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

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."

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.

... the story still possesses the power to charm and teach on a subtle level.

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.

This [Beauty and the] Beast is darker in tone and brighter in wit, if not nearly as romantically transporting as the Oscar-winning original.

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.

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
June 26, 2017
The new Beauty and the Beast is, in a word, magical. It's innovative and whimsical, and also close enough to the 1991 release that fans will not be disappointed.
June 23, 2017
This new version of Beauty and the Beast is fun, exciting to watch, and beautiful to look at, every bit as enjoyable as its animated predecessor. But it's also still every bit as problematic, even with new-and-improved trappings.
June 15, 2017
While [Disney's] Oscar winning animated version reigns supreme, Bill Condon manages to deliver his own interpretation that tweaks the tale here and there for new audiences with a great effect.
June 1, 2017
Beauty and the Beast is a charming movie that uses the talents of its lead actors to successfully recreate and redesign one of its classic stories.
May 31, 2017
Disney has developed a winning formula by hiring talented directors that can take their beloved classics and turn them into live action masterpieces.
