Barbie Gets Sad Too (2002)

Original title: Barbie Tambien Puede Estar Triste

AKA: Barbie Can Also Be Sad

Director: Albertina Carri

Writer: Albertina Carri

Composer: Edgardo Rudnitzky

Starring: Divina Gloria, Osvaldo Gonzalez, Ricardo Merkin, Juana Molina, Susana Pampin, Eusebio Poncela, Diego Schipani

More info: IMDb

Plot:  Stop-motion animation featuring Ken and Barbie dolls. Engaging in sexual (and some rather kinky) activities. Also some violence. The plot evolves around troubles in their marriage, due to Ken being a jerk. Will Barbie find happiness?

My rating: 8/10

Will I watch it again?  Yes.

Now this is the kind of thing you throw on at parties!

Mattel, the toy maker behind Barbie, tried to stop this from being shown in the filmmakers native Argentina.  They failed.  Hell, it was even shown on TV there!!!  It's truly a work of art and I stand applauding Carri for making this exist at all.  It's hilarious.  Sure, the stop motion isn't as fluid as you'd like it to be but considering it's a solid 20 minutes of stop motion Barbie dolls having straight sex, gay sex, lesbian sex, chicks with dicks sex and in all kinds of positions and explicitness, I'd say he did a fantastic job regardless of the frame rate. What's more is there's some semblance of a story but who the fuck cares?  It's Barbie dolls fuckin' every which-a-away and then some.  What the whole glorious shebang embedded above then download the sumbitch and spice up every party from now on.
