Tips for Tuesday - Movies: Beauty and the Beast
Mom - Today I am also recommending the live action Beauty and the Beast. It is a great movie for anyone because it is like a lot of different kinds of movies rolled into one, and therefore it has something that will appeal to almost everyone. It is has action, it has romance, it has humor, and it has just enough of each. It has all the best songs from the animated movie and/or the Broadway show including Belle, Gaston, and the title song plus additional songs. Of course, there are songs from the stage show at least that are left out, but I don't think the movie misses anything without those songs. The casting is great starting with Emma Watson who makes a lovely Belle right on through the cast. The movie is similar enough to the original animated movie and the Broadway show to have maintained what was good about them and different enough to stand on its own. All in all , it is just a well put together and very entertaining movie.
