Nathalia Ramos, Skyler Shaye, Logan Browning, and Janel Parrish star as the member of the group, with Chelsea Staub, Lainie Kazan, and Jon Voight in supporting roles.[4] The story revolves around a group of four teenage girls, the origin of their friendship and the social pyramid that tries to make the Bratz conform to archetypal high school cliques. Principal photography took place in Los Angeles between February and March 2007.

Bratz was released in the United States on August 3, 2007, by Lionsgate. The film was panned by critics and received five nominations at the 28th Golden Raspberry Awards, including Worst Picture. It was also a commercial failure, grossing only $26 million worldwide against a $20 million budget, failing to break even.[3]
