Moxy is a strange-looking doll living in an even-stranger world.
Her home is Uglyville, a place where teddy bears and other stuffed animals go live when their appearance isn’t perfect. Moxy has three teeth, almost no hair and (apparently) multiple appendages.
But she’s beautiful where it counts: on the inside. She’s filled with joy and cheer. She’s bubbly. The citizens of Uglyville love her.
Moxy, though, has a streak of adventure. She wants to discover the real world – you know, what it’s like outside the walls of Uglyville.
So one day she and her friends scale Uglyville’s border, travel down a pipe, and land in another city. It’s the Institute of Perfection, a place where every toy looks flawless.
“We will help you grow from pretty to perfect,” a voice tells the citizens.
Moxy thinks she fits in, but soon, the ego-centric leader of of city, Lou, tells Moxy and her friends to leave. She refuses.
“We’re not going anywhere,” she tells him. “...We’re just as lovable as you.”
The animated film UglyDolls (PG) opens this weekend, telling the story of a doll who explores the true definition of beauty.
