What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Not much of a monster
Paul Boekkooi Ligpunte hier en daar red nie diť fliek
Kirk Honeycutt No sense of magic is tragic
Amy Nicholson The 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.
Jason Anderson Saddled 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.
James Berardinelli Beastly opts not only to modernize the story but to transplant it into the ''real world.'' The result is a contrived mess.
C. Fuchs Not quite the train wreck I thought it would be.
Tomatometer Fundamentally misguided, poorly written, and badly acted, Beastly adds little to the legacy of its timeless source material.
