Short summary

In a twist on the classic Beauty and the Beast tale, Isabelle is all beauty--on the outside. A glamour-queen socialite, she spends her days spoiling herself and spending money like it's going out of style. When Isabelle injures herself and gets lost in an isolated winter land, she stumbles on the solitude of Jeremy, a man hiding from both the world and his past. He's the first person to put Isabelle in her place, and Isabelle realizes she might be more beast than she wants to admit. Through Jeremy's influence, she begins to change--and fall in love. But will she revert to the beast and give up her chance at real love when she returns home?

    I loved this film. It was adorable. Brad Johnson was gorgeous as the leading man and the two leads had good chemistry. It was romantic

    While it was barely (almost nothing like) Beauty and the Beast, it was lovely

    I'm a sucker for movies like these and big budget Hollywood just don't make them anymore. They're all lewd jokes and sex and violence so it's wonderful to see a romantic and touching movie about falling in love.

    I could always watch movies like these so it's a joy to find a surprise like this that I can own and watch again and again and still enjoy it. I wish they could just make more movies with likable leads and a nice story everyone can enjoy, but, they just don't seem to anymore

    I love a good love story and like the character arcs of the two main characters. I think that she would have been better on skis since the rich ski all the time. I grew up with rich people so that is unrealistic. As behavior goes, she is not the worst person in the movie. Everyone in the movie is unkind at times and some of the dialogue proves that other people who seem to be good people can also be unkind and say unkind things. Another thing, she said that she makes appearances at charity events. The last charity event she went to was not what a rich person calls a charity event but she worked at a soup kitchen. That is not what the rich mean by a charity event. The foundation. What is that? Do they just work at soup kitchens? or do they head up donations for the poor? But it was great seeing the two main characters change and fall for each other. Well, it has many good points.

    I've been fairly impressed with the Hallmark movies, but this one was a real bomb. Predicable and contrived, the only thing left was to invest in the main characters. Isabelle, the "beautiful beast" was neither. She was just whiny, selfish, and elitist. The amount of time it takes for her to wake up (not a spoiler, because you know it's going to happen) is unrealistically short.

    There's just way too much suspension of reality here. And the pacing makes us see much more of the bad than the good, which leaves unresolved aspects of the ending. Trust me-skip this one.

    A fairly predictable movie, but it's probably what you wanted to see if you tuned it in. And it serves its purpose and satisfies your "feel good movie" craving. It works. Shona Kay is stunning of course and delivers a solid performance here.

    My only complaint is the sound. The music overpowers the dialog constantly. In many scenes, changing camera angles introduced a noticeable echo mid sentence. In short, the sound quality is terrible.

    It's a lightweight, fairly decent movie if you like powderpuff pieces about horrible, vacuous, unpleasant, unkind, rich women who change the habits of a lifetime within a few weeks, all because they find the right man (and maybe god), this is the movie for you.

    The acting is passable, although not wonderful. The female lead seems several years too old for the role and for her behaviour. Also it would have been nice if someone had told her to cut the last 6 inches of dry, split ends from her hair.

    I was going to give it 4 stars but took off 2 of them because too much god at the end.
