The “Barbie” movie has evoked a myriad of reactions from audiences worldwide.

The film has not left anyone indifferent, from sheer joy to solid criticisms.

Interestingly, many men have watched the movie, either with their families or alone.

While the film was primarily marketed toward women, seeing how many men genuinely appreciated it is heartening. One father’s review, in particular, stands out.

Conor O’Brien shared his father’s review of the movie, which he sent in a group text to his family.

His father’s words were so powerful that Conor felt compelled to share them with the world. “I think Barbie is going to change the world,” wrote Conor’s father.

He further added, “We will think of life as BB/AB, Before Barbie/After Barbie. I can’t stop thinking about it.”

More Than Just a Doll

The father didn’t stop at just praising the movie. He compared Barbie to iconic superheroes, stating she is “more powerful than Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, etc.”

He emphasized that, unlike other superheroes, Barbie is a well-rounded character. She possesses qualities like “EQ, thoughts, senses, feelings, intellect, courage, confidence, and love.”

He even ranked the “Barbie” movie in his top five films, highlighting its ability to challenge societal norms and address the “pink patriarchy.”

He applauded the film for taking on classics like “The Godfather” and changing the narrative around movies that men often need to explain to women.

A Cultural Phenomenon

The father’s review focused on more than just the film’s content.

He drew parallels between the movie’s significance and pivotal historical moments, such as JFK being the first Catholic president and Obama being the first Black president.

While this comparison might seem exaggerated to some, it underscores his belief in the movie’s potential to bring about societal change.

He concluded his review with a poetic touch, saying, “All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Barbie back in her box again.” This line encapsulates the essence of the movie – challenging stereotypes and breaking barriers.
