Just like the other newer Strawberry Shortcake DVD's. Great story, the music is fun. My 2 year old Grandaughter loves it. I love no, commercials. The stories flow into each other. Pretty educational. The girls teach politeness, kindness and caring about each other. Great series.
I give every movie a chance if I can. SO when the American offering of the Korean classic came to the screen, I jumped on it. And I'm sorry I did. Even if I hadn't see the original, I would have still walked out of the multiplex disappointed. if you haven't, SEE THE ORIGINAL!!!
This earnest and arch story -- so fast paced its formulas are wonderfully obscured -- has an adolescent energy and a tempered sexuality, and it's infused with the moral agenda of a warmly didactic sitcom.
The drama never feels more than a well-shot TV soap. Worse is Roos' tragic insistence on text inserts to explain every motivation, making the whole thing look like a fatal cross between Queer As Folk and VH1's Pop Up Video.
