'Beautiful Creatures' Review: Casting Spells with Tongue in Cheek

Southern gothic meets superpowers in the knowingly silly "Beautiful Creatures," like some crazy cross-breeding of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" and the "X-Men." No doubt designed to follow in the human-supernatural-romance footsteps of "Twilight," this new film similarly allows fans of the books (in this case, by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl) to take the proceedings seriously while allowing civilians to chuckle at the delicious excess of it all.
