Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It is a surprise, in a time of sequels and retreads, that the new film is so fresh and altogether triumphant in its own right.
Fresh: The set pieces are narcotically pleasing, especially the Busby Berkeley-style dancing-kitchenware spectacular, "Be Our Guest," and the romantic ballroom centerpiece that brings Beauty and her Beast together.
Fresh: Its animators' pens are wands; their movement enchants.
Fresh: A lovely film that ranks with the best of Disney's animated classics.
I absolutely love this movie. I grew up watching it with my mom now I enjoy watching it with my daughter 20 years later...
A definite "must see"
This movie is an enchanting fairy tale, entertaining and appropriate for all ages. Though it is altered from the original folk tale, it still retains a timeless and magical charm. Fantastic songs, hilarious characters, beautifully presented scenes, and flawless directing makes this an enjoyable cinema for the whole family to enjoy.
"The Most Beautiful Love Story Ever Told"
Few children's films ever come close to matching the beauty of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast". When it was first released 25 years ago, it was even hailed as the best Broadway musical of the year, convincing Disney to adapt this film (and eventually a few of Disney's other films) to Broadway. And who can forget the Oscar nomination for Best Picture. These and other reasons make this film a classic that no family with children should be without!
