"The Beautician and the Beast" is an enjoyable and entertaining
film, starring actress Fran Drescher as Joy Miller. Drescher, who is
famous for playing the lead role on the television sitcom "The
Nanny" plays a similar role in "The Beautician and the Beast."
Joy, who is from New York, ends up in the fictional European
country of Slovetzia as a teacher to the four children of a widowed
dictator, Boris, played by Timothy Dalton. She ends up becoming more
like a nanny and mother to them.
This was a nice film. Drescher is a very likable actress who
brings an effervescence to the roles she plays. Dalton was very
convincing in his role, as he did a great job with the eastern
European accent and delivered his lines beautifully.
