Chick Flick Friday - Beauty and the Beast

"Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme, Beauty and the Beast". Yes, I know, it's a Disney movie but hey, some of the greatest love stories are. There are so many things that I love about this movie, it's almost impossible to list them all.

The sto
ry of Belle coming to the Beast's enchanted castle as his prisoner and ending up breaking the spell cast upon him and returning him to a handsome prince...sigh. This story is just so entertaining that I can watch it again and again. The entire cast of characters are entertaining and the music will have you singing along.

Nick and I laugh the most at the Gaston character because he is just so ridiculous in his pursuit of Belle and his extreme ego. When Belle is cornered by Gaston and says "Gaston, you are positively Primeval!" and he says "Why thank you, Belle!" Good stuff.

Young or old, we can all relate to this story. Belle isn't your typical Disney princess - she is an ordinary girl, with real intelligence and even a little bit of attitude. So either grab your daughter, niece, granddaughter or just a bowl of popcorn and enjoy being a kid again for a little while because really, don't we all enjoy a little "beastliness" from our men while we play the beauty?
