Movie Reviews

Now that is a New Low!
Good Ole Boy | Rural AZ United States | 11/08/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I just noticed that "Beauty and the Beast: A Latter-Day Tale" is also marketed as "Beauty and the Beast: A Christian Romance". "Turn Around: A Modern Day Alma The Younger Story" is also marketed as "Overcome: Based on the Conversion of Paul" The names are changed to appeal to members of the LDS Church and born-again christians, respectively.

I can only say, "Wow!" This is a new low for cynicism and exploitation. The faiths in question aren't the issue. The issue is that I hate a commercial firm using our faith to get into our wallets.

The LDS versions of the films and "Overcome" are released as from a studio called "Candlelight Media". WisenQuest is listed as the studio releasing "Belle and the Beast: A Christian Romance". (That could be explained by an acquisition, I suppose.)

Obviously, I have real trouble with this approach. It appears to be pandering at best and exploiting the religious determination of others for profit at the other extreme.

So much for the films representing the firmly held beliefs of their creators! I am definitely not impressed."
Feeling deceived

"Netflix listed this as Beauty and the Beast: A Christian Romance, which is wonderful and great. The movie was a perfect romance..then when I googled the actors I find out that they are all LDS/Mormons. I feel deceived because "Christian" (hence in the title) means little anointed one i.e. - Christ is the anointed one. That is NOT what LDS church proclaims so it is a deception to advertise as such."
Sweet, gentle movie.

"This is a sweet story for the gentle soul. No violence, no swearing, no sexual themes. Has an inspirational theme of religion but not overpowering or condescending."
