When Kyle is elected representative of the students, he plays a prank on the outcast Kendra, who has a reputation as a witch: he invites her to a party and humiliates her in front of their classmates. However, Kendra curses him with a spell that makes Kyle as ugly as his soul. Further, she tells him that if he does not find anyone who loves him within a year, he will be doomed to that appearance forever. When Kyle’s father, Rob Kingson, sees him, he takes Kyle to specialists but the doctors do not know what to do, so Rob hides Kyle in an apartment with a maid and a blind tutor. When Kyle sees his mate Lindy on the streets, he saves her from a dangerous drug dealer and he brings her to his apartment to protect her. Now his only hope is that Lindy will fall in love with him.
Plot: A curse transforms a handsome and arrogant young man into everything he detests in this contemporary retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Wealthy Kyle Kingson has everything a teenager could want in life, but he still gets off on humiliating the weaker and less attractive. When Kyle invites his misfit classmate Kendra to an environmental rally at their school, she questions his motivations but reluctantly accepts. Later, Kyle blows Kendra off, prompting the spurned goth girl to cast a dark spell on the swaggering egotist.

Beauty and the…. Now thats what I call a Beast
This is one of the cleverest adaptations of a classic fable since “The Nutty Professor” (Jekyll & Hyde). Here in “Beastly” we have an adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast” set in contemporary New York and revolving around the image-obsessed youth of a fashionable High School in the trendy urban district. I know, right? Awesome premise. The execution may not be quite as awesome, but ultimately I think it’s a great flick to watch when you’re in the mood for a creative morality play.
What makes it work is the depiction of the “Beast”. I won’t ruin it for you (if the movie posters haven’t already), but here, unlike other tellings of the tale which portray the Beast as a majestic animal, we get a Beast who is not only “ugly” in terms of scars and bad skin, but more importantly he is made to look like an outcast. He doesn’t look like a literal beast/monster, but instead he looks very human but the kind of human who would make you cross the street to avoid.
In that respect it turns the microscope on ourselves because we the audience are repulsed without any justification. I thought this was a fantastic starting point.
The rest of the film may feel sort of like a predictable teen romance, without much tension or or peril, but it keeps our attention and gives us thoughts which we can apply directly to our lives, unlike typical enchanted fairytales which we approach as pure fantasy.
Beyond the predictable, there’s one character who really livened things up and I wish there were more of him: “Will” played by Neil Patrick Harris (yes! Doogie Howser M.D.). Will plays the role of the Beast’s sarcastic, wisecracking teacher. This gives the story an element of humor and wisdom at the same time, as Will is sort of the Beast’s “Mr. Miagi”.
“Beastly” is mostly family-friendly (PG-13 due to some violence and a bit of crude language, though I don’t remember hearing any outright profanity). So don’t expect a harsh, gritty drama. This film is definitely on the lighter side. Movies I would compare this to include: Penelope (2006) starring Christina Ricci as a girl with a pig snout, or maybe something like Practical Magic (1998) starring Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock as two witches looking for love in a small town. If you like breezy supernatural romances, definitely check this out.
