Beastly

It's what's underneath


Beastly
A kiddie-friendly update of the classic Beauty and the Beast tale. He's a good-looking high-school student, who scorns the non-beautiful people. Unfortunately he upsets a witch and is cursed for his efforts. He is made unpleasant to look at, but can regain his original looks if he manages to convince someone to fall in love with him within a year. The prettiest girl in school is a natural choice for this task... but what if she had the same view on beauty that he had?

87 minutes.

Box Office
Amy Nicholson quote iconThe surprise is that this long-delayed CBS Films release is funnier, sharper and sweeter than expected -- at least good enough to meet its low expectations.
8
eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconSaddled with the presence of two actors who don’t seem to realize they’re in the same movie together, Barnz’s freak-friendly fairy tale loses its gusto.
5
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconBeastly opts not only to modernize the story but to transplant it into the ''real world.'' The result is a contrived mess.

C. Fuchs quote iconNot quite the train wreck I thought it would be.

Tomatometer quote iconFundamentally misguided, poorly written, and badly acted, Beastly adds little to the legacy of its timeless source material.
