Still shot from the movie: Beastly.

Get Our Full Review


Based on the fairytale Beauty and the Beast, popular playboy Kyle (Alex Pettyfer) has his good looks taken away by the spell of a witch (Mary-Kate Olsen). And he'll stay as ugly on the outside as he is on the inside unless he can find someone to fall in love with him. Perhaps that will be Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens), a girl capable of seeing beyond face value.

If you haven’t heard of the Lammily doll yet, I’m beginning to think you soon will. It’s one of those ideas that, the moment I saw it, I thought, “Why didn’t someone think of this sooner?” Good thing Nickolay Lamm did.
