My Scene Goes Hollywood is a Barbie direct-to-DVD movie which as based on the My Scene sub-playline. It was the third and final animated production in the franchise, and the only one that was full-length.
Barbienote , Madison, Chelsea and Nolee are four New York highschoolers. During their summer vacation they're visited by Delancey, Chelsea's cousin. One day they find themselves walking around a movie set when they visit their favorite cafe, The Dish.
They all pretend to be extras on the set and find themselves with a (small) part in the movie, but Madison finds herself playing a main character after the actress who was supposed to play her breaks both legs while rollerskating. Getting a bigger and bigger head and not hanging out with her friends, Barbie confronts her and Madison is forced to make a decision, her normal friends or her new celebrity friends.
My Scene Goes Hollywood provides examples of the following tropes:
- Adaptational Attractiveness: Harvey Weinstein is shown as having a full head of hair instead of beginning to bald, and he appears to be stocky rather than overweight.
- An Aesop: Friendship is more important than being rich and/or famous.
- Animated Actor Allusion: Barbie's fantasy in the "Feel Like L.A." sequence involves her dressed as a knight in front of a tall tower as a purple dragon passes in the background.
- As Themselves: Lindsay Lohan and Harvey Weinstein.
- Blooper: In-universe. Madison and Ryan's characters' kiss scene goes through several takes until it's done right.
- Covers Always Lie: In most of the merchandise, the girls all wear fancy shawls to the premiere as part of their finale outfits. In the actual flick, only Barbie wears one.
- The Fashionista: Chelsea, who can create an outfit from a single piece of fabric and a pair of scissors.
- Friend-or-Idol Decision: Madison has to make this decision, and she ultimately chooses her lifelong friends over fame and fortune.
- Limited Social Circle: The girls don't seem to know anybody outside their group of True Companions or Madison's father.
- Never Trust a Title: The movies title suggests a trip to Hollywood, yet the entirety of the movie is set in New York City, where the girls live.
- Official Couple: Chelsea and Hudson, Barbie and River.
- The Show Goes Hollywood: The five main characters are cast as extras in a Hollywood movie being filmed all over New York, and Madison gets picked to fill for one of the roles.
- Spell My Name with an S: Madison or Westley?
- Spy Fiction: The Movie Within a Movie Spy Society.
- Theme Naming: Every main character not named Barbie or Lindsay is named after a place in New York.
- Theme Tune Roll Call: During the opening song, each girl gets their own title card.
- Trailers Always Spoil: The trailers and promos completely spoil the movie premiere scene at the very end of the movie, even the back of the DVD uses such a scene.
- True Companions: A surprisingly big group made up of all the main characters.
- Untranslated Title: Several dubs such as Dutch, Danish, Spanish, Portuguese and Finnish left the title in English. The only dub to translate the title was Estonian.
