Beauty and the Beast 3-D
(Animated/Family, G, 84 minutes)
That "tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme" returns to the screen, now in 3-D. But "Beauty and the Beast," the greatest animated film ever made and one of the screen's great musicals, hardly needs this sort of sprucing up. But there's marvelous new depth of field to the images - flowers or rain or snow in the foreground - in many scenes. Details from the background pop out more and 3-D gives Gaston's riotous bar brawl an in-your-face quality.
Rating: Four stars
Info for Parents: Rated G
