When you take on a classic like Beauty and the Beast for a live action movie which was also nominated for the Best Picture by the Academy you HAVE to make sure that the spirit of the original remains intact even if you can't make it as good. I know that one has to tweak a few little things to make it appropriate not just for the new generation but also as a live action movie though without making it look cheesy or over the top... which quite sadly was not the case with this one... it was directed by an Oscar winning director (who also directed a twilight movie which sucks) and a studio that has recently produced better than the original adaptation of the jungle book which I really love... so one wonders what must have gone wrong... that I think we will find out later but for now if I have to say something positive about this movie it would be its visual effects which were quite gorgeous if not entirely believable, the design of the CGI characters which were a reminiscence of the original ones, Belle played by Emma Watson though not as great as I wanted her to be, seems to have done her job. And even if the songs didn't flow as greatly with the story as it did before, you could still enjoy them. The choreography, set design and the costumes also stole the show along with the Humour because of its talented cast even if it seemed a little cheesy at places, it managed to make me laugh (especially Gaston) hence making it a better movie than it really was... I will give it a 7/10...

P.S.- You may enjoy it because of the nostalgia factor.
