Unfortunately, the more "real" the movie tries to make everything appear, the harder it becomes to ignore that the necessity to their falling in love isn't particularly romantic
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Small shortcomings aside, Beauty and the Beast is a splendid remake. Even today, its themes regarding finding love and beauty from within a person and not for social status and appearances resonate
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

From the "poor provincial town" to the dazzling ballroom, the movie is a larger-than-life feast for the eyes. Emma Watson's Belle is smart, progressive and"not a princess."

The retelling stays true to the animated classic...
November 4, 2017
Director Bill Condon's remake improves on the original in some ways while retaining the silver screen magic, spectacle and nostalgic kick necessary for fans to fall in love all over again.

What essentially works for 'Beauty and the Beast' is its relevance.

Beauty & The Beast is every bit as good and joyous as its original inspiration. A must watch for sure.

Kline is sweetly spot-on as Belle's father, Evans is a hoot as Gaston, and Josh Gad steals almost every scene he's in as his sidekick, LeFou, a man wrestling -- very quietly and unbeknownst even to himself -- with his own sexuality.

It's all ups and downs and I can't emphasize enough that the Beast is a horrifying pile of animated taxidermy.

This is old-school Hollywood lavish.

... the story still possesses the power to charm and teach on a subtle level.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Sure, there's part of me that wanted Belle to run off with all the books and leave her heart-broken beastly kidnapper to wallow for an eternity, but even I got caught up in the Disney magic of it all and accepted its inevitable happy ending.

Manages to exactly replicate 90% of what's in the 1991 animated film while also managing to make all of it at least slightly terrible.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

This [Beauty and the] Beast is darker in tone and brighter in wit, if not nearly as romantically transporting as the Oscar-winning original.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

This remake has been done with love and attention to detail.

The cinematography, aided by drones, shines forth from on high whether over dances or the land. The fairy-dusted costumes are fabulous. But, most of all, the moral holds true that love transcends looks.
August 28, 2017
By acknowledging the stranger aspects of the original, Bill Condon's live-action adaptation is an appropriately uncomfortable delight.
August 22, 2017
I wouldn't say that Condon and company achieve perfection, but they've provided a lively, entertaining version of Disney's animated entry from the 1990s
August 21, 2017
The one unforgivable flaw of resurrecting Beauty and the Beast in 2017 is that we've already had another movie handle the monster love story better. It's called Shrek.
August 10, 2017
The live-action remake of the 1991 Disney classic hits all the right nostalgic notes - if only it dared to take a few more risks.
