"On this episode of The Flop House we discuss the Bratz movie — the best doll-inspired film since Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story."

Official Show NotesEdit

"We squander our newfound viral success by spending this episode talking about the movie Bratz. Meanwhile, Stuart solves an unsolvable math problem, Dan lauds the film's convention-defying use of time, and Elliott gives the youth a lesson about teetotaling."

Movie SummaryEdit

Somehow, this remains the gold standard of all the movies that the Floppers have watched.



­It was rich with incident.
     —Dan @06:40
­Imagine a picaresque Henry Fielding novel, and then imagine that it stars Bratz. Then you would have a pretty good approximation of the plotting in this.

­I would recommend The Golden Compass as an airplane movie, because it put me right to sleep.

  • National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007) by Jon Turteltaub (Dan) @48:10
­And let me tell you — you know, on the flip side — if you're going to watch a movie on a plane that gonna keep you paying attention the whole time... I'm not saying it's a great movie. I'm not even gonna say it's a good movie, necessarily. But I was so entertained by Book of Secrets!
