Beauty and the Beast (1991)


Directed by: Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise

Starring: Paige O’Hara, Robby Benson, Richard White, Jerry Orbach, Angela Lansbury, David Ogden Stiers, Bradley Pierce, Jesse Corti, and Rex Everhart

When a prince (Robby Benson) denies an old beggar woman shelter for the night in his castle, he pays the ultimate price.  The woman happens to be an enchantress and curses the prince by turning him into an unsightly Beast and turning his servants into an assortment of household items.  The enchantress also gives the Beast a rose.  When the rose petals have all fallen off some time after his twenty-first birthday, the prince will be cursed to remain the Beast forever.  Before the petals fall off, the Beast must love and be loved in return by another.  A decade later, an inventor named Maurice (Rex Everhart) gets lost and stumbles upon the castle.  The Beast then imprisons him.  Soon after, a beautiful woman named Belle (Paige O’Hara) arrives at the Beast’s castle to save her father.  Instead, she starts to develop feelings for the Beast, who now has a chance to become human again.

Beauty and the Beast is easily the most romantic animated film of all time.  With classic tunes and elegance unrivaled by any other, this Disney film is one to watch.  Beauty and the Beast passes the Sobriety Test with flying colors.  This dazzling and charming romance gets a sober rating.
