Barbie has taken the box office by storm. Greta Gerwig’s plastic world of Barbie is enchanting audiences. It has raked in a staggering $70.5 million on its opening Friday. The film boasts a stellar ensemble, led by the captivating talents of Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Simu Liu, and America Ferrera, creating an irresistible cinematic experience. With its ingenious storyline, the movie breathes new life into discontinued Barbies and cleverly embarks on a journey to empower Ken and make him recognize his true value.

The anticipation among Robbie and her fellow cast members was palpable as they eagerly awaited the momentous kiss between the movie’s main leads. Surprisingly, no lip touches transpire between Ken and Barbie. Although the film beautifully portrays their deep connection and chemistry, Robbie couldn’t help but feel a tinge of disappointment. It turns out this was an unfulfilled item on her bucket list.

They playfully questioned Robbie about how they could do an entire film side by side and not share a single on-screen kiss. They exclaimed, “What’s wrong with you? I thought you were kind of in charge on this one!’”

As the movie unfolded, a diverse array of viewers shared their reactions, and while some playfully teased about the absence of a kiss between the main leads, many others were thoroughly content with the movie’s ending.
