Did Amy Schumer read the script before signing up?
May 4, 2018
An interesting comedy premise, about the superficiality of contemporary metropolitan life, is turned on its head by some shaky plotting and even shakier directorial choices.
May 3, 2018
It is more a parable of how celebrities like Schumer, on becoming successful, suddenly get an inkling of how beautiful people have always felt. I Feel Famous would be an alternative title.
April 29, 2018
Not totally lifeless, but not anything special either.
April 25, 2018
I Feel Pretty is the apparent result of someone advising Amy Schumer to tone down her edginess in order to win a wider audience.
April 25, 2018
I Feel Pretty is the second movie comedy within the last year in which Schumer's inventive artistry is misused.
April 22, 2018
This movie, premised on the idea that self-esteem trumps physical beauty, doesn't even believe in the product it's selling.
April 20, 2018
The most damning aspect of this movie, more damning even than its pandering or blatant commercialism, is how deeply unfunny it is.
April 20, 2018
In what should have been a major breakthrough for this comedian, I Feel Pretty instead becomes a good idea totally hamstrung, gutted, eviscerated by poor writing.
April 20, 2018
Amy Schumer is always fun company. But who the hell thought that making plus-size jokes then simply tacking on a moralizing ending was hilarious? Or acceptable?
April 20, 2018
Female comedians have been self-deprecating about their attractiveness for decades, but the film's corporate sheen and feminist lip service (not to mention an abundance of SoulCycle product placement) feel all too 2018.
April 20, 2018
Schumer's actual chutzpah, so boldly showcased in her stand-up and sketch comedy, is not enough to carry this offensive conceit.
April 20, 2018
There's definitely a movie to be made that takes on society's obsession with appearance in a sharp, focused manner, but "I Feel Pretty" isn't it.
April 19, 2018
In the case of I Feel Pretty, as corny and contrived as the final scenes are, you might actually applaud the message. If not, at least you'll have the proper and fair ammunition to back up your argument.
April 19, 2018
I Feel Pretty is plainly a message movie, but part of the fun is that we're given multiple messages to choose from.
April 19, 2018
The way in which I Feel Pretty presents its message is one of the film's biggest problems. If there's something less subtle than a sledgehammer, it applies here.
April 19, 2018
On the minus side, it muddles its message with an overstuffed script, choppy editing, and some unnecessarily over-the-top moments.
April 19, 2018
Schumer redeems I Feel Pretty by completely and fearlessly buying into the premise, and delivering a few good lines that slice into the shallow idiocy of valuing beauty over brains and celebrities over common folk.
April 19, 2018
At third blush, after I thought about what I'd seen, the premise never had a chance of working out well in the hands of filmmakers whose take on their subject is sitcom-deep.
April 19, 2018
This film is unlikely to impress the Academy, but it'll probably make you feel better about yourself.
