Critic Reviews of "Beastly"Time OutApril 20, 2011
'Beastly' is a special brand of hogwash: a fairy tale that preaches inner beauty while refusing to obscure the looks of its doomed hero.AV ClubApril 04, 2011
In every aspect, from story to tone to characterization to visual aesthetic, it's laughably perfunctory, as though everyone involved were too embarrassed to give it more than a half-ironic token effort.NewsdayMarch 25, 2011
Beneath it all, however, is a movie with a good heart.Entertainment WeeklyMarch 05, 2011
Stunningly bad.Boxoffice MagazineMarch 04, 2011
Teens convinced that a pimple will kill their social life will find Beastly bracingly honest. It's the cynicism, not the phoned-in uplift, that works in this JV Grand Guignol.Newark Star-LedgerMarch 04, 2011
For a fable about a magical curse, "Beastly" is strangely earthbound. And once it starts, it just seems to go on sappily ever after.We Got This CoveredJune 02, 2013
So this isn't a great re-imagining of the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, but Beastly does have mass tweener appeal.Movie NationJanuary 28, 2013
Under-rated.Movie TalkAugust 31, 2011
Daniel Barnz's movie certainly doesn't have any inner depth behind its slick surface, but Neil Patrick Harris's nifty wisecracks, Mary-Kate Olsen's spooky glares and the brisk pacing means that Beastly isn't quite as hideous as you might imagineDigital SpyJuly 14, 2011
Hudgens is a likeable on-screen presence, Olsen a complete riot, and Pettyfer teases teeny bits of a performance as a genuinely unpleasant baddie that could be the making of him one day, should the right script come along.Movies.comJune 03, 2011
Beauty and the blech.CinemaDopeMay 04, 2011
... tone deaf (do students today really say "hurl chunks" and "Too cool for school"?), predictably plotted, filled with drippy love songs that would embarrass Bryan Ferry.
