Good lord.


I mean, what must the folks at the Nabisco R&D lab have been smoking to come up with this???

I'll just go with Another Hot Guy, thank you very much. He looks much more tasty.

I haven't been interested in Disney's live-action remakes of its classic animated films. Disney, after all, was founded on animation, and these modern-day reinterpretations seem like nothing more than a way to make even more money through recycling. But the live-action edition of "Beauty and the Beast" (which opens March 17) may make me change my mind.

In a word, everything I've seen about the film makes me think it will be fabulous. Necessary? Not at all. But I believe that Disney realized how important this was, even deferring to some of director Bill Condon's wishes. According to IMDB, Disney wasn't even going to make the live-action version a musical until Condon made them see the light. And the company certainly didn't hold back on the budget. This thing is a lavish recreation of the original film from top to bottom (and that couldn't have been cheap).

I'm pretty sure I'll be picking up a ticket for this one. And unless I'm wrong, I don't think I'll be the only one. Disney looks likely to make a boatload of money (again) on this.

And now, Another Hot Guy.
