Beastly, a modern day Beauty and The Beast, starring Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens, hit theatres on March 4, 2011. And Kidzworld has the review!

Being Beautiful

Kyle Kingston (Alex Pettyfer) believed that how good looking you are is directly proportional to how much other people like you. Living with that mindset, he kept himself in shape, and disregarded anyone he thought was less than beautiful. He was good looking, and he knew it.

The Curse

After winning the election for class president, his ego was at an all time high. And the school “witch”—Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen)—decided to bring him down to size. She cast a spell, turning him into a beast. He had one year to find someone to love him, or he’d stay a beast forever.

Living in Exile

Replused by his son’s new look, Kyle’s wealthy father buys a house where Kyle can hide away, with only the housekeeper and a blind live-in tutor (Neil Patrick Harris) as company. For months Kyle lives in exile. But one night, while going for a walk, he spots Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens), a girl from his high school. He follows her, watches her (some might say "stalks" her). And learns that her life is dangerous. Her dad is a drug addict.

The Transformation

One night, Kyle intercepts a drug deal gone bad to rescue Lindy. When her father kills a man, Kyle threatens to tell the police. In exchange for his silence, Kyle requests that he let Lindy come and live with him. At first Lindy is miserable. And showering her with presents doesn’t seem to brighten her mood. But as Kyle learns to use his brain, and begins to change his outlook on life and love, he and Lindy form a bond. But will his efforts be enough? Could Lindy ever love a beast?

The Bottom Line

It’s rare when a movie outshines its book counterpart. But Beastly is a perfect example of that. The film adaptation of Alex Flinn’s Beastly is an amazing story of friendship, love and transformation. We recommend that everyone see (or read) Beastly!
