HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT: Beauty and the Beast

This week’s film for the "Hit me with your best shot” series was “Beauty and the Beast” and I couldn’t be happier. This has to be one of the most charming films ever. It really has everything. It’s touching, funny and sometimes terrifying (that Beast had some serious anger management issues). The characters and the music are so unforgettable, it brought back so many memories. Many people remember this film for the romance, but watching it again reminded me how incredibly humorous it is. Seriously, I was giggling like a little girl throughout the whole thing.

It was really difficult to select one single shot as my favourite this week, since I collected so many comical images. I found this image particularly amusing for its portrayal of the ideal man. The legendary stud Gaston is depicted as a tall, muscular man with a cleft chin, sharp cheekbones and an "incredibly thick" neck. This is taken from the musical number "Gaston" and the lyrics for this particular shot are...

♫Every last inch of me's covered with hair♫

And to top it all off, he's "especially good at expectorating". Hmm...sounds more beast-like than beautiful to me! Really supports the theory that girls like the bad boys.
