Alex Pettyfer's good looks helped him get cast in "I Am Number Four," but he has to play against them in this modernization of "Beauty and the Beast."
Here, he's a privileged teen whose mistreatment of a classmate (Mary-Kate Olsen, she of "Full House" in her younger years) prompts her to literally cast a curse that alters his appearance in a horrifying way. The only way he can break it is to find someone who will love him no matter how he looks. Vanessa Hudgens ("High School Musical") plays the likeliest candidate. Neil Patrick Harris also stars. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; deleted scenes; alternate ending; music video. ** (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
