    I've watched this like 50 times! This movie is fantastic! I want to take fencing now! Seriously, this is wonderful movie with a great script. It's not the original 3 Musketeers, but it's own story. And there is a short special feature with dancing cats that hysterical! Excellent movie!

    OK if you like simple. Not for the very young for fighting violence, but unbelievable for over 7.

    I know Barbie is supposed to be for the girliest girls. The idea of Barbie being a Musketeer and using girl power is unrealistic for preteen girls facing real girl issues. Barbie, as Corinne, travels by herself from the countryside to Paris, dressed as girly as she can and doesn't take any precautions for safety. Paris, especially, during the Musketeer days, was dangerous for everyone, especially a 17 year old blonde girl. Barbie can't become a Musketeer so she becomes a servant in the King's household where there are other servant girls equally as pretty as she is with lots of spare time on their unscruffed hands. They swoon over the crowned Prince, who is oblivious to everyone and everything except his toys. He doesn't want to become King, and doesn't seem to care about his people. So why have him be King? So when he is in danger, he can't even fight to save his life, the girls have to protect him. Why we all wonder? The girls are likeable. All the actors seem appropriate, except the Prince whose voice doesn't sound at all princely, but wimpy and annoying. The songs are catchy, but not for the very young. I can't see the educational value of this dvd, except it does attempt to teach girls to follow your dreams at any cost and blindly. If your daughter does watch this dvd, it helps for a parent to watch along to discuss lots of safety concerns.

    Barbie and The Three Musketeers Packs Plenty of Girl Power!

    In the movie The Three Musketeers, Barbie isn't your typical high-heeled, high fashion, pink convertible driving Mattel doll. This animated adventure based on the 17th century novel by Alexandre Dumas packs plenty of girl power! Barbie brandishes a sword, fights bad guys and even saves the prince. All her life, Barbie (called Corinne in the movie) dreams of joining the royal guard, the Musketeers, just like her famous father, d'Artagnan. When she turns 17 years old, she leaves home to pursue her dream in Paris, France where her deceased dad trained. But her dreams are soon shattered! First, Corinne learns that one can't just volunteer to be a musketeer - one had to be appointed by a member of royalty. Then her father's former swashbuckling companions tell her that traditionally all of the musketeers had been strong, brave - and men. Talk about your glass ceiling!

    "All for one and One for all!"
    But Corinne doesn't give up easily. When the musketeers refuse to train her, Corinne finds work as a maid in the prince's castle. There she meets three other maids who also secretly desire to be musketeers. The girls train in secret with an old woman in the castle who hobbles around on a cane but is a surprisingly skilled fighter (think Yoda in Star Wars). While Corinne and her friends are working to prove they are worthy to be musketeers, mysterious accidents keep happening around Prince Louis. Corinne tries to convince the prince that the men sworn to protect him are secretly plotting to kill him so that his evil, backstabbing cousin Phillipe can claim his place on the throne.

    "Don't mess with the dress!"
    The soundtrack features popular music that really rocks. And there are still plenty of "girly" moments for Barbie fans. Corinne does back flips with finesse as she wields her sword and her friends look absolutely stunning as they thwart villains with cool moves of their own. Who knew ribbons and decorative fans could be so lethal?
