Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas
Though that's actually a pretty good excuse, it'd be a crime to have Tim Curry play a villain and not give him a Villain Song.
Crowning Music of Awesome: Belle's song, "Stories". Despite the Unfortunate Implications made toward her being a Love Martyr, it's hard not to be inspired by her determination to help him be a better person, especially as it ties back to the Romeo and Juliet scene from "Human Again". ("We will slay the dragons that still follow him around/And he'll smile, yes, he'll smile/As his dreams leave the ground...") It's also one of the best deliveries of the Reading Is Cool Aesop extant, and the animation is unique and memorable thanks to the Art Shift. There's a reason it was included in the opening titles overture and became the film's Leitmotif, even more than "As Long as There's Christmas".
Jerkass Woobie: All Forte wanted was to be useful to the Beast and becoming his best friend , a thing he probably never was when he was human.
Sequelitis: Well, midquelitis, anyway. It's kind of hard to go from the arguable Magnum Opus of the entire Renaissance to a film that can be summed up as "Belle and the Beast defeat an evil gay organ and save Christmas."
Tastes Like Diabetes: With lines like "Christmas, that year was spent exchanging humble gifts, but the greatest gift that anyone received was the gift of hope."
Wangst: Most of it comes from Beast and Angelique.
