Beastly is a 2011 romantic fantasy film loosely based on Alex Flinn's 2007 novel of the same name. It is a retelling of the fairytale Beauty and the Beast set in modern-day New York City. The film is written and directed by Daniel Barnz and stars Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer. The plot focuses on Kyle Kingson, a wealthy and arrogant high school student. During an environmental event, he is disrespectful to a classmate, who is secretly a witch in disguise. The witch then casts a spell on Kyle to disfigure his body and face, giving him one year to find love or be left with his monstrous appearance forever. It was expected to be distributed to theaters by CBS Films and Alliance Films on July 30, 2010. However, it was moved to March 18, 2011, in order to avoid Hudgens's film from clashing with the release of Zac Efron's film Charlie St. Cloud, but in January 2011, it was bumped up to March 4, 2011. Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) is the arrogant and vain son of wealthy news anchor Rob Kingson (Peter Krause). When he wins Green Committee president, he bullies the eccentric Kendra Hilferty (Mary-Kate Olsen) for being ugly and strange at the after-party. Disgusted, Kendra magically

    I was thinking this would be made for an older audience than it was. Given the PG13, you would think that the majority of the people watching would be over 13, but so, it felt like it was aimed at ages 11-14, yet I can't really see me letting my 12 year old watching it...

    Yeah, this movie just isn't very good. I guess if you are like a 14 year old girl then you would probably really like it

    I didn't know it was a take on Beauty and the Beast when I saw it but by the middle I did. The story line is obvious.

    It has some parts that are kind of fun but overall it's strange and I was taken back by one of the Olsen twins playing the role of the witch. What ever happened to Full House and their innocence?

    Overall, I think PG-13 was a good rating for it. There is some swearing that wasn't needed but nevertheless made it into the film.

    It may be worth your while if you Redbox it or see it for under a few dollars cost. Otherwise, I'd say you're not missing out on anything special.

    The Disney version of Beauty and the Beast has way better music anyways.

    Poor adaption on the beauty and the beast story.

    Interesting modern twist on an old fairy tale. One of the Olsen twins as the witch was a very good role for her. They swear a little too much. On the up side no F-bombs dropped. Overall its an enjoyable love story.

  • No Maturity Rating | Worth Your Time

    Started out poorly but quickly redeemed itself. Entertaining, but not award winning. You could wait for the DVD.

  • ages 10+ | Worth Your Time

    This well-done movie had some language typical of teens, but not the most offensive words. I don't recall any sex/nudity or gore. There is very little violence. A fun film!

    After being dragged to this film by my teen daughter, I emerged from the theater with a smile on my face. It was edited a bit choppier than I'd like, but it was a cute, sweet take on the classic story. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it overall.

    I concider all chick flicks horror movies anyway. But this one is really scary!

    I thought it was okay - but the dialogue and acting were a little strange.

  • ages 10+ | Worth Your Time

    I'm not usually one for chickflicks but I surprisingly enjoyed this one.
