The witch then casts a spell on Kyle, which disfigures his body and face, and gives him an ultimatum; before one year passes he must find true love or he will be left with his monstrous appearance forever. Though he believes that this task is impossible, Kyle finds himself drawn towards a quiet classmate, Lindy Taylor (Vanessa Hudgens), and eventually falls in love with her.

Beastly Movie Review:
This is a movie which I’ve waited for more than half a year! It was supposed to be out since Jul 2010, but it was delayed to avoid clashing with the release of Zac Efron’s Charlie St Cloud… (Awww… so sweet)
The plot focuses on Kyle Kingson, a wealthy and arrogant high school student. During an environmental event, he disrespects a classmate, who is secretly a witch in disguise. The witch then casts a spell on Kyle to disfigure his body and face, giving him a year to find love or be left with his monstrous appearance forever.
For Beauty and the Beast fans, yeap, it’s beauty AND the beast… just that I think the movie is more focused on the beast (aka Kyle) rather than the Beauty like in the cartoon…
It’s a nice show, no surprises, but it’s not bad either, and I like the “witch’s” performance… her nonchalent, odd behaviour… it is a bit more outstanding than Vanessa’s “Beauty” role~
Being a fan of Zanessa, I will still give this a thumbs up for the great makeup on Hunter, the “rose greenhouse”, the weird yet clever witch… and also the twist in the ending…
It makes me wonder if there is a part 2 to the show and left me wanting more… 🙂
and of cuz, who you watch it with matters a lot too~
