Beauty and the Bastard (Finnish: Tyttö sinä olet tähti; lit.'Girl you are a star') is a 2005 Finnish musical romantic drama film directed by Dome Karukoski and written by Pekko Pesonen. It stars Pamela Tola and Samuli Vauramo. Eero Milonoff, Joonas Saartamo, Mikko Leppilampi and Mikko Kouki play supporting roles. It is the feature-film debut of director Dome Karukoski, who had previous experience from commercials and short films. The music was composed by Jukka Immonen's Friend Music.

In Norway the film was released as Skjønnheten og Bastarden in April 2007. The reception was universally mediocre from the biggest newspapers' critics. VG, Aftenposten, Dagbladet, Dagsavisen and Bergens Tidende all issued a "die throw" of 3.[1][2][3][4][5]
