Okay, so the guy in Beastly isn’t really Beast enough at all for this re-telling of Beauty and the Beast. He looks like the lead singer in a punk shredder band. Where is the limp, the elephant man tumors, the true disfigurement? But they get points for playing and having a really nice cast, including Neil Patrick Harris. And seeing Mary Kate Olsen as a Goth actual witch is just somewhat brilliant. Anyway, it looks fun:
And this one, Get Low, well yes, it’s corn pone, but Bill Murray is there to keep things subversive. Plus, I like corn pone. I like sentimental village movies. Especially when they are funny, as this one seems to be. I like Duvall when he’s funny.
*Ha, fixed the problem! I’m slow but I’m steady.
