    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    I liked this movie, maybe more than I should have, and would be happy to see anything this director wants to do next. show more

    It's dogged by awkward dialogue, a ridiculous plot and lackluster performances, especially by the leads. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Beastly offers a thoroughly dopey reread of the "Beauty and the Beast" fairy tale. show more

    There's less to Beastly than meets the eye - and what meets the eye is no great shakes, either. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Rarely do films from Hollywood emerge in such an inane manner. Its rote characters are inevitably in predictable situations with no subtext or subtlety to any of their predicaments. show more

    All good humor must come to an end, and a love story has to be able to fall back on tenderness and sweetness eventually. Unfortunately, every time Beastly reaches for either of those things, it's ... really bad. show more

    Michelle Orange Movieline

    Beastly manages to show you all the ways it might have worked by missing every available mark, sometimes by the gaping expanse between Alex Pettyfer's ears, sometimes only by the feline curl of Vanessa Hudgens' smile. show more

    Howard Cohen Miami Herald

    Beastly, for all its potential pitfalls, works better than it has any right to. Credit Barnz, who keeps his young characters contemporary in a world of text messaging and status updates and yet also gives them depth. show more

    Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel

    Witty, warm, well-cast and often wickedly funny. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    There are moments of salty wit to its teen TV sensibility, and the story offers proof, once again, than there are few stories that can't be adapted to the theme of teenaged popularity politics. show more

    you people are literally crazy if you think this was a good movie. it completely missed the entire theme to the beauty and the beast. also the acting was HORRIBLE; person who said the guy was a good actor you must be a little off your rocker. such a bad movie I can't even just so bad

    terrible. not worth your time, basically a modern beauty and the beast, except beauty and the beast has more action, there could have been more of an exciting twist to it, but no just a sappy love story that is extremely predictable.
