Quality, right?

How is it that Mattel can throw out a million (or at least three) Barbie movies a year, and I can barely get to the end of an outline in 24 months?

Quality, right?  That's what I keep telling myself: a difference in quality.


  1. Yes, and I'm sure the movies are lacking that.

  2. If you figure out the answer, can you share it?

  3. I've sailed through the Mattel commercial/exhibition in Disneyland, but didn't know they make movies too.

    Cold As Heaven

  4. I think you're right! And most of the Barbie movies I've seen (and it's so sad that I've seen so many) are remakes of old stories (Nutcracker, Rapunzel, etc.)
