UglyDolls is a 2019 animated musical comedy film directed by Kelly Asbury. The film stars Kelly Clarkson, Janelle Monáe, Blake Shelton, Wanda Sykes, Gabriel Iglesias, Wang Leehom, Bebe Rexha, Charli XCX, Lizzo, Nick Jonas and Pitbull. The film was distributed by STX Entertainment and animated by Reel FX Creative Studios.

Plot

In the adorably different town of Uglyville, weirdness is celebrated, strangeness is special and beauty is embraced as more than meets the eye. After traveling to the other side of a mountain, Moxy and her UglyDoll friends discover Perfection -- a town where more conventional dolls receive training before entering the real world to find the love of a child. Soon, the UglyDolls learn what it means to be different -- ultimately realizing that they don't have to be perfect to be amazing.

Why It Sucks

  1. Much like The Emoji Movie, the film is a complete cash-grab and was only made just to advertise the UglyDolls plushes. It's basically a commercial disguised as a movie.
    • It is also similar to films like The Angry Birds MovieGMW in the aspect of it being based on something that isn't very popular these days, although The Angry Birds Movie was executed well.
  2. It was released at a time of multiple large-scale film releases such as Avengers: EndgameGMW and Pokémon Detective PikachuGMW, which didn't help the box office numbers.
  3. The movie spent nine years in production and the plot ends up being predictable and formulaic, as it is about multiple characters trying to fit in with the other superior characters, but eventually, they accept themselves for who they are, which has already been done several times in other movies, like WonderGMW, Maya the Bee: The Movie, Bratz and The Emoji Movie.
  4. Failed attempts at comedy, with the biggest offenders being the Gibberish Cat and the line "I'm an individual, just like all of you".
    • The Gibberish Cat also appears multiple times throughout the movie, with the same animation and voice line.
  5. Certain characters just come off as incredibly annoying.
    • Moxy is annoying and uninteresting, as she is over confident, has extreme curiosity and has the ability to make others feel great.
    • Lou is a stereotypical leader who is obsessed with fashion and praising people because of their looks, which makes him a generic antagonist.
  6. Some plot holes, such as how Moxy knows about the big world without indicating a scene showing how she began her belief.
  7. The perfect dolls look like prep school students, when in reality they are actually adults. Also, they look way too human to be convincing dolls.
  8. Pointless pop culture references, such as the film pausing to shove in an Oliver Twist reference.
  9. The UglyDolls and Perfect Dolls aren't even all that unique. All of the character groups look exactly the same.
  10. Misleading title: The designs for the UglyDolls are really not that ugly at all, as they've been cutesified to appeal towards kids.
  11. The camera, which scans on Moxy, randomly says "Tell my family I love them..." before breaking.
  12. There is a scene in which the Ice Bat is sinking in with the boat, indicating that he tries to attempt suicide, but luckily survives, which is inappropriate for a kids film.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The animation is actually good and way better than expected, especially since it was made by the studio Reel FX Animation Studios the same company who also made the animation in Free Birds, The Book Of LifeGMW and Rock Dog.
  2. The ending isn't too bad.
  3. Decent voice acting.
  4. Some funny moments here and there.

Reception

UglyDolls ended up receiving generally negative reviews from critics, as well as receiving mixed reviews from audiences. It currently holds a 27% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes as well as a 57% audience score, with its critical consensus saying, "Very young viewers may be entertained by UglyDolls, if only because they're less likely to recognize the many familiar elements in its affirmative yet formulaic story." It holds a 4.8 on IMDb, as well as a 39 on Metacritic, indicating "generally unfavorable reviews." Many have found it to be "cliched and blandly animated", while others have found it to be a ripoff of many other films, notably TrollsGMW and Toy StoryGMW. The film flopped at the box office, with only $32 million being grossed over its $45-53 million budget; some believe that this was because it released at the time Avengers: Endgame and Pokémon Detective Pikachu were still in theaters.

The villain in this movie, Lou, reminds me a lot of Smiler from The Emoji Movie. Notice how they are both power-hungry perfectionist tyrants obsessed with keeping their world perfect even going as far as to eliminate any being who has flaws. Lou tried to get the UglyDolls trashed because they don't have the ideal doll appearance, and Smiler tried to delete Gene because he's not supposed to have expressions other than "meh". Also, similar animation styles. The difference is Lou only toyed with the UglyDolls (pun intended) before deciding to get rid of them whereas Smiler is an actual psychopath who wanted to destroy Gene as soon as she heard the mention of a flaw.

Lou also reminds me of White Diamond from Steven Universe because she also had a gripe with flawed beings and has an obsession with "perfect" gems, not realizing that she had a flaw herself, getting put down by someone's love rather than force. Only difference is White Diamond reformed and Lou just got punished.

I like how Lou turned out to be a prototype of an ideal perfect doll rather than an actual perfect doll. His discriminatory nature towards flawed dolls makes a little more sense that way.

Let me know if I got something wrong.

Uglydoll is a brand based upon a series of plush toys, created by Sun-Min Kim. Sun-Min created the first Uglydoll and came up with the name “Uglydoll”. The toy line and brand began as an idea from a long-distance letter between the creators David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim. The Uglydoll line was launched in February 2001 and awarded the Specialty Toy of the Year award by the Toy Industry Association in 2006.[1][2] The popularity of the toys has led to numerous appearances in pop culture. Over the years, many different named characters have been created.
