The much-beloved global plush toy phenomenon UglyDolls hits the big screen with this fun-packed new animated musical adventure, featuring the acting and singing voices of a wonderful cast, including Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Janelle Monáe, Blake Shelton and Pitbull. Unconventionality rules at the film’s warm-hearted core, as the ever-optimistic UglyDolls confront accepted notions of beauty. In Uglyville, the free-spirited Moxy (Kelly Clarkson) and her UglyDoll friends live every day in a whirlwind of bliss. Occasionally, the endearingly unique residents of Uglyville look to the sky, where a new UglyDoll will appear and be embraced by the community. But when Moxy and a group of her closest friends set off to find what’s outside their community, they discover another world – Perfection. It is a town where more conventional dolls are trained in protocols before they graduate and are sent to the ‘real’ world to find the love of a child. In Perfection, Moxy and her crew are subject to the manipulations of Lou (Nick Jonas), the perfect doll in charge of training recruits. UglyDolls will be especially popular with young filmgoers, 4–10 years old. [U]
