MovieIn the United States, “Barbie” immediately broke a box office record during its opening weekend, and the film is also extremely popular in our country with 180,000 visitors in six days. Although there has also been some turmoil online. For example, some moviegoers describe “Barbie” as “pure man hating”. “Every male character is either an idiot, a fanatical fanatic, or a sad, rather pathetic loser.”

On Rotten Tomatoes, “Barbie” receives an impressive 90/100 score from the public, but not everyone agrees with that assessment. Besides the many positive reactions, the print also receives many reviews online. “If the tables were turned and a male director made a film about how all women are hysterical, neurotic, money-hungry creatures, the film would – rightly – be branded offensive and sexist,” the Daily Mail wrote.
“The film is, so to speak, against men,” he continues. “It’s an extension of so-called TikTok feminism, which paints every form of masculine as toxic and threatening. Every male character is either an idiot, a bigoted bigot, or a sad, rather pathetic loser.
Others describe the feminist view of “Barbie” as “woke”. Many male moviegoers find it unacceptable that the character of Ken (played by Ryan Gosling) is considered less intelligent than Barbie (Margot Robbie). The song ‘I’m Just Ken’, in which the main character complains about his vulnerability, among other things, also receives a lot of criticism online. “It may be the most anti-masculine movie ever made.” Someone else wrote on Twitter: “All you need to know about #BarbieTheMovie is that the word ‘patriarchy’ has been used over a dozen times.”
