20 Highest-Grossing Teen Romance Movies
Beastly is basically a riff on Beauty and the Beast. The issue with this idea is that Beauty and the Beast is essentially a perfect movie, which makes it difficult to improve on. The film is a modern re-telling, though, which means that the young man at the film’s center is cursed by a fellow student he’s mean to.
From there, we see him fall in love with another woman, and realize how to be a better person as a result. It’s the classic story told anew. Whatever you felt about the movie, it actually managed to scrape by fairly decent returns at the box office.
