UglyDolls movie opens in theaters nationwide May 3rd. This movie's message of inclusion and celebrating what makes you unique is on point for our current social climate. In this digital age, life seems to be more competitive and the opportunities to compare ourselves to others on instagram, facebook, pinterest is just abundant. It is important to embrace our differences and "ugly" parts. I was born with a heart condition, congenital complete heart block. At age 9 (5th grade), I had to undergo surgery for a pacemaker implant. The scar I was left with was high up on my left chest. As I proceeded into middle school and high school, I was painfully aware it was there and I considered it "ugly" and for sure not normal. I was self conscience of it and chose clothing that would always hide it. Even when friends of mine knew about my condition, it wasn't something I wanted shown. Picking out swimsuits was the worst because as a girl, it was just present and much harder to hide. I was fortunate to attended a summer camp for kids with other heart conditions for several summers. Many of them had scars and many scars were way more prominent than my own. It was through their confidence and just the fact that I was growing up that I was able to start embracing it as part of my journey. Now, at 40 years old, I wear it with a badge of honor embracing my journey and what I have gone through. I have had 4 surgeries since then and my scar has changed over the years, but even when they are more pronounced than at other times, I am not ashamed of it anymore. I am no longer afraid of people noticing it. If someone asks, I simply tell them. It is part of me and who I am and I am totally okay with it now. And I realized most people are totally okay with it too and they don't think twice about it. We all have our stuff and we can embrace each other including our differences and make this world a better place. Can you relate? I am sure you can, so you will enjoy this 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.
