Unfortunately I was unable to catch either event, but reviews of the performance were mixed, as Variety reports "Tyra Banks definitely has what it takes to play a living doll, but the lesson she teaches our poor isolated girl is certainly questionable.

Not exactly the kind of message parents may want their daughters to take to heart." But at least they do say there are charming moments in the film.
