Fairy tales don't always get a sugary-sweet happy ending. Just look at the disappointing reviews and box-office numbers for "Red Riding Hood" (pictured) and "Beastly." Sure, Beauty fell in love with the Beast and we're sure Red was able to defeat the wolf, but in Hollywood terms, these two teen angst re-tellings flopped. Critics were less than enchanted, giving "Beastly" a 20% on Rottentomatoes.com and "Red Riding Hood" a dismal 12%. Meanwhile, both films debuted at a weak No. 3 at the box office and then petered out.
