Love , love , love this diamond of a story. Brilliant and enchanting. Perfection. I watched it three times and could view it yet again because it's that freaking cool.
One of the best movies I have seen in a long time no cussing no sex it was just like watching one of many of disney classics of a lifetime it was like a total remake of the animation I sat down in the theater with my teenage daughter and my daughter who is almost thirty and her four daughters and enjoyed every minute of it
Loved this film, superb casting choices!
This was a really good movie! Although it was similar to the original I feel like the new songs were unneeded and made the move longer than it should have been.
Did not like it
Not too bad. I was skeptical but I ended up enjoying it. Pretty faithful to the original Disney cartoon. Lumier was funny, did NOT expect Scottish actor Ewen MacGregor to be doing a french accent animated roll.
Fran Drescher and Timothy Dalton make a wonderful romantic comedy team. 5/5
absolutely beautifully done movie. loved the characters, the acting, the setting, the storyline. and the costumes alone should win awards in itself. feel privileged I got to see it in 3d in the theatre before it went to dvd.
Soo good, best live action Disney yet!!
Ugh. How does Emma Watson keep finding acting work? She's terrible! It's like she mistakenly went into a woodshop class instead of acting school. Does she have a competition with Kristen Stewart to be the worst actress ever?
Pretty much a shot-for-shot remake of the animated film. Emma Watson once again proves how dull she is. The inexplicable commercial success of this film and The Jungle Book prompted an announcement from the Disney Corporation that all of their classic animated films will see live action remakes. Ugh. Give yourselves a pat on the back, people. You're killing cinema.
Good movie. :)
I love the songs, the movie was awesome!!!!!!!!!!
I can't wait when the movie comes on DVD.
Was long and boring. The animated version was so much better.
We had fun watching this movie. :)
Emma Watson's "I love you" to the beast should be the most important line in the movie, but it's so passionless, so flat, that it feels like a throwaway line. She seems to believe that whispering such a major line makes it meaningful and sensitive, but I see that device as simply avoiding any emotion at all. Loved Josh Gad's humor, though. Movie overall: I'll take the animated version any day. Who can forget Angela Lansbury in that one?
As others have said, this movie lays a giant egg, largely because the performances are so wooden (I'm looking at you,Emma Watson). Also, the darker tone the filmmakers attempted to imbue this with felt forced and only added to the wrong turns that sink this feeble fable. Hopefully Disney will fare better with Ariana Grande as The Little Mermaid. 1 star is much too generous for this bungled production.
The movie was good. The music and the backgrounds. Love the details.
I agree 100 percent with one of the reviews. ........ZERO CHEMESTRY BEETWEEN THE 2 LEADS!!!!!!! I have both 2 disc special edition and Platinum anniversary edition animated at home....the emotional content in those gives me tears every time I watch them.... But not one single drop in the real version......and Emma Watson does not give the animated Belle any justice at all .....she seems so " staged acting ".....not the right choice for the role.....sorry Emma....I love you as an actress...but what a flop in this one...you should have taken the emotional side in the animated version.....it would had been so much more poignant. ......way to much hype on this one.....so disappointed. ...hurray for Lumiere lol??
Thought it was good. ...I just think that it could have been a little more oriented toward the character showing a little bit more connection between the two of them.....to me the affection from belle could have been a little more powerful then it was especially in the end scene when she Says " I love you " to the beast....I cried in the animated version more then the real version on that particular scene......awsome special effects though...."be our guest " was phenomenal....emotional content. ...3 .5....the rest.....stable 4
It is very good movie. The first scene was superb, then adventures and the last scene. It is feel good movie. I have seen it more than 8 times now. I still can't get enough. I think i will still see it more before it theatrical ends.
Best movie of the year so far. :)
The movie was great.
My husband and I saw this. Well done, i have seen the play but this as a movie was well done. A must see.
Saw this a couple times. I only do that for the best movies.
AMAZING! LOVED IT!
This movie Beauty and the Beast is very very good
I THOUGHT IT WAS FABULOUS, SO WELL DONE , AM GOING TO BUY IT WHEN IT COMES OUT ON DVD. THE ACTORS AND ACTRESSES WERE PERFECT AND THE COSTUMES WERE SO DEAD ON TO THE ANIMATED MOVIE WOW. IT IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE A VERY EMOTIONAL FILM FOR ME. YOU HAVE TO SEE IT! I THINK THAT IT SHOULD BE HIGHER THEN A 5--I WOULD GIVE IT A 10!!
loved this movie, better then i expected.
Amazing movie. :)
Our family had a good time watching this movie.
the singing was terrible, the 3d was disappointing, the story was poor, the special effects were poor. I was really looking forward to this film, what a waste of time.
I loved some of the music and the beautiful backgrounds. Funny story.
Emma Watson was amazing as Belle
The wolves looked no so great. They needed look more like wolves. The dresses were amazing. I did not like the adding of a book of travel anywhere you want to. The movie overall was great. Hoping to see this in Disneyland next time we go.
All gloss. The ennui was oppressive. Don't believe the hype.
We had a good time. :)
Very funny movie.
Very overdone with the manic animation, which takes away from the simple beauty of the story. Also didn't like several inferences of gay couples; can't we just leave the sexual innuendos out of kids movies.
