In all fairness...we weren't exactly tickled pink about watching this!
What a pleasant surprise...it's not bad at all.
Let's face it, the story makes absolutely no sense at all...and, those songs! Not exactly toe-tapping, karaoke faves!
But...they threw money at this...and it stuck (in places).
The much-hyped 'gay' bit...in fact, there are two outre 'gay' bits involving a rather brutish musketeer...but, 'LaFou' - who is as camp as bejewelled tits - injects 'gay' bits into every scene he's in! Josh Gad certainly revels in his role...but, as a nod to modernity [by the Disney execs]...well, let's just say they still have quite a way to go...it's just a wee bit too reminiscent of those Hollywood sissy characters...a figure of [poking] fun!
Take it as it is...A Disney extravaganza...and, a thoroughly enjoyable time will be had by all!
Disney's animated classic takes on a new form, with a widened mythology and an all-star cast. A young prince, imprisoned in the form of a beast, can be freed only by true love. What may be his only opportunity arrives when he meets Belle, the only human girl to ever visit the castle since it was enchanted.
