Unconventionality rules in UglyDolls, the fun and quirky animated musical out on Digital now and on Blu-rayTM Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on July 30, 2019 from STXfilms and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Centered around the adorably unique town of Uglyville, the film follows Moxy and her friends as they confront what it means to be different and discover that you don’t have to be perfect to be amazing. Inspired by the global plush phenomenon and based on the UglyDoll characters created by David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim, UglyDolls is filled with colorful and adorable characters and packed with powerful messages of inclusion and empowerment. Join the fun and keep the party going with the music-filled comedy on Blu-rayTM, DVD and Digital showcasing an exclusive, all-new sing-along edition and stuffed with exciting bonus features allowing fans everywhere to dive deeper into the world of Uglyville.


Featuring a star-studded voice cast including Kelly Clarkson (The Star, “The Voice”), Nick Jonas (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Janelle Monáe (Hidden Figures, Rio 2), Blake Shelton (The Angry Birds Movie, “The Voice”), Pitbull (“Empire,” Epic), Wanda Sykes (“Black-ish,” Bad Moms) and Gabriel Iglesias (Ferdinand), the humorous and heartwarming film comes home with vibrant bonus content such as featurettes that reveal how the talented cast brought their characters to life, hilarious games with the cast and a sneak peek of the exclusive sing-along edition’s interactive entertainment.

In Uglyville, weird is celebrated, strange is special and beauty is embraced as more than simply meets the eye. When Moxy (Clarkson) and the UglyDolls discover Perfection, a town where dolls are seen through a strict model of attractiveness, they 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. Directed by Kelly Asbury (Smurfs: The Lost Village, Shrek 2) and featuring original songs performed by Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Janelle Monáe, Blake Shelton and Pitbull, UglyDolls is “a movie you’ll want to watch again, and again!” (Naz Perez, Fandango).

This is movie is more than just a cute movie for the kids.  It has such a powerful message that even as adults that we need to hear our self!  It is okay to be different, it is okay to be unique and shine in your own way.  We all have flaws and no one is perfect!  I am in awe of this movie and its message, such a great movie!  I went into it not knowing what to expect and loved it.  Afterwards, my husband who was on the fences, was like "wow, that was a good movie".   The all star cast and the songs make this movie!

Moxy the main character has dreamed that today will be the day and she will get a child of her own!.  She embraces her differences and shows the dolls at the institute of perfection that there is no such thing as perfect!  Even though I have a teen and a preteen, this movie was a great segway on how Middle school can be rough, it is okay to be different.   These are the worst years of school for some and kids pick on the differences, instead embrace your differences and those of the ones around you!

I was recently sent an "UglyDolls Find a Home" mailer. UglyDolls ultimately want to be loved and find their very own home. My kids and I each officially adopted an UglyDoll and all their uniqueness! I mean seriously what is not to love about these guys and girls, they are so cute!


A fun recipe for movie night:

Donuts are a yummy treat, but when you buy them at the store they are covered with thick frostings, sugar and usually deep fried.   To help  cut the sugar content and the deep fried aspect, I opted to make baked cake donuts that use flavored waters to help sweeten the donut and give it a light yummy flavor!  Each donut is different and unique, just like the Ugly Dolls!

Prep time Cook time Total Time
10 mins 10-15 mins 20-25 mins

Yield: 2 dozen large donuts or 4 dozen mini donuts


  • 1 box  yellow cake mix (I used a store brand that was 18.2oz)
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup Aquaball flavored water of your choice (I used Berry Frost) or your favorite brand of flavored water
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • sprinkles (optional) 
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  2. Spray donut pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In your mixer, mix together the cake mix, egg, vegetable oil, and Aquaball water until completely mixed
  4. Pour batter into a zipper plastic bag and cut off small section of one corner. If you are making with kids it is easier for them to handle a lunch size bag, if not use a gallon bag. 
  5. Squeeze donut mixture into sprayed donut pan, filling each opening about a  ½ full.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-15 minutes. Let donuts cool in pan  and  then remove place on a on wire rack (under  each rack place wax paper).

For the Glaze:
  1. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the melted butter, powdered sugar, and milk until  there are no more lumps
  2. Dip the the donuts about ½ way into the glaze.
  3. Place back on wire cooling rack.
  4. Top with fun sprinkles if you desire! 
  5. Let them sit on wire rack until glaze set
