A Sweet Change: Beaty is the Beast
Reviewed in the United States on June 18, 2016
Cheesy. Predictable. Pretentious. I guess that's the kind of late-night movie I enjoy.
With the feel of a made for TV Hallmark special that the whole family can watch, this lighthearted film is pleasantly enjoyable. I didn't become grossly involved in character's lives, nor did I change as a human being because of some value the creators compelled me to grasp. Instead, I just lay back, snuggled under covers, and watched the story unravel, knowing exactly what I'd find around the next corner. Sure, sometimes I thought, "Ya, right," like when the main character is hobbling around, yet, incredibly, kneels on the floor, sitting on her sprained ankle, but that's okay. Movies of this type aren't made for perfect realism or life changing lessons; they're made simply to enjoy, and that's what I did.
Will the the Beauty change the Beast, or is the Beauty actually the Beast who must change? Uh, yes, I gave it away in my title, but so did the creators. Yes, it's that predictable.
If you're watching in expectation of deeply moving drama, comedy, love story, or other, this isn't it. If you're looking for a clean, foul-language-free, nudity-free, light, silly movie, you will love it!
