Or maybe it means that we see people as ugly or beautiful dependent upon how we feel about them and what we see inside them.

Quite right about the ginger beer thing. Next, they'll be expecting American children to relate to children who go to a British boarding school and get excited about butter beer.

Seriously though, I agree with you about the statement on the value of physical beauty. Thankfully, we have classics like "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Hunchback of Notre Dame".

You're dead wrong here. I'm not a big fan of this movie, but the blemishes disappearing was meant to symbolize the kids stopped caring about what she looked like. Basically what Abby said.
