The Lamb Community chose this as the new feature that they wanted covered for July. They appear to have chosen wisely because this was the biggest opening of the year, and a marketing success across the board. This week the Lamb contributes to the marketing behemoth that “Barbie” has become by discussing the films merits, faults, politics, music and dance numbers.
Barbie and Ken face an existential crisis and must travel to the real world to deal with it. Jeanette Ward and Matthew Simpson face the same crisis so that’s why they decided to join the show. Cinema Recall crashed the party as well, adding both the Vern and Ashley to the discussion.Link: https://largeassmovieblogs.com/2023/07/lambcast-695-barbie.html

This piece/episode was produced during the 2023 WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Without the labour of the writers and actors currently on strike, the films being discussed here wouldn’t exist.
