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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Disney has developed a winning formula by hiring talented directors that can take their beloved classics and turn them into live action masterpieces.

The film doesn't need to be given a dark twist like 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman; as with every fairytale, there's enough darkness in this story to begin with.
April 24, 2017
The only believable reason this classic was remade was for love of money, but it does look fantastic doing it... the original animated film is still your best bet.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

I loved Beauty and the Beast, had a smile on my face the entire time. Don't miss it.

This live-action 'Beauty and the Beast' is a special gift to movie musical fans. As old as time this tale may be. Now 'Evermore' will stay with me.
April 14, 2017
Overall, Beauty and the Beast is exactly what you want from a classic Disney film.
