"Love is never ugly."
Seventeen year-old Kyle (Alex Pettyfer) though spoilt and shallow is one of the most popular boys at his high school. Vain and self-centred he chooses his next victim to humiliate and bully but unwisely chooses Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen) who unbeknown to him is a witch masquerading as a student. Revenge is short and sweet as Kendra transforms Kyle into an unattractive outcast that befits his inner vindictive and nasty personality traits.
Kyle now has one year to find someone to love him or he will remain 'Beastly' forever. To overcome his gross ‘exterior’ Kyle will have to discover a girl who can see through his unattractive features to his inner self and finds Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens) a quiet classmate he'd ever given a second thought. This may be Kyle's only chance to prove that love is never ugly.
