The Beautician and the Beast Reviews

The intro was hilarious. Fran Drescher was and still awesome in her own way. Many people might not like her voice but I even enjoy that! I loved The Nanny but couldn't love this in that way. It was okay. Got some funny moments into it but not that hilarious.

Good giggle-producing combination of The Sound of Music and every fairy tale cliche pairs a tyrant (Timothy Dalton) with a New Yorker (Fran Drescher), and he doesn't stand a chance. The two are in each other's face so often that romance inevitable blooms. Royal pageantry is a visual bonus.

I'm not a Fran Drescher fan, but for some reason this movie beyond my own understanding, I can't help but like to watch.

Maybe, its Tim. Dalton..no...who cares!? Its hilarious!!

Overall it was a cute movie, but Fran has one of those kinds of voices that would drive and does drive me nuts.

Cute twist on Beauty and the Beast...if u can get past Fran's accent which as a New Yorker I love, it's cute

If you are going to take a name from a movie and make a play on words then make sure the moie is worth it.

I can't believe I actually watched this (it was free, and I worked at a movie theatre) -- I think it was one of those where you know that it'll be bad, but you just wanna see HOW bad.
November 27, 2007
lol even though her voice is annoying, i love this movie...not enough to add to my fav. movies, but enough to watch whenever its on

Strictly for Fran fans. You know the story and how it ends, but it's better with nasal commentary. And Timothy Dalton's grunts and growls are somehow charming.
June 4, 2007
Proof how truly annoying Fran Drescher's schtick can be. I want to gouge out my own eyes when I hear this woman speak.
April 25, 2007
a very bad bad movie... that I thought was cute. Did what it was set up to do. But nothing we haven't seen before.
May 21, 2007
OK, so it's a little sappy, but it's a terrific movie for Mom's and their teenaged daughters. Timothy Dalton is rather appealing in this movie, as well.
March 13, 2007
I wish Fran Drescher would do more movies! This is so fun and cute! A wonderful twist on the timeless "Beauty & the Beast" esk story.
March 12, 2007
Oh, man, one of the corniest movies ever but I love it SO much! Fran Drescher is really adorable. It's sweet and cute.
