Sometimes you just need to lay down the law. This is what I had to do with my two boys recently when I told them we were going to see Beauty and the Beast in 3D. They did not want to go because they felt it was a princess movie. Okay, it is a princess movie, but it’s such a good one.
The music is great. The animation is wonderful. And the story has a beast and a lot of dark and scary elements. I sold my boys on the darkand scary elements, but mainly they went because I told them they had to.
And of course Mom Knows Best and they had a great time.Actually, they really did have a great time and they loved the movie.
It didn’t hurt that we saw it at a screening at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood and Beauty and the Beast came on stage before the movie started. It also didn’t hurt that there was a funny, new animated short, Tangled Ever After, that played before the film.
Here’s a clip from Beauty and the Beast 3D that starts tomorrow for a limited engagement.
