Like I mentioned yesterday, I’ve watched Beastly twice in the space of three days, some of it has to do with my obsession with the wattpad book, and some of it to do with my recent liking to Vanessa Hudgens.
Either way, the first time I watched it, I was too lazy to write a review, and after I watched it yesterday, I was too busy writing up all them Natalie Portman, Keira Knightley, and Emma Stone posts.
So, I’ll do it now…
“Beautiful people get it better. That’s just the way it is.”
Beastly is basically the modernised version of my favourite Disney princess film: Beauty and the Beast. Which is the main reason why I grew such a liking towards it.
It goes through the story of popular High School heartthrob, Kyle Kingsbury (Pettyfer), who’s all about the looks. But then the school witch (Mary-Kate Olsen)who is totally against his ‘manifesto’ visits him at a party where she casts a hex on him, turning him ugly. She explains that he has one year to bet someone to say ‘I love you’ to him, for the spell to ware off. If he succeeds, he turns back into his usual beautiful self. If he fails, he remains ugly forever. Lindy Taylor (Hudgens), the shy-smart girl in his school, moves into his place after ‘Hunter’ (Kyle’s new name) began to follow her around every night and ended up seeing her father kill a man. In order to protect her, he begged Lindy’s father to give her to him. Hunter’s blind tutor (Harris), and his maid try a number of things to help Lindy like him, but will she say those three magic words before the year’s up?
Watch it to find out.
