There is entertainment to be had here and I think as a whole it is a harmless movie but not for me. They could have at least got competent singers

The story itself will always be fundamentally anti-feminist (...) [b]ut the efforts to update [it] to better suit a contemporary sensibility are acknowledged and appreciated.

As the whole, I feel more warmth and chemistry between the leads in the animated film. But this film should still do well for those who are fans of the actors and the story.

Beauty and the Beast will come as a colossal disappointment, bringing back into focus an elephant-sized question that nostalgia doesn't want us to answer: what exactly is the point of these live-action reimaginings?

Beauty and the Beast is a classic for a reason, and while this remake might not achieve the same beloved heights as its predecessor, it's still a lovely film that will doubtless enchant and captivate a whole new generation.

Despite some small missteps along the way, though, the bottom line is the new Beauty and the Beast is still magical.

The tale as old as time is enchanting as ever.

While there is no real need to retell one of Disney's best animated features, this version was intriguing enough to warrant the visit.

There's a freshness to this version and through the newfound darkness and shadows, the movie is feel-good and you'll leave humming the iconic songs once more.

A wonderful compliment to all that preceded it, fleshing out the story and connecting plotpoints that were overlooked before.

A virtual clone of the 1991 animated feature, with a few added scenes and songs that strengthen rather than detract.

The first of this new live-action Disney fairytale cycle that's not even pretending that there was some other compelling reason for a remake other than to score a big box-office off of generational nostalgia

If you're looking for something that is even the slightest bit different from the animated version, you'll be underwhelmed by the familiarity of the film's construction while dazzled by the stunning visual beauty.

Condon's Beauty and the Beast delivers a strong female lead, but fails to break out of its nostalgic trappings.

There seemed to be little reason to remake a film so vital to Disney's history. If the original film was a tale as old as time, this new version is a tale as old as nostalgia.

Diehard fans who have watched the classic over and over again growing up will take issue with some of the most classic shots, moments, and even dialogue from the original not making it into the film.

This remake squeaks by because it does a decent amount of justice to the original, and since the original is a masterpiece... well, your heart can't help but melt, can it?

Take your niece, your daughter your next door neighbor's daughter, heck your mom -- and relive this tale as old as time. Believe me, no one will be gloomy or complaining while the flatware's entertaining.
