Yesterday I ventured to the movie theatre to see Beastly starring Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens. I have not read the book but from what I saw from the commercials, it looked pretty good. Sadly, it wasn't. The movie was actually quite boring at times. Here is the summary from World Movie Summary:
A modern-day take on the “Beauty and the Beast” tale where a New York teen is transformed into a hideous monster in order to find true love.
The entire script was cheesy with cliche lines in every scene. I also feel they could have made a way better love connection between "Hunter" and Lindy. As for the acting it was...not so great. I am not a fan of Vanessa and thought her acting was very poor. Alex was somewhat better but still not what I expected. I hear he was better in I Am Number 4, so maybe I'll check out that one next.
On the up side, I did get a few chuckles and the story line is really cute. It makes me wonder about the book. Hopefully it was better than the movie which is what I seem to be hearing. I'm still not quite sure if I want to read it. If I do, it will most likely be in the distant future.
