    Compared to The Little Mermaid or Aladdin, it feels overbearingly classical, albeit with a very modern moral.

    My absolute favorite Disney film...and that will never change. Beautifully animated, wonderful songs, lots of laughs, plenty of scares, amazing characters and character designs. So much to love about this film. It's also no wonder that it was the first animated film to be nominated for Best Picture...and only two animated films have gotten that same distinction since, "Up" and "Toy Story 3" (and that was only after the Academy increased the number of nominees in the category from five to up to ten).

    I'm also looking forward to Disney's upcoming live-action version as well as Christophe Gans' version.

    After a whole bottle of Whiskey I finally found the key to my liking for Beauty and the Beast. What a wondrous little story of love. Love rising above all superficiality.

    And you can't beat Gaston. That guy is a sexist, archaic narcissus. But, for the millionth time the world is proven that if you present yourself well and be entertaining. You can get away with being a cunt. That guy could club a newborn to death in the very…

    Like so many movies I've seen during my childhood, Beauty and the Beast is one that really left a lasting impression on me. Belle was a Disney princess you could look up to. She was smart, independent and selfless. Her main goal wasn’t to find a prince or find love, she even avoided the advances of Gaston, even though he was the town “hunk” and all the other women swooned over him. She saw through people and could see who…

    A great movie, like all from the Disney Renaissance. Belle's character is more a heroine than a traditional Disney princess.

    Charming, lovely and beautiful, Beauty and the Beast is probably the best of Disney's hand drawn animation. The musical numbers and the overall romance are excellent.

    The best film of the Disney renaissance of the late 80s and 90s.

    Deducting half a star because most of the principals don't have a french accent.

    Also,, how truly terrifying is Gaston? His drive and motivation is nothing more than psychotic, patriarchal pride and expectations to control a woman that will never love him.

    Arguably, the finest film in Disney's long animated history, Beauty and the Beast impresses with its stunning animation, indelible charm and enduring message. The first aspect combines cutting-edge CGI animation, a dark palate and vivid bright colours in creating an atmospheric and beautiful visual scheme. The charm comes from the enchanted characters whose light presence balance the Gothic and tragic underpinnings of the story. Finally, the message of loving someone beyond the exterior self still resonates in today's superficial celebrity obsessed culture. It is punctuated by Belle, the strongest female character in Disney's Princess cannon.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Not an accurate representation of Stockholm Syndrome: she only starts to like him when he stops being a jerk and when he offers to free her she leaves immediately.

    “Beauty and the Beast” is a Disney animation with a cult status. It’s the first animation to ever be nominated for an Academy Award in the category Best Picture. The movie has all the elements to enchant young and old: romance, tension, drama, humor and music. The makers created a magical world.

    The original story dates from the 16th century. The theme is that real beauty is deep inside. Belle is the prettiest girl in her village, but she is…
