The film review on ABP Live reads: The live-action ‘Barbie’ movie is an attempt to not spend much capital on scriptwriting and yet knowing that the fans will come to its rescue. The Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling film directed by Greta Gerwig uses the age-old concept of two worlds viz. Barbie World and the Real World exist in two different planes where neither is much aware that the other also exists. And, then those worlds need saving.
‘Barbie’ made $26 million on Monday, making it a Warner Bros. movie’s best-ever box office outcome, according to Variety. This achievement surpasses the prior record of $24.6 million held by Christopher Nolan’s famous movie ‘The Dark Knight’.
