Having the kids home for summer means I have to find lots of different ways to keep them entertained. Movies are a great way to keep them entertained and for us to spend time together as a family. We’ve added in some family movie nights in our summer schedule and it’s been great for us as a family to enjoy the time together. Since my older kids are spending more time on their own doing their own thing. Thanks to Universal Studios we got an advanced copy of UglyDolls Sing-Along Edition to review and it was perfect for one of our family movie nights.
Centered around the adorably unique town of Uglyville, the film follows Moxy and her friends as they confront what it means to be different and discover that you don’t have to be perfect to be amazing. Inspired by the global plush phenomenon and based on the UglyDoll characters created by David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim, UglyDolls is filled with colorful and adorable characters and packed with powerful messages of inclusion and empowerment.
Featuring a star-studded voice cast including Kelly Clarkson (The Star, “The Voice”), Nick Jonas (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Janelle Monáe (Hidden Figures, Rio 2), Blake Shelton (The Angry Birds Movie, “The Voice”), Pitbull (“Empire,” Epic), Wanda Sykes (“Black-ish,” Bad Moms) and Gabriel Iglesias (Ferdinand), the humorous and heartwarming film comes home with vibrant bonus content such as featurettes that reveal how the talented cast brought their characters to life, hilarious games with the cast and a sneak peek of the exclusive sing-along edition’s interactive entertainment.
UglyDolls is a fun summer movie with lots of great messages for kids, especially older kids. I love the undertones of promoting knowing your own self-worth and not striving for perfection because no one is perfect. With a child with special needs, we are always reminding our kids about being accepting of people and being kind individuals. It’s easy for people to look at someone that is different from them and make assumptions about them without getting to really know the person.
It was a great conversation starter for us to have another conversation with our kids about kindness with the new school year starting soon. The music was another outstanding portion of this film. There are some great voices connected to this film and it was great to sing-along to the songs and laugh and have fun as well. UglyDolls is one of those movies your kids will enjoy over and over again.
