About the Movie
A curse transforms a handsome and arrogant young man into everything he detests in this contemporary retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Wealthy Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) has everything a teenager could want in life, but he still gets off on humiliating the weaker and less attractive. When Kyle invites his misfit classmate Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen) to an environmental rally at their school, she questions his motivations but reluctantly accepts. Later, Kyle blows Kendra off, prompting the spurned goth girl to cast a dark spell on the swaggering egotist. The spell causes Kyle to transform into an unsightly creature that strikes fear into the heart of everyone he meets, and the only way to reverse it is for him to find someone who can love him for who he is on the inside. Subsequently sent by his repulsed father to live in Brooklyn, Kyle forges a tenuous friendship with his kindly housekeeper (Lisa Gay Hamilton) and his blind tutor (Neil Patrick Harris). When Kyle witnesses a drug addict in a desperate struggle with a menacing dealer, he intervenes, promising to protect the addict under the condition that his beautiful daughter, Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens), comes to live with the unsightly recluse in his sprawling Brooklyn home. Over time, the two forge a relationship that grows much deeper than anything Kyle has ever experienced before.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Stunningly bad.
Rotten: It's dogged by awkward dialogue, a ridiculous plot and lackluster performances, especially by the leads, Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens.
Rotten: [A] tin-eared, corny attempt at fairy-tale interpretation.
Rotten: There are flashes of genuine wit and charm that, while they cannot support the rest, hint at what was intended and not realized.
I love this movie!!! :)
This movie is so Beauitful , nice I love it so much!!! :DD I am gonna pre-order
The book madee mee cryyy nd i wanna see thee moviee soooo bad :)
Not As Good As The Book...But I Still Loved It!!!:D
I love the movie I just feel like it was kinda rushed. The book is very detailed & moves a little slower... Soooo I feel like if they made the movie a little longer maybe people(critics) could have gotten a better understanding of the characters & the story & it probably would have made a little more sense like the book did. Otherwise I loved the movie! It's cute & funny! It's got a great story, great acting, & unexpectedly great music!! I mean afterall the movie starts with Lady Gaga's Vanity sooo you already know it's gonna be a good.lol..IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET JUST GO AHEAD & BUY IT!! YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!:)
