Beauty and the Beast
Definitely a good Beast, but Belle isn't a Beauty.
I have always had a soft spot for Beauty and the Beast - it's a good story and it's the basis for both Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Phantom of the Opera. Plus, I think the Disney movie is the best mainstream animation they've done. And I know, I know, Hunchback and Black Cauldron are their darkest, but this one is the only BIG movie they've done that appeals. "But what's wrong with Hercules?" you say. "What about Mulan or Snow White?"
I have seven words for you.
It. Is. Not. Beauty and the Beast.
