all the newer movies which are trash in comparison to the old ones.

Why isn't this is the top 10? I love this movie! The old Barbie movies remain my favourites and should be in the top 10, this includes Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper, Barbie of Swan Lake, Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus and Barbie and the Nutcracker

This was the first barbie movie I watched and it was great because I had never seen such a thing when I watched it. I guess now because lots of newer movies have come out it isn't as popular anymore but when it was released I think it was worth watching.

I actually own copies of this, Swan Lake, and The Island Princess on DVD. I also own a copy of the Junior Novelization of The Princess and the Pauper. - PerfectImpulseX

16 Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus

10/10 honestly. Why is this rates so low I am shook

For some reason I always loved it because all of Barbie's outfits were purple and not always hot pink. Also the music was very soothing.

I love this movie! I used to watch it all the time when I was little.

Best original

17 Barbie of Swan Lake

Ever since I was a young kid, I've always thought that swan lake was one of the best movies, songs and dances. I loved the movie, but just like a lot of other one's I think it was popular for a while until newer and better movies came out

I'm shocked this movie is ranked so far down! This movie was my childhood along with princess and the pauper, nutcracker, rapunzel, etc... you know? I was never intrested in the new modern barbie movies... their just not my cup of tea and never will be. Guys stay true to the classics!

In my version Barbie goes into the Swan Lake, but GUESS WHAT, it turns out to be acid and Barbie drowns in it. - TwilightKitsune

Why is this in the top 20 spots I re-watched this recently and literally the only things that happen are
1) the beginning when Barbie is introducing the story through the constellations
2)The beginning of the actual story, where characters are introduced, things are established and Oddette turns into a swan
3)The end where the villains get turned into animals or something I can’t exactly remember
Like. Literally NOTHING happens. This is the kind of movie you’d put on just to distract your 4 year old for an hour and so.

18 Barbie: Spy Squad

I think who ever didn't make this movie one of the top ten I think they are dumb and don't have any sense in them they must be 100 percent weird! I love this movie out of hundred I would give it 120

I loved every second of this movie! The story is just amazing, the kind of romance is so adorable and the way they overcome their hardships is fancy to watch. I love this movie.

I am just speechless I love this movie it was fun to watch I learnt 1 thing from it which is "see it, then be it

I like this movie a lot but I don't think it's the best. In my opinion I think is Barbie charm school but all Barbie movies are over all great

19 Barbie: Star Light Adventure

My favourite movie I am a shooting star song is best in this movie I love this

This is my favourite movie ever, even though I might be too old for Barbie now, it is unique in every way, it's even better than Harry Potter!

The animation quality was far higher and it showed a more well-rounded version of Barbie.

Wait? Didn't the Cinema Snob review this movie in one episode of his Midnight Screenings series? - PerfectImpulseX

20 Barbie In a Christmas Carol

This is a great adaptation of Charles Dickens' novel. - ToukaKirishima

This is my favourite one so far. I just realised how much I am like Eden. Even though I don't like Christmas at least it teaches you some good lessons.

*writes "Barbie in a Christmas Carol" on Death Note* - TwilightKitsune

My favorite out of all barbie, in fact, the best.

21 Barbie in the Nutcracker

This movie IS my childhood! It was my all time favorite Christmas movie as a little girl! In fact, I still enjoy watching it! From Tim Curry as the Mouse King to Tchaikovsky's beautiful music - the first CGI Barbie film is without a doubt the best in my mind.

This Barbie movie isn't great, but it should be higher up. Children today would find it dull however, but if your child is very young and hasn't been exposed to very many modern things yet, this movie is great for them and old time fans of Barbie.

What? This is way better than Barbie in a fashion fairy tale. I hate that movie, Barbie became more bratty and he looks like an alien

To this day, the nutcracker is one of my favourite male fictional characters

22 Barbie Fairytopia: Mermaidia

I watched this 20 times! Why is this so underrated? The music, colors, everything is so soothing. And the story is very amazing. I can't believe you guys put the cancerous barbie movies above this: Spy Squad and Starlight adventure were so boring and cliche.

This movie is really memorable and has strong characters (such as Nori), I highly recommend this

This movie started my likings for Barbie movies! Number 1 because it is funny and an adventure!

Amazing... my child hood

24 Barbie & Her Sisters in the Great Puppy Adventure

No offense, but How could you like this garbage? - TwilightKitsune

It's a really great movie and I wonder if there are really treasures in the world! So curious!

It not that good movie and the story is just kiddish but I love the puppies they are so very cute honey,the puppy is the most cutest among the puppies. The girls don't have sense at all. They don't know anything!

Corndogs and cupcake puppies, its one of my favourites.

25 Barbie Fairytopia: Magic of the Rainbow

This literally came on Tree-House everyday and this is why I love it so much!

One of my favorites.

Outstanding film should be in rank 1

27 Barbie And The Secret Door

This movie is horrible the villain made me want to break the T.V.

The villain and her song are a disgrace to all the other good Barbie movies.

Not much action but it really it does give the feel of magic!

It is best Barbie movie before watching this I was wondering why all girls like barbie.after watching this I was one of them.

28 Barbie Fairytopia

This was my childhood! It was my favorite Barbie movie for the longest time.

So nostalgic and great

Best ever. U don't even knoe

I love the world the film creates... it really is an awesome movie.

29 Barbie As Thumbelina

I watched this a long time after it was released and I did think I wasn't the best but it was cute!

One of my childhood movies! Should be higher up the list.

This movie is so tedious and dull, and has hideous animation. One of the worst Barbie movies ever.

Blech. I worry about this tarnishing the reputation of Don Bluth's 1994 theatric masterpiece

33 Barbie: A Perfect Christmas

This movie is my favourite I don't know why it's number 34 I really like Stacey

I thought this movie was very warm because it represents love and happiness. I liked all the different personalities. this would be a great movie to just cuddle up in bed and watch!

Hate this movie! Like really it also has the least number

34 Barbie & Her Sisters in a Pony Tale

I loved the movie especially since I am a horse rider. It shows how to get off electronics and go outside, also how to care for family and friends, and lastly how to try your best.

This movie rules! Barbie teaches us a very important lesson in this story: we all have feelings, even animals.

Never heard of it.

This movie was super cool and fantastic. barbie was brave and loving girl shown in this movie.

35 Barbie In Princess Power

I didn't like her face though

It's fabulous movie.

This movie rocks

36 Barbie In Rock 'N Royals

It's a modernized version of the movie "Princess and the Pop-star" which was a modernized version of "Princess and the Pauper"... Not original but ya know...

A message to Barbie: You'll never be Led Zeppelin, so just stop - Scr3aM

This movie was about friendship and honesty. I really love it

37 Barbie & Her Sisters in the Great Puppy Adventure

Love it the pups were adorable and it shows how siblings should actually care for each other.

Its amazing great. I want to see million times more

What even is this?


38 Barbie and the Rockers: Out of This World (1987)

Come on these are the earliest ones.

39 Barbie Mariposa And The Fairy Princess

I loved the first movie but the fact that they changed some of the main voice actors and worst yet, the art style... It's still a good movie but it's so different from the first, it shouldn't have been a sequel of Mariposa.

I didn't like mariposa much but I still watched the second movie and looking back it actually wasn't that bad. It definitely is an original movie and has a good sense of humour

This movie is really funny and the story is great!

They tried in this one but not much. I will give 5/10

40 Barbie and Her Sisters in the Great Puppy Adventure
41 Barbie and Her Sisters in a Pony Tale

Great for young horse-lovers! Timeless and enchanting, any child will love this.

Very predictable

love it

42 Barbie Mariposa & the Fairy Princess

Loved it great plot line and just loved

43 Barbie: Video Game Hero

I like this move a lot and love the story of the move and the way it's so all about teamwork
and the the people in the move looks cool and good. I love this move and think every one will like it.and I love this move a lot and a lot and a it every much and much,

44 Barbie: Dolphin Magic

I have watched this movie at least 50 times with my daughters. Good songs, and better animation then some other modern Barbie movies. Plus who doesn't love dolphins and mermaids!
