If i was to watch this film for the first time as an adult i would probably come up with a whole heap of complaints. However, its buried in a little girls heart who still laughs at talking furniture's jokes. I know Pixar (among others) have evolved and provided us with a much more contemporary fairy story (but you just can't beat the old ones?) no its not that its the story of a girl being caught between a marriage that looks good on paper or going to love (and tame) a beast. its not exactly feminism, the foundations of the story are much more brutal & it does hold the possibility of engendering girls with the saying "sometimes its hard to be a woman". But Belle will always be my heroine & i truly do ove angela lansbury (especially when she plays the part of a teapot). I don't particularly like the beast (is it just me who thinks he looks better as a beast than a man?) but Gaston's character & humor make up for a lousy hero.
