Movie Spotlight ~ Ugly Dolls

May 2, 2019 Misc. 7

Teaming up with Grace Hills Media to spread the spotlight on Ugly Dolls a movie about some weird little characters who just want love and acceptance.


Talk about an imperfection that you have learned to embrace, or a part of yourself that you once thought was “ugly,” but later realized makes you beautiful, unique, special, and you have learned to embrace.

This is a difficult subject to talk about for me as I have always had a very low self-esteem. As long as I can remember I have always been an overweight person, from probably about the 5th grade, so I have been called about every name associated with that. Kids are mean but adults are as well.

When I think about something that made me feel ugly growing up I would say just about everything about me. It wasn’t till I was older that I realized that I had a great smile and cool personality and that if people wanted to just look at the outside and not get to know the person on the inside then that was their lose and not mine. I still struggle with this everyday but the older you get the easier it is to just let it roll off you and not let things bother you, but everyone wants someone to see them for who they are inside and out.

I still have a hard time taking a compliment if someone says I look great. I have currently lost 40 pounds but still see myself the same way so when someone says, “Girl, I can tell you have been losing weight.” Instead of just saying thank you, I always want to say, “really I can’t tell.”

So I am still learning to embrace the part of me I don’t like but every day I keep telling myself that I am a beautiful person with a great smile and winning personality! 🙂 Maybe I just need a cool song like these ugly dolls have!! HEHE 🙂

Do you have things about yourself you have learned to embrace that you didn’t care for much growing up? 

Don’t know about you but I can’t wait to watch this cute little movie!!!


In the adorably different town of Uglyville, weird is celebrated, strange is special and beauty is embraced as more than simply meets the eye. Here, the free-spirited Moxy and her UglyDoll friends live every day in a whirlwind of bliss, letting their freak flags fly in a celebration of life and its endless possibilities. The endearingly unique residents of Uglyville occasionally look to the sky above the town, where a new UglyDoll will appear and be embraced by the community.

Moxy (Kelly Clarkson) loves her square-peg life in this round-hole town, but her curiosity about all things leads her to wonder if there’s something – anything – on the other side of the mountain which nestles Uglyville. Moxy gathers a group of her closest friends and sets off to find what’s on the other side. They discover another world – Perfection – 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. Here, the UglyDolls will confront what it means to be different, struggle with their desire to be loved, and ultimately discover that you don’t have to be perfect to be amazing because who you truly are is what matters most.

UGLYDOLLS releases in theaters this Friday, May, 3.

    I’ve never heard of this movie, but it looks cute😁 I always struggled to make friends when I was a kid (actually I still do), I was very shy and I didn’t like any of the same things other people did. Now I have my online blogging community who loves books just as much as I do!

      It looks super cute! I was very shy as well and still am, it’s easier to chat online with my bookish friends. 🙂

    I’ve been hearing about this movie on the radio a lot for some reason – maybe because I’m in the car so much. I think it sounds adorable and so glad to see it featured here on your blog!

    I haven’t heard about this film before, I do love animation and the synopsis sounds really good. I will look out for it.

    I also wanted to say thank you for sharing you personally insecurities with us too, it takes a brave person to do that. I don’t know you in real life but if we ever met, I’m sure we’d become friends. X
