Storyline Heading
Kyle Kingson is 17 and has it all but he also has a vicious cruel side, fueled by his obsession with the 'in crowd' and his contempt for those who don't fit in. He finally targets the wrong person: Goth girl classmate Kendra who seeks revenge in the form of a spell that physically transforms him into someone unrecognizable - and horribly unattractive. The only way to reverse the curse is to find someone who will love him in his new form.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Beastly was made with tween girls in mind. It's the kind of love story a viewer can believe in when she is indiscriminating enough to ignore bad acting, bad writing, and mediocre filmmaking.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average It's dogged by awkward dialogue, a ridiculous plot and lackluster performances, especially by the leads,...

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) has it all – looks, intelligence, wealth and opportunity – and a wicked cruel streak. Prone to mocking and humiliating "aggressively unattractive” classmates, he zeroes in on Goth classmate Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen), inviting her to the school's extravagant environmental bash. Kendra accepts, and, true to form, Kyle blows her off in a particularly savage fashion. She retaliates by casting a spell that physically transforms him into everything he despises. Enraged by his horrible and unrecognizable appearance he confronts Kendra and learns that the only solution to the curse is to find someone that will love him as he is – a task he considers impossible.

Repulsed by his appearance, Kyle's callous father (Peter Krause) banishes him to Brooklyn with a sympathetic housekeeper (LisaGay Hamilton) and blind tutor (Neil Patrick Harris). As Kyle ponders how to overcome the curse and get his old life back, he chances upon a drug addict in the act of killing a threatening dealer. Seizing the opportunity, Kyle promises the addict freedom and safety for his daughter Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens) if she will consent to live in Kyle's Brooklyn home.
