Beastly by Daniel Barnz, 2011 (PG-13)

with Alex Pettyfer, Vanessa Hudgens, Neil Patrick Harris, Dakota Johnson (The Five-Year Engagement, The Social Network), Erik Knudsen, Mary-Kate Olsen, Peter Krause, Lisa Gay Hamilton (Take Shelter, Jackie Brown), David Francis

After arrogant teenager Kyle (Alex Pettyfer) humiliates a Goth classmate (Mary-Kate Olsen), she puts a curse on him that transforms him from a hunk into a hideous creature. To break the hex, Kyle must find someone who loves him for what he's become. Living with a housekeeper after his heartless father (Peter Krause) throws him out, he connects with an addict's daughter (Vanessa Hudgens) in this contemporary take on Beauty and the Beast.

Alex Pettyfer is a very handsome man, which makes the movie very pleasant to watch, even transformed as he is. Then the story is simple, with some comical moments of Neil Patrick Harris, who is pretty much himself, essentially following the fairy tale in the "90210" style. It is cute... Maybe I got a little too soft here, must be Pettyfer...
