In retellings of the "Beauty and the Beast" fairytale, the main female character (the "beauty" of the title) often (though not always) has a name that actually means "beauty" or some variation thereof. For instance, in both the 1946 Jean Cocteau version and the 1991 animated Disney musical, that character's first name is "Belle," the French word for "beautiful." In this version, the main female character's first name is "Lindy," a variation on the name "Linda," which is also the Spanish and Portuguese word for "pretty." See more »
Will refers to a 1954 movie "Devil Girl from Mars," saying that it is about an alien that wanted to abduct teenage girls for breeding stock. The actual movie Devil Girl from Mars has a female alien abducting men for breeding stock. See more »
The plot was great, being though it was the modern take on beauty and the beast. However, the script was terrible. Everything seemed so rushed.
Kyle wasn't even arrogant long enough. He made one or two rude comments and next thing you know he turned beastly. In fact I didn't realize he was being rude until like seconds to minutes later. That's how cheesy his lines were. And on top of that, he started falling in love with her before he was turned beastly which totally contradicts the whole point of him being that way. He's supposed to be ugly inside and out.
Liddy or, whatever her name is, wasn't turned off by him like Belle was in the animated version. She couldn't stand him whereas Liddy liked him from the beginning. She called him a jerk once but that didn't even sound convincing. So corny. The fight scene where Kyle calls himself saving her was so bad I was nearly in tears from laughing. What a shame because the concept of the movie was so awesome and this could've been a really great movie.
Bottom line, it was a waste of money, gas and time. I could've waited until this came out on Netflix. Sorry but this movie was just terrible!
