Vanessa Hudgens, Alex Pettyfer and Neil Patrick Harris in Beastly trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The trailer for BEASTLY has a very MTV-feel to it. Maybe it’s because of Vanessa Hudgens, but it just seems very “tween” to me. The movie is a modern day telling of Beauty and the Beast where a handsome, successful man gets cursed and the only way he can break the curse is if he finds a woman to love him for who he is and not for what he looks like. Vanessa Hudgens, Alex Pettyfer (remember his name), Neil Patrick Harris and Mary-Kate Olsen star in the film directed by Daniel Barnz.
These movies have their fans and target audience, but what the heck is Neil Patrick Harris doing in this? Has anyone told him that America loves him and he should be carrying his own films, not playing second fiddle to Disney teenagers? Again, nothing against this film, because I actually think it looks decent, but NPH needs a starring role.
