Whether or not you give a mouse dropping about 3D (and Disney has done a smashing job on the refit), what a treat it is to see ‘Beauty and the Beast’ again. It was among the studio’s crop of early 1990s hits, but in look and feel harks back to the Disney glory days, delivering a rush of sunnily confident, cockle-warming innocence. ‘Be nice and nice things will happen’ is the message, as plucky heroine Belle dodges salivating wolves to rescue her dad from the Beast’s castle. It’s witty and charming, with glorious Busby Berkeley-style numbers. And for sheer inventiveness you can’t beat the talking objects in the castle: Mrs Pots, the cockney teapot and her chinaware brood; a stagecoach that scuttles like a spider; the footstool dog waggling his tassels. Magic.

One of the best Disney movies ever made. What's not to like about it?

Enjoyed as NEVER before due to AMAZING 3D. Pushes it, for the first time to a 5 star, just the third I've given (Bad Lieutenant, Drive) in two years posting.

Oh what a joy! From when Disney really knew how to make brilliant cartoons. Every bit as good as the review says. The must see family film of the year thus far,
