Storyline

Beauty is the backbone of her family. Without her nothing is ever done and no one is ever on time. But when her father angers a beast living in an enchanted castle, Beauty takes his punishment. She leaves her family and lives in the castle where, for the first time in her life, she starts to think about what she really wants. With her host only appearing at supper time, Beauty finds her own ways to amuse herself, but at night she dreams of a lost prince who constantly asks for her help. Through her choices Beauty learns what is important and what wishing can accomplish. Written by Max Vaughn

Beauty: The question is what would I do without you? Without you, I'd have all this lovely time just to devote to myself. Someday... someday.
Oliver: If you had time for your self, Beauty, you wouldn't know what to do with it.
Beauty: [Insulted] I wouldn't?
Oliver: No, you're much too unselfish to enjoy it.

Beautiful Movie
9 August 2004 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

This was mine and my sister's favorite movie growing up. We used to watch it all the time and sing along and even act the scenes out sometimes. Despite what some reviewers said the music is wonderful, I wish there was a soundtrack out. And the movie is not dated at all. The sets and costumes are beautiful. And the script and the acting are both superb. I've always had a soft spot for Rebecca DeMorney since seeing this movie. She was perfect as Beauty and has a gorgeous singing voice. Same with John Savage. I'm twenty now and I still put the movie in now and then and am surprised that I still enjoy it as much as I did as a little girl. To me this movie is flawless!
