When a spell is cast on a spoiled, shallow high school student (Alex Pettyfer) that physically transforms him into someone as unattractive on the outside as he is on the inside, he has one year to find a young woman (Vanessa Hudgens) who will love him despite his hideous form or the spell will last forever.

It's dogged by awkward dialogue, a ridiculous plot and lackluster performances, especially by the leads, Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens.Claudia Puig, USA Today, 03.03.2011
[A] tin-eared, corny attempt at fairy-tale interpretation.Nick Schager, Village Voice, 03.03.2011
