Rebecca DeMornay's acting is fine but the script is absolutely terrible. The sets look artificial and totally unconvincing and the supporting cast are extremely weak especially the prince

Years ago I saw this version of Beauty and the Beats and never forget it; because I believed it had good and likable music, which it has easy music... as well as beautiful rich textiles....
Simple to like, the only down is: I just prefer the beats better then the price...median actor, just not an ounce of effort put in this paper... and the children notice it, at least my little cousins...
Although good for afternoons family entertainment it revealed a tiny bit expensive...
There are more versions on this history... equally likable and with better actors... I'm thinking of the new French version: La Belle et la Bette...
There was a lovable music... you can see it in YouTube prior to buy the Cd...

This film is just as good as the disney version. It is a musical film with loads of memorable songs. Beauty has to be my favourite character along with the beast.

My favourite song is Wish for the moon. I sing it all day!

One of my favourites with stunning costumes/acting/songs.

If only we could all have a dream prince like Beauty!

Cannon Movie Tales Finally on DVD! 6 Jun. 2005
By Heidi Anne Heiner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
John Savage is the Beast/Prince and Rebecca De Mornay is Beauty in this Cannon Movie Tale musical based on the beloved French fairy tale.

Here's the movie's description available from Sony Pictures: "The beautiful Rebecca De Mornay (The Three Musketeers) stars in this beloved live-action version of the classic fairy tale about finding true love in the unlikeliest of places - the haven of a monster! Featuring delightful musical numbers, lavish scenery and spellbinding magic, Beauty and the Beast reminds us that if you see with your heart, anything's possible!

"Beauty (De Mornay) is the family caretaker. While her sisters fret about gentleman callers, her only concern is for their father's wellbeing. So when he loses the family fortune and angers a beast (John Savage) that lives in a magnificent castle, Beauty dutifully agrees to become the beast's prisoner. But what she doesn't know is that his surprising kindness might also capture her heart."

The Cannon Movie Tale series of nine films has become nearly as popular among fairy tale enthusiasts and family film fans as Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre. Some would argue that this series is even more popular. Either way, these musicals are suitable for the entire family and feature well-known actors from the 1980s.

Childhood Nostalgia 10 Nov. 2005
By Emily K. Stuart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The entire Canon series was on the Disney channel in the 80's and I was in love with them! Beauty and the Beast is my favorite, with Sleeping Beauty a close second. While this version may not be as technologically advanced as the well known Disney animated Beauty and the Beast, this one is the closest to the original story. The music is enjoyable and has a lovely sing-along quality to it. I find that even now, as an adult, I love the movie just as much as I did when I was 10. If you watched it as a child, it will surely bring back wonderful memories, as it did for me. This series is excellent family programming and I would definately recommend it to anymore.

Another classic brought to life by Cannon Movie Tales! 17 Jun. 2008
By Monty Moonlight - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
A beautiful girl who devotes all her time to caring for her wealthy family is the only one not troubled when their fortune is lost. When her father picks a rose from the garden of a mysterious beast's castle while traveling home from an unsuccessful journey, she decides to take his place as the beast's captive. The beast provides for Beauty anything her heart desires, but he also asks her, every night at the dinner table, if she loves him and will be his wife.

Rebecca De Mornay stars as Beauty and John Savage as the beast in this wonderful film from the must-own Cannon Movie Tales series. If you love fairytales, this whole series of films is for you! These full-length, family features all have original songs and at least one recognizable star. The songs are often simple and forgettable, and the acting quality varies, but they are all highly entertaining nevertheless and made just right to be appreciated by all ages. I've never been smitten by Rebecca De Mornay, but I must say that in this early film of hers, she is rather breathtaking. John Savage is excellent as the beast, and the make-up effects, though a bit reminiscent of Teen Wolf at first, are rather good. These Cannon Movie Tales are not cheapy productions by any means. I own all that have been released so far, except for Rumpelstiltskin, which I have never seen in stores but is supposedly available here on Amazon. If you grew up watching these on the Disney Channel (back when it was the best channel on TV), you will definitely want these and will remember that there are two others that have not been released yet at all to DVD: Sleeping Beauty and The Frog Prince. Hey, MGM, what's the hold-up? Anyway, the others are: Puss in Boots (with Christopher Walken in a wonderful performance), Hansel and Gretel (one of the best ones), Snow White (also wonderful), Red Riding Hood (my personal favorite), and The Emperor's New Clothes (very funny). All are fullscreen, unfortunately, and each comes with its theatrical trailer. I also highly recommend the Disney animated features, especially "Beauty and the Beast"!

beautiful musical version of the timeless tale 22 May 2007
By Byron Kolln - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This great version of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST comes from the fondly-remembered Cannon MovieTales series. Rebecca DeMornay and John Savage star in the lead roles, with lavish costumes and a delicate musical score.

Beauty (Rebecca DeMornay), the youngest daughter of a widowed merchant, spends her days caring and tending to her lazy brothers and sisters. When her father angers the mysterious occupant of a castle, Beauty selflessly offers to live with the hideous Beast (John Savage). Every night, Beauty dreams of a handsome prince who begs her to find him...

This version of the romantic fairytale takes it's cue from the classic 1946 French movie "La Belle et la Bete" (directed by Jean Cocteau) with it's lavish costumes and production design. There are several lovely musical numbers--the main highlight being "If You See with Your Heart", a tender duet for the Beast and a homesick Beauty.

The Cannon MovieTales series was filmed--rather economically--in Israel; you'll note that many of the films feature the same sets and costumes. It's refreshing to see Rebecca DeMornay playing a naive innocent (years before producers began casting her as sexy psychopaths in films like "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle").

Most of the Cannon MovieTales have found their way to DVD (the others include "Hansel & Gretel", "Sleeping Beauty", "Rumplestiltskin", "The Frog Prince", "Snow White", and "Red Riding Hood").

Children of the 80's rejoice! (Single-sided, single-layer disc).

By Lauren L. Bocanegra - Published on Amazon.com

Has been a favorite of mine since I was just a wee toddler. I love this movie. Every time I watch it, why it just makes me want to break out into song. Wonderful movie for kids and adults of all ages. Hurrah. Go Beauty and the Beast. Apparently, everyone CAN find happiness. Yay.
