News & Interviews for The Beautician and the Beast
Critic Reviews for The Beautician and the Beast
Manages to be sweet and likable, largely because Kwapis directs the actors well and treats the sub-Lubitsch material as if he actually believed in it.
Listening to Fran Drescher's nasal squawk for an entire movie is the price you'll pay to see The Beautician and the Beast. Imagine having your ear canal scoured with Brillo. Only more abrasive.
Cheesy, multi-accented culture-clash comedy that's seldom funny
As hokey and banal as a sitcom, with predictable culture-clash gags and fairly flat one-liners.
A charming surprise
Audience Reviews for The Beautician and the Beast
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.
If you like Fran you'll like this if not stay away.
