Alex Pettyfer of ‘I Am Number Four’ and ‘Beastly’ might make a young adult lit adaptation hat trick with Gary Ross’s ‘The Hunger Games’.
It would have made twice as much if Jon Lovitz had been voicing the lead role.
I was about halfway to recommending this one before it wussed out.
Beastly is basically the retelling of Beauty and the Beast, except the beast in question is just a bald dude with a bunch of facial tattoos. I’m not sure that really qualifies as beastly. People pay to have that sh*t done.
As far as up-and-coming actresses go, Beastly actress Vanessa Hudgens is a weird case.
We’ve covered Beastly before, so I’ll be brief on the plot specifics. A handsome, 25-year old high school student is cursed to look like a Henna-tattooed penis and must break the spell by discovering inner beauty.
Beastly is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast by way of Gossip Girl. Mary-Kate Olsen plays a witch who curses a rich, popular, good-looking classmate to look all gross and veiny — a reflection of the dick he is on the inside. He's then banished to Brooklyn where the rest of the minorities uglies live. In order to break the curse, he has to find someone, who despite his penile appearance, will sext him with naked pictures of herself. Enter Vanessa Hudgens.Find out what really matters underneath after the jump.
