BEASTLY ( PG) ★ ★
Stars: Vanessa Hudgens, Alex Pettyfer
Available: Now on DVD and BD
THE ‘‘ pretty falling in love with ugly’’ formula is a good fit for the teen romance genre. It’s just a shame that this one is more beast than beauty. It follows a egotistical rich boy with a mean streak who cops an ugly curse which can only be lifted if he can get someone to fall in love with him for who he is on the inside – yuck! A ham-fisted take on the classic fairytale, it’s full of all the stuff teens and tweens love and everyone older sees as cheesy.
