Fairly dismal fairytale fayre

Beastly review 

What’s more hideous: Alex Pettyfer’s scarred face, or Daniel Barnz’s mess of a movie?

In truth, even if the make-up weren’t so shoddy, there’d still be no contest. Pettyfer is an obnoxious teen in this rehash of Beauty And The Beast for the Twilight generation.

Despite opportunities to ground the fairytale in reality, the story’s magical elements are inexplicably retained – and laughably administered – by Mary-Kate Olsen.

Neil Patrick Harris may raise a brief smile, or make you flick over to How I Met Your Mother instead.
