Beastly's Film Synopsis: Let Us Count the Ways It Is Amazing

Posted by Courtney Ferguson on Fri, Feb 4, 2011 at 12:57 PM

You've gotta read the description for the movie Beastly:

I think his eyebrow says braci (?!)
  • I think his eyebrow says "braci" (?!)
"Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) is 17 and has it all-—he’s hot, popular, rich, and gets whatever he wants… but he also has a vicious cruel side, fueled by his obsession with the ‘in crowd’ and his contempt for those who don’t fit in. Prone to mocking and humiliating outcast classmates, he zeroes in on goth girl Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen), inviting her to the school’s extravagant environmental bash. Kendra accepts, and, true to form, Kyle blows her off in a particularly harsh fashion. She seeks revenge in the form of a spell that physically transforms him into someone unrecognizable-—and horribly unattractive. The only way to reverse the curse is to find someone who will love him in his new form-—a task he doesn’t think possible. Repulsed by his appearance, Kyle’s insensitive father (Peter Krause) banishes him to Brooklyn with a sympathetic housekeeper (Lisa Gay Hamilton) and blind tutor (Neil Patrick Harris). As Kyle ponders how to overcome the curse and get his old life back, he chances upon a drug addict in the act of killing a threatening dealer. Seizing the opportunity, Kyle promises the addict freedom and safety for his daughter Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens) if she will agree to live in Kyle’s Brooklyn home. Thus begins Kyle’s journey to discover true love."

NOW: Let's play "Count the Amazing Things in This Synopsis"!

I'll start. The phrase "extravagant environmental bash." There better be sustainable punch.

Your turn!
