Beastly, follows Kyle (Pettyfer) who is the son of a popular & wealthy T.V news anchor in America. Kyle is a good looking guy (and what's more he knows it) who gets anything he wants. As a student, near the start of the film he is voted class President(or something) on the back of his pure cockyness, rather then any hard work, unlike his beautiful fellow candidate Lindy (Hudgens). And much to the dismay of Kendra (Olsen) who is referred to by fellow students as the "Witch", due to her Gothic appearance & beliefs in the Supernatural. So, Kendra has finally had enough of Kyle's approach to life & decides to teach him a life lesson, so, she casts a spell on him, a spell that will make him look Beastly for an entire year, and unless he finds someone to say "i love you" , kiss him, and mean it! as he looks now, he will forever remain Beastly. So Kyle drops out of College due to his new appearance & has to start changing his ways to lift the curse.

Overall this is very much a modern telling of a combination of Beauty And The Beast & The Frog Prince. The story does kinda work well, although the love interest aspect feels too forced , and the acting is on the whole very good. The standout being IMO Neil Patrick Harris's (Doogie Howser, M.D.) quirky blind tutor, who manages to lift things in places by adding a little injection (Doogie Howser pun ;-p) of comedy to the proceedings. Mary-Kate Olsen (New York Minute) also impressed, putting in a good performance, playing totally against type, she was spot on.

So this movie received mostly bad reviews, but who were these reviews written by? Adults. Who is this movie aimed at? Teens. So it's not wonder it was so critically received, and let's be honest, most teen movies are, but if all the reviews are written by adults, is this really fair? Yes, usually the standard of acting is not as good, and the plot lines are either cheesy or predictable (or both), but the people who it is aimed at are young people who will watch just about anything for a laugh and won't read into the deeper meaning of things. I don't think that these reviews are fair, and the same goes for this movie.

Beastly is a modern retelling of 'Beauty and the Beast', and is a film adaption of the book written by Alex Finn. Now with two pieces that are distinctly Disney playing major roles in this movie ('BATB' and Vanessa Hudgens), I was concerned that perhaps this movie would appear too... well.. Disney.

This movie will definitely appeal to teenage girls who like cute, romance movies, probably not so much to boys or adults. So, being as it's a modern adaption of Beauty and the Beast, everybody should know how the story's going to go... give or take an arrogant, loaded, bastard, and a drug-abusers daughter... So I guess the story of 'Beauty and the Beast' doesn't really fit into the modern world, but who cares? It's a movie. F-I-C-T-I-O-N. So apparently the acting wasn't too good, but personally, I didn't really notice this. I thought that this was a good movie, with an important moral message, that is important is this day and age: look aren't everything. By retelling this Disney classic that everybody knows the story of in modern times could help us to relate to it and to release the message behind the story.

I was only disappointed in the fact that Alex Pettyfer spent so little of this moving looking his usual, dishy self, but on the whole it was quite a good movie.

How shall I start? This film was AWESOME! Speaking from a young perosons perspective I think this is a great film particuarly for teens and I was shocked to how good an accress vanessa hudgens is out of hight school musical. Alex Pettyfer, what can I say, hes a great, easy on the eyes, british actor known from a few other good films. I loved this film and I would definitely reccomend it.

This film is really a modern fairytale, Kyle is the son of a rich and vain news anchor, he enjoys bullying and tormenting the school witch Kendra. She decides to teach Kyle a lesson by turning him into a beast of sorts, with one way out of his new hell he must find someone who loves him otherwise he will remain a beast. Lindy Taylor may just be that someone who can reverse the beast spell but how will she react when she finds out who he really is. The chemistry between Pettyfer and Hudgens isn't there for me, they fail to bring the story more alive. This movie is perfect for teens but that's about it.

BEASTLY is a freakishly fun film starring Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgins. It was really, really good! The acting was particularly impressive, it was very believable! The effects were very hideous and funny and very realistic! The humour was laugh out loud at points and i loved the modern twist to Beauty and the Beast. This might be a 12 but most of it is at a kid's level. The only things is there is the occasional swear. But only the S word. A brilliant film that you will want to watch over and over again! A hilarious and ingenius film! 10/10! BRILLIANT!
