** There's also the fact that he's the godfather of Cloe's actress [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skyler_Shaye Skyler Shaye]].


* OlderThanTheDemographic: Controversially so. The toys feature arguably sexualized teens but are aimed at preteens. It's been critisized for being age-inappropriate. As a result, the characters were eventually retooled to dress more conservatively and put more emphasis on the BeYourself aesop rather than the fashion and partying.

* UncannyValley: The character designs are based off of the dolls, and come out looking quite disturbing (even for 2005-ish).

disturbing.



* AudienceAlienatingPremise: An InNameOnly LiveActionAdaptation of a doll line that was losing popularity at the time, with pretty much ''every'' single [[ClicheStorm high school teen movie cliche that you can think of]].

* {{Narm}}: The song ''My Life'' by the ''Slumber Party Girls'' from the soundtrack is a rock song about it being the singerís life and doing whatever she wants... [[RuleAbidingRebel like going to school and learning stuff she really cares about]].

* SoBadItsGood: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-TMhRdNTzM This new 2010 song]] is like listening to a train crash in slow motion with teenybopper lyrics.

** The 2015 reboot of the dolls had hashtags and selfies as a theme. Even former hardcore fans of the franchise didn't think it's going to last. (And it didn't.)

** The same book has Cloe (Working in a cosmetics shop) mix and match make up of different sorts without her boss' permission. When her boss finds out and fires her, he's treated as the villain.

* FollowTheLeader:
** Started out as a FollowTheLeader to {{Franchise/Barbie}}, but soon became more popular. That didn't last.
** ''Bratzillaz'' is trying its best to cash in on ''Monster High'', trying so hard they're copying even the marketing. Judging by the low view counts of the webisodes though, it's not exactly edging in on ''MH'' quite yet...


* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: "Rainy Day" is actually a pretty good song. Shame it ended up attached to this movie.

* NationalStereotypes: Mexicans have mariachi bands living with them. ''[[TheMovie Bratz: The Movie]]'' said so. And that's just the beginning.

Added DiffLines:

** The toyline itself is often held up as everything wrong with dolls in the early-to-mid 2000's.


* FairForItsDay: Back when the franchise was still huge, it was actually somewhat praised for its large cast of diverse (at least on the surface) characters.

* FandomRivalry: ''Bratz'' versus ''Franchise/{{Barbie}}'' and ''Bratzillaz'' versus ''Toys/MonsterHigh''. Now that the latter has a [[Franchise/EverAfterHigh fairy tale spinoff]], woe betide those on the MGA side of the war should they make their own...
