Barbie has it all... but she doesn't have a movie. Until now. According to Deadline, Sony Pictures will be partnering with Mattel to bring the world's most famous doll to the big screen.

Deadline reports that the upcoming film, which will be a live-action comedy, will use Barbie's "personal and professional skills to step into the lives of others and improve them, almost like a modern-day Mary Poppins."

What do you have to say about a movie centered on Barbie? Is it a fun idea and something kids will love? Or will it totally fall flat?

    Barbie of all things? Why not Bratz, My Scene, or Polly Pocket? Why this overrated beauty queen? :p

    Movies like this would be great for seven or eight year old girls but not for anyone else.

    These 2 big companies will most likely invest a lot in this movie... At the very least it can't be worse than Spider-Man 3.

    I couldn't say one way or the other. I think the story here is "how desperate hollywood is to come up with material".

    Since Kenny doll doesn't have the tools to consummate an evening with Barbie, I think it will fall flat. Americans want instant gratification, either explicit sexual content or grossly vulgar dialogue, or blood, lots of blood. No, Barbie has none of that, so it is a bust.

    For kids , which it's aimed at. No offence but kids movies can be about anything and they will still enjoy it.

    That's ridiculous! Two movies have had live-action Barbie's in them and both did great at the Box Office, but store sales slumped in the first week:
    Small Soldiers


    Toy Story 3

    The videos of the animated Barbie series that I have seen were entertaining, but they weren't block-busters. Obviously, it will be a wait and see type of thing as to the results of this new project. I hope that it does turn out well.
