What to Watch: Beauty and the Beast

There are many things you could do this weekend, and lots and lots of things you could watch (hello, NFL Divisional Weekend!!), but I would like to suggest you get your butt to a movie theater and take in a showing of one of Disney’s most beloved animated classics, Beauty and the Beast.

It’s being rereleased in theaters for a limited engagement (similar to last fall’s The Lion King), so if you missed it the first time around (in 1991, do you feel old now?), here’s your chance! The film is being presented in 3D (fingers crossed that it doesn’t ruin a good thing), but if it were up to me, they’d rerelease it without that annoying teacup CHIP!

If you need yet another reason to go check it out, consider that Beauty and the Beast was the first animated film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture, and it did so back when there were only five spots up for grabs.  (Up and Toy Story 3 have gone on to nab nominations since the pool was expanded to ten.)
